You’ve probably noticed the long, luscious eyelashes on the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Eva Longoria, but now, one of Hollywood’s biggest secrets isn’t just for actresses and models anymore. The Lashe Spot, Chicago’s only salon dedicated exclusively to eyelashes and eyebrows, provides a variety of treatments including waxing, threading, tinting and its premier offering, Lashe Spot eyelash extensions that are comfortable, long-lasting, and natural-looking.
With locations in Bucktown, Gold Coast and Lincoln Park, The Lashe Spot applies a semi-permanent technique that involves attaching a single synthetic fiber to a natural eyelash using a bonding agent. In simpler terms, one single extension is placed on each individual natural eyelash to add instant length and volume to your lashes.
I’ve had lash extension once in my life and as someone who spends more time wearing yoga pants than one should willingly confess on public forum, I was admittedly afraid that I would wind up looking like a drag queen. That couldn’t have been farther from reality (at least, no one told me otherwise) because most lash extensions today are so natural, no one will be able to tell they’re not yours. In other words, you’ll actually look like you, not like Kim Kardashian. Or worse, Dennis Rodman.
Services at The Lashe Spot are affordable enough to incorporate into your regular beauty routine, but they are also a fun way to up your style ante for a special event, such as a wedding, bachelorette party or an especially hot date. Start with the Feather treatment, the lightest and most natural option, which lasts up to two weeks for $125. Go glam with the $350 Glamour look, which lasts up to six weeks with retouching after three weeks. Lashe Spot also offer smudge-free permanent mascara, eyebrow maintenance and waxing services.
