Anyone can feel lazy when it comes to getting ready in the morning. We all wish we could get out of bed and already look made up and good to go. But chances are, this morning, you did not wake up like this. So when we were first introduced to eyelash extensions in Bangkok, it seemed to be the answer to so many of our problems. Full, thick, long lashes every single day without a touch of mascara? That’s the dream.
Whether you’re now a pro lash lifter, or you’ve been contemplating getting extensions for years but still haven’t gotten round to it, it’s a good idea to educate yourself on where the best eyelash experts are in the city. Good thing we’ve done that for you. After asking dozens of lash lovers where they go for their lifting/extensions sesh, we found that these five places are the darlings of the savviest eyelash crowd. So, before they go towards the glues, the tweezers, and the silky strands, turn your eyes to look at our list of the best places to get eyelash extensions in Bangkok.

When you have people working so close to your eyes, you would hope they’d have steady hands. At Take Care, the specialists are true to the name and are absolutely scrupulous. But they’re not just diligent with their hands and cleanliness, they’re all-round alert to your needs and style too. There are no set formulas here: every treatment is personally designed to suit your individual eye shape. All you’ve got to do is tell the specialist what kind of vibe you’re going for and the number of strands you’d like done (they charge per strand). You’ll get beautiful, natural-looking 100% silk lashes for 1-2 months.

If you’re more buffet than à la carte, go for the fixed price at Novalash and treat an unlimited number of lashes. The stylists here use medical grade adhesives and meticulous with each and every lash. This is known as one of the best boutiques for eyelash extensions in Bangkok for their aftercare – your lashes feel wonderfully clean and weightless after treatment.

You might have walked past this salon a few times if you’re ever travelling along the BTS. But don’t be too quick to put down this station-side boutique. It’s actually a great spot for a quick yet reliable lash-lift if you’re in a rush for an event later, of if you’re simply looking to save a bit of cash. True, the results may not be “oh-my-god” stunning, but your lashes definitely get a decently elevated look that lasts around 3-4 weeks. If you’re looking to keep things natural and easy-going, this is a great option. They also charge per strand, so you pretty much have full reign over the power of your lash lift as well as the time and money you’ll spend.
