Havana Nights: Xtreme Eyelashes and Eyebrow Services
Eyebrow Shaping & Xtreme Eyelash Extensions at Havana Nights Spa Chicago
Eyebrows and eyelashes are major features which define the face; the eyebrows shape our faces and give definition to one’s eyes and forehead whilst the eyelashes can add expression. Several cosmetic methods have been developed to enhance the look of one’s eyebrows, to remove hair, change the color, or change the position and or expression of the eyebrow. Several options exist for removing hair in order to achieve a thinner or smaller eyebrow, including tweezing, waxing and threading.
Xtreme Eyelash Extensions
Xtreme Eyelash Extensions add length to human eyelashes. Synthetic single fibre polyester threads are applied to individual eyelashes to create a fuller, longer look.
Xtreme Eyelash Extensions come in various lengths, colors and thicknesses, and can even be worn during sleep, showering and swimming. However, excessive exposure to oil can weaken adhesive bond. Eyelash extensions differ from “fake” eyelashes in that they are applied meticulously by a trained eyelash extensionist one extension to each individual eyelash.
The procedure to attach the extensions takes an average of one and a half to two hours for a full set of extensions of roughly 80-150 lashes per eye. When properly applied, eyelash extensions are designed to bond to one’s natural eyelash. Xtreme Eyelash Extensions look completely natural, unlike strip lashes.
Xtreme Eyelash Extensions may last from three weeks to three months, depending on the cycle of your hair growth. While the artificial lash is placed directly upon the natural lash, they both will fall off naturally as your lashes cycle out and re-grow. Most people choose black lashes, however, brown, red, green and purple are available. Colored lashes are good for accents.
Eyelash extensions have been around since the late 1990s, used mostly by fashion models and Hollywood makeup artists. However, since the early 2000s, many salons have offered this service to an increasing number of fashion savvy clients. Eyebrow extensions are also available.
The lash extension never touches the skin, or impedes the growth of the natural lash.
Ways Eyelash Extensions Ease Wedding Stress For Brides
If you’re getting ready to say “I do” to your man, we’ve got some news to share on why you might want to think about “Saying EyeDo™” to the addition of eyelash extensions. Eyelash extensions offer a bevy of benefits for any bride-to-be and it’s tough to narrow the list.
We asked Xtreme Lashes President Jo Mousselli to give us her perspective, as a professional woman with an always full schedule, on the top 5 reasons eyelash extensions are indispensible additions for busy brides:
1 – Save Time (Pre-wedding):
Wedding preparation is hectic! There’s so much to accomplish and there never seems to be enough time for the bride to get to everything. Eyelash extensions are a great time saver! Brides can skip the morning makeup routine and make it to all their errands that much faster all while still looking fabulous!
2 – Save Face (Pre-wedding):
Stress and lack of sleep plague many a bride-to-be during the weeks leading up to the wedding. Eyelash extensions can create a well-rested, wide-eyed appearance and help disguise any signs of stress or sleep deprivation that often show on the face.
3 – Stay Fresh (Day of):
The actual wedding day is typically quite long for brides. Preparations begin early in the morning and celebrations last late into the night. With eyelash extensions, brides are photo-ready throughout the entire day with no need to stop for cosmetic touch-ups!
4 – Stay Flawless (Day of): There’s nothing worse than a beautiful bride sporting raccoon circles of mascara around her eyes. Since just about every bride tears up at her wedding, eyelash extensions are the ideal solution to prevent any mascara mishaps!
5 – Set Sail (Post-wedding):
Starting out a wedding in eyelash extensions extends into the honeymoon. For brides planning any post-wedding trips, eyelash extensions are the perfect travel companion. New wives can enjoy all the extracurricular activities at their exotic destination of choice with no fuss & no muss and still look absolutely fabulous!
The Bridal Timeline For Extending Your Wedding Beauty
So, you’re a bride-to-be who wants to have her eyelashes extended for the first time. What’s the ideal time frame for you to come in that will make the most of your wedding lashes?
We’ve set up a timeline guide below that will leave any bride blissfully blinking away on her big day and beyond!
The Full Set: You’ll want to apply your first full set of eyelash extensions early. We recommend you set the first appointment for 5 weeks in advance of the wedding, ideally.
- An early appointment allows enough advance time to ensure you have exactly the look you want on your wedding day.
- Any sensitivities or allergies can be assessed far enough in advance to avoid embarrassing photos or wedding day woes.
The First Relash: Schedule your first relash appointment exactly 2 weeks after your initial set.
- Let your stylist know if you’re happy with the overall look you received from your initial set. Would you prefer more lashes? Less? Are they long enough or too long? Thick enough or too thick? Would you like some eyelights to enhance your eye color? Now is the time to begin a transitional change to accommodate your wishes and have it completed before the big day.
- If you had any reactions to any of the products used on you before, let your stylist know now. He or she can switch up your adhesive or gel patches if necessary to see if another product will be better for your skin type.
The Final Relash:It’s time to perfect the final look – we recommend this appointment be scheduled 4-5 days before the wedding. You’ll have minimal shedding and still be free to shower and apply your wedding day makeup without worries within this time frame.
- If you were transitioning to a different length or thickness of lashes, your stylist will be replacing the remainder of the initial set about now to ensure the final look is as you requested.
- If there were any sensitivity issues before, determine if these were remedied by the changes made during the last appointment. If not, let your stylist know so you can discuss any further options.

The importance of a well groomed eyebrow
Nufree: Eyebrow hair removal
After determining the brow shape, the Nufree is applied warm, then removed gently, leaving skin absolutely smooth. This refined technique is comfortable and result-oriented.
Eyebrow hair removal is definitely a process best left to professionals. It a pretty risky at-home treatment since the precision involved in applying product to the brow area is something that takes specific training and years of experience to really master.
With Nufree hair removal clients are allowed to tan, shower, apply make up or have other salon or spa services. NO WAITING!
Threading originated in India and the Middle East, and can be used on the entire face. A precise and intricate art, threading hair removal uses twists of cotton thread to trap unwanted hairs and remove them from the root. Quick and easy, threading assures perfect lines and hair that grows back slower and thinner. Threading and waxing services are offered at Havana Nights by skilful technicians.
