‘Tis the holiday season once again! Renowned for parties, family time, and getting far too little rest to prepare you for Aunt Hilda’s perfume or your boss’ wacky dance moves at the company holiday party. Odds are at this point your undereye bags are looking bigger than Santa’s sack of toys and you’re feeling about as attractive as Rudolph after an especially rough Christmas Eve.

Time to give thanks to Townhouse Spa for their new godsend, Uptown Girl lash extensions. In just an hour and a half you can be transformed from droopy and tired to bright and sassy with their line of oh so glam eyelash extensions. Completely different than your standard drugstore fakes, Uptown Girl’s eyelashes are applied individually with a non-irritating adhesive glue and last for 6-8 weeks.

Ada Ayala, my fantastic extension specialist, spent two hours crafting my gorgeous new peepers, leaving me bright eyed and ready to face the rest of the holiday season. At a relatively pricey $400 for a full set these aren’t an impulse buy, but for an event or a mid-season pick me up they might be just what the doctor ordered.

For all of you lucky BN readers, we’ve teamed up with Townhouse to offer 20% off of your eyelash extensions now through January 31st. Simply mention BeautyNewsNYC when booking your appointment and you’ll be guaranteed to impress your future mother-in-law.

Thanks so much for the great promo offer from Uptown Girl for my eyelash extensions! After a recent move to NYC from LA- and having gone to two other places in the city (not impressed!) I was still on a quest to find the right eyelash extensionist for my yearly upkeep. I also found their pricing quite reasonable – touch ups 120/hr. and par for what I’ve been paying in LA for “quality” lashes. Finally my search is over (in that category at least). Now I’m thinking about getting some semi permanent hair extensions from them- another Uptown girl specialty. I’ve been wearing clip ins and want a more permanent alternative. I’ve heard they do amazing work and the hair is great but would like to know if anyone else has had hair extensions from Uptown by chance?

For gorgeous hair extensions, Ada Ayala is the absolute best in the entire NYC area. I have been a client of Ada’s for several months, and I could not be happier. Ada is like an architect who builds layers, and depth to create dramatic and quality blended hair extensions that look so natural. I highly recommend Ada’s extension services!

After getting my first eyelash extension for my wedding in France, I needed to find the perfect spot for touch-ups. I was so amazed with Ada’s service that I haven’t taken them off in almost 6 months now… Don’t think I can ever live with my regular eye lash anymore, can’t get sick of being perfectly eyed as early as 6:00 a.m. – A must!

I went before my wedding to get eyelash extensions. It was amazing how good they looked without looking fake. I get compliments all the time from people who think I just have amazing eyelashes naturally. I have also noticed that my eyes are less irritated because I am not wearing mascara anymore. So people who tend to have issues with mascara eyelash extensions are a great option. Ada really does a fantastic job and anyone who is considering eyelash extensions should definitely book with her. They won’t be disappointed.

What a eye opener!…..Literally. After having Ada apply the lashes, friends whom i haven’t seen in awhile, couldn’t get over how great i looked. Some thought i have got an eye lift others asked who did my botox lol. The technique which Ada uses applying each lash individually, provides an amazing result, leaving your lashes looking very natural. The whole experience was very pleasant, in fact there were few times i had actually fallen asleep. I have been getting my lashes done by Ada for over two years now and i wouldn’t let anybody else near my lashes. She is a PRO!
Thanks to Ada i also get top of the line hair extensions. Once again i couldn’t be happier with her services. The way Ada is able to blend in my natural hair with the hair extension is truly an art. i would recommend her to anybody that wants to look fabulous and won’t settle for anything less than perfection.
