It's about time that I write about some of the best places in Houston. I'm a native Houstonian, born-and-bred, and it's safe to say that I've at least scratched the surface of the best places to do anything in this great city.
One of the scariest things you can do while searching for a good place to get lash extensions, is to put your eyes in the wrong hands. Trust me, from personal experience, I had to have my lashes rehabilitated for 6 months after a so-called lash "stylist" nearly ruined my own set of paltry lashes--and I need all the ones I've got. (in case you're wondering, that place was Lashes By Ann.)
Which is why I'm compelled to tell you about Winx Lash & Makeup Studio. (No, this is not sponsored.)
Trishia is the owner and operator of Winx Lash & Makeup Studio, the first of its kind in Houston. And the new space located on I-610 on the opposite side of Richmond is a place where girly dreams are made of. Trishia was named "Lashista of the Year" by the premier brand of eyelash extensions, Xtreme Lash, and her work and studio has been featured in multiple publications including Vogue Magazine.
Trishia, Sonya, and Jodie are complete delights. An hour under their hands and on their comfy, private roomed memory foam beds is like an hour of cathartic girl-talk.
All the while, your lashes feel as they are being tickled ever-so-gently as these master lash stylists coax super-fine lashes onto each of your natural lashes.
What's important for you to know: Winx Lash & Makeup Studio does your lashes by the book. No excess glue, no clumping multiple (heavy) extensions onto one lash causing (gasp) breakage. They're on top of the lastest in lash trends including Russian Volume, and can dye your natural lashes to blend in with extensions if that's also your thing.
Pricing is reflective of the quality and attention to detail, hygiene, and--ahem--your eyesight, that you deserve. It may seem expensive compared to the "$79 full set chop shops" that may or may not destroy your natural lashes, but what you may not realize is that your follow-up lash fill is included in the initial price you've already paid.
Winx Lash & Makeup Studio is located at 3005 West Loop South, Unit 242, Houston Texas 77027. They are located on the second floor of the shopping center, just walk up the stairs or take the elevator, and turn left.
