A brow lamination is a similar process to a lash lift. The process essentially involves straightening eyebrow hair using a keratin setting solution, so that they all stand in the desired direction. Most brows have some curl to them so when they are straightened into place, the result is a more voluminous, yet natural-looking arch. We like to say it’s like “a blow-out for your brows”. This service includes a vegan based tint for the brows as well.
First a silicone rod is placed on the eyelid then the lashes are temporarily set onto the rod and isolated using a water soluble adhesive. We then use a lash lift solution that gently curls the eyelashes and sets them into place for approximately 6 weeks. Our lash lift is enriched with proteins, amino acids and vitamin complex ingredients such as keratin, biotin, and hydrolysed collagen to help restore proteins, speed up cell generation, and increase moisture levels to the hair which allows lashes to appear groomed and fuller. The last step of the lash lift process is to tint and deep condition with plant based products.
Classic lash extensions are a single, individual eyelash extension placed on each natural lash of the upper lash line. For volume lash extensions, an individual, handmade fan of eyelash extensions is placed on each natural lash of the upper lash line. Classic lash extensions give a more natural appearance, while volume lash extensions are fuller and can be much more dramatic. We also offer mega volume extensions. Mega volume is typically recommended for special occasions. Mega volume is a larger, longer fan attached to each individual lash.
A Classic Lash Set, Volume Lash Set, or Mega Volume Set are the available options if you would like to book lash extensions, and currently do not have them. These options differ based on the desired look and fullness of the lashes.
A New Client Fill is the available option for clients who are new to our studio and currently have lash extensions. There are options for Classic, Volume, and Mega Volume. We book extra time for the new client fill in but cannot always guarantee that we will be able to work on another artists’ work.
This is a spray tan created using an organic, sugar based solution. The bronze is custom blended for your undertones and skin type, and lasts around 6-10 days. If desired, we can add an anti-aging formula to the solution to aid in both the prevention and reduction of the skin’s aging process.
Dermaplaning is the gentle and precise removal of fine vellus hair and dead skin cells leaving a smoother, brighter complexion. Dermaplaning aids in overall skin exfoliation and allows for deeper penetration of products. Suitable for most skin types.
