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.
