Mischo Beauty: Eyelash Exentions at The John Barrett Salon



I've been wanting eyelash extensions for some time now, and I recently had the service performed by Joe at The John Barrett Salon at Bergdorf Goodman. Joe is the lash extension expert at the salon, and after meeting him and learning more about the procedure, I felt as though I was in good hands. The procedure begins with completing a questionnaire to ensure there were no contraindications (medications, contagious diseases, skin disorders, medical conditions or skin irritations) which would have prevented me from receiving the service.



The next part of the service involved Joe applying individual lashes using a semi-permanent bonding glue to each of my lashes, with a total application time of two hours. I requested that the lash extensions look as natural as possible and I was pleased with the outcome! The extensions last 4-6 weeks, with a touch-up needed usually every two weeks (your natural eyelashes shed similar to the hair on the rest of your body).



Now I was advised to refrain from allowing them to get wet the first 24 hours, as well as to avoid swimming, working out, etc. But you all know me, there was no way I was not going to work out! So while I didn't swim, I did work out and I had no major issues with loss/shedding. I will tell you though, that I was definitely due for a touch-up after two weeks.

Overall, I loved them and received tons of compliments- no one knew they were lash extensions and that was the goal! Mission accomplished!

Have you had lash extensions? If so, what was your experience?
