An ornate boudoir-inspired space on Sydney’s bustling Oxford Street in Paddington Love Those Lashes, is known for providing consistently excellent lash extensions to many of Sydney’s A-list and beauty editors.
We booked in for a full set of lash extensions and found the experience profoundly relaxing. On arrival we were offered a cup of herbal tea before being shown through to the cushy beds, which feature delicious faux fur blankets.
The team of nimble-fingered lash technicians are experts at analysing your eye shape and giving you the most natural yet flattering set of lashes for your face. Many of the girls were trained in Korea – the home of lash extensions, and their dedication to the art is impressive.
You can also opt for a lash tint (a good idea if your lashes are naturally light – this will minimise the difference between your own lash and the extension) or brow shape to start, and while the lashes are being applied a gel eye mask is applied to refresh the eye area and leave you looking wide awake and refreshed as you step out of the salon.
Love Those Lashes offer silk, acrylic and mink extensions and a full set takes around an hour. Love Those Lashes also provide a fantastic range of home care products including mascara that is safe to use with the lashes, makeup removers and lash extenders.
On top of lashes they also offer brow shaping, spray tans, manicures, facials, making Love Those Lashes a complete one-stop beauty shop.
