Summer vacations are the ultimate time to relax, discover new places, and snap those unforgettable moments. But let’s be real—keeping up with a full beauty routine while you’re out having fun can be a bit of a hassle. No worries, though! We've got the perfect guide to help you stay effortlessly fabulous and carefree all vacation long. From brow laminations to lash lifts and extensions, these treatments offer convenience, save time, and ensure you’re always camera-ready.

Brow Lamination: Tamed, Defined Brows All Summer Long

Brow lamination is a game-changing treatment that transforms your natural brows into fuller, more defined arches, for a polished look that lasts weeks! Here’s how it works:

  1. Preparation with Lifting Lotion: The process begins with the application of a lifting lotion to your brows. This gentle formula softens the hair bonds, making them flexible and easy to reshape.
  2. Shaping to Perfection: Your esthetician then uses a fine brush or spoolie to comb your brow hairs upward and into your desired shape. During this process, each hair is positioned to create a balanced, natural, and symmetrical look.
  3. Setting the Shape: Once your brows are perfectly shaped, a setting lotion is applied to lock them in place. This lotion re-bonds the hair structure and secures the brows in their flattering new shape.
  4. Nourishment and Conditioning: After the setting lotion is removed, a nourishing serum is applied to condition and strengthen your brows. This serum helps to maintain the health of your brow hairs, adding shine and resilience.
  5. Optional Tint: For a more defined, fuller-looking brows we recommend combining your brow lamination with a tint service. A tint provides a semi-permanent color boost to your brows, filling in any sparse areas and creating a uniform shade.

Benefits of a brow lamination:

  • Convenience: No need for daily brow grooming or makeup. Your brows stay perfectly shaped for up to 6-8 weeks.
  • Time-Saving: Skip the hassle of brow pencils and gels. Wake up with naturally beautiful brows every day.
  • Vacation-Ready Looks: Laminated brows frame your face beautifully, ensuring you look polished and put-together in all your vacation photos. Plus, they're water-proof so you can enjoy the pool and the ocean!

Lash Lift and Tint: Effortless Lashes for Sun-Soaked Days

A lash lift curls your natural lashes from base to tip, so they look longer and more lifted. Tinting adds a deeper color, enhancing the lashes’ appearance without the need for mascara. This combo treatment is perfect for achieving beautiful, eye-catching lashes with minimal effort. Here’s how it works:

  1. Preparation with Lifting Lotion: A lifting lotion (also known as a perming solution) is applied to the base of your lashes. This solution softens the disulfide bonds in the lash hair, allowing them to be reshaped. It’s typically left on for about 10-15 minutes, depending on your natural lash thickness and the desired lift.
  2. Setting the Curl: After the lifting lotion is removed, a setting solution is applied to re-bond the lashes in their new, lifted shape. This solution is also left on for about 10-15 minutes, securing the curl in place.
  3. Choosing Your Color: Your esthetician will select a tint color that enhances your natural lashes and complements your skin tone. Popular choices range from deep black to rich brown, depending on the desired intensity and natural lash color.
  4. Applying the Tint: The tinting process involves carefully applying a semi-permanent dye to your lashes. The technician will ensure that the tint coats each lash from base to tip, saturating the entire lash to provide an even color boost.
  5. Final Results: Once the processing time is complete, the tint is gently wiped away, revealing darker, more defined lashes. This step enhances the appearance of your lashes, making them look fuller and more dramatic without the need for mascara. 

Benefits of a Lash Lift and Tint:

  • Convenience: Enjoy mascara-free mornings. Your lashes will stay curled and tinted for 6-8 weeks, even through beach days and pool dips.
  • Time-Saving: Cut down your makeup routine by eliminating the need for eyelash curlers and mascara.
  • Stunning in Photos: Lifted, tinted lashes make your eyes pop in photos, giving you a wide-eyed, fresh look perfect for capturing summer memories.

Lash Extensions: Create Your Perfect Look with Customizable Length and Volume

Lash extensions are semi-permanent lashes glued individually to your natural lashes, giving you instantly fuller, longer, and more dramatic-looking lashes. Lash extensions come in various lengths, thicknesses, and curl patterns, allowing for a range of looks to suit your preferences and natural lashes. Here’s how the process works:

  1. Consultation: Your lash artist will start with a consultation to discuss your goals and preferences. This helps determine the best type of extensions to match your natural lashes and the look you want to achieve.
  2. Preparation: Your natural lashes are cleansed to remove any oils or residues.
  3. Application: Using tweezers, your lash artist carefully isolates your natural lashes to attach your chosen lash extensions with medical-grade adhesive. This process is repeated until the desired fullness and style are achieved.
  4. Drying: Once all extensions are applied, they are left to dry for a few minutes. Your technician may use a gentle airflow to speed up the drying process.
  5. Finishing Touches: The extensions are brushed and adjusted to ensure your desired look. Your lash technician will also advise you on the best way to take care of your new lashes, including scheduling a 2-3 week lash fill.

Benefits of Lash Extensions:

  • Convenience: Enjoy lush, full lashes without the need for mascara or strip lashes. Lash extensions last 4-6 weeks, making them ideal for longer vacations—like that bucket list trip to Europe!
  • Save Time: Spend less time in front of the mirror and more time enjoying your vacation.  With lash extensions, you can skip eyeliner and mascara and wake up with gorgeously full lashes every day.
  • Gorgeous in Every Shot: With lash extensions, you’ll always have those perfect, fluttery lashes, ensuring your eyes stand out in every vacation selfie.
