Lovely lady who made me feel relaxed and actually listened to what I hoped to achieve from the lash extensions and she asked many questions to make sure that she understood the look I was after.
She also talked me through the various lash options and explained the various looks that can be achieved using different techniques. My lashes turned out amazing and feel really natural, (and a week on, they still look really full) you certainly know they’ve bonded well. The venue is really easy to find and i will certainly be returning. Overall, my experience was a truly positive one, however, being someone who’s been having lash extensions for many years and have tried a variety of different styles, applied by various lash artists, and in comparison to my previous experiences I will highlight a few minor things that could’ve made me award this experience 5 stars instead of 4.
1.) This is possibly the longest time it’s ever taken for me to have a full set of lash extensions applied, it took over 3 hours so I was relieved that I loved the end result after being in for all that time. Definitely not a treatment that you could have done in your lunch break though.
2.) Some lash technicians are so gentle that you could easily fall asleep as you hardly even feel them touching you, but you will definitely know what’s going on here as throughout the process, there was a lot of pushing down on my forehead and what felt like, pulling of my eyelids.
3.) You can feel the glue being applied which caused my eyes to water, however I don’t mind this bit at all because at least you know that the lashes are going to bond well and last until your infill appointment.
In conclusion; the negative points I’ve mentioned above are not things that would put me off booking here again and they’re a small sacrifice for getting the great Lashes that I walked out with.
Overall, I got amazing lashes which have lasted well and this is what I paid for so I would definitely highly recommend this salon.
Elisa has a real eye for detail and her nail art is ON POINT! The whole experience of getting nails done feels like a luxury every time and each visit she makes you feel special and nails look gorgeous. The best bit has been that when I sadly broke my nail, she has been able to use the gel extensions to create a seamless natural finish, it's like no-one would ever know I broke my nail! Book your appointments with Elisa...I would go to no-one else in Edinburgh as she offers a good price and excellent service.
