Owned and operated by Japanese women who relocated to New York, Curvy Lashes offers beauty services from lash lifts, lash extensions and eye brow microblading, to embellished Japanese nail art.

From lash lifts or perms to tints, eyelashes can be enhanced for a more natural look. For elongated and dramatic lashes, extensions are available. Also available is a new Japanese treatment called Labo, which helps promote healthy and vibrant eyelash growth. Work closely with the lash technicians to create the best lash look for your lifestyle.

For eyebrows, Curvy Lashes offers both microblading and brow lamination services.  With the latter being a temporary alternative to the brow tattoo of micoblading, both options will leave your brows looking fuller and flawless.

Don’t let the name Curvy Lashes fool you. The nails technician, Sayaka, is a master of her craft. Her precision and attention to detail is unmatched when it comes to nail art. She has a wide range of stones, studs, and embellishments to adorn your nails, but it’s her freehand painting of designs or sculpting 3D details that is most impressive. Please check out her Instagram to see the different techniques, designs, and patterns she meticulously creates. Not only are the nails she designs works of art but they last a very long time too!
