For the first time ever, I decided to get professional eyelash extensions. I’ve worn lash strips on multiple occasions, but I wanted something that would last a little bit longer. Since I’ve cut my hair, I think the lashes really add a nice feminine touch to my look!
AliciaDion Beauty, LLC is a black-owned beauty and cosmetic service spa. Alicia, the owner, is a licensed esthetician in the Marietta area of Atlanta, Ga. She offers lash extensions, facials, chemical peels, dermaplaning, and wax services. You can go to her site, aliciadion.com for service and booking information.
Although I don’t live in Atlanta, my best friend and I planned to go to a Beyonce (& Jay-Z) concert for the infamous On The Run II Tour. I recently big-chopped ALL my hair off, again, so I wanted some lash extensions to kinda upgrade my look.
I’ve known Alicia for a while- we went to high school together- so when I got the chance to use her services, I was super excited. I follow her on Instagram (@aliciadion_beauty), so I got an exclusive code to save 40% on my first service. I booked my appointment online and waited impatiently for my lash date.
When I got to Alicia’s spa, I was greeted at the door with a friendly hug and an excited smile! The spa is neat and private, decorated with simple elegance. She even provided fresh fruit and infused water as refreshments. For individual lash extensions, Alicia discloses that you should prepare to lay down for about 2.5 hours.
I was super comfortable the whole time, laying on the soft bed while 90’s R&B music played softly in the background. Seriously, I could have taken a whole nap- if I wasn’t so scared I would snore! (LOL!) The whole environment was extremely relaxing.
Ignoring the fact that my stomach growled relentlessly about an hour in, my time went by very quickly. I absolutely LOVE the results! Alicia listened to my wants (fuller, longer lashes) while still attending to my needs (appropriate length for wearing glasses). My lash extensions, in my opinion, look very natural and the application was seamless- no knots or thick clumps of glue are visible. After the application, Alicia gave me tips and products for cleaning and grooming my extensions, including an oil-free wash and brushes.
Three weeks later, my extensions are still intact. I’ve gotten so used to the look, I think I’m addicted! I can’t wait to return to Alicia for more pampering! If you’re in the Atlanta area, check out Alicia’s website at aliciadion.com and follow her Instagram here!
