• A Visit To Amazing Lash Studio in Hoboken {+ Instagram Giveaway}

    Written by:

    Nothing gives us quite the Beyoncé-approved “I woke up like dis” feeling like a fresh set of precisely applied lash falsies. Real talk: lashes cost a hefty penny, so you want to make sure you’re getting the highest quality service so that you don’t get any of those scary infections or your lashes don’t fall out the next day. Hoboken Girl contributor Tamara Kraus recently took a trip to the fairly new eyelash extension spot, Amazing Lash Studio, in uptown to do some hard-hitting research. Spoiler: She loved it, and is dishing out alllll the deets on the very affordable and gorg salon.

    Amazing Lash Studio opened in September last year and is located at 1025 Maxwell Lane {right across from Local Barre uptown} and right by the Hudson River. While Tamara isn’t quite a lash extension virgin {she’s had it done once before}, it’s been a few years since she got extensions, so it was basically like the very first time {+ her previous time, the lashes fell out ASAP}. She was a little skeptical walking in considering what happened before, but was still super excited, and start to finish, everything went flawlessly. The procedure took about two hours for a first time full set, so make sure you’re ready to get zen and even fall asleep! 

    Tamara shares the scoop:

    As soon as I walked in the door, Odi, one of the managers, greeted me with the most infectious smile I’ve ever seen and talked me through the process until I met with my stylist Arlene. Before I went into the room to get started, I cleansed my eyelashes with their special foaming solution to make sure there were no excess oils or dirt on my lashes {this could effect how long the lashes stay on}. Then it was time for the big moment…

    Once Arlene and I chatted about what look I was going for, she made sure I knew what she was doing every step of the way and answered all my questions from what kind of glue she was using to how she selected the lashes.

    Amazing Lash Studio uses their own line of products, so they know exactly what they’re using on you. The best part? They use a special waterproof bonding agent on the lashes, so you don’t have to worry about showering and refraining from the beach. Note: you cannot get your lashes wet for 48 hours after they’re applied, so it’s a good idea to wash your hair right before your appointment.

    Whether it’s your first time or you’ve been going for months, you have four styles to choose from: Natural, Cute, Sexy, and Gorgeous. The stylist made sure she got a grasp of her personality and daily makeup routine so she could understand what kind of lashes she’d want. She chose to do a mix of Natural and Cute since Tamara has a pretty simple daily makeup routine, and Arlene totally nailed the natural, yet totally noticeable look. Basically, this look included filling in longer lashes in the center of the lash line to make her eyes look larger, considering Tamara has a smaller, almond-shaped eyes {didn’t want to go overkill with gorgeous!}.

    The beauty of Amazing Lash Studio {pun intended} is that these four styles are simply guidelines, and your stylist can customize the look based on thickness and length of lashes. Regardless of style though, you typically walk away with 90-120 extensions on each eye {hence, the two-hour initial visit}. And Tamara barely felt a thing during the process — Arlene was so unbelievably gentle that Tamara forgot she was even there sometimes! Considering how expensive typical lash extensions are and how unique and welcoming this experience was, $89.99 for a first time full set is an absolute STEAL.
