Glamorous, trendy and a wonderful beauty tool, eyelash extensions are the prime accessory that women should invest in for the New Year. While high profile celebrities like Beyonce, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj wear eyelash extensions as apart of their daily regimen, more and more women are getting eyelash strips or individual extensions to enhance their beauty.

Cathy Lee, a popular nail and eyelash technician at Judy’s nail salon in northeast Washington, D.C. says that at least 50 clients come to her on a weekly basis for application of individual eye lashes.

“It takes me 20-30 minutes to apply lashes. I believe eyelashes make women look so beautiful. They add so much flavor. They are addictive. I love helping women look good and feel good.”

Lee says that most of her clients are impressed by “celebrity-ism” and often want to emulate the standard of beauty that they see in the magazines or on TV. “I saw Beyonce and I wanted them,” says Pat Beard one of Lee’s clients. “I feel so naked without my lashes but I feel sexy when I have them on.
