I have previously been raving about Ebenezer on the blog, as it is the best place I have tried for lash extension, and the only place that I allow to touch my lashes. During the pandemic, I therefore had to make do with my own short lashes, and I went without extensions for almost two years.
Ebenezer was therefore among the first stops I made when I was back in New York. There are two Ebenezer salons in New York City, and the most wellknown is probably the one in Koreatown. However, I have always gone to the one that used to be on 7th Avenue, but which has now moved to 6th Avenue. The staff are all super sweet and the branch has many regulars. You are always greeted warmly, and when I called in to schedule my appointment, they remembered me despite the fact that I called from a different number than I have registered with them.
Ebenezer is somewhat more expensive than other places for lash extensions, but in return you can be sure that the result is always flawless. The lashes they use are so light that you do not even notice that you are wearing them, and the lashes look natural, as if they were your own. I got a lot of questions on Instagram about how long a lash extension last, and that’s hard to say, as it depends both on the quality of the extension job, but also on individual factors, as well as how good you are at taking care of your new lashes. At Ebenezer, my lashes usually look brand new for 3 weeks, but during week 4-5 they start falling off. Though because the lash extension look so natural, you don’t need to get a refill or remove the rest of the lashes, you can just let them fall off if you want a break before getting a new extension. I will be back with a more detailed guide to lash extension later 🙂
