Lash extension devotees often keep their sources hush-hush, but this week, award-winning lash specialistAndrea Starr is taking her business to the sidewalks of Newbury Street, opening a dedicated Eyestarr studio in the former Britt Ryan boutique space. This 2012 "Best of Boston" expert has moved her private, appointment-only business from Commonwealth Avenue to a sunny storefront, complete with a stately centerpiece fireplace and mirrored frames of Hollywood iconsincluding Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, with tufted chairs and cool gray walls setting a relaxing tone for beautifying.
Her loyal client base raves about not only the long, bushy lashes she applies—using medical grade adhesive and surgical tools, no less—but also Starr'sbrow shaping prowess, a skill she honed while training at Elizabeth Grady and managing LuxLash earlier in her career. The focus is on a natural look for lashes with classic, timeless brows. The former is achieved through 200 extensions in every full set ($350), utilizing a variety of materials and four different lengths to create a custom look for every face. This couture touch holds true to Starr's assertion that lash and brow services are an art form.· Eyestarr
