You know those days where all you need is a little bit of TLC but life decides to throw you grenades instead? Well I was having one of those days, I won’t dabble into the details however believe me when I say I needed something, and that something turned out to be a little bit of Olive & July.
But first a bit of context. So, what exactly is this ‘olive and July’ business?
This little slice of heaven is Perth’s Newest Beauty & Wellness studio run by mega babe Chloe Sherrell, a young entrepreneur and beauty queen branching out on her own after five years of being in the industry gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience from Perth’s most luxurious and Elite salons – Think massage, lash lifts, waxing, reiki, facials, Makeup – All things beauty, tucked away in an exclusive architectural home in the heart of Cottesloe.
Well… Where can one begin? At first my endeavour was to find a place that could revive my distressed lashes from the battering they’ve received over the past year or so from my love of lash extensions – After months of beautiful long fluttery lashes my natural lash resembled somewhat of a bald eagle – Not exactly my #beautygoals – something had to give, it was time to give my lids a well needed rest and rejuvenation + a little something extra to be… well… not so bald.
The Lash Lift
WTF is a lash lift? I had seen lash lifts and lash perms float around social media – They entail no extensions but long lush natural lashes….SOLD, but how? Basically its a 1hr beauty procedure where your natural lashes are curled over a rod using a solution and dye, your eyes are closed and when its done you’re left with beautifully curled lashes pain free – lasting 6-10 weeks! – As a woman who believes strongly on referrals for any beauty treatment, naturally I posted on Instagram to find ‘Perth’s BEST lash lift’ – In about 0.001 seconds legit my DMS were full of messages informing me ‘I MUST SEE’ Chloe from Olive & July – So I did just that!
What I thought was going to be a singular beauty appointment turned out to be an incredible relaxing experience by one of the most incredible down to earth person I have met in a very long time.
After spending an hour in her studio, the photos speak for themselves – not only were my lashes revived, lifted and curled for the next 6-10 weeks – but my worries melted away with her calming music and down to earth conversation. She said I could go to sleep, listen to music, relax or have a chat, the choice was mine – naturally I chewed her ear off, but she always turned it back around to talk about me, and how I was feeling. It was so nice to be cared for genuinely!
