LASH EXTENSIONS VS LASH LIFT

The decision between getting  lash extensions and a lash lift is difficult! That’s why we have come to rescue to help you in making the best decision to suit your lifestyle.

LASH LIFT

A lash lift is a service where 3 creams, and silicone shield are applied to your lashes, allowing a semi permanent curl to your lashes, with 3 options of curliness to choose from! The process takes up to 45 min, and last for up to 8 weeks, we also highly recommend getting our lash tint during the process, painting your lashes black to having your lashes allowing you to not worry about applying mascara.

PROS

  • Low maintenance
  • Natural look
  • You are still able to apply mascara

CONS

  • If you want a glamour look its not for you – try out extensions instead!
  • Won’t give you a voluminous look unless you already have a lot of lashes

LASH EXTENSIONS 

The process of lash extensions takes over an hour, where lashes are added to your natural lashes to create thicker and longer lashes. The lashes can be customised to the look you are after, whether this is thickness, length, dramatic or a natural look . Here at Esstudio we love to create a natural look for our clients, that will still also stand out and create definition .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

PROS

  • Throw away your mascara you wont need it no more
  • Allows for a dramatic look and will have your makeup standing out, or still looking amazing with none on
  • Time saver: eliminating the time spent on doing your makeup

CONS

  • High maintenance
  • Need to have infills every 2-3 weeks to keep them looking fabulous
  • Home maintenance you will need to brush your lashes everyday and be careful of what you use on your lashes.
The eyelash on the right, is a lot fuller as you can see we have  added the extension lashes on top.

Swedish Massage
Swedish oil massage is a relaxation massage involving long, flowing strokes up and down the body. It’s designed to ease tense muscles and calm your mind.

Remedial
When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.

Shiatsu
Shiatsu Massage is a traditional healing art developed in Japan a century ago based on traditional 3000-year-old Chinese medicine. It combines massage, stretching, gentle physical manipulation and pressure along channels called meridians.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is designed to prevent and relieve injuries and conditions that are associated with exercise. It can often be quite strenuous and is meant to relieve and reduce the stress and tension that can build up within the body’s soft tissues while exercising. It can be carried out before, during, or after playing sport or exercising and uses techniques that are designed to increase endurance and performance, to minimize the chances of injury and, if there is an injury, to reduce the recovery time.

Deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles. It is used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.

My current favourite is the caffeine free yogi chai! Delish!

Gernetic was designed to boost the skin’s immunity and ability to regenerate through cellular nutrition. This research forms the basis of all Gernetic products. Gernetic contains amino acids, peptides, proteins, vitamins and trace elements, which have been scientifically formulated to meet the specific nutritional requirements of the cells, leaving the skin healthy and radiant.

Hair Trend alert! Micro foiling is a great option for summer hair, this new take on balayage gives that natural sun-kissed look, creating a softer band line of growth, so you can go further between visits to the salon and spend more time at the beach!

Spring is also a time for new beginnings, so why not a change of colour?? Check out some of our recent press:

No matter your skin tone, there’s a brunette hue out there for you. Aleks Abadia, Co-Founder and Hair Director at Esstudio Galleria explains, “Fair skin will suit slightly warmer tones, while people with a darker complexion will suit ashier tones.” Similarly, your hair type should influence your colour. “Depending on the desired effect, a block colour will be a solid rich tone great for fine hair… and on most people it can bring out your best features: eyes, skin colour. If you have thick hair, a highlighted shade will create dimension and texture,” says Aleks.

“It’s time for hairdressers to rule out the normal request for boring balayage and get a little creative and suggest easy to maintain colours, but allow us to get the mind ticking and get dirty with those colours,” agrees Aleks Abadia of Esstudio Galleria.
