When Gineann Creaneythinks of the clients at Body Beautiful NY, a full-service day spa she owns in Mount Kisco, she thinks of women with a packed schedule. “Most of the clients who frequent Body Beautiful are extremely busy maintaining a high-powered position at work or at home raising children,” says Creaney. “These women want to feel and look beautiful, and we believe feeling beautiful can equal feeling confident and powerful.
“One of our most popular and most frequented services is our eyelash extensions,” adds Creaney, who credits their appeal to the fact that “they are an easy addition to life. With lashes, women can come in and relax for an hour or so and leave with lashes they don’t need to fuss about for four-plus weeks.”
Follow-up lash services can even be done on a lunch break. “The original set of lashes can take a bit longer than the touch-ups because we are starting from scratch,” Creaney says. “Your first lash appointment might be an after-work service, but once you’ve got them on you can maintain them with more flexibility.”
According to Creaney, prices change depending on the service, but a full set of eyelashes costs between $175 and $400, while touch-ups run about $85.
