Beba Beauty is an eclectic, charming salon, day spa and boutique, located on Westwood Blvd. Convenient to the 405 and 10 freeways, and just minutes from Westwood Village and Century City, it’s been a favorite staple of the community for 30 years. Beba Beauty’s experienced staff of skin care professionals is led by esthetician Julia Pikosz, the owner and her daughter Liliana Felleti (eyelash extraodinaire). This mother-daughter duo is so much of what makes Beba Beauty so special. Their attention to detail and general loveliness makes it such a pleasure to visit this salon.
This newly re-designed Westwood oasis is where we go to give our eyelashes an extra pop of #glow. If you've never had eyelash extensions, boy are you in for a treat! Its like high heels for the face.. a little something extra to make you feel that much more beautiful. Plus, you won't need to wear any eye make up so you end up feeling way more natural and low maintenance-- absolutely perfect for a vacation. However, beware! Not all eyelash extensions are created equal. Some can look tacky or even damage your eyelashes so you want to be careful about where you go. We wholeheartedly put our glow stamp of approval behind Lana's skillz. And anyone she trains will surely be at the top of their game as well. She will make it impossible to tell that you've had them done, but people will be saying how well rested and hot you look... you're welcome :)
*** ATTENTION, please!**** // GLOW DEAL: When you go into Beba to get your first full set of eyelash extensions, enjoy a FREE Mani/Pedi! Just mention How You Glow while booking and you'll be good to glow.
We asked Lana to provide some more info on lash extensions so you have a better idea of what to expect:
WHAT ARE LASH EXTENTIONS?
Lash extensions are single lashes applied individually to your own lash. They are available in various lengths and thicknesses to enhance your own lash line, creating a dramatic look, or an extremely natural one. Lash extensions can be faux mink or siberian mink, with the later offering the most natural, weightless look. Beba Beauty also specializes in mixing two in its signature “Mixed” Lash Extensions.
Whichever you choose, the results are longer, thicker, more beautiful lashes!
WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY APPOINTMENT?
Your first appointment will last approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours. Your esthetician/lash technician will evaluate your natural lashes and consult with you as to the look you wish to achieve. The length and thickness of the lashes to be applied depends on the length and strength of you own natural lashes. Even if you have very fine, thin lashes, we can still achieve beautiful results. We will always recommend a lash extension application that will maintain the health of your natural lashes.
During your appointments you will relax with eyes closed while your esthetician applies the lashes. Some clients are so relaxed that they fall asleep! There is no pain or discomfort! Once your treatment is complete, you will relax for another 5-10 minutes to let the bonding agent dry. Remember, it takes 24 hours for the bond to fully cure.
Touch-ups (sometimes referred to as “fills”) are done every 2-3 weeks. As your natural lashes grow and shed, a new lash grows in and will receive a new extension. Regular touch-ups maintain your beautiful lashes. If you wait longer than 3 weeks, we will need to do a more extensive treatment, usually a ½ set.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY LASH EXTENSIONS?
Home care is simple, just gently comb your lashes with a clean, dry spoolie brush in the morning.
Please note that if you sleep face down or rub your eyes repeatedly, you may notice an uneven wear on your lashes.
Please let us know if you currently have lashes from another salon. We will evaluate your lashes and determine the best course of treatment.
If necessary, lashes can be professionally removed. NEVER try to remove lash extensions yourself, as this can permanently damage your natural lashes.
FOR THE BEST RESULTS
Please arrive 5 minutes before your appointment time to complete our intake form.
Please make sure your lashes are completely free of makeup and skin care products.
If you wear contacts, please bring your glasses to your appointment. You should plan on no contacts during the 24 hour period after lash application.
After application, the lashes should not be exposed to moisture for 24hrs. This means no showering or shampooing!! Please also avoid steamy workout rooms, saunas and excessive heat. The first 24 hours after application can greatly improve the life and wear of your new lashes.
Oils and glycols can break down the adhesive, so please take care when using skincare products. We recommend and carry eye makeup removers and cleansers that are appropriate for your use after receiving lash extensions.
We offer a lash sealant that will extend the life and beauty of your lash extensions when applied every 3rd day.
If you choose to wear mascara, it is to be applied to the tips of your lashes only (not the roots) and we recommend that you purchase mascara designed specifically for lash extensions. Waterproof mascara and most commercial mascaras will damage your lash extensions, therefore we do not recommend them.
