Luscious lashes have been in fashion for decades, but a new boutique in Chanhassen might have you trading in the mascara tube for lash extensions. Amazing Lash Studio opened its Chanhassen location in April with a variety of products for every lash preference.
“We take a synthetic, longer eyelash and pharmaceutical grade glue and glue it to your existing eyelash about a millimeter from your lash line,” explains the Chanhassen location’s owner Elizabeth Holte. She says extensions are applied with eyes closed by a trained cosmetologist or esthetician, adding that many clients even fall asleep during the process.
The Studio offers four different lash styles for a variety of looks. The ‘Natural’ style mimics one’s own lashes, while Holte recommends ‘Cute’ to make deep-set eyes pop. For more dramatic looks, opt for the ‘Sexy’ cat-eye style or ‘Gorgeous’ for an all-out lash makeover. Colored extensions are also available for a subtle, festive touch for holidays or other celebrations.
Introductory extensions start at $79.99, Holte says. Due to the natural hair cycle, lash extensions do require maintenance to be replaced; the studio offers a maintenance membership, with monthly refills at $49.99. The franchise also offers related products, including cleansers, mascara and eyeliners.
