The Mommy Chronicles

When thinking about a regular beauty routine that makes you feel confident, knowing that you are keeping it cute 24/7 – few people include busy mom’s as part of the group that keep such a routine. In fact, a HUGE portion of our client base at the Toronto, Burlington and Brampton/Mississauga locations are in fact very busy mom’s. Balancing children, careers, family, friends and just about everything else under the sun, mom’s are in need of any extra time available. Eyelash extensions have replaced the need for any kind of make up at all, their lashes open up their eyes – masking last nights lack of sleep.

Wearing no make up other than perhaps some lip gloss, these mom’s cruise through all their activities with a little more pep in their step. Feeling pretty with no effort at all, they can wake up – wash their face and take on the world.

Time is limited and finding time for yourself is almost impossible, we totally get that – the Burlington and Toronto (Queen West) Studio’s are open 7 days a week including Sundays. It’s easier to find child care on the weekends so we kept that in mind when developing business hours. Burlington and Toronto are also open late night, giving mom’s a chance to get home. Feed the troops, change into comfy’s, get everyone settled in and then head to your lash appointment to get some instant pretty in your life.

Toronto’s Top Lash Studio!!

In November of 2015 Flirt Custom Lash Studio was named within the TOP 5 EYELASH EXTENSION SALON’S in Toronto!. Usually we “fish” for compliments and LOVE hearing how wonderful we are and how beautiful the Queen West loft space is. However! this time we got one of the biggest compliments from BlogTo we could ask for – named in the Top 5 Eyelash Extensions Salons in Toronto. We have worked hard to get on that list, providing affordable eyelash extensions in a market where the price of this beauty service keeps rising. Open 7 days a week including Sundays and staying open late evening so after work appointments aren’t such a rush. The greatest feather in our Lash Cap is that we are the ONLY eyelash extension studio that offers just eyelash extensions. Applying lashes all day everyday to a variety of clients is all we do at all of the locations, in order to be the best we felt it important to focus solely on extensions – seamless application and design.

So not for nothing, we busted ACE to get on that list of the Top Eyelash Extension Studios and we deserve to be there dammit!

Am I Too Old For Lashes?

Too many women have said they are too old for eyelash extensions, even if ONE woman has said it, that’s one too many. No one is too old to keep it pulled together. Part of being a woman is feeling like a woman, taking care of ourselves regardless of how old we are is an entitlement not a privilege. In fact, eyelash extensions are PERFECT for ladies that are on the other side of menopause. The eyelashes are lighter in colour, thinner than they used to be and sometimes eyesight isn’t what is used to be.

Mascara is necessary to keep the eyes from disappearing into the face. 40% of the client base at FCL Burlington is over 55 years of age, waking up made up without the hassle of mascara. One of our Burlington clients had us dying laughing:

“Why wouldn’t I get extensions? I can’t see my lashes without mascara and I can’t see where I’m putting the mascara without my glasses. But I can’t get the mascara on when I’m wearing my glasses! I show up every 3 weeks, lie down, have a nap and wake up looking even better than I ever could when I’m wearing my mascara”.

Amen to that! Too old to keep it cute?……NEEEEVVVEEERRR

1/2 Price in Toronto on Sun’s and Mon’s!

In an attempt for world domination and a campaign to ensure everyone in Toronto can get an extra 20 mins of sleep in the morning and still Wake Up Made Up….we are offering 1/2 Price Lashes!!! Every Sunday and Monday FCL Toronto 777 Richmond St West will be offering 1/2 price on Full Sets of lash extensions. Noooooo this isn’t with a Junior stylist and noooooo you only get a few lashes and then have to pay to “upgrade” to a full set. You’re getting a Senior artist filling those babies up in the same GORGEOUS way we would any other day of the week. Whats the catch? 1/2 Price is only Sundays and Mondays, on FULL SET services (Half Sets and relashes are full price).

(Full Set Lashes at FCL Toronto by a Senior Artist)

Same Beautiful space where we will give the same beautiful face but at 1/2 price!!

Toronto Space

FCL Toronto is the jewel in all the Flirt Custom Lash Studio locations, a truly beautiful space where we give “good face”. Located on the second level of 777 Richmond St West, above Light Form and across the hall from Bit Strips. The building kept it’s authentic loft feel by keeping all the original wood from previous renovations. The ceilings, floors and doors are from the original structure of the building. Light fills the space and adds to the bright airy atmosphere. The space where you get your lashes done should be just as beautiful as the work that’s created.
