No Mess, No Fuss: Beautiful Lashes with No Effort

By Elisha Neubauer

For women who find applying mascara the bane of their existence, or for those who find they've smeared theirs halfway through the day by rubbing their eyes without realizing it- there's hope. In today's day and age, there is an easier way to get full, thick lashes without the use of heavy, clumping makeup products.

This is where businesses like Glimpse LASH of Madison, Wisconsin come into play. Glimpse LASH offers women the chance to skip the mascara tubes and still have an eye-worthy look. How? By providing semi-permanent eyelash extensions. These no-muss, no-fuss lashes are designed specifically to enhance your natural beauty, adding to what mother nature already planted on your beautiful, womanly eyelids.

"For women that have thin lashes and want more definition lash extensions are great," Owner Angela Mikkelson exclaims. "Also, there is no need for mascara and this saves time and avoids the mess mascara can make at times." Mikkelson states that they have women of all ages coming to their shop to join the lash extension trend. Lash extensions are great for women of any activity level, too. Regardless of whether you're extremely active in sports or exercise, lash extensions are a clean, easy, no mess alternative to constant mascara applications.

Mikkelson founded Glimpse LASH out of what she believed was a necessity. "While living in the West I was introduced to eyelash extensions about 8 years ago and when I returned to Madison to live I found the quality of eyelash extension salons and quality of the application of extensions lacking," she detailed. She quickly realized this was an opportunity and got together with her now-business partner to remedy the situation. "We opened in Greenway Station in July," she says.

Glimpse LASH prides itself on one major aspect of their business. Aside from offering a beautiful lash studio for the Madison community, Glimpse LASH is most proud of its cleanliness. "Our lash stylists have all been fully trained and certified in the lash extension process and sanitation," Mikkelson states. In addition to being exceptionally clean, a large draw for customers is the atmosphere. "The bonus here is we offer complete relaxation while your lashes are being filled," she says. Clients clearly love the studio's super comfortable reclining leather chairs and warm fuzzy blanket. It's such a relaxing environment that most clients even take what Mikkelson refers to as a 'Lash Nap' while their lashes are being filled.

These synthetic extensions are added to every single one of your own eyelashes one by one. The treatment can take anywhere from 120-150 minutes but is exceptionally relaxing. Because eyelash extensions are attached to your natural lashes, they do need to be replaced as your eyelashes cycle, which is approximately between six to eight weeks, although the time frame can be different for each guest.
