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.
