Hold On, Gently

In today's chaotic turbulence, sometimes we need to slow down. Take a moment for yourself. 

A fulfilling life is appreciating the simple beauty in the world, and crafting special connections.

We know the eyes are the windows to the soul, so that makes your lashes the layer of ultimate drama.  Now, there's a new game in town and if you thought curling your lashes the old fashioned way was the only way to get maximum curl and height there is a new procedure that produces long lasting length for your lashes.  Curled lashes give the illusion of long, lush lashes. 

BEFORE photo



A lash lift in an in office treatment that takes around 45 minutes.  The treatment may bring back memories of the 80's and includes perm rods and solution.  The solution and rod is applied to your lashes and the curling result will last up to 3 months. No more curling with your lash tool, you'll wake up everyday with brighter looking eyes. WOW!  

Yes, you will wake up like this. Enhancing your beautiful face just keeps easier and more fun.  


The treatment is $75 and Jen at The Office of Dr. Brooks & Spa On the Green does a GREAT JOB!  413 .565.4400

Yours in style & beauty,
