Novalash Eyelash Extensions

What are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash Extensions are the all the rage in the beauty industry!  It’s the fastest growing beauty trend in the U.S. since 2010

Who wouldn’t want to wake up with gorgeous lashes every morning without blinking an eye?! (lol! no pun intended!) The extensions are virtually undetectable and most people forget they even have them on… you can’t feel them. The reason you can’t feel them is because each ‘artificial’ lash is bonded to an individual natural lash using only the safest lash adhesive on the market. You can go as natural or as dramatic as you wish with your lash extensions.

The NovaLash Company is best known for their Physician formulated Plantinum Bond Adhesive. Though NovaLash Extensions are extremely safe, as with any other beauty service you should find a Licensed Beauty Professional that is a Certified Novalash Extensionist. (ask for credentials) This will make certain you’re having it done correctly and that the artist will be taking every precaution required to ensure your safety. Here’s a pic of my latest work.

Bridal Photo Shoot Fun!

I’d like to share with you my favorite image from a bridal photo shoot I recently worked on.  The location of the shoot was at Elizabeth’s Bridal Manor in Northville , Mi. The model is Cassie Keller and the photography was done by Jennifer Alder. Brandi Taylor did makeup and I styled the hair.  I can’t forget to mention my two lovely assistants Eva Qafa and Kristiana Rasi. (thanks girls!)

The Bridal “Manor” was actually an old  blue and pink Victorian home in downtown Northville  that was transformed into a beautiful, quant bridal boutique. Lots of soft pastel floral decor and a very dreamy “pink room” on the second floor.  One of the best parts of the shoot  besides working with a dream team, was that the owner Elizabeth was kind enough to pretty much give us free reign of the boutique… meaning we could choose any gown, and any accessory we desired. We had a field day!

I think it’s safe to say this lovely pink ruffled bridal gown was our overall fav!
