    Have you had your extensions done before? I'm afraid they will make my real lashes fall out.

    Your natural lashes do have a shedding cycle and new lashes grow in as they fall out. After 4 refills, I have the lashes completey removed and a new set installed.  At first I thought I ruined my lashes, but after looking at youself in the mirror with the extensions, you get use to it and forget what your natural lashes actually look like. I took pics and compared my lashes after removal to the first before pic and they're the same...no shorter or whispier than they ever were.

    I'm obsessed!!! They look so lovely :) I definitely agree with you on finding a good tech, I've seen people get them done by someone inexperienced and  their lashes were going in all sorts of directions.... Does it matter what type of lashes they use (i.e. extreme lashes vs. lavish lashes)??  Maybe I'm over thinking this lol...  

     

    I've been using Latisse for 2 years now and I love it, but I still need to wear mascara to get the look I want....Maybe i'll get a trial this summer!?! Watch me get hooked :)

        You guys have me on mission!  I've been talking about it so much one of my friends wants to as well!

        I would think Chicago has got to have someone that can do it well.  If I can find a Groupon deal, I think this might be on my schedule!

          I've been thinking about this since my friend from Dallas came to visit me and her lashes were done and fabulous!! I'm hurt wondering who in my town can do them as well and that price is painful! I'm hesitant that using a groupon will send me to a salon that doesn't have much experience! Hmmmm

          I feel your pain, crazzyyyy expensive! For eyelashes lol!!!  I'm also hesitant with groupons too bc I sometimes feels that they're trying to get you there bc they dont have enough buisness. If we're lucky, maybe a Groupon will come out for a place with an AMAZING reputation
