SEMI PERMANENT LASHES – THE LASH LOUNGE
I’ve been giving my lashes a little breather from lash extensions this year, but The Lash Lounge is the one spot I always recommend to anyone who asks where to go. Sheun, the Head Lash Artist, is the absolute best and the lash extensions they use are the softest, lightest, most natural looking ever!

EYEBROW THREADING – STELLA’S ADDICTION
Stella of Stella’s Addiction is literally the ONLY person I’ll let near my brows now. I think the fact that she’s a professional makeup artist helps, because she understands how important the brows are when it comes to framing a person’s face.

MICROBLADING & SEMI PERMANENT MAKEUP – THE BEAUTY ATELIER
Kachi, the owner of, The Beauty Atelier, is literally a BEAST at Microblading. I follow her on Snapchat, she always shares her work, and I am yet to see a job she’s done that isn’t flawless. They also offer other beauty procedures like semi-permanent eyeliner (yes, you read that right). They are worth following on Instagram where you can check out all their work.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL – LASERDERM CLINICS
Laser hair removal is the BEST! But what a lot of people don’t know is that the machines used to perform the procedure differ, most especially for women of colour, specifically black women. The machine used to administer laser hair removal on darker skin tones is completely different from that used for other skin tones, so it’s not just any laser clinic you walk into. Laserderm Clinics use the appropriate machine for darker skintones (I asked them personally), so that’s why I’m recommending them to you.
A lot of women suffer from stubborn hair growth in areas they’d rather not have it grow, e.g. the chin area, top lip, bikini line, etc. Laser Hair removal has been proven to be one of the best solutions for that and, over time, helps lighten up the area darkened by ingrown hair scars.
