I want this service done for my lashes. I have very short and extremely curly eyelashes so glue on lashes for me is not an option. Do you guys think there is lash service in New Orleans?

I would be surprised if there weren't any eyelash services in NO.  Most larger cities have several to choose from.  It has become extremely popular.  You might check the Web for listings in your area.

Good luck.

While I adore the look, I have literally been discouraged from getting them by salon professionals who thought they were just astronomically expensive for such a short lasting effect.  So as of yet, I haven't pursued them.  My long hair which lasts for years, enhancing and investing in it I am totally willing to do.

Still considering..... :-)

Thank you for chiming in.  That was essentially what the ladies were telling me.  Now the gal is NO with the super curly and short lashes, I would totally understand you have like no false eyelash alternatives.  But I can wear those and have a few which looks glam lovely.

I do my own and like many others, will not go without them now. Before I did my own, I practiced on my 15 year old daughter who has very curly lashes. She loved them and they looked very "age appropriate"!! The lashes are only a few dollars as well as the adhesive and they last well (even with allergy eyes that I rub). I have not removed them all, rather I just add more as they thin out.
 
We just posted another article about DIY lash extensions that you might find helpful. Good luck!!

I stopped wearing eyelash extensions and started using Latisse. My eyelashes look great now!

eyelash extensions lashes are very popular these days.   Ultimately it's important to do whatever works best for you.

Here is some application tips:

Most of us have probably already heard of lash extensions but how do you apply them?

To apply your own lash extensions, you will only need a few things:

1. individual lash extensions (short, medium or long)
2. individual lash adhesive (clear or black)
3. good tweezers
4. Large safety pin

Take the lash adhesive and place a drop on a small piece of foil. Using the tweezers, remove each lash from its container, dip the tip into the adhesive and apply the tip to the base of your lashes, starting on the outer part of your eye (be sure to look closely into the mirror to ensure you are adhering the lash to the correct area). Hold the lash with the tweezers to allow the glue to set. Use the safety pin to correctly position and separate the lashes  before the glue completely sets.

If you notice that you are losing lashes, you might consider dipping more than just the tip into the adhesive or even touching the lash directly to the adhesive tip to be sure it is completely coated. Instead of waiting for all the lashes to fall out, just replace individual lashes as needed and they will last and last without a completely new install.

You might also notice that one side looks absolutely beautiful while the other side looks different. This is either because you used your other hand or because you tried using the same hand, so that eyes lashes are not facing the right direction. As much as possible, you will need to try to use your other hand: left hand does left eye and right hand does right eye. After a few times of practicing, both eyes will look like they were professionally installed, all for about ten bucks!!
