Eyelash Extensions are FREEDOM
Lash extensions enhance your lashes by adding length, fullness and definition. You’ll look more awake and refreshed than you have in years.
No mascara, no eyelash curlers, no smudging. Sleep proof. Sweat proof. Swim proof lashes. Every. Day.
You wake up everyday with the dark, curled, full lashes of your dreams… drawing attention to your most soulful quality: your eyes.
Our licensed lash artists isolate and place synthetic extensions onto your natural lashes until each one of your natural lashes is kissed by a lash extension. We don’t count lashes here, we just cover each and every one of your beautiful natural lashes.
Every eye is different. Each lash line is customized to give you the shape, style and length that best compliment your features, lifestyle and desires – giving you a look that is as natural or as dramatic as you want when you want it.
Your entire appointment takes place in an luxurious private treatment room. Plush bed, tea, aromatherapy, music of your choice. The opposite of getting a blow out in a loud, open salon. Nap, talk, listen to a book or your favorite playlist.

What are volume lashes and why are they sooo much better than classic eyelash extensions?
Just when we thought lash extensions were amazing enough came the introduction of volume eyelashes. These lashes are so much lighter and fluffier that we are able to handcraft beautiful bouquets of these lashes and apply them more safely and more healthily on your natural eyelashes.
So what’s most exciting about that these volume eyelashes is that four or five of these weigh less than one classic eyelash. What does that mean for you? Fluffier, darker, lusher lash lines that are safer for your natural eyelashes. At Luminous, we believe that volume lashing is so far superior both in look and lash health that we only offer volume lashing to our clients.
as the most highly trained lash artists in the tri-state area, we’ve got answers…
What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash Extension are FREEDOM. Lash extensions are a semi permanent way of enhancing your lashes by adding length and/or fullness. Imagine freedom from worrying about mascara and mascara smudging. Imagine waking up each day, with the dark, curled and full lashes of your dreams.
Each of your natural eyelashes is carefully isolated and a synthetic bouquet of lashes is placed on top of it using a special adhesive bond. That process is repeated over and over again until each one of your lashes is kissed by lash extension.
Lash extensions are known for drawing attention to your most soulful quality… your eyes.
How do I know if lash extensions are for me?
Lash extensions are one of those life changing things that are great for almost everyone. Book a 15 minute complimentary consultation with Erika, our founder and lash expert, and put your worries at ease.
Will lash extensions damage my natural eyelashes?
The answer is no. Properly applied and maintained lash extensions will not ruin your natural lashes.
Proper application means each lash is isolated so it does not interrupt the natural lash cycle once it’s time for that lash to shed.
Proper maintenance means that you must not pull or pick at your lash extensions in order to avoid damage.
You do not need to take breaks from lash extensions if your lash artist is keeping your lashes healthy. Many of our clients have been with us for more than five years and we pride ourselves on keeping our client’s lashes healthy for a long lashy friendship.
Can I get them just once?
Absolutely, weddings vacations and events are perfect times to try lash extensions. Whether you’re the mother of the bride, the bride herself or heading on vacation, lash extension can ensure that you can laugh til you cry, swim and play and never ever have raccoon eyes. I warn you though, if you ever do get lash extensions one time you’ll probably love them and get them forever.
I had lash extensions and didn’t like them…. what's the deal?
I know what you mean. I’ve had lash extensions for about eight years now and in those earlier years I experienced a lot of poking, pulling and itching. Now with the emergence of volume lashes extensions, my lashes are so lightweight that it feels like I have nothing on my eyes. I totally encourage you to try them again, I know you’ll love them.
How do I choose a lash place or artist?
Choosing an lash artist is a lot like choosing a hair stylist. Sure, style is definitely important but it’s best to start with your potential artist’s education. Is your lash artist certified in lash extensions and if so how much further have they gone in their lash education?
Lots of people can take a basic class, but a passionate lash artist takes many classes.
Here at Luminous, each of our artists specialize in lash extensions – they have studied with multiple lash masters/educators from across the world and have been lashing for at least two years. We can confidently say we are the most experienced collective of lash artists in the tri-state area.
What are mink lashes? Do you use mink?
When natural mink lashes became popular a few years ago we were so excited to try them. We quickly learned that natural mink lashes don’t hold their fluff or curl. So, we threw out all our natural mink lashes and replaced them with the finest synthetic mink lashes. Our clients were thrilled with their new synthetic mink lashes and we will never go back to natural mink.
How long does it take to get lashes?
Your first full set appointment will take about 2 hours. You’ll rest on a plush bed in a cozy private room. Whether you sleep the entire time or chat with your artist is up to you but for sure you’ll leave your appointment feeling renewed and relaxed.
How do I maintain my lash extensions?
Most of the time, adding a foaming lash cleanser is usually the only thing you’ll need to do differently. Depending on your lifestyle, your lash artist will go over your aftercare ritual.
Approximately every 3-4 weeks, you’ll need to come in to have your lashes “filled in.” These fill appointments are approximately 75 minutes long and ensures we’re able to lash every single one of your natural lashes for 100% coverage.
What if I'm allergic?
Take a deep breath and reeeeelaxxxxx. We have been lashing for almost a decade and have only seen a handful of true allergic reactions. There are so many conditions that contribute to histamine reactions, we are able to control and eliminate many irritating factors.
Whether you’ve had lashes before or not, a 15 minute complimentary consultation with Erika, our founder and lash expert, can put your worries at ease. Book here.
What can I expect from my appointment?
You can expect to be met by your lash artist who will take all your lifestyle needs into consideration when designing your ideal lash line. You can expect to rest and relax (we have thought of everything you could possibly want or need). You can expect to feel even more beautiful the next time you look in the mirror.
What if I already have lashes? Can I still come to Luminous?
We love transitioning clients from other lash artists. We are thrilled to fill in clean work and healthy lashes. Unfortunately, sometimes lashes are too far gone for us to fill in and are best removed to start fresh. Let us see your lashes. Book a complimentary 15 minute consultation and we will make a plan right then and there.
