Catching Zzz’s With Lash Extensions: Tips From Our Expert…

Sleeping with lash extensions: Should you sleep on your back? Should you use a certain pillowcase or mask?

Today, we have answers for you, plus some great tips from our incredible training tribe here at The Lash Lounge!

HOW TO SLEEP

When you have eyelash extensions, we recommend you catch your zzz’s on your back. This ensures that each precious lash will stay in place, remain untouched and not encounter any tugging during those nights you find yourself tossing and turning.

If you’re not a back sleeper, we know it may be tough for you. If sleeping on your side is how you’re most comfy, then that’s A-ok, too! Just know that if you are a side sleeper, it is not uncommon if you notice a couple lashes on your pillow from time to time.

HOW NOT TO SLEEP

Stomach sleepers, we have some bad news: Your fave sleep position and lash extensions are not the best match.

To get the longest life out of your lashes, try to avoid sleeping on your stomach because this position will catch your lashes in between you and your pillow, compromising their perfect shape and speeding up the shedding process.

PILLOW TALK

What you have heard is true: The type of pillowcase you choose can have an effect on your lashes.

Cotton

So, what’s the deal with a usual cotton pillowcase? While a cotton pillowcase can feel ultra-soft, cotton causes increased friction between your lashes and the material, resulting in premature lash shedding.

Silk

This brings us to silk pillowcases! Resting your head and lashes on a silk pillowcase is ideal when you have eyelash extensions. Not only will it allow your lashes and the extensions themselves to glide on the surface while you sleep, but you will also avoid any lashes getting caught or pulled like when you use a cotton pillowcase.

Here are some more awesome benefits of sleeping on a silk pillowcase:
It’s better for the hair on your head due to all the tossing and turning you may due at night.
It can help prevent the appearance of facial wrinkles, assist in keeping your skin smooth and help prevent acne!

EYE MASKS: DO THEY HELP?

Many of our guests often wonder if sleeping with an eye mask is a good idea, so we asked our amazing corporate trainer, Ambrielle, about this very topic. She shared, “I have mixed emotions about using masks with lash extensions. I find that the wrong type of mask can cause more harm than good (i.e. smashing the lashes, retention issues, etc.) However, I would recommend the right kind of mask where the socket area is beveled out so there is no direct contact with the mask and the lash extensions.”


So, there you have it! Whether you sleep on your back or rest your tired head on a silk pillowcase, there are ways you can get that much-needed beauty sleep while also keeping each and every lash in place.

Promote Hair and Lash Growth With These 7 Superfoods

Genetics, age and lifestyle are just a few of the things that can play a role in the growth of our hair and even our lashes. And the truth is some of us need a little extra help in this department. Of course, vitamins and growth serums help, but so can something as simple as adding certain foods to our regular diet. Which ones, you ask? We’re dishing them out below!

1. AVOCADOS

If you love a good guacamole or simply just enjoy eating avocado, then you’re already on the right track. Full of vitamin E, avocados are a great food source because they offer antioxidants that keep free radicals in check. This helps fight oxidative stress in our bodies, which is good because this stress is a big contributor to hair loss. Adding this food to your diet can help relieve your body of that stress and keep those locks flowing.

Fatty acids are also found in this superfood; if our bodies are lacking these, they can play a role in how much our hair can grow. Since we do not produce fatty acids in our body naturally, eating avocados is a surefire nutrition win!

2. SWEET POTATOES

Did you know that biotin, vitamin A, vitamin B5 (among many more) are found in sweet potatoes? These not only keep your hair and lashes healthy, but also growing! Sure, you could take supplements that contain all of the above, but simply incorporating sweet potatoes into your diet on a regular basis sounds like way more fun!

If you have heard of biotin, you probably remember hearing it in conversations about hair. In fact, biotin is often referred to as the “H” vitamin, which is a nickname from two German words: haar and haut. What do these two words mean? Hair and skin!

3. NUTS

“Sometimes you feel like a nut”…you know the rest. Nuts are amazing for hair and lash growth. Adding nuts of all kind to your daily diet is an easy way to get the vitamin E, fatty acids and amino acids that your lashes and hair so desperately need in order to stay healthy and keep growing.

One amino acid in particular called l-arginine is actually a form of protein which is often used to help treat hair loss and even baldness. Whether you like cashews, almonds, peanuts or any nut, each type consumed in a healthy portion is so very good for you.

You know what we love most about this food? Many types of nuts are often packaged in great, single-serving sizes, making them ideal for carrying with you on the go.

4. SALMON

This seafood favorite is another that is highly rich in omega-3 fatty acids and is good for our eyes, bones, brain function and so much more. When consumed often, it can be truly incredible when it comes to the thickness and overall growth of our lashes and hair.

Along with the many other minerals and vital vitamins our bodies need, salmon is rich in vitamin B and D, which promote the growth of hair and eyelashes. Whether you’re dining in or out, be sure to add some salmon to the menu!

5. MUSHROOMS

Most people either love or hate mushrooms. Which camp are you in? If you are a mushroom fan, then you’re in luck! For every cup of cooked mushrooms, you could get approximately 40% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin B3, which is known to rehydrate and nourish the hair follicles in order to make them stronger.

If you have brittle hair, then foods like mushrooms are a no-brainer! Whether you sauté them, throw them in a salad or get creative in the kitchen, add some mushrooms to the mix. Your hair and lashes WILL thank you!

6. EGGS

Scrambled, hard boiled, poached—how do you like your eggs? If you are a fan of this protein-rich food, then you’re already in the hair-growth game. That’s because our hair (and lashes) are greatly made up of proteins. If our bodies are protein-deficient, then our hair and lashes can greatly suffer. So, eat those eggs, people!

If you’re more of an egg white person, high-fives to you. However, to get the full benefits of all the goodness eggs have to offer, eat both the white and the yolk.

7. GREEK YOGURT (WITH A DASH OF CINNAMON, TOO!)

One vitamin you’ll see a lot in hair products is vitamin B5. It’s no accident; B5 promotes not just the overall health of hair, but also its growth! We’ll give you one guess what food is also full of this source. Yep, Greek yogurt! Eat it with your favorite fruit or healthy toppings or add it to a smoothie to get that helpful serving in each day.

No matter how you like to eat it, you’ll also be giving your body an extra boost of vitamin D, known to help our lashes and lovely locks grow longer and stay healthy.

Wait! One last question: Do you like cinnamon? If you do, then dash some of this delicious spice onto your Greek yogurt because it can help your hair, too. Cinnamon supports the increase of blood flow in our bodies; when more oxygen and nutrients are getting to our hair follicles, the faster, stronger and longer our hair can grow!


Raise your hand (or bat your lashes) if you learned something today! All in all, when your hair is healthy and growing, then your lashes will be, too.

So, have your splurges here and there (hello, Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey) but try, try, try to add these foods (and many of the other beneficial superfoods) to your diet however you can. Your hair, health and wellness will reap the benefits!

Spring Lash Shedding + What You Need to Know

Never heard of lash shedding? Wondering what it is, what happens and why during certain seasons? Good news—you’re not alone! Since spring has officially sprung, we’re sharing why you might be more likely to find a stray lash here and there this season.

WHAT IS LASH SHEDDING?

Whether you have lash extensions or not, we all experience lash shedding. Remember when you were young and noticed a single lash hair on your cheek and then you would make a wish? Yes, that was lash shedding in action!

This natural occurrence happens to everyone. Our lashes fall out in cycles, completely replenishing approximately every 60–90 days. But don’t be alarmed! This is a healthy part of our hair-growth routine. In fact, on average, we lose up to 20% of our natural lashes every two weeks; depending on our own individual hair-growth cycles, a person can shed between 1 and 5 natural eyelashes a day.

A new eyelash has already been growing to replace the lash that falls out and for most of us, we don’t even notice!

WHY DOES LASH SHEDDING HAPPEN? (AND WHY IN THE SPRING?)

While we experience lash shedding year-round, many of us notice that our lashes shed more during certain seasons, like in the spring. Why does this happen and why during this time of year? It’s really quite simple. During the spring season, our bodies start preparing for warmer temps and warmer weather. It’s during this natural process that our body will increase oil production to help keep not only our hair, but also our skin from getting dehydrated. So, it is common for all of us to experience additional shedding with not just our hair, but also our lashes.

WHAT TO DO + WHAT TO KNOW

There’s not much you can do to prevent lash shedding, since it is after all a natural process. But something to keep in mind is that when your natural lashes shed, your extensions shed with them. But as long as you keep up with your regular lash refill appointments every 2–3 weeks, your lash line will stay full and gorgeous just how you like it!

Another key thing to remember when experiencing the lash shedding cycle is to keep your lash extensions clean. Since spring is a big time for allergies, this can cause additional buildup to increase on and around your lash line. Use a lash extension-safe cleanser to keep them squeaky clean. It’s always a good idea to brush your lashes each day with a clean lash wand, too.


All in all, this is a natural process and no cause for alarm—we promise! Just as certain animals shed their winter coats, so do us humans, just in a different way.

If you do have lash extensions and ever have a concern about how many lashes you are shedding, chat with your lash stylist. After all, they are the experts when it comes to all things lashes and they are there to put your mind at ease and offer tips every step of the way!

14 Resolutions All Women Should Make for the New…

It’s almost time to say goodbye to 2018 and hello to 2019! Whether for your health, body or mind, see these 14 resolutions that all women should make for the new year!

1. Give Yourself 30 Minutes Of “Me Time” A Week

Relieving stress is a great goal, but pretty hard to grab if you don’t pinpoint how to do it. One way: Set aside 30 minutes a week for some quiet time by yourself. You can use this time to meditate, journal, walk in nature, or simply just breathe. Now that’s a New Year’s resolution idea you can probably get behind. (via womenshealthmag.com)

2. Give Yourself More Compliments

Repeat after us: “Today is my day. I’m thankful for me.” Positive self-talk can help you focus on what’s good in your life, says psychologist Joy Harden Bradford, Ph.D. Research shows that a little vitamin G (for gratitude) can make you feel happier and more satisfied and even improve your sleep. “If you repeat an affirmation related to gratitude in the morning, you’re likely to show and feel more of it throughout that day,” Bradford says. You’re so welcome! (via goodhousekeeping.com)

3. Ask For Help

We’re specifically talking to you, moms. It takes a village to raise a family, and that means you deserve help on this journey through parenthood. Pretending you can do it all only hurts you and, inevitably, your family because it leaves you emotionally and mentally depleted. Whether it’s asking your spouse to take over the chores or hiring an extra set of hands to give you a break, you deserve the help and should resolve to ask for it in 2019 – and beyond. (via mom.me)

5. Get Healthy

Every year, you say it (and you might even give it an honest effort before throwing in the towel), but 2019 is officially the year of reclaiming your health. The trick? Throw away your preconditioned ideas about weight and clothing size, and focus on being truly healthy. That means exercising to keep your heart and mind active, eating a mostly healthy diet (with the occasional indulgence) and taking care of your mental health to help remove roadblocks to your success. (via mom.me)

6. Write To Yourself

When your inner critic picks up her bullhorn, jot down the kind words you’d say to a friend in the same situation. “We have such a hard time channeling compassion for ourselves,” says Emma Seppala, Ph.D., of Stanford’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research. “Writing it down makes it easier to shift perspective.”(via goodhousekeeping.com)

7. Embrace Your Figure

Before you make any  fashion resolutions, the first step is to get familiar with the shape of your body and fully embrace it. What may look good on a pear shaped figure will most likely not suit an apple shaped one. Knowing your body shape and what suits it will help you grow your confidence and ensure you always look good, no matter what you wear, even when you’re wearing a swimsuit. ( via joyfulsource.com)

8. Get Your Life On A Schedule

If you regularly use the word “chaos” to describe your family’s daily life, then let us introduce you to the magic of a day planner for 2019. Having a set daily schedule that includes waking up, meals, activities, appointments, bedtime and more, will help your family operate like a well-oiled machine. While adapting to a new schedule can initially be rough, once everyone adjusts, the chaos will give way to calm and comfort. (via mom.me)

12. Do One Thing At A Time

Multitasking doesn’t make you more efficient, but it does stress you out, says mindfulness expert Pedram Shojai, author of The Art of Stopping Time. “If your focus is fragmented, you’ll likely find yourself getting anxious as new items come up when old ones are still incomplete,” he says. Instead, he suggests, organize your activities into chunks of time, such as kid time and cooking time, and then “commit to being focused in that allotted time and see what happens.” (via goodhousekeeping.com)

6 Ways to Transform the Usual Smoky Eye

One of the easiest ways to glam up any look  is with a great smoky eye. Consider stepping outside of the box this holiday season and try one of these unique looks below to transform the usual smoky eye into a show stopping look.

Emerald Smoky Eyes

Instead of making a statement with the usual red lip, make one with a bold smoky eye, but in green. The perfect green eyeshadow paired with volume lashes will make any holiday look pop, just as we see below on actress and singer, Lucy Hale.

Smoky Wings

Bringing the smoky shadow out along the corners of each eyelid gives an even more dramatic, smokier look with a sultry wing effect, which is sure to take your holiday glam game up a notch! Just see how fabulous this look is on model, Bella Hadid.

Subtly Smoky

Because sometimes less IS more, we love the idea of a subtle smoky eye, as seen below on Eiza González. A faint eyeshadow with a hint of shimmer is the way to go to achieve this elegant look.

Smoky Gold

A gilded smoky eye never looked so good, just as we see below on Nicole Richie who completed her look with classic, full lashes. Try ‘going for the gold’ this season and select a shadow with a shimmery gold tone and try this look for yourself!

(image via allure.com)


Smoke ‘n Glitter

A smoky eye should never be limited to only dark gray shades, but can work beautifully when glittery, warm tones are used. Just see how fabulous Emma Stone’s eyes look! We also really love how the smoky look was not just applied to her top lid, but also underneath along her lower lash line for an even more sultry look. #bowchicawowwow

Blue Smoky Eyes

Try taking the usual smoky eye up a notch by accenting the look with a pop of blue in the inner corners, just as Kelly Rowland did. Then of course, her lashes complete the look with the perfect amount of length and curl.

Our 4-Step Eyelash Extension Customization Process

No client, their eye shape or their natural lashes are the same, which is why here at The Lash Lounge we take our client consultations very seriously. We want to determine a custom lash style to fit you and your life. How, you ask? See below for details on our 4-step eyelash extension customization process.

1. Face Mapping

Our Face Mapping system allows our stylists to determine the client’s eye profile. All eyes fall into 1 of 3 profiles and each eye can even be a different profile. Based on which profile each eye is, indicates which lash design will look the best. Our face mapping system provides a fool-proof, perfect lash design for each eye, every time.

 2. Lash & Curl Type

Our stylists strive to educate our guests on which lash curl is best for them and also which texture, Silk or Mink. We offer 3 different lash curls: C curl, D curl and L+ curl. (Stay tuned for more info coming soon to the blog on the textures and curls.)

3. Longest Length

To determine what the longest lash length is, our stylists consider the following: 1) The length of the natural hair 2) The condition of the natural hair 3) The desired look of the guest. If a guest requests a longer length, the stylist can use a thinner extension or suggest the client upgrade to mink lashes which are lighter in weight and won’t damage the integrity of the natural hair.

4. Application Method & Lash Thickness

The final step to the customization process our stylists conduct is selecting which type of application method the guest prefers (Classic Lashes or Volume Lashes) and which lash thickness will work best with their natural hairs.

After the stylist has completed the 4-step guest consultation, they will then complete the guest’s custom design code. Below is an example of how that design code is determined:

Design: Straight, Upward, Downward
Curl: C, D, L+
Lash Type: Silk or Mink
Length: List the longest lash length selected (i.e. 12mm)
Method: Classic or Volume
Thickness: .06, .07, .10, .15, .18

The Truth About the Most Common Lash Extension Myths

From whether your natural lashes will be damaged to lash extensions are one size fits all, we’re sharing the truth about the most common lash extension myths on our blog today!

MYTH 1: Having lash extensions applied could hurt or feel uncomfortable.

TRUTH: The process of having lash extension applied does not hurt and should never cause discomfort if they are being applied by a trained lash stylist. Actually, the lash extension application process is a very relaxing experience and many clients enjoy a nap, or ‘lash naps’ as we like to call them. So if you have ever heard that having lash extensions applied can hurt or be uncomfortable, this is not true. No pain should ever be involved during lash extension applications. What is involved is a luxury, spa like experience to make you relax!


MYTH 2: Eyelash extensions could damage my natural lashes. 

TRUTH: When you combine premium products and trained lash stylists with proper application techniques, then your natural lashes should never be damaged. During the lash application process, it’s imperative to the health of your lashes to have each natural hair isolated when an extension is adhered to it and ensure proper separation so that the hairs can continue to grow and shed as they would naturally. At The Lash Lounge, we only use formaldehyde-free, medical-grade adhesives which are made exclusively for lash extensions. The combination of our top quality adhesive plus the individual lash attachment will sustain the health and integrity of your natural lash hairs indefinitely.


MYTH 3: My natural lashes will be shorter if/when I decide to have my extensions removed. 

TRUTH: When eyelash extensions are applied by a trained lash stylist, your natural lashes are allowed to grow as usual. Women without lash extensions usually apply and remove mascara every day. The application and slight pulling of lashes when applying mascara followed by the cleaning and rubbing of your eyes to remove the mascara can greatly damage your lashes. With a proper lash extension application, there will be no damage and your lashes should grow better than they would if you were applying, wearing and cleaning off mascara day to day. So the myth that your natural lashes could be shorter if you were to remove your extensions is not true.


MYTH 4: Eyelash extensions are one size fits all and my lashes will look just like my friend’s lashes after she got her lash extensions. 

TRUTH: All of us have different eye shapes as well as a different number of natural lashes. What does this mean? It means that lash extensions can be (and should be) customized just for YOU. It also means that your lash extensions may not look just like your friend’s lash extensions since you both have different eye shapes and different amounts of natural lashes. Here at The Lash Lounge, we specialize in safe and customized eyelash extensions. Using our custom-built mapping system, our stylists are trained to implement our exclusive techniques which tailors a perfect design for each individual’s unique eye shape, lifestyle and desired lash look.

  • To get your brows looking like Vanessa’s, get them threaded. Eyebrow threading is an innovative option for brow shaping and hair removal. It also has many benefits over waxing and plucking and can give you this same sexy arched look.

Dua’s Look:

  • Shades of brown on her lips and eyes
  • Full lashes on the top and bottom

Get Her Look:

  • Brown shades are all the rage this season and you can get this same edgy yet feminine look on your lips with Yves Saint Laurent’s ROUGE PUR COUTURE Lipstick with shade 53 Beige Promenade from Sephora. Continue the brown tones on the eyes by using a bronze shade like MAC’s Charcoal Brown eye shadow.
  • A full lash line on the top AND bottom can be achieved by getting Lash Extensions -and yes, you can even get lash extensions on your lower lid. This will open up your eyes and brighten your face even more than just having lash extensions on the top!
  • For the same bold brow look as Dua, get a simple brow tint. This service is ideal for those who want to darken their brows or simply give them a bolder look. And it also saves you the hassle of filling in your brows – which is a huge time saver! (Note: Lash tinting is available at many Lash Lounge locations, but not in the following states: New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts or California.)
