Meena inaugurates The Lash, South India's first exclusive Lash destination
Kollywood star Meena launched The Lash, South India's first exclusive Lash studio by Renuka Praveen. The launch event was a glitzy affair which was attended by many celebrities, fashionistas socialites and lifestyle bloggers from the city.
All of us love long, fluttery, fuller lashes. Don't we? Eyelash extensions, a trend that has sprung up over the past few years, has taken care of that for us! They can make your eyes pop when you're wearing a smokey-eye or can cut down on mirror time. The Lash, by Renuka Praveen, is dedicated to offering clients the latest in eyelash extensions and lash lifts.
So what are eyelash extensions? These are individual lash extension treatments that give you the appearance of fuller, thicker, voluminous lashes. If you are looking for fuller lashes all day long, then lash extensions are the ones.
Unlike gluing a strip of temporary, fake lashes onto your lash line, semi-permanent lashes are applied by a technician who hand-glues the extensions on top of your natural lashes, They are light enough not to weigh your own lashes down. The effect is magical; imagine fluttery dramatic lashes without messy mascara.
Each set of eyelash extensions is unique and customized based on the condition of your natural lashes.
The Lash also offers 2D, 3D, and 4D Lash extensions. Our premade fans will give your clients luxuriously full, feathery-soft, fluffy, and glamorous, but natural looking voluminous sets of eyelashes!
2D, 3D, 4D Lashes is a modified eyelash design for Volume Lashes (also called pre-made volume fans). One lash consists of two (2) three (3) or four (4) and extremely lightweight pre-fanned lashes carefully applied to every single lash.
What are Lash Lifts? Lash lift works on your natural lashes at the root by lifting and curling them. We can tint your lashes if needed! This gives you the appearance of longer, thicker lashes and a layer of mascara will amplify the oomph factor. The procedure takes anywhere between 45 minutes - 60 minutes and lasts for 4 weeks.
The Lash is founded by Renuka Praveen, a certified lash artist from the UK. She specializes in lash extensions and lashes lifts. Located on Khader Nawaz Khan Road, The Lash Studio and its team of beauty experts are primed to work their magic.
"When I moved to Chennai, two years ago, I realized there was no exclusive lash studio here like in the other countries and it was difficult to find a qualified lash technician in Chennai. I was an addict myself to lash extensions when I lived in The UK and I was wearing my volume lashes for almost 3 years. Every month I would go to get my infills done religiously from my lash technician. So when I moved to Chennai, it was disappointing that no one actually had a lash studio and that’s when I decided to start my own business on lashes here", says Renuka.
Renuka Praveen traveled to Bristol (UK) and completed a special, certified course on eyelash extensions and lash lifts. After working as a freelancer for years, she decided to open a studio to make it easier for her clients.
