With the holiday season in full swing, time is precious and winter weddings, seasonal parties and social gatherings are approaching full steam ahead. While prepping and primping is always a prerequisite, thankfully the OKC metro area is chock-full of beauticians, salons and beauty boutiques to help save some time with services that give both instant gratification and long-lasting results. From fuller lips to brighter eyes with longer lashes, we’ve selected a few of our favorites here to share with you a little more about what you can do to both look and feel your best this holiday season and through the new year to come! Read on for three must-have beauty services to round out your 2017.
Rather than deal with reapplying multiple coats of often flaking or lackluster mascaras, The Lash Lab offers a one-stop solution for flirty lashes that’ll bring you to wedding and event-ready in just one application appointment. Clients have the option to customize their lash look from a dramatic, thicker fill to a naturally curled look, with up to 120 lashes per eye in a full set. Being an Xtreme Lashes® certified salon, The Lash Lab‘s application procedures ensure not only the best look for individual’s eye and face shapes, but also providing the utmost care in protecting and preserving natural lashes. While most extensions fall out within the cycle of natural lash loss, extensions help eliminate extra stress factors by ensuring less exposure to curlers and drying mascaras which cause lash damage and breakage at an increased rate. The salon also suggests clients discontinue use of waterproof mascara at least 72 hours within their appointment time (and in general) to avoid any additional causes of breakage. Look out for special deals through the holiday season to snag a new lash look for yourself or to gift to a friend and call 405.657.7219 for your appointment!
