Read this before your first lash appointment!

Once you start wearing eyelash extensions, you will never want to go back to mascara or falsies again. At Eye Design, we recommend this life-changing beauty treatment for everyone--that is why we offer a range of techniques from Natural to Dramatic and beyond. If your first appointment is coming up soon (or you are thinking of scheduling your first-ever lash appointment), trust the experts at Eye Design to guide you through the entire process flawlessly!

First time trying eyelash extensions? It is a life-changing procedure that will make you feel beautiful day in and day out for weeks on end. You will be amazed at how much time you save getting ready each day when you have lash extensions! Imagine waking up each morning

For first-timers, the Eye Design team recommends a Natural Set, the lightest of our four options for volume. During this process, 2 to 3 eyelash extensions will be placed on each of your natural lashes individually. It was developed by our studio’s founder and Master Technician Nadia Afanaseva to give clients a “your lashes but better” effect and has since become one of our most-loved signature looks. What do you think of the before and after of this Natural Set by our Top Technician Anastasia?

In addition to first-timers, our Natural Set is ideal for non-makeup wearers and “no makeup” makeup lovers. A Natural Set at Eye Design always results in soft volume, length and curl. It is subtle enough to look completely natural (hence its name), but beautiful enough to transform your entire face!

All of Eye Design’s technicians are expertly trained by Nadia to deliver flawless customized results to every client. We take each client’s one-of-a-kind look into consideration before we begin the lash application process. Every client receives a style that is as unique as they are; one that works in perfect harmony with his or her facial features. We know all the classic styles, like cat and doll, as well as more advanced styles, like fox and honeybee. Find your go-to style in our studio or discover a new favorite at your next appointment.

The style you and your technician choose does not affect the volume of your lashes or vice versa. No matter which style you choose, we never sacrifice the volume level you choose! Our technicians create each style using different lash lengths and curls, not different volume levels.

Our styles are developed to flatter and enhance certain eye/face shapes. For example, cat elongates the eyes and visually lifts the outer corners. Doll, on the other hand, opens the eyes and gives them a wide-awake round shape. If you do not have a particular style in mind, don’t worry! Your expert Eye Design technician will help you decide what will look best.

In addition to your unique features, you should also take your lifestyle into consideration when choosing a shape. For example, if you prefer a lowkey, no-makeup effect, you should choose our classic Natural or Round style. On the other hand, if you’re on the hunt for something more glamorous, we suggest you choose a Cat or Fox effect!

Eyelash extensions are truly a versatile treatment and the talented, experienced technicians at Eye Design can create any looks their clients desire. We love keeping up with the latest beauty trends in order to give our clients the fashionable looks they want! (Our signature Kim’s Effect technique is a product of pop-culture demands!)

All of Eye Design’s lash sets--from Natural to Kim’s Effect--last 4 to 6 weeks. To schedule a Full Set or a Refill, call us at (917) 300-0317. Click here to learn more!
