I have been there once but I will come back again. Their service was great and I'm so happy I made appointment with Shigeru.
I've been going to Shigeru for my eyelash extensions for the past 2 years. Honestly, he and his well trained team has done the best and most comfortable lash extension for me. I've tried other places when I lived up in the Bay area, but they did not compare to the technique and style Shigeru has.
So this is my first time doing eyelashes .. I was a little nervous on how it's going to look. Shigeru did an amazing job!!! It looks so natural.. it's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks Shigeru!!!! I will definitely come back for a fill. Also, Martin helped me prepare for my appointment. I'm so glad that I found your place... I highly recommend Shigeru
A very relaxing and comforting experience. The salon is super clean and zen. I always fall asleep and wake up beautiful. Another important note, I experience zero burning, these folks here are the real deal. Quality.
First time having lash extensions!!! What an amazing experience! They look natural! Exactly what I asked for, Lucy was so professional and her light fingers turned my dull eyelashes into magic!! Thank you so much, I will be back in three weeks for a fill in! From a very very happy customer!
I wish there were more stars I could give this company! They're absolutely the business in LA. I love love love my lashes and everyone says they look so natural. I'm a tv executive so I'm around a ton of talent and artists and it feels so good to be complimented on my lashes. All the his technicians are amazing. You will never be disappointed by their service. Always on point!
This is my first time doing eyelash extensions and Jiyoung was super patient with me and did a wonderful job. She was also so accommodating when I wanted to be a touch-up and change the looks a bit! I would highly recommend her! And it was so relaxing, I fall asleep both time when I was there! Thank you, Jiyoung!
I recently moved had my lashes done 2 weeks ago by a different salon and they turned out terrible. I desperately searched for a salon that specialized in Japanese eyelash extensions because I'm super picky. I found Lashes by Shigeru and booked an apt with Lucy who took the time to remove my weirdo lashes and replace them all with the most amazing luscious lashes.
Shigeru is my favorite, I fall asleep every time I go bc of how relaxing it is. Make sure to make an appointment in advance because he gets booked really fast!
