Back at the end of July I did something super fun: I got eyelash extensions! I had always wanted them, but never really knew much about the process. Plus I always knew they were $$$. Despite my reservations (How do I keep them nice?! How do I not pick at them?! Will they look wonky?!), I spent a couple of hours with Shala Williams in Nashville. It was a little nerve-racking because I had no idea how they'd turn out until it was all over and done with. Shala asked me if I wanted more of an everyday "natural" look or if I wanted to go full sass. Well, obviously I went full sass! I was IN LOVE the second I saw myself in the mirror! Y'all, those eyelash extensions seriously changed my whole game! I kept saying "Oh my stars, I LOVE THEM!" haha I'm a little heartbroken I didn't go back for fill-ins because I've been missing them something awful.
For a full month I didn't need to even think about mascara. I seriously woke up looking fabulous. It was awesome and I think I might be hooked. If only my bank account could be hooked with me! I can't even look at false eyelash strips the same haha (Not that I was ever good at putting those on anyhow...)
Shala was so easy to talk to. She's so so sweet and so down to earth. Not to mention stunning! I know that's not relevant in any way, but it's true. It took almost 2 hours to get the full set done, but it flew right by. I did manage to have a bit of a coughing fit right in the middle and that was only mildly embarrassing ha! We talked about blogging, her career and our kiddos, so before I knew it I was walking out of her salon looking like a million bucks!
She's trying to build her clientele here in Nashville so if you're local, please give her a shout! You can find her on Instagram and you can book an appointment through her website. Typically a full set of lashes are $220 but if you mention you saw my blog, she'll give you a stellar deal at only $120! You can get fill-ins every 3-4 weeks for $75, too. It's perfect for a wedding, trip, or other fun event. Or heck, just because! Because why not?!
*Sigh* My long, fluffy lashes! You make mascara look ridiculous.
Have you ever tried eyelash extensions?
