You’ll be giving swoon-worthy butterfly kisses in no time thanks to this luxury eyelash studio tucked away in the office towers in Hyde Park Corner.
If you’re in the market for long, voluminous lashes, you’ll be happy to know that Joburg is chock-full of beauty studios. I’ve tried many of them, but the most impressive so far is one right on my doorstep that I only discovered recently. A typical set lasts two to three weeks – I’ve tried and tested this myself – so you won’t have to fret over curling or applying mascara!
Flutter lash, brow and tanning studio gives the impression of elegance and serenity with grey walls and furniture, purple décor and comfy beds that are so soft you’ll probably fall asleep while one of the lash gurus use their pin-point precision to give your eyes natural-looking fringe. The spot’s relaxing atmosphere, cleanliness, and polite and accommodating staff only adds to the draw.
Your lashes (choice of classic or volume) are completely tailored to your specifications and eye shape, and prices range from R700 with a junior lash tech (over one years’ experience) to R1,000 with a senior lash tech (over four years’ experience) for a two-hour full set application. If full-on glam isn’t your thing, I highly recommend the 90-minute ¾ set (R750 with a senior lash tech).
As if you needed more reason to book an appointment ASAP, Flutter also offers semi-permanent and permanent makeup, from top lash-enhancing liner to microblading hair stroke 3D brows, plus lash lifts, Vinylux and Shellac mani-pedis and Norvell express spray tans. On your way out, be sure to stock up on some essential lash care products like oil-free eye makeup remover, lint-free cleansing cloths lash extension cleansing foam and clear liquid mascara coating sealer.
