How would you like to spend longer in bed, wake up more beautiful naturally and have complete strangers in shops and hair salons compliment you on your eyelashes? Welcome to the world of Perfect Eyelashes.
The salon had a magical Christmas party recently and as tons of celebs turned out to support founder Agnes Dos Santos, the Queen of the eyelashes, and enjoy a chocolate fountain, cake pops and bubbly, I felt confident because my own eyelashes had been transformed by Agnes and her team.
I love the look and feel of these lashes so much that I’ve had it done on multiple occasions. The before and after photos speak for themselves:
People are always fascinated when I tell them I’ve has eyelash extensions. These are the most common questions and how I answer them:
QS: How long do they last?
A: For me, they last about a month. However, you can go in after 3-4 weeks to have some infills to make them last longer.
QS: How long does it take to put them in?
A: It takes about 90 mins, but it’s very relaxing. As you’re lying on a bed, you can drift off to sleep. The Kensingtson salon is within walking distance of Westfield London, so you can fit it into a day’s shopping.
QS: Are they heavy?
A: NO WAY! I didn’t notice I was wearing eyelash extensions until I looked in the mirror. This is so different to most strip lashes, when you can feel the glue irritating your eye.
QS: Will they harm your natural lashes?
A: Quite the reverse. As you’re not wearing mascara and not needing to remove it with chemical eye make-up remover, it’s actually helping your own lashes to get more luscious.
With all these benefits, it’s little wonder celebs like Lily Allen, Lucy Watson and Amy Willerton love Perfect Eyelashes. You never need to put mascara on, you can go swimming or get hot and sweaty dancing without worrying about mascara running and you look way more awake in the morning, even if you don’t feel it during Christmas party season. So many pros and I can’t even think of one con except it can be difficult to get an appointment because the salon is so busy. (Call them on 020 602 7040 to enquire about availability)
From January 2015, the experience will only get better as perfect eyelashes are opening a larger salon, next door to their original near Kensington Olympia tube. It will have more floors, more beds and more space to relax.
Judging by the amount of people at their party, this is much needed. Look at the celebs who attended:
Danielle Armstrong from TOWIE
Toff from Made in Chelsea
Bianca Miller from The Apprentice
Stephanie Nala from X Factor
Trust me, it’s way more effective to get people to do things for you if you have nice lashes. Just flutter them and see what happens!
