Until eyelash extensions and lash lifts became a thing, we could only rely on short-lived options like falsies and mascara for longer and thicker lashes. Today, there are so many styles of extensions to choose from! Whether it’s natural eyelash extensions or dramatic flutters you’re after, popular lash and brow salon DR. LASH offers it all.
Brow embroidery and eyelash extensions in Orchard
Led by Gwendolyn Toh, DR. LASH opened its first salon in Orchard Central in 2017. In just two years, the homegrown company has gone on to launch in two more locations: VivoCity and Paya Lebar.
Similar to how a doctor cares for the health of his or her patient, DR. LASH aims to provide top quality services that don’t compromise the health of your natural eyelashes. The lash and brow salon was started after its founders heard many horror stories around lash extensions; even we’ve heard of how some unfortunate folks have lost all their lashes because of unskilled therapists or poor quality products – tragic!
The team strives to achieve clinical standards when it comes to hygiene, customer service and lash quality. Each service is customised to your eye shape and personal preferences. There’s a wide range of styles on offer, from natural eyelash extensions for an effortless look, to the more dramatic Kardashian-inspired lash crafts (an in-house term for their lash styles). The salon uses premium single-strand lashes that are super thin and lightweight; that means they won’t weigh down on your natural lashes.
Don’t miss out on their brow embroidery services, too. From classic, single-stroke options, to powdered, air-brush styles, each pair of brows is designed to flatter your unique features.
Our review of Dr Lash in Orchard Central
There are many lash and brow salons in Singapore, but you don’t always find one that ticks all the boxes. After trying out a natural eyelash extensions service at DR. LASH Orchard Central, I’m happy to say that this spot has my stamp of approval!
Centrally located in Orchard, the salon is bright, clean and spacious. The services are conducted by professional lash and brow artists in individual rooms, so privacy is never an issue here. I wasn’t a fan of the dramatic look for myself, so Au Naturel was the perfect pick for me. Featuring unlimited single-strand faux lashes attached to each individual natural lash, this natural eyelash extensions service is great if you want a subtle boost. It’s the most natural of the lot, but still adds a beautiful volume and length to existing lashes.
I informed my lash artist Vicky that I wanted something light and natural as I work out frequently, leaving the choice of length and curl in her hands. If you know exactly what you want, you can be more specific. If you prefer something more dramatic and voluminous, try Scarlett, which is designed to give you a sultry, cat-eyeliner effect. The Kim K and Avant Garde styles are also super popular and highly raved by local influencers. I’ll definitely try one of those the next time I have a special event to attend!
After a gentle lash spa (clean lashes are important to prevent infections), Vicky went straight into the application process. DR. LASH’s signature three-step lash cleansing spa includes protein removal, foam cleansing and primer application to prep the lashes for the extension process. Soon after, I drifted in and out of a deep sleep, finally awakening to picture-perfect flutters exactly an hour later. These lashes are so fine and light, they don’t feel heavy at all! I’m absolutely in love with how they turned out. The new lashes open my eyes and make me look more awake – exactly what I need as I tend to look sleepy most times.
To make your lash extensions last longer, you’ll need to avoid water contact for the following 24 hours. You’re also given a lash spoolie to comb through the lashes twice daily. They should last for around a month with good care. I can’t wait to return for my touch-up in two weeks!”
