Now Offering Lavish Lashes!

 

Lash Extensions are an exciting, new product and technique for thicker, longer, yet natural looking eyelashes. Eyelashes are made thicker and longer through professional application of  individual synthetic eyelash onto your own natural eyelash with a specially formulated bonding agent.   Lash extensions are not strip lashes or three pronged, cluster lashes.   They are individual, synthetic hairs that look just like your own natural lash hairs.

Lavish Lashes Professional Eyelash Extensions are semi-permanent, lasting four to six weeks depending on the life cycle of your own natural lashes and other factors. Though the average cycle of a single lash is about 90 days, factors such as your eyelash characteristics, lifestyle, and general care of your lashes will affect how long your Lavish Lashes last.eyelashes01

Now Offering Copper Bowl Pedicures!

Soaking feet in a Copper bowl can help to achieve a healthier immune system as well as help with joint pain from conditions like arthritis.

Positive and negative magnetic fields created by copper help energy flow through the body. Ionized copper was used by ancient Egypt to purify water.

In addition the body absorbs small amounts of copper into the blood stream. In the blood stream, copper binds together with enzymes. These enzymes are used to aid in the creation of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is necessary for the body to repair and heal itself. Copper is a vital part of the body’s immune system.

Along with our organic nail polish and essential oils, your feet will sure be thanking you!

Call Cassondra at 630-715-8423 for more information or to schedule an appointment.

We Love the 90’s!

Although flaunted in varying iterations-from teeny-tiny braids to prepubescent pigtails-the decade marked by baggy jeans and Doc Martens is back in a big way. Well, at least in terms of beauty!

What’ s old about it: Come on.. we’re talking about the ‘90s!

What’s new: The past decade’s trends get a modernized update. Little-girl-gone-edgy pigtails (made popular by pop princesses Baby Spice and Brittany Spears) gain traction in wilder incarnations, and hair accessories like visible hair ties and bobby pins function to soften more mature ensembles. Zulu knots, braids, and visible pins have been seen on countless catwalks. Just remember to keep the look updated!

Fall Special August Through October: Glo Pumpkin Berry Facials

Exfoliation: Did You Know . . .

As we age our Cell Renewal Factor (CRF) or cell turnover rate slows down. Cell Turnover is the process by which our skin produces new skin cells which travel from the lowest layer of the epidermis to the top layer and then shed off the skin. This is what keeps dead cells from building up on the skin surface.

Our Cell Renewal Factors changes as we age:

Babies- 14 days

Teenagers- 21-28 days

Middle Age- 28-42 days

50 and up- 42-84 days

That means as we age the top layer of skin, the one we see, touch, and even agonize over becomes dull. We lose our “glow”. This is why your esthetician will recommend and encourage you to practice exfoliation, whether it is through facials, chemical exfoliation treatments, or products.

Our new autumn Pumpkin Berry Facial brightens, tightens, and exfoliates down to your best ‘glo’, while including a moisturizing cucumber mask and a relaxing, aromatic orange tea massage to get you into the fall spirit.

Individual $75 or $150 for a package of three.

The Top Three Brow Mistakes

3. The obvious Fill in Brow: These are brows filled in or elongated with the wrong-colored powder or pencil, or brows that look like makeup, not hair. Most women go too dark, which makes the brows look heavy, artificial, and blocklike, or use straight strokes that look like they’re drawn on.

THE FIX: use a powder or pencil at least a few shades lighter than the color of your hair and apply in small strokes to mimic hair and give a 3-D effect.

2. The “Surprised” Look: Round brows that are semicircles with no arch. They make a woman look like she’s constantly in a state of surprise.

THE FIX: While they grow out, tweeze only the “homeless” strays that are way below your brows or edging toward your temples. Use a brow powder to fill in sparse areas as brows grow back. To reshape them, the pro will re-create an arch for you and lift the ends up instead of down.

1. The “Anorexic” Brow: Brows that are too thin don’t do their job- which is to frame your face and accent your eyes-or so painfully thin they look obviously plucked.

THE FIX: Fill them in lightly and slightly while you let them grow; but often brows that have been plucked again and again never do grow out. Beverly Hills celebrity dermatologist Boris Zaks says using Latisse grows brows too, though it’s not approved by the FDA for this purpose. Ask your dermatologist. index
