Oh Baby, I'm Advanced Certified

I believe my Lash business success is a combination of two things: superior skills and a little swag.  For those of you who aren't familiar with the word, "SWAG," I like to describe it as a sassy confidence.  And my clients know--I've got a little DIVA swag in me for sure (ok, I'm a serious DIVA). I even wear an apron while doing lashes that pretty much spells it out.  Picture to come soon!

Back to the swag.  I've got it.  And now, I've got the ADVANCED NOVALASH Certification to back it up.  Yes, I've been Certified by NovaLash and I've done some schwankity lashes, but now I've got a few more tricks in my bag of lash skills.  I've been trained and approved by Sophia Navarro, world-wide lash guru and TOP NovaLash Extensionist from Houston, Texas.  Check her out HERE.  

So, come see me: the now Advanced Trained Lashionista.  I'll give you some super fab lashes--Promise!

Wedding Photos from a Special Client

I've had the pleasure of getting to know Jodi this past year when I started doing her lashes for her wedding. 

Like many of you already know: Lashes are ADDICTING!  So, Jodi has been back many times since her wedding for fill-ins. 

She is a beautiful woman--inside and out--and I've really enjoyed getting to know her.  She recently shared with me some of her breathtaking wedding photos (a few good ones of her lashes).

Lashing Out in The Studio

I turned 30-something in December and received a very precious gift for my studio.

My dear client and friend, Ali Richards, surprised me with a dozen or so photos of my lash work, framed in various ways, highlighting some of my favorite lash looks.  I had mentioned to her how I would love to decorate my space with pics of eyes that I had lashed out and she made it happen. 

Thanks so much, Ali!!

Candied Lashes Put a Sparkle in Your Wink

Love your NovaLashes?  Yeah, me too!  My one-of-a-kind-she's-the-greatest intern, Katie, has been practicing her mad lash skills on me and she's doing a fantabulous job (Not a word? Who cares?!!)!  Check out Katie's Candied Lashes HERE

So, in the spirit of winter and to fight the dreary cold, I have asked her to glam me up a bit with some of NovaLash's Candied Lashes.  These are lash extensions that are covered in a micro-fine glitter, adding just a tiny bit of shimmer to your full set of lash extensions.

Candied Lashes come in the following colors:  
Cinnamon Toast (brown), Blue Raspberry (blue), Mint Chocolate Chip (green), Pink Lemonade (pink), Butterscotch (gold), Sugar Plum (purple), & Licorice (black)

Check out my pricing page for more information about options for these super fun lashes!

It's time to go big!

Hey ladies! It’s Katie, Amy’s intern, again. I just wanted to do a quick reminder post about how beneficial lash extensions can be to you. Not only are they affordable and pain-free to have applied, but they also really add to your appearance, and essentially your confidence. Because I work for Amy, I have lash extensions of course, and I can’t imagine not having them! They are the best thing EVER. I recently started using the NovaLash lash liner and that was basically the icing on the cake. Seriously, next time you are putting mascara on, just think about the time and effort you could be saving to have even better, more natural looking lashes that are on all the time!

If you’re not convinced yet, check out these celebs with and without make-up on. The eyes really are the most important part when doing your make-up and these celebs go big with their lashes. It’s time you go big, too! Call Amy today for your appointment!

Woop! Woop! Lash Liners are IN

I've been on a waiting list for these babies since like 2009...okay, maybe not that long, but it's been a LOOONNGGG time.  NovaLash always has their Award-Winning LashLiner on backorder. But 2012 looks like it's going to be promising!  I just received my first shipment of LashLiners and they are Five Stars!!!  I know they won't last long at my studio, so if you want yours reserved, please EMAIL ME (lovethoselashes@gmail.com) and I will send you an invoice for the LashLiner and after you pay, I'll ship it to you for FREE.  Gotta love that! 

Here's the scoop:
The NovaLash Lash Liner is a micro-fine tipped black pencil that is designed to get in-between your lashes and lash extensions to make your lash line fuller and darker.  It's different than an eyeliner which lines your eye; this lines your lashes!  It also has a lash brush on the other end for fluffing your lashes.  And comes with its own sharpener.  Get yours before they're gone!  $22, plus tax/Free shipping
