With the heat of summer underway, there tends to be the worry of how our makeup will look in the humidity. Since JJ Eyelashes launched in 2007, we have been providing alternatives to the “wet” makeup look. If dripping mascara (including some waterproof formulas) and time gives you a little heartburn, then we have the perfect solution for you – JJ’s Eyelash Extensions!

Natural appearance, luscious volume, and noticeable glamour are things that are often looked for when applying the traditional “falsie.” Since many have difficulty applying temporary lashes (often only good for a couple of uses), eyelash extensions are making their way to eyelids near you. Sarcasm? Not exactly, considering the number of eyelash salons in NYC alone. But even with all of the options, JJ makes each visit memorable and relaxing. Unique and custom consultations, relaxing atmosphere, seasoned professionals, and even color options, give each client their own look. But how does this help you during the summer?

The average time it takes to apply just eyeliner and mascara takes about 3 minutes, but some take up to 10 or even 15. Why? There is a little preparation involved, including cleansing, curling, priming, and the application, not to mention the multiple coats of mascara based on the desired look. Since the summer months typically are filled with humidity and just plain ol’ heat, mascara tends to “melt” off, leaving residue under and around the eye. With eyelash extensions, no mascara is needed and all it takes is 60-90 minutes of relaxing relax while lashes are individually applied to the natural lash. If properly cared for, they can last up to six weeks, with a fill every three weeks if needed. You’ll wake up looking flawless and have that #IWokeUpLikeThis look for the next month and a half, sans mascara (which is damaging to natural lashes AND extensions anyway).

If you’re not convinced, then maybe you should consider visiting one of our three (almost four) salons for a look around and a consultation. Unlike the traditional disposable lashes, we customize each lash to your eye and face shape, enhancing and accentuating your features. Don’t hesitate; become part of the JJ Eyelash family today.

We can’t wait to meet you!
