Alex has insane talent, incredible knowledge, and is super sweet and down to earth.

I first got my lashes done for my wedding. She has a great special for brides that includes a trial to be sure that there will be no allergic reactions or problems. I loved not having to wear a false eyelash “strip” at my wedding, and having the lash extensions last through the honeymoon! Each lash is perfectly placed, and the overall application is flawless. I love that hers really last- I’ve wore them to Hawaii a few times and even through tanning oil, salt water, high winds, and sweat, they lasted over 3 weeks!

I also highly recommend the facial waxing and eyebrow shaping.

The other reviewers are spot-on, AC Lashes are the best in the area!

Alex is the best!!! I’ve been to many places in the area and she tops them all.

This place was fantastic! I was very nervous because I have seen some crazy extensions done before. I wanted a long yet natural look and that’s exactly what Alex gave me. She truly loves what she does and it shows! I recommend this place and Alex to all of my friends so I thought it was only fair to share!

Alexandria does incredible work. She is meticulous about ensuring the lashes look perfect. This is my first set. All of my girlfriends are jealous of how full and long my lashes are without looking over-the-top. Compared to others I have seen, these are by far the best. They look so glamourous. I don’t have to wear a drop of makeup with them and I still get hit on. Alex is also just sweet and adorable as well as professional. I would recommend her to anyone looking for gorgeous and perfect eyelash extensions.

Alex is amazing. I receive so many compliments when I am out. The best part is that people think they are my lashes, not extensions. She is always professional and easy to talk to. Alex makes sure I do not leave her spa until every lash is perfect, even if it takes a little extra time. She is the best!

Allison H., (Bellevue, WA)

Alex does a really wonderful job on the eyelash extensions!! They last for a long time and never get messy and tangled. Her pricing is reasonable and she tells you what’s good for you. I recently moved to California and am so worried that I can’t find anyone does extensions as well as she does!! I wish she’s here! ūüôā

As soon as I walked into Alexandria’s spa, things somehow just seemed right. It is in a sanitary, well appointed space. There is tranquil music playing in the background. She has you rest on what appears to be a massage table where she painstakingly applies each lash. You can either chat with her or zone out. I am comfortable the whole time. Now about the results! They really are the best. I get complements all the time from strangers, acquaintances, and friends alike. Also, I can really tell the difference between the ones I get done here and the other ones I’ve seen around. It’s become a big trend for salons and big boutiques to offer lash extensions. I’ve leaned that oftentimes some of these technicians don’t know what they are doing. Other women I’ve met have told me that they are really lucky if they have any lashes left after two weeks. Mine last about 3 weeks to a month in between fills and look great.

To sum it up, Alex is a great technician who knows what she’s doing and has a passion for it. She knows how to tailor lashes to each individual, whether you want subtle, all out dramatic, or somewhere in between like me. I would never go anywhere else.

Alex was great. I first saw her work on a friend and couldn’t stop looking at her eyes. I’m hooked…she considers herself an artist and really thinks about the right shape of the lashes on your eyes to best complement your eyes and face shape. She is an absolute perfectionist which is good especially when she’s working near your eyes. She is honest and will tell you if you need extensions or tinting (which is less $) The location is a little weird but you get over it once you see her work.

I almost don’t want to tell people how amazing Alex is at applying lashes. My lashes are short and straight. Curling them does nothing and having contacts and allergies made mascara difficult. I have been to all the lash salon specialists in Seattle and was so disappointed. They were either applied poorly, or didn’t last even though to my 2 week fill.

I was about to give up when I found Alex! She is so good at what she does. Her lashes are beautiful. They look glam, but natural at the same time. She is speedy and fun to chat to while you under her expert care. She even cleans up my brows while I’m there! Her prices are good too!

She sends me a text reminder a few days before my appointment and if I need to reschedule, I can do it by phone or text.

I love that I can leave the house now, add a little lip gloss and still look beautiful. Her lash extensions are the best! I recommend her with very high praise.

I AM VERY IMPRESSED by Alexandria’s precise work on my eyelash extension and eyebrows. She is extremely knowledgeable on how to work with my short straight asian eyelashes. Her prices are extremely reasonable i will be coming back for more! I have been to Dina S. Goods, and Salon tewl, and believe that her price and services is much more better. Definitely a recommended place all types of ethnicity. The place is in a very comfortable setting with relaxing soothing music while the service is being performed.

I LOVE my eyelash extenions!!! Alex does an AMAZING job and uses high quality Nova lashes. The length and curl is perfect and they last a long time. Alex’s rates are great, too.

You can tell Alex is a perfectionist when it comes to eyelashes – she makes sure each one is placed on perfectly and you have an even amount of lashes on each eye. She’s truly an “eyelash artist” and you can tell she really cares about making sure every client leaves her studio with the best looking set of eyelashes ever.

Not only that – but she has great rates. I was getting my nails done at a local spa and they saw I had eyelash extensions and tried to vie for my business for lashes. I told them I was extremely happy with Alex and had no plans of switching, so then they tried to win with cost. They were nearly twice as expensive! Their fills alone were like $100! And truly – even if they were cheaper – I wouldn’t switch from Alex. She’s the best.

I recently started getting my brows waxed there too. 5 stars for brow waxing and shaping too.

Gina C., (Bellevue, WA)

I’ve been getting lash extensions for almost two years now. For the first year and half, I’ve been on a quest to find a technician that could give me the extensions that I completely satisified with. My quest ended six months ago, when Alex did my lashes. Thank you Alex! For providing a service that helps girls like myself look prettier.

Judy Kim , (Mill Creek, WA)

starstarstarstarstar

Alex is great! I have been to several other spas that also offer eyelash extensions and have had the best experience with her. I was leaving overseas and I called her several days before and she squeezed me in. While I was overseas, I was in 90 degree heat, swam in salt water and was in very windy weather and my lashes survived! I feel this speaks well for the quality of the lashes and glue she uses. The price is very reasonable for the quality. I have been recommending Alex to all my friends who envy my lashes.

Kelly C. B. , (Kirkland, WA)

starstarstarstar

I’ve tried several different lash extension locations in Seattle and Eastside over the years and I have to say Alex is the BEST! I’ve been going to her for over a year now and I will never look back to the other boutiques. She takes her time with the lashes without making you feel like you’re just another number. I get countless compliments from Alex’s work I never received when I went to other lash extension places. I don’t know how she does it but these lashes look totally natural yet glamorous at the same time! You are NOT going to run into clumpy overuse of the glue with her or over applying lashes on each individual lashes.

The ONLY reason why I didn’t give a 5 star rating is not because of the quality of her work but because I live sort of far from her current location in Issaquah. I have a pretty busy schedule and it’s hard for me to trek it all the way out there. However, I do always make it out that far because that’s how much I am addicted and love her work. I would recommend her to any of my friends and family!

I have been going to Alex for lash extensions for about 9 months.  Although it would be more convenient for me to find someone up north, I have seen enough bad lash jobs that I refuse to go to anyone else.  She is meticulous and detail oriented.  She assesses your life style and your specific lashes to determine the best extensions that will not ruin your natural lashes.  I would and have recommended her to anyone who asks.

Kelly C., (Bothell, WA)

starstarstarstarstar

LOVE the work Alex did on my lashes. It was my first time getting extensions and I only knew minimal information regarding after-care, and Alex took great strides to ensure I knew how to properly take care of my lashes and get the most use out of each fill.
I walked in and saw a very cute, very clean salon. There were little amenities throughout my experience that made me fall in love. There was a pillow provided to put under my knees while she worked on my lashes, the bed was covered in a fluffy, super cozy blanket, the bathroom had cleanser and disposable washcloths to wash my face with.
Alex clearly knows what she’s doing. She decided which look to give me based on my face shape and natural lashes – something I hadn’t even considered.
The entire process was very pleasant. Alex is so easy to talk to, very knowledgable about beauty, skincare, and overall health (among other things!). Her salon is so cozy and comfortable.
Overall it was an AMAZING experience. I get daily compliments on my lashes and have had people hunt me down in public to ask where they were done. Will send everyone I know to Alex – you should go to her too.

Updated review

I’ve been using Alex for nearly 2 years now. ¬†2 years!!! ¬†I can’t believe how quickly time flies… ¬†And let me tell you – Alex is THE BOMB!!! ¬†There is NO WAY I’d ever get lashes elsewhere. ¬†Even if – God forbid – Alex was booked out for a month and I couldn’t get in and needed a fill – I’d rather have all my lash extensions fall out before I would have anyone else touch them (that’s never had to happen though b/c Alex always takes care of me and gets me in when I need it).

I’ve never done an “update” on any of my Yelp reviews before – but I felt it necessary this time because I saw that review that was recently posted that is an absolutely untrue reflection of Alex and her business. ¬†I’m sure any of you who read it can see right through it as posted by someone with an ulterior motive – but let me reassure you. ¬†As a 2 year loyal customer of Alex – nothing in that post rings true.

Alex is completely professional, super kind and friendly.  As you know, lash appts can last anywhere from 30-60 minutes and I enjoy every second of my time on that table chatting and laughing with her while she does her excellent work.  And if I ever want to use that time to take a quick cat nap Рshe makes it easy to fall asleep.  A cozy blanket, a pillow for my knees and soothing music.

My lashes always come out full and beautiful and last for weeks.  Her prices are incredibly affordable Рespecially considering the high quality lashes and glue she uses and the perfection with how she places them on each individual lash.

Although the building that her spa is in may not be “beautiful” – don’t let that fool you. ¬†Her spa is spotlessly clean and she’s decorated the inside SO well. ¬†Her glamorous framed artwork of Marylin Monroe, the fireplace she put in there that ads a cozy feel and wraps me in warmth, the stunning mirror at the foot of the table – these touches and more make her place a relaxing and inviting retreat to visit in the middle of a hectic work day.

So – bottom line – don’t be fooled or scared away by that illegitimate review. ¬†It’d be a shame for you to miss out on having the BEST looking lashes out of all your friends.

I feel so lucky to have found Alex!! I have been to several lash artists since moving to Washington and Alex is by far the best. She really focuses on the individual and giving lashes that fit you and enhance your natural features. I was also impressed that Alex educates you on how to care for your lashes and make them last. (This really impressed me because most places don’t tell you much so your lashes fall out sooner requiring more appointments and money)
With Alex you always get beautiful lashes that look great and last. This girl really is amazing!

Erin O., (Renton, WA)

Yes, lash extensions are expensive. Yes, they are worth the time and money if done correctly! So glad I trusted Alexandria to perform her artwork on my sparse and short eyelashes. She is genuine, knowledgeable and a perfectionist. My eyes look as if I have on eyeliner and mascara– with thick lashes that really pop! Sure makes the morning routine simple. I don’t feel them at all. So happy right now!

I came in for my first set of lashes in March 2012 after spending hours researching and talking to friends about their experiences and trying to find the right place. ¬†I am glad I chose Alexandria Couture for my experience–I have not been disappointed once. ¬†My first appointment Alex talked me through what she was going to do and asked me questions about what I wanted–I didn’t want anything too dramatic and she checked to see if I wore glasses so that she provided a length that wouldn’t interfere with that.

Her location is clean, comfortable (and warm in the winter!). ¬†When I go for a fill there is relaxing music and good conversation. ¬†I have had so many compliments on my lashes and can’t count the amount of times people have hesitantly asked me “…are your lashes natural?” because they honestly can’t tell if they are extensions! ¬†I fully admit I am addicted and plan on being a customer for a good long while.

Alexandria Couture Lashes is the absolute BEST lash salon in the Seattle Metropolitan area and beyond.

I got my first full-set from Alex a little over 6 months ago and have been obsessed ever since. From the second I walked into her clean and quaint salon, I fell in love. Alex was so knowledgeable and walked me through the entire eyelash extension process (how they work, choosing the right lashes for my lashes/eye shape, application, aftercare, etc.). Once she found out this was my first eyelash extension experience, she informed me that a very small percentage of people get a reaction to the adhesive glue and suggested that I do testing to ensure that I wasn’t allergic before committing to a full-set. Being the eager beaver that I am, it was hard for me to accept that I had to wait until Alex’s next available appointment to get a full-set, but I took Alex’s thoughtful advice. Luckily, I did not have a reaction and I was able to get my perfect full-set, but the fact that Alex offered this testing immediately showed me how much she genuinely cares about her clients, especially because I have NEVER heard of another salon offering this and Alex actually incurred the costs and expenses of the testing service.

Before I went to Alex, I was extremely hesitant about eyelash extensions. I kept hearing (and seeing) all of these horror stories from my friends who had gone to other salons in the area; they either got nasty eye infections or ended up with lashes that looked like spider legs, were patchy, twisting and fell out in less than a week.

Coming from a perfectionist, I can honestly tell how great Alex’s work is. She is a perfectionist, as well, and won’t let you leave her salon unless your lashes are perfect. Prior to extensions, I was an avid wearer of the strip false lashes. I loved how full they looked and was worried extensions wouldn’t look nearly as full, but I was definitely wrong. Alex can make your eyelash dreams become a reality and offer the best advice to make sure your lashes look stunning. Not only do I love the results, but I thoroughly enjoy my time during my appointments; I can relax and let my mind unwind or I could talk with Alex for hours.

I could go on and on about how great I think Alex and her work are, but my best advice for you is to make an appointment today and you will instantly understand my obsession!

I have gone to many lash places, and Alex does the best work! My lashes never feel heavy, especially after I teach hot yoga. ¬†All the sweat used to weigh my lashes down and eventually fell off within a week. ¬†I’m in the hot room 5 days a week, and a couple days I’m in there for 2-3 hours. ¬†Alex does a phenomenal job with making my eyes look beautiful and lashes full and fluffy! Thank you! Xoxo

I got mine done three weeks ago for the first time. I researched and googled for the best places to go for very long time. With many concerns in mind, i decided to try Alex’s. She was very confident in her skills, explained everything very thoroughly and made sure i was comfortable. The result was stunning. I loved it! So natural and beautiful. Coworkers told me they thought i naturally had such long beautiful lashes. I dont have to use mascara, eyeliner or fake lashes anymore, i dont need to.

Im in my third week but still pretty full. Other friend got hers done in Fremont area three weeks ago too but hers looked very sparse and she got her fills done today. I still haven’t. It lasts so long, i am very satisfied with Alex’s skills.

Alex really is the real deal. I literally consider her my beauty guru, she’s helped me with lash and skin tips, and always is willing to put in extra effort to do a beautiful, high quality job. The extensions always look natural, and Alex will adjust my fills based on the health of my natural lashes to ensure they are not damaged.

I love having extensions, I never have to wear any eye makeup and can be so much more low maintenance when traveling. Having tried drug store fakes and heard horror stories about other salons, i can honestly say I would never have my lashes done anywhere else.

Alex looks out for her client’s satisfaction and general well-being. She’s very genuine, well-educated, and always learning more about her business, always willing to share health and beauty tips that have made a world of difference for me.

Thanks Alex!

Professional and meticulous. Alex is truly an artist who takes great pride in her work, and it shows. I get gushing compliments regularly from ladies, men, photographers, other lash artists … sometimes from complete strangers around town! ¬†She is diligent about making sure her clients are aware of the lash application process, and provides loads of information and tips on how to best care for lashes, so that frequent fills aren’t necessary. ¬†I make it a point to always attend the appointments I schedule, as well as plan appointments weeks in advance, because Alex gets booked up quickly. ¬†Rightfully so, because her results are top notch!

It’s obvious that Alex works with customer-focus as the pinnacle of her business. She only puts forward her best work, and consults with her clients every step of the way to insure their comfort and happiness with results.

Updated review

I’m updating my review to state that I still go to Alex and I still get compliments on my lashes from random people – at purchasing counters, etc. Mostly from women who have already gotten lash extensions in the past who want another set, I’m guessing. It is a commitment and I’m not the best at upkeep. However, it totally saves time on makeup for me because I am usually in a rush in the mornings.

I’ve been going to Alex for months now and I have to say that I’ve gotten more compliments from her work than other lash extensions. Compliments on my “naturally long lashes”, that is! People are shocked when I tell them that they are fake. ¬†I never thought I’d get addicted to having constant eyelash extensions but as a working mom of twin toddler girls, I really love the fact I don’t have to wear makeup if I don’t want to (or have the time to!)

Vangie G., (Renton, WA)

Alex is the queen of lashes. I came to her after giving my lashes a break. I had been getting extensions done for about a year or so, but I was having to go more and more frequently due to how many lashes I ended up losing. Needless to say, a break was necessary.

After quite a few months, I felt comfortable enough trying again, but this time, I knew I needed to find someone outstanding. And I did find her. Alex taught me so much about my lashes and even skin care! My lashes are still healthy thanks to her and I don’t have to get fills weekly anymore! I can actually go 3 weeks in between now. Alex is fast, skilled, precise, and she knows what looks good for each individual. She even waxed my eyebrows and didn’t cause any pain. She had several tricks up her sleeve that made it easy for me and my skin was very thankful!

She seriously is the best. She knows a lot and some may feel like it is unsolicited, but this is her field. She only shares because she cares. I am so glad our paths crossed and that I found someone as great as Alex.
