Celebrity Eyelash Extension Pro dishes on what you need to know about lashes

Christine Reed knew the next big thing was lash extensions.
After owning one of the first eyelash salons in Los Angeles "Christine Reed Lash Salons and Spa" she is now applying eyelash extensions among other high end beauty services onsite to the customers home.
"I've always wanted to make my customers happy and showing up to there home and they don't have to drive saves a lot of stress." said Christine Reed. She opened Platinum Image Services in January 2011 and loves giving the absolute best "red carpet" experience.

Women have wanted full lashes since the dawn of time. Mascara and falsies have been the go-to quick fix. Now you call or book online and you will have lusciously long lashes that last for a few weeks at a time. Lash extensions look a little more natural, because a stylist glues individual synthetic lashes onto your real ones, and the whole process can take up to two hours. But it'll certainly make getting ready each morning that much easier.





What's your beauty secret?
Lashes. Seriously, that's all I do. When I got it done the first time, I was like, "Oh my god" because I never liked wearing makeup, or putting anything on my face at all. When you have lashes on, it feels like you're wearing makeup. When I don't have them, I feel like I look sick or depressed or something. I'm so used to seeing myself wearing them.
What beauty trend do you hate?
When people overdo their lips, it looks really weird. Though I don't see it so much here. People are more natural. Some (women) get their lips done all the time, and I'm like, "Your lips look like they're about to explode!" But that's what happens. You get used to (the look), and you want more. It's hard to create a balance. They look too fake.
Let's talk lashes. 
There are lots of looks. Some people really like a natural look, and some people want it to look fake. Sometimes it's really hard to know because people will come in and say they want them to look long. But then they're like, "They are way too long!" Well, you asked for long!
What are the different kinds of extensions?
There are different curls and thicknesses. There are really curly lashes, or more natural-looking. Thick ones, thin ones. It depends on the look you're going for.
What material are these made out of?
Most of them are synthetic, but there is one that is real mink hair. A lot of people say that they have it, but they really don't. They're so expensive to get. And the other thing that's not good is that they're using animals for that. Second, it doesn't keep the curl. When they get wet, they get super straight and spiky and it doesn't look good. I have a mink imitation at the studio, and it keeps the curl.

The two most dangerous Beauty services in the industry today

After having a long talk with my client last night I realized most people don't even know how dangerous eyelash extensions can really be! I noticed a lot of places are offering lashes for $45 after talking to clients that I had lost and looking at their lashes I realized more than a few things that were happening. First off after looking at the glue the lady was using on my client I realized it contained formaldehyde which is one of the most dangerous things to have around your eyes on a daily basis! Secondly the eyes where taped open so the fumes from the glue were constantly going into the eyes. Last but not least as I was trying to pull apart her lashes to do her fill I realize they were all glued together. She was quick to state "it must be I took a shower" but that doesn't need to happen! Many people don't want to pay a lot for their eyelashes so they don't want to believe their lashes are being destroyed most of my clients that I've had for over 10 years have healthier eyelashes. All the people I have seen that have been getting these cheap eyelashes are losing their eyelashes and they are thinning out constantly having your lashes glue together creates a pulling effect. Once A Lash is pulled out 20 times it never grows back. Just like with mascara if you wear mascara constantly everyday your lashes can't grow if your clogging the follicle.
  The second most dangerous service I have seen on the market today is the Brazilian Blowout. It also contains formaldehyde just being near the product causes my eyes to water and tear and most places offer it but do the service outside. How is it safe to be on your hair day after day?Be aware of the products that are being used on your body we only get one life!!

The Best Eyelash Extensions in Los Angeles

I've personally been doing eyelash extensions for almost 16 years I checked that every lash is done properly and no two lashes are connected. When you look on Yelp now it says that everyone does eyelashes the correct way and safely but it is highly impossible there anyone has as much experience as I do. I opened my first Eyelash Salon in 2002 and now there are five eyelash places on the same street. Most of these places use glue that contains formaldehyde and should not even be near the eyes. My glue is made in the USA and is formaldehyde free I buy it every few weeks so it is always fresh. I prefer to make house calls so I can spend time with the client and pick an eyelash set that works for you. If you're looking for a great way to check and see if you have good eyelashes simply take a toothpick and comb through your eyelash extensions if it gets stuck call me immediately.

Nexplanon birth control ruined my Life

After going to the doctor and being told I should try the implant nexplanon for birth control. I thought it would be a great alternative to taking the pill. I didn't notice anything really for the first six to seven months and then I started gaining weight. Then I thought maybe it's just due to the fact that I'm getting older so I still didn't have the implant  taken out. Then after two years of having it in I started noticing I was not feeling like myself. I had gained almost 50 pounds in the last 2 years but still wasn't thinking it was because of the implant. By the third year I had gained even more weight and was feeling depression kicking in. I was going to bed earlier and had no zest for life. I then called my doctor to have it removed and he said it would be $500 to remove when it only cost $50 to put it in I couldn't believe it! Knowing I needed to get it out I still waited. I knew I had at least six more months before It needed to be removed and then one morning I woke up and I couldn't feel my fingertips or my arms I thought I was having a heart attack! I then had to go to the emergency room of course my doctor couldn't get me in and I had to have it removed when I went in I found out I weighed almost 200 pounds I had gained almost 70 pounds. Now the implant has been out for about 3 months and I feel amazing I don't feel depressed and the weight is coming off I have already lost 25 pounds in 6 weeks. I'm not saying that this will happen to everyone but It happened to me.

What to know before getting eyelash extensions

If you haven't already tried lash extensions, you should at least once in your life. Seriously, I speak from experience when I say they are amazing. And with wedding season in full swing, you have the perfect excuse to make the splurge (even if you're only a guest, I say go for it). But before you give them a whirl, I've got some great advice for you. My advice for lash extension newbies: DO your research. "Choose a reputable salon, spa or eyelash extension only establishment. The lash artist should be a licensed esthetician or cosmetologist and the consultation should be free of charge. Ask what type adhesive is used (it should be non-formaldehyde), and if they have a variety of lashes for customizing. Always make sure they are not applying cluster lashes as lash extensions are one single lash applied to each one of your own." DON'T get your extensions wet for 24 to 48 hours after application. "Avoid working out, steam rooms or hot yoga. The adhesive will reactivate and may cause the lashes to stick together and look like caked-on mascara." DO resist the urge to pull. "If you pick, tug, twist or excessively touch or brush your extensions, it could damage your natural lashes. If at any time you don't wish to continue, always have them professionally removed." DON'T let moisture-rich products get onto your lashes. "Shampoo, conditioner, heavy creams or anything oil based will eventually loosen the bond. Tilt your head back when washing your hair or take a bath to avoid getting them wet. Some of my addicted clients use swimming goggles while showering!" DO reshape your extensions after you shower. "Gently comb your lashes to fan them out or use a blow dryer set on "cool" to fan them back in place.  Hold it arms length away from your face." DON'T neglect your own lashes. "Maintain the health of your natural lashes with an eyelash conditioner or growth serum. They help the hairs to stay in the follicle longer resulting in stronger support for the extensions." DO have fun. "Flaunt! Flirt! The best thing about lash extensions is that they are versatile and can be styled differently at every touch up appointment. For example, if you're going to an event, ask your lash artist to glam 'em up!" If your keeping them for years go more natural and don't wear mascara. Now your eyelashes can get healthier from proper eyelash extensions. Last but not least check your eyelashes with a toothpick and comb it through the lashes if it gets stuck your eyelashes are glued together. I'll admit, some of these tips sound a bit high-maintenance, but if you're going to spend $200 bucks or more on your service, you want to make sure it lasts. Are any of you thinking of getting lash extensions? Or have you already been there, done that? Details, please.
