Hybrid Lashes…$90 Mondays and Tuesdays!!!!!

 

Hybrid Lashes

Hybrid Lashes

Yup! you read that correctly: A full set of Hybrid Lashes are $90 Mondays and Tuesdays reg $110. Why? what’s the catch? there really isn’t a catch, the same quality and service as a full price set just discounted on Mondays and Tuesdays from 10 am to 10 pm at FCL Burlington and FCL Toronto.

Hybrid Eyelash Extensions

Hybrid Eyelash Extensions

Why is this a big deal? Hybrid lashes are the client favourite over the other types (classics or volumes). A mix of classic lashes and 2D volume lashes create a fuller fluffier lash line while still remaining tasteful. They last longer remaining full longer than classic lashes, have more dimension than classic lashes and allow the artist to be create in design.

Fuller fluffier lashes that last longer AND! you save $20 on Mondays and Tuesdays 10 am to 10 pm at the Toronto and Burlington studio…what’s not to like!

7 Day Guarantee

 

You work hard for the money, we all do! The cost of living, especially in the city of Toronto is high, housing..food…life basically. Many of us have a full time job and a side hustle in order to make ends meet. When there’s a little bit of extra money you want to treat yourself to something that makes you feel good, like lashes. You decided to come and see us for that special treat and we appreciate it! How much does it suck when you decide to do something for yourself, spent the money and it doesn’t meet your expectations. Perhaps the extensions did not hold up, maybe a few were uncomfortable, they aren’t delivering the “BOOM BANG YASSSSSS” you were looking for. Doesn’t matter, you’re not happy and that’s the bottom line ..first of all, we’re so sorry!! and secondly we are would be MORE than happy to fix them for you. We have a 7 day Guarantee on all of our work, regardless of service type (relash or full set Classic, Hybrid or Volume). Please give us a call 1.855.721.7108 or email us and we would be thrilled to book a complimentary (free) service for you. This is not awkward at all for us, we would much rather you were happy with the service and felt valued as a client then lose you as a client.

FCL Toronto – Where the heck is it?

 

FCL Toronto eyelash extensions studio directions

FCL Toronto 777 Richmond St. West offers the best lashes in Toronto at the best price, but where the heck is it?? We’ve had more than a few people become frustrated trying to find us. There are a few really good reasons it’s on the second level and a little out of the way.

#1. Safety – because we are open until 10 pm Monday to Friday as well as 7 days a week including Sundays it’s important that everyone stays safe. 777 Richmond has a double door security feature, so you Buzz us at 2023 then come up the stairs to the top landing where there is a second door to open. The Buzzer in our suite is only answered if we are expecting a client. This is for the safety of the artists working and for the safety of clients who are there having a little lash nap.

#2. I’m sure you’ve noticed we have the best price in Toronto, offering Full Sets of lash extensions for $75, with no lash count. If we were located at street level, the cost of the lease would be insane. We are only able to offer this type of pricing because the rent is affordable on the second level and we can carry those cost savings back to you.

#3. The building itself is GORGEOUS, 777 Richmond was a warehouse for many years before being purchased and converted into a commercial loft style space. During the renovation the integrity of the building was completely maintained. The floors, ceilings and lighting is all original. The wood from demolition was kept and remade into the doors to the loft space entrances. The building has character, is a reminder of the history of Queen West and really is just cool AF.

So! we might not be the easiest lash studio to find in Toronto, but we try our very best to be the best!

Take’em off then Put’em Back On!

 

Lash Removal and a Beautiful Fresh Set

Lash Removal and a Beautiful Fresh Set

If you’ve ever had lash extensions then you know that they “grow off” so having to remove them by a lash artist isn’t something that needs to be done often. However there are times when your eyelash extensions do actually need to be removed. Firstly, Flirt Custom Lash Studio does not remove the work of other studios – I know annoying right?!. There is a really good reason why though, 90% of the glue being used within eyelash extension studios contains formaldehyde which is toxic. In order to remove toxic glue you need toxic remover, our adhesive does not contain any toxins so our remover cannot remove the work of other studios. Over the years we have tried and tried to remove lashes put on from other place only to waste everyone’s time because we could not get them off. Moving on….we can certainly remove our own work, quick and painless the extensions will slip right off with no trouble. Ok so now they are off….let’s put them back on!! hold up….you should never do a removal and reapplication in the same appointment. It’s very important to shower after the removal, giving your face and lids a really good scrub. All of the remover MUST be gone in order for the new set of lashes can be reapplied and last without falling off. So now what do you do? if you are coming from another studio but want to switch to FCL (we would love to have you btw) you can either ask the current studio to remove your current lashes then give us a call to book your fresh set of extensions. You can wait until all your current lashes grow off (about 4 weeks) then come to see us. If you are a current client then the options are much the same: come on in to remove the lashes then have your new set applied after you have showered or wait until your lashes have grown off and do another set.

So you can take’em off no problem, you just have to wait to put’em back on…but! by following that advice your new fresh set will be guaranteed to last.

Spray Tans and Lash Extensions

Spray Tans and Lashes

Spray Tans and Lashes

Spray tans and eyelash extensions are basically a MUST HAVE for those heading on vaca….wake up bronzed and pulled together. However! when booking the appointments for these must haves which one do you book first? Spray Tan should be booked first, given an opportunity to get soaked in and rinsed off thennnnn have your lashes done. For Example: Book your spray tan Wednesday and your lashes Friday, you want the tan powder rinsed off before you come in for your lashes. So why Spray then lash? When you come to get your eyelash extensions done we will be putting eye patches under your eyes for the application process. The patches can leave white marks under the eyes when the patch is removed….now you look like a bronzed raccoon with really great lashes. The other reason is that the artist will be touching your forehead during application, potentially ruining the tan on the forehead ANDDDDD the artist now has spray tan all over her hands (not cute). With the right planning you can be a flawless bronzed pulled together Goddess on your well deserved vacation.
