Where To Get Your Lash Extensions In Los Angeles
Route London New York | 15 October 2016
As many of you may know, I have been getting eyelash extensions for the past 2 or 3 years. I fell in love with them ever since my first set that I got back when I lived in New York. Since then, I have travelled all over and got my lashes done in multiple locations around London, Vienna, Los Angeles and New York. But today, I am here to share with you my favorite place I've tried so far – Iris + West Lash Co. in Los Angeles.
Iris + West Lash Co.
Located in the heart of West Hollywood, Iris + West is easy to get to form anywhere in L.A.. I was a little hesitant to try new beauty SPA's after my recent move to L.A., so I decided to wait to get a recommendation from someone I could trust.
Iris + West has been recommended to me by none other than beauty blogger Serein Wu from Dress Yourself Happy. If you guys follow her, you know that she is extremely knowledgable in all things skin care, beauty and make up. Talk about a trusted source!
I went in knowing that I would get a professional, care-free treatment, but I was still excited to review the process myself, first-hand.
Amanda, who is the owner and one of the technicians at Iris + West, has done my lashes about 3 times now. She is incredibly meticulous, fast, and most importantly – gentle. Your lashes and the general area around your eyes is extremely sensitive and should be treated with care. I would absolutely recommend seeing Amanda, especially if you are trying eye lash extensions for the very first time. There's no one in L.A. I would trust more with my lashes!
The Lashes + The Wear
Now on to what's really important here – the results!
Iris + West lashes are guaranteed to last from work to the gym to a wild night out. I was impressed by how easy they wear, how light they feel, and how painless it is to sleep with them. Speaking from personal experience I know that extensions can be a pain in the ass to wear, especially if you like to sleep on your stomach or wear a lot of eye make-up on the daily.
You can choose between 100% mink and synthetic mink lashes at Iris + West, and let me tell you, both feel extremely soft and very much like your natural lashes. Amanda applies them so close to your own lash line that removing make up becomes a walk in the park. I've seriously have never worn softer lashes in my three years of experience!!
