I finally tried my first set of natural, classic looking lash extensions courtesy of Linda at GTA Lash Dolls and am officially hooked! The procedure took about 2-3 hours and I honestly thought I wouldn’t last (I am very fidgety!), but I did! The outcome was so worth it! I walked out with beautiful, natural looking lashes. I swear I couldn’t see where my lashes ended and where the extensions began. Linda was that good.
My first concern before going in was the state of my natural eyelashes after getting the extensions. Would they be shorter after the extensions are removed? Linda was so sweet and assured me that she would provide me with a safe weight that my natural lashes could hold. For the procedure she applied the extensions directly onto each individual eyelash, not touching the eyelids, so they could still breathe and offered me a look that wouldn’t look too overbearing. I loved mine! I chose the classic look in C curl if you were looking to get something similar.
For any of you that have always wanted to try this, but aren’t sure about the procedure etc. I had some questions answered for you from Linda via GTA Lash Dolls below:
How did GTA Lash dolls start?
Linda: It all started because I was a lash addict myself. I’ve had them done for many years and loved the outcome and how it made me feel. Plus I’m a very lazy person when it comes to make-up so if I can cheat everyday and save time getting ready. I can high five myself.
What kind of lashes do you offer?
Linda: Lashes are Between 0.07 to .20mm widths. Lengths between 8mm-14mm. Anything more that that can be and most likely be to damaging to natural lashes.
How long do they last and what kind of lashes do you use?
Linda: Mink. Lashes can last 2-3 weeks depending on how well you take care of them!
Are there any side effects with getting eyelash extensions?
Linda: I apply them in a way that your natural eyelash will still breathe. The only issue would be during the process of the client does not shut her eyes completely fumes will enter and can cause redness. Insert some Visine and the issue should be gone in no more than 2 days.
Types/ style of lashes you offer:
Linda: Classic Doll is 1:1 eyelash application. My Volume is a mixture of 2- 4D depending on the strength of each eyelash. All styling is custom, each client has an individual lash goal and we work together to determine what is best suitable.
