The Courtney Akai Difference

She’s a maven with all things lashes. But there’s more to Courtney Akai: this go-to gal for lash extensions ensures your visit to Courtney Akai Lash Boutique is top of the line, every time. Courtney Akai Lash Boutique prides itself in offering the most intimate, tranquil, personal experience.

A few things that make Courtney Akai Lash Boutique the best in the business:

Lash Quality: The lash extensions are made of synthetic silk polymer to hold a permanent curl (when wet, too). Mink extensions are available, as well, for a silky soft feel. Tapered tips, for a realistic look, not to mention a variety of lengths, curls and thickness to accommodate each person’s lashes for top safety standards.

Adhesive Quality: Courtney Akai Lash Boutique uses premium adhesives to ensure the best results. The Platinum Bond Permanent adhesive is extra durable, which lasts through the lash growth cycle. In addition, it is heat and sweat resistant, so it is a prime option for those who exercise, swim or frequent saunas and steam rooms. For clients who have extremely sensitive eyes, fume-free glue is also available. Both adhesives are top quality, pharmaceutical grade, and entirely safe.

Health & Safety Standard: The glue used at Courtney Akai Lash Boutique is void of any toxic and/or cancer-inducing chemicals, including Formaldehyde, a commonly-used substance in adhesives. All tools and products used at Courtney Akai Lash Boutique are sterilized between appointments and clients.

Customization: Courtney Akai Lash Boutique treats each customer as a special, A-list client. Personal consultations are recommended; client’s needs and desires are heard, validated and respected. The value is, therefore, unmet. In addition, Courtney Akai Lash Boutique appreciates the time and money factor tremendously, thus each lash is applied at the root of the natural lash, which helps to maximize the length of time between touch-up appointments.

Experience and Education: Courtney Akai was one of the first trained eyelash extension artists in New York. She has been in the cosmetic business for more than 15 years, and is a licensed esthetician. Courtney Akai is not only certified with two leading lash extension companies, she has her advanced certification with NovaLash, the premier lash extension company in the country, and as well as being a NYC Certified NovaLash Trainer. Courtney has two certifications in the newest “Volume”, “Russian Volume” technique as well as select stylists upon request.
