My lash extension curiosity piqued about a year and a half ago when I first arrived in Houston, TX. Coming from the northeast, I was used to seeing nail salons in every strip mall, but in Houston, nail salons were replaced with lash studios everywhere you could swipe a credit card. Initially, I was really confused and assumed that all women in Houston must be rocking Everything’s-Bigger-In-Texas lashes, but I soon discovered that the lash extension market was booming here due to the extreme heat and humidity – which makes 99% of mascaras useless and lash extensions the best solution to look fresh-faced and pulled together in this climate. Let’s get into my lash extensions experience – pros and cons, and would I do it again?
