I’ve never been much of a makeup person, but since I’ve become a regular at Rumors Salon & Spa, I like to try new things (as I’m sure you’ve noticed – that spray tanning experience for instance). While I was waiting for my normal blow out reservation, I noticed on an advertisement for eyelash extensions on the waiting area television. I thought to myself, “Self, you should go for it! Try something new and exciting & see what happens!” When I checked out of my appointment, I made a reservation to get eyelash extensions and the rest was history (as they say).
Before my appointment (about a week before) I received an email from Rumors with a few guidelines and preparations that I needed to follow before, and after, my appointment so everything would run smoothly. My biggest concern was about the length of the appointment – about two hours! Not wearing any mascara a few days before or any makeup the day of was no issue for me (I mean I was getting fancy eyelashes, how could I complain about no makeup for a few days?!) I was escorted to the Relax Spa and waited for my esthetician, Chloe, to walk me back to the room. We went over a few details, I signed a few documents (nothing scary) and I was ready for the eyelash extensions to begin!
Chloe told me that this experience won’t hurt at all and that I would most likely fall asleep. Boy was she right! Oh, those comfortable, warm spa beds! She started by putting pads on my eyes; this was the most uncomfortable part, just because they were wet and cold, but once they were on your face, you didn’t even know they were there. We chatted for a bit and the next thing I knew, I was waking up to Chloe letting me know that we were all done! The first thing that came to mind when I woke up was, “I hope I wasn’t snoring” (how embarrassing would that be)!
After I was fully awake (whoopsies!) we went over the extensions after-care and I choose to get them refilled every two weeks. When I looked at myself in the mirror (WOW!) I wasn’t sure what my husband would think. Needless to say he loved them and I’ll be keeping them! I know that I’m not entirely a makeup/beauty kind of person, but I don’t know how I was going through life with only your standard mascara! Eyelash extensions are the way to go, ladies, and the only place to get them is Rumors.
