Eyelash Extensions by Muse Artistry
— Lash Studio in the Brunswick & Cleveland area
what is lash artistry?
Lash artistry is just that — artistry. It is a form of creative expression in which an artist meticulously and intentionally applies extension fibers onto individual eyelashes to enhance what is already there. The natural eyelashes are the canvas on which the artist works, and you are her muse; she must take into account your unique features and anatomy, and carefully consider them as she works to create a set that is harmonious with these features, as well as with the result that you are looking to achieve.
Muse provides luxury lash extensions that preserve and maintain natural lash integrity. They eliminate the need for lash curlers, mascara, and strip lashes, allowing you to effortlessly go about your life and be your own muse.
why Muse Artistry?
Versatility and Intention
Melanie, the artist at Muse, holds a deep understanding of lash styling. Gone are the days where extensions of a single length are applied across the entirety of the lash line; using various lengths, curls, diameters, and most importantly, knowing how to use them intentionally is extremely important for any advanced artist to be able to execute a lash set flattering for any given eye. Melanie's skillset and continued education gives her the ability to provide a versatility in styling that is not easy to come by.
Thoughtfulness and Collaboration
Simply put, you will be heard. Too many times, clients come in with horror stories about how a previous artist just didn't listen to what they wanted. At Muse, extra time is taken to ensure that both you and your artist are on the same page before you even lie down — it is all collaborative. Taking into consideration what you are looking for, she will map out your set with your eyes open while you are sitting up, so that you can rest on the lash table assured that the finished result will simultaneously be what you asked for, and complementary to your features.
Healthy Lashing and Retention
During the application process, natural lash health is Melanie's number one priority. This means that clean isolation is used, and that the extensions are carefully applied to each natural lash in a weight that it can comfortably hold. Healthy lashing techniques and intentional application create lash sets that stand the test of time, and remain full even until fill time.
While great retention is mainly on the artist and her application, a small portion of it is attributed to aftercare. For this reason, Melanie makes sure to educate every single client on best practices for aftercare, and even provides a complimentary travel-sized cleanser to each new client so that they can properly care for their lashes at home.
the aphrodite set
This set emulates wet eyelashes or natural lashes with mascara applied. It is created by placing closed fans across the entirety of the lash line, and is customizable in terms of length, shape, and wispiness.
the angel set
The most natural set you can get, the angel set is created using the same technique as the aphrodite set, only the lash extensions used are lighter and thinner. This style provides a light, airy effect to give your everyday look a subtle, yet beautiful enhancement. It is customizable in terms of length, shape, and wispiness.
the athena set
Great for those who enjoy the look of a voluminous strip lash, this set pairs volume or mega volume fans with intentionally placed spikes or closed fans to create a dark, yet wispy effect. It is customizable in terms of density, shape, wispiness, and length.
the artemis set
This style of lash is a beautiful way to lift and elongate the eyes as it utilizes a sharper curl. Very short lengths are placed across most of the lash line; jumping up only at the ends to create a sultry, winged eyeliner effect.
the anime set
Inspired by Japanese popular culture, the anime lash set is a fun, unique style which is meant to give the eyes a "cutesy," doe-eyed effect. Short fans create a dark base, and spikes significantly longer in length are evenly spaced across the lash line.
standard classic lash extensions
Created in a 1:1 ratio (one extension to one natural lash), the classic set is ideal for those interested in a very natural look, or for those who are entirely new to the lash world. Its density is entirely dependent on natural lash count, as classic lashes themselves do not provide fullness.
standard volume lash extensions
The volume set involves the application of super-light, fanned extensions to the natural lash, resulting in dark sweeps of lashes. Three to ten thin eyelash extension fibers are arranged by hand into a fan shape to give the appearance of fuller lashes.
standard mega volume eyelash extensions
The mega volume set provides the fullest look that lash extensions can give. Fans are handmade using extension fibers that are ultra-light in weight and ultra-thin in diameter so that they can be healthily applied to each individual natural lash.
