Spring means it’s time for batting practice — as in, eyelash batting. Envious Lashes has opened in Commack offering expertly applied eyelash extensions. This is the Long Island outpost for Clementina Richardson, a well-known celebrity lash guru (her clients include Mary J. Blige, Naomi Campbell and Kate Capshaw). She operates another location in Manhattan.
The Commack space features eight stations with cushy beds accessorized with mirrors, custom lighting and individual coves where clients can store personal items.
Service starts with a consultation to choose length, curvatures and widths of lashes for a custom set. An initial set of extensions will take from one to two hours to apply and is attached strand by strand to existing lashes. Prices run from $140 for a starter set of feathery lashes to $330 for a dramatic “bombshell” look. With proper care, lashes can last up to three weeks before recommended refills.
Envious Lashes is located at 6564 Jericho Turnpike, Commack, 631-258-0985, enviouslashes.com.
