Local Bridal Guide: Get Fuller, Longer Eyelashes For Your Wedding With Extensions From One Of These 7 Philly Salons
If you’re of the mindset that a coat or two of mascara is all you’ll need to make your eyes pop on your Big Day, we advise you to read on. While mascara can indeed do wonders on its own, you’d be surprised what a little extra TLC can do for your lashes, especially with all of the services that promise to lengthen, thicken, and darken your fringe.
Eyelash extensions, in particular, are growing in popularity on the wedding front, and for good reason—having long, lush lashes that can hold their own against wedding-day tears and stay intact through your honeymoon is a major bonus for gals who have come to rely on the mascara wand.
There are a few different types of extensions on the market now, all of which are designed to give your lashes an added oomph. Whether you want a full, natural looking set or something a bit more dramatic for the occasion, lash extensions can make a world of difference. Take a peek below for the area salons that offer ’em.
AME Salon & Spa
Where: 111 Waynewood Avenue, Wayne
What: For the ultimate in relaxation, locals head to this suburban salon and spa where their menu of treatments and therapies runs the gamut from seven chakra water massages to a bentonite mud wraps. On the menu here you’ll find Xtreme Lashes, which were designed to resemble the look and feel of natural lashes. Since these lashes are applied individually, the process can take a few hours to complete. The initial cost is $250, with refills recommended every two to three weeks for an additional $125.
Deneen Marcel Lashes
Where: 525 South 4th Street, Suite 59, Society Hill
What: With more than 25 years of experience in the beauty industry, Deneen Marcel knows a thing or two about eyelashes. Make an appointment at her Society Hill studio and you’re guaranteed to leave there looking as bright-eyed as ever. Prices range from $275-375 depending on the lash style you choose—classic lash, classic curl, va va voom, and Siberian mink lashes are on the docket here.
La Moda Nails & Spa
Where: 203 Kings Highway East, Haddonfield
What: The permanent eyelash extensions at La Moda are carefully placed one-by-one to create a variety of different looks, from round and open eyes to sultry, almond-shaped ones. Plus, they’re always offering promotions so be sure to inquire when making your appointment.
Where: 815 Christian Street, Italian Market
What: For perfectly groomed brows and long, enviable lashes, look no further than the new eyelash and brow bar at Laurentius Purnama’s modern salon.

Prices range from $250-350 depending on which type you choose.
Where: 1601 Walnut Street #903, Rittenhouse Square
What: Eyelash extensions are one of the specialties over at Rittenhouse Skincare, where they’ll strategically place single synthetic or mink lashes to fit your eye shape and the look you prefer (natural, flirty, open-eyed, and glamorous are a few of their suggestions). Prices are based on the number of lashes used, but begin at $150 for a partial set (40-60 lashes) and $220 for a full set (75-100 lashes). Rittenhouse Skincare also offers safe lash removal.
Where: 1515 West Chester Pike, West Chester
What: This West Chester massage and beauty studio uses silk mink lashes to add length and thickness to your natural fringe. Choose from three styles—Gretta Garbo, Marilyn Monroe, and Starlet—to highlight your eyes and make them stand out on your Big Day. Prices begin at $100.
Ursula’s About Phace
Where: 1700 Sansom Street #201, Rittenhouse Square
What: Cosmetic and skincare veteran Ursula Augustine is highly sought after for her beauty expertise, so it’s no wonder that clients flock to her when they want to amp up their lashes.
