Courtney Akai Lash Boutique is the place to go when you want long, natural looking “semi-permanent” lashes. Specializing in eyelash extensions this by-appointment only boutique, is where celebrities and especially brides go to create a bit of ‘eye-drama’. A full set of extensions can lengthen lashes up to 50 percent and thicken them by 30 percent. Courtney is funny, creates a space where you are relaxed as she applies each single synthetic and/or mink eyelash creating a full, lush and natural look. I had them done (just on the corners) and my eyes did pop!
It can take up to two hours (for a full set) but that is because unlike placing a strip on your eye, each is applied one at a time, using a specially formulated, semi=permanent glue that doesn’t irritate the eye or damage your natural lash. Taking care of them is easy and once they are on, you can apply eye make up as usual. The best part, you don’t need mascara and can throw that eye-lash curler away. They will grow out typically six to eight weeks – or as a natural’ eyelash cycle. Mine, which again were just at the corners, lasted for about 5 weeks and really natural looking. So for zero pain and amazing gain: for instant lush and fuller feeling lashes, Courtney Akai is the woman.
