Amazing attention to detail! – The idea of letting someone glue individual lashes to each of your natural lashes is admittedly pretty scary. And having to close your eyes for as long as it takes can be uncomfortable at first. But even for people who are babies about these things like I am, Courtney's upbeat and super friendly attitude is always reassuring. Time just flies right by, and before you know it, you're out the door with incredible lashes that you couldn't even dream of getting with the most expensive mascaras at Barney's. Highly recommended. I have not and will not go anywhere else.
I WOULDN'T TRUST ANYONE ELSE W/ MY LASHES!!! – I have been going to Courtney for over 2 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my eyes and lashes. She is not only the most talented beauty professional I have ever met but she is kind, thoughtful and always make sure you are comfortable. She doesn't treat you like a customer, she treats you like a friend. I am still amazed every time I get my lashes done how beautiful she makes me look and feel. Even though I live in NJ, she always accomodates me to her busy schedule. It's totally worth the drive, I wouldn't go anywhere else. Your eyes are your most valuable feature and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my eyes but Courtney. Her salon has such a beautiful and welcoming atmosphere. She makes you feel right at home.
Thanks for being such a great person Courtney and for always making me feel beautiful and fabulous, not only by your impeccable talent but also by your friendship.
Lots of Love,
BEYOND WONDERFUL!!! – As a bride,on my special day, Courtney and staff went beyond my expectations.
She made me look and feel beautiful. I received her make up service along with lashes (which are now my guilty beauty pleasure and secret!!).
For a person who usually wears little make up daily, Courtney and staff enhanced my natural look without over doing it.
I glady recommend her salon to all my friends.
Thank you again for making this bride so happy!!!!
DONT WASTE TIME WITH ANYONE ELSE, SHE IS THE BEST – The easiest way to upgrade your appearance is by having full, lush lashes. Done right, this investment is worth every penny and minute b/c 1) you save time trying to create this look through lash curlers, fortifiers, and mascara, 2) you will never try one of those aggravating false lash sets again (those cheap things w glue are AWFUL) , and 3) even without makeup, just as you roll out of bed, you look wide eyed & younger.
I have tried other places (that even cost more) to learn that Courtney is just much better at this than the rest - she applies the right amount of lashes, with the right glue for you (yes, there are different ones), and the right variation of sizes. If you go to someone without her skill level, you might end up looking like u just attached a $3 set from duane reade.
She is very professional, you will love the results, and you will want to keep going back. People will ask, " wow , you look different. what is it? did you do a peel? new makeup?" it's funny, no one cud figure out what it was exactly, but the day after i got them people at work and my friends were complimenting me left and right.
Splendor – After seeing Courtney on TLC's 10 Years Younger a few years ago, I knew I had to make an appointment. Something so simple as your eyelashes, can make you feel like a million bucks. Or should I say having someone like Courtney working on your eyelashes can make you feel like a million bucks. I've never felt more comfortable with the deciosion I made to spend the money and time on just me. Courtney and the whole salon atmosphere really put you at ease. Though I live in NJ, there will never be a reason good enough not to go for my touch up appointments because I've never felt so beautiful.
My favorite splurge – I've always had sparsh lashes, and no matter how "smudge proof" a mascara claimed to be, I was always wearing it under my eyes by 11 am. I love, love, love having eyelash extensions- its worth every penny to wake up in the morning with thick, dark, long lashes that look completely natural. Courtney is wonderful and her salon is adorable. I thoroughly enjoy the whole process, not just the result!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE COURTNEY AKAI ! – I am so happy i found Courtney! She is hands down the best at what she does. I was looking for a little something to glam up my looks and I got exactly what I was looking for. You can't even tell I have the lash extensions even under a microscope. It just looks like I have long , full natural lashes. Often I even skip my makeup in the morning and still look wide eyed and fresh. I have very sensitive eyes and I have been wearing these extensions, with touch ups every month or so, for almost a full year with no problems. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. You will not be disappointed and she is a joy to be around!
