I am so excited about today's blog post featuring eyelash extensions by Shala Williams, Licensed Aesthetician and Certified Lash Artist, right here in Nashville. When Shala first contacted me about trying them, I was a little hesitant because I have never had professional eyelash extensions before. I absolutely love them!
I have always admired eyelash extensions on other women, but was not sure how they would look on my very fair skin. Another concern I had was my job. I am around attorneys and elected officials all the time and told Shala that I could not roll into court looking like Niki Minaj or Miss Piggy with ginormous jet black, in-your-face falsies. Haha! Shala is so nice and easy to work with (and she is a total hoot). Since this was my first time, we opted for a more natural looking and slightly lighter shade of lashes that would not be so overwhelming with my skin tone and that would be both office and court appropriate. I am officially hooked!
The procedure takes about two hours. I felt totally relaxed while she worked her magic and ended up falling asleep. Oops!! I woke up to a flawless set of lashes, cue Beyonce "I woke up like this..." No, but seriously, Shala did an amazing job- I am very happy with my eyelashes!
My favorite thing about eyelash extensions? Not having to wear mascara!! These eyelash extensions have drastically cut back on the amount of time it takes me to get ready each morning. I still wear eyeshadow if I have an event, but no mascara (or eyeliner for my upper lashes), which is a glorious feeling and a huge time-saver that any busy #girlboss can appreciate. The eyelash extensions last about four weeks, so they are totally worth the investment. Not to mention, they are so easy to take care of- all you have to do is brush them with a lash wand each morning (Shala will give you one) and you are ready to go!
Nashville friends, Shala is running a special right now for Lawyer Lookbook readers for a full set of extensions for $120 (regularly $220). Ladies, take it from me, you will absolutely love eyelash extensions and deserve to pamper yourself!
