Noir Lash Lounge is a Vancouver based company specializing in semi-perminent lash extensions and it just opened a location in Calgary! On Tuesday I was invited to Noir Lash Lounge to try out their services. I'd heard of lash extensions before, and just recently had heard even more talk about it, but was a little hesitant to try it out myself. The staff at Noir Lash Lounge was extremely helpful in answering my millions of questions (How long will it take, how long will it last, are they heavy, can I take them off if I don't like them, what if I can't stop once I start?...) and the atmosphere was so relaxing, you could hardly feel nervous once inside. The experience of getting my lashes done was very relaxing as well. I stretched out on a chaise lounge, closed my eyes and chatted away with my lash technician. I could hardly even feel her adding the extensions to my lashes, and when it was done, I couldn't even feel them!
My first reaction when I peered into a mirror was a bit of shock. Almost like when you get a new haircut. You don't recognize yourself for a moment, even though the difference is subtle. I was also a little self conscious at first, worried that everyone would be starring at me. I'm now on day 4 with my new lashes, and most of the time I don't even remember they are there until I look in the mirror, and even then I have to remind myself, "Those aren't your real lashes!" I was worried that having lash extensions would make my lashes look outrageous, but my mom didn't comment on them, so I'm guessing they look fairly natural. One thing I am really loving is not wearing mascara. I have a feeling I'll be heading back to Noir Lash Lounge is 3 or so weeks to get a touch up. I love these lashes! Thank you so much Noir Lash Lounge!
