These lash extension spots go the distance.
With setups in Hollywood and Beverly Hills, Dionne Phillips is known for her flirty fringe. Give her two hours and you’ll have a basic-only-better ($250-$375) natural look that lasts six to eight weeks. To get in and out in an hour, go for the Party Flare ($85) — one natural lash gets fully loaded with three individual ones — and go steady about two weeks. Or opt for the Combo ($175), a one (length), two (fullness) punch that takes about 90 minutes and delivers maximum batability. Phillips’s Lash It kit has everything you need to maintain your look between touch-ups.
Tucked in a cozy nook on the second floor of Pasadena’s Colonnade Mall, Integrity is mecca for eyelash worshipers. Treating the practice like a science, owner Tussanee Luebbers glues on extensions lash by lash, according to each eye’s shape. The process takes roughly 90 minutes, and an initial application costs $300. Monthly fills cost $85. Luebbers’s painstakingly applied extensions ensure an authentic effect no matter how long you go, and faux lashes fall off naturally, one by one.
This petite eyelash outpost is a constant fixture in the glossies, thanks to its attending to the lashes of numerous Hollywood starlets. Situated on Melrose Avenue, the Makeup Mandy Eyelash Bar offers a slew of fantastical extensions in addition to straightforward Elizabeth Taylor-esque lashes ($350 and up for a first application and ten-day follow-up), which includes Mink lashes. Not interested in au natural? Try glittery Candy Lashes or colored highlights.
Beba Beauty Day Spa and Boutique
Taking the same approach to extensions as Integrity, Beba is committed to using singular lashes. The West L.A. salon offers two types of extension services — a full set for $200 and an especially full set for $300. The salon’s small lobby, which doubles as a shop for clothing, jewelry, and beauty products, opens to busy Westwood Boulevard, but inside the well-kept treatment rooms the vibe is distinctly tranquil.
This all-white Beverly Hills lash destination stands out with an array of options, whether you’re looking to elongate your blinkers for just a weekend, a week, or a two-month affair. Services start with a 60-lash enhancement ($295). The next step up is 120 lashes ($395). The final frontier is called the Bad Boy (150 lashes for $450) — and it is.
