I tried eyelash extensions a few years ago and the results were less than fabulous. They fell out right away and the lashes were very light and I found that I still needed to wear mascara and eyeliner on them despite having eyelash extensions. Having to pay $250 so I would have to wear mascara just did not seem to be worth it. Where was the time saver?
In the last few years I have been in search of many time saving Â beauty treatments and I decided I needed to do permanent make up for my brows and eyeliner and lash extensions so I can roll out of bed ready with a swipe of lipstick and some blush.
Recently, I got back in touch with my stylist Jennifer J of Juan Juan and got a full make over over a couple of visits. I got beach waves from her sister in law Ellie, a precision cut from her husband Sean, highlights from the one and only Jennifer J and eyelash extensions from print and make up artist Casey Lott. Every service I got from Juan Juan was amazing.
Juan Juan Salon was recently named by Elle Magazine as one of the Best Salons in America. Jennifer J works regularly on photo shoots and movie sets. She most recently worked on the set of the Twilight Breaking Dawn movies for all of the stars from Robert Pattinson to Kristen Stewart.
My eyelash extensions were so sturdy and dark, I could forgo mascara. The water based eyeliner I was recommended with Latisse in it worked amazingly well to keep my eyelash extensions on longer. The combo along with my permanent make up gave me a lethal combination to get out of the house in 5 minutes flat when necessary. I love the efficiency of it all.

In the summer you want to be as carefree as possible since it is hot and you may be traveling. This means you will be wearing strapless dresses, shorts, or light tops and tunics. You probably want to spend as little time as possible doing your make up too. I have a solution for you that would make you beauty regimen a thing of the past.
What about just getting eyelash extensions that last the whole summer? The ideal situation would be to get semi permanent or permanent eyeliner if you wear eyeliner and then eyelash extensions and you literally can wake up, put sunscreen, moisturizer, and lip balm on and you are out the door.
How do you find a reputable place that does eyelash extensions? Always read Yelp pages I find they are pretty reliable. If you live in Chicago, Seattle, Boston, San Francisco, Dallas, LA or NYC a quick google search and you will find many places that do eyelash extensions including top salons in the cities.
I recently got my eyelash extensions at a Beverly Hills salon and I cannot think of anything better. I have been told that eyelash extensions are bad for your lashes, but I have had them in for 6 weeks now with fills in between and even had them taken off once and there were no lashes missing.
There are some pros for eyelash extensions:
You do not have to use mascara anymore
You look wide eyed and pretty as soon Â as you get out of bed
You Â do not have to take any eye make up with you when you travel
Your eye make up will not fade all day
Here are a few cons for eyelash extensions:
You may not want to look like you have long lashes all of the time
You may not like the idea of something being glued to your natural lashes
You do not want to have to maintain them every 3 to 4 weeks with refills
Whatever you decide just make sure to do your research.
