"I highly recommend Janus from Refined Beauty if you want a set of great quality and long lasting lashes. I've had lashes elsewhere in the past and Janus is the most gentle and thorough technician I've found. She will give you great advice regarding what lashes to choose to achieve the results you desire and her prices are excellent. Her studio is absolutely lovely and very relaxing, and she always follows up with a text the day after to see if everything's ok. Very gently, and caring, very highly recommended.
