If you read my blog, you may remember me mentioning my weird eye lashes; they're straight from the inner corner of my eye to about two-thirds over and then curl upward in the outer corner, to the point where they often get in the way of doing winged eyeliner. I use my Shu Uemura eyelash curler and a good black mascara almost every day to try and balance out the difference and even then, they still look a little strange. Of course, my lashes do their evolutionary job of keeping stuff out of my eyes, but they're nothing to write home about and are often my most frustrating feature.
So when my friend and hair stylist, Kat Bishop, contacted me a couple of weeks ago to see if I would be interested in being a lash model for Kristyn Harboldt, one of the estheticians where she works, I jumped at the chance. My curiosity about lash extensions had been piqued a year or so ago after Kat told me about her positive experience with them. I also like to take advantage of opportunities where I can experience and educate myself on services my clients might be interested in or have questions about.
Kat and Kristyn work for Beauty Brands, a salon and beauty retail store located at Crocker Park in Westlake, which is on the west side of Cleveland. The company is still relatively new in the Cleveland area; the Crocker Park location opened in December 2015. Along with salon and spa services, Beauty Brands carries a wide range of cosmetic, skin care, and hair care brands, including some of my favorites - Anastasia Beverly Hills, tarte, Too Faced, Smashbox, 100% Pure, Philosophy, and Pureology to name just a few. I recommend checking it out as another beauty store option and for salon and spa services, too.Read More
