This a review of a Lash Curl service at Browhaus in Soho. Browhaus NYC offers a lash curl service that I got to try last Saturday, the Lash Curl Up (see my before and after photos). Back in Singapore I used to be a regular client of Browhaus for my brow and lip threading. One of the things I loved was their high level of salon service. True to form, my lash curl at Browhaus NYC did not let me down! The service itself took about 45 min and while it is getting done, you drift off as your eyes are closed for that length of time. Your lashes are literally curled from the root up and a solution is placed while your eyes are shut. This procedure does not hurt, sting or tug in any way. Lash expert Santi explained the entire procedure step by step and gave me great tips on aftercare, he really knew his stuff. Essentially, Santi advised no water for about two days on the curled lashes and avoid using mascara because of the wax. Once the two-day wait period is over makeup can be used and the lashes can get wet again. Other tips are to refrain from tugging or pulling on lashes. This lash curling treatment can last up to two months.
My thoughts on this – if you are blessed with long lashes and wear a lot of mascara, this treatment will definitely add extra OOMPH factor, your eyes will pop! For brides and a special events, this is also a fabulous idea just plan ahead and make sure this isn’t a last minute thing. If you don’t want to wear mascara everyday, this will cut your getting ready time considerably, I haven’t had the need for mascara since getting my lashes curled, they look pretty spectacular.
