salon pro products
costs money. There are levels of quality and to keep costs on a labor intensive beauty service down, it is not uncommon to purchase readily available products from lash fibres, to adhesive and even labor. Lash fibres come in many materials. These include everything from plastic of the lowest quality to higher quality silk, faux mink, real mink and even fox, pony and more. You may notice price changes as you use different materials. LASH LAB standardizes on the highest quality synthetic that looks and feels at minimum like a natural lash, to something even softer and lighter as you move into the naturally hollow, fur fibres which some clients need in order to get extensions at all. Caring for your lashes, means never using an extensions too thick or too heavy. When it comes to adhesive, paying a higher price to ensure adhesive is made according to higher standards of health regulations ie. USA or Canada specifically as it pertans to Formaldehyde use in cosmetic products.
A common misconception is that well known brands are superior. In our industry, privae label is very common meaning it is possible that a branded product is no better than the no name product purchased from the same factory and used in a less qualified salon at a lower cost. The true test for quality is for those most experienced to use them to test them against one another and compare the flexibility, weight, taper at the ends, sheen, feel & the resemblence to what looks and feels most natural. At LASH LAB, we dont private label. We source, test & compare to come up with the best of the best and this is always ongoing as new products and advnacements in technology to produce better materials is what we are always travelling the globe to find and bring to our Master Artists for testing.
we model our process after a medical office. We keep a file on every one of our clients, we track your visits, materials used, lash sizes etc. and we keep you with the same artist and foster a good client/artist relationship as though you are our patient, and we are your lash doctor. We are strict with hygeine and expect our clients to be the same. Our regular clients trust us and as a result return over and over again. If you've had a bad job elsewhere, let us help you with next steps.
Its a tale as old as time... "you get what you pay for."
While lashes are red hot in other parts of the country and worn by many knows celebrities, it is still a relatively new service to hit mainstream in the San Francisco, Bay Area. This service has caught on like wildfire at nail salons, wellness spas & makeup studios where manicures, facials and makeovers remain their bread and butter. Many discount offers and great deals can be found as our industry has become one of the most competitive services almost overnight and often times beauty school students fresh out of school are practicing on you in order to charge so low for a 1.5-2 hour service and still turn a profit... When it comes to your eyes, true value is getting more out of your service - last longer, feel softer, look fuller but more natural and eat weightless. LASH LAb was the first to introduce lash extensions to San Francisco mainstream in 2009. Since then, we remain the oldest, & one of the few lash-only salons in San Francisco, earning us the reputation of being Experts in our field. See our stars on Yelp!
