Flaunt those peepers with help from Courtney Akai
We die for long, luscious lashes. So let’s face it ladies, sometimes a coat of mascara just isn’t enough. And trying to apply false lashes from the drugstore always ends in an eye-stinging, covered-in-lash-glue mess.
Enter Courtney Akai Lash Boutique, the mecca for those seeking bat-worthy lash extensions that will leave you flaunting your peepers all over NYC.
From hair extensions to permanent makeup application, the boutique has a ton of offerings that get us all hot and bothered. But their lash extensions really take the cake. Using premium adhesives and synthetic polymer lashes (if you really want a “wow” factor, you can even get mink lashes), you get to choose the length, thickness, and overall look you want to achieve. So you can do something totally natural or go totally glam.
After lying down on a comfy bed in their midtown studio, Courtney herself painstakingly applied every last lash to our eyelids (she’s a total pro — and a total doll, we might add). We emerged with such magnificent falsies that we were getting complimented on them for weeks on end.
We’ve been batting our lashes with abandon ever since. And her boutique has been so slammed with lash-loving customers, she just opened a fab new studio in Soho. Now the only problem is snagging an appointment with her.
