After dropping Itty Bitty off, I made my way into the beauty boutique. The salon was buzzing, women getting their hair done amidst friendly chatter filling the air. I perused the countertop which was covered in gorgeous jewelry. Denise, the (fabulous) owner of Calma Salon, greeted me with warmth and a cool beverage.
Denise went over the eyelash extension process, and why they choose to use NovaLash at her salon. After going through all of the proper NovaLash training, she explained that she prefers NovaLash because they are the leader in safe, beautiful, flawless eyelash extensions that enhance any woman’s natural beauty.
So what are NovaLash Eyelash Extensions?
They are lash extensions that are worn daily – you don’t have to take them off each night. Each synthetic lash is bonded onto a single natural lash. You don’t have an awkward strip, and even close up – people wouldn’t be able ot tell the difference. It honestly looks like your natural lash.
How Long Do NovaLashes Last?
When applied by a certified stylist like Denise, NovaLash extensions can be worn all year with minimal monthly maintenance – it’s recommended that you visit your lash professional at least every four weeks. Think about it this way – your eye lashes naturally shed and fall off, and when they do, your NovaLashes fall off with them. When you go see Denise, you’ll be able to have her refill any lashes that cycled off.
Are Lash Extensions Harmful?
This was super important for me to know. I had worn nail extensions for a year or so in my late twenties, and they actually did some pretty bad damage to my nails. I was worried that lash extensions might do the same.
Denise (in addition to the research I did online) assured me that when applied properly, NovaLash extensions will not do any harm to my natural lashes. The reason is because of the application technique, when Denise bonds the NovaLash to a single natural lash.
Since I will not be removing the NovaLashes, and I will just allow them to fall off naturally with the lash that they are bonded to, I will not be damaging my own lashes in the process.
Can I Wear Makeup?
From the pictures I saw online, it looked like I wouldn’t ever have to worry about wearing mascara while my NovaLashes are on. I am allowed to wear all sorts of makeup, and Denise told me that I could wear water-soluble (not waterproof) mascara if I really wanted to, but it really wouldn’t be needed.
Care For NovaLashes:
Denise also told me that I would need to keep my new lashes conditioned to help extend their life. There is special NovaLash conditioning/cleansing pads, or I could even use baby oil. I she also recommended that I use a lash wand or comb to make sure the lashes were free of tangled.
I am so thankful to the team at Calma Salon, especially Denise – for helping this Tall Mom feel like a beauty queen each morning when I wake up! These eyelash extensions are especially perfect for me because Tall Dad and I have a few weddings coming up, and doing my eyelashes (curling, mascara, glueing the strips on, etc) will be one less thing I need to worry about.
