A new lash-extension-only salon
Remember the first time you tried a blowout bar--that magical, uplifting feeling of someone simply washing and styling your hair? Well, that now applies to eyelash extensions.
The Lash Loft is a boutique salon that specializes in that very thing. And no, it’s not just for drag queens. The new spot has all the trappings of a high-end spa (beautifully designed, clean and comfortable) but with more of a quick, blowout-bar feel (a row of spa beds and all the Adele a playlist could ask for).
Basically, you stretch out, close your eyes and a trained esthetician adheres the extensions to your existing lashes (all very natural-looking, painless and starting at $75).
Sure, this treatment is already being offered around the city, but do you really feel like taking the risk on a quasi-sketchy place with halfway decent Yelp reviews but (gulp) no photos?
We wish we would have known years ago how amazing we could look after basically an hour-long nap.
