With mask wearing going nowhere fast I see a massive demand for lash and brow services.

The eyes often are referred to as the "window to the soul" and if you have been thinking about doing something new this summer I'd highly recommend having a lash lift. It helps to give a fuller looking and lifted curled up lash effect, which are unlike extensions that involve adhering false lashes to create fuller lashes and can be damaging. The lash lifting treatment works on your natural lashes and essentially perms your own lashes into a lifted curled state.

The treatment takes about 45 minutes. We start by cleansing the eye area measuring your eye and lash length. Then we apply a silicone roller to fit your lashes and lengthen them. Lashes are placed into the correct position and three different solutions are applied for a few minutes each. Lashes are separated to create the lift and curl. Tint can be applied after having the lifting done. This is optional but most clients get this if they don't have natural dark black lashes. It does create a better result with the tinting. A patch test is required for both lash lift and tinting services.

The results are amazing even on the shortest of lashes. All clients young and old have been getting this done since we reopened and I have noticed that all eye treatments are in high demand.
 

EYE BROW LAMINATION

Eye brow lamination is another fantastic service that clients are loving. This can be tailored to the client's required tastes and needs. We discuss with the client what look they are after and desired effect of the brow lamination. Again, this is a treatment that works with your natural hair. If you have curly, unruly, long, misbehaving brows this is the treatment for you. If you would like fuller looking brows this gives amazing results.

I find the older the client is the more the brow is going in the wrong direction. Unfortunately this just happens with age in some people more than others. We require a patch test for this also. It helps to straighten the brows and place them in the direction desired. It's similar to the 12 week blow dry. The results vary with every client as its down to taste and what hair is available to work with.

As we age our brow hair can thin out and brow lamination can really help to give a fuller shape and brow over all. I see a lot of younger clients looking for lamination, as it has become a trend among them for a very lifted, separated look. It really is a very tailored service to the individual and taste definitely comes in to it.

The tax you’re really paying for your health

With the budget just squared away, there’s always an air of “how did I do out of it?”

In Ireland, we enjoy a public healthcare system which is touted to become a universal healthcare system. Maybe “enjoy” is the wrong word.

We have it, and we use it, and, of course we pay for it. We justify the constant ratcheting-up of our tax burden to pay for rising health-care costs. That tax is on our wallets.

We also pay another type of tax: When we’re unhealthy, we don’t get to do the things we like. When we’re overweight, we don’t always say “YES!” when our kids ask to go to the swimming pool.
When we’re unfit, we don’t take our buddy’s invitation for a weekend hiking and camping trip. We can’t start jogging because our knees hurt; can’t lift weights because our back hurts; can’t cut down calories because we feel we need the energy.

Those things are taxes. Physical taxes, but they’re not the worst taxes we pay.

The worst tax we pay is the mental tax.

When we’re self-conscious about our fitness or health, we don’t want to start exercising. We don’t want to look dumb or fail.

We don’t want to start a new lifestyle because our families will say “good for you”, because they know we need it, or they’ll say “you don’t need that …” and lie. Or they’ll roll their eyes because they know we’ve failed before.

When we’ve been away from the gym for four months, we don’t want to do that first workout because we’re going to be last. It’s going to suck and we might get embarrassed.

SELF IMPOSED TAX

The Government makes us pay financial tax, but the other two – physical and mental – are self-imposed.

No one cares if you’re slow.

No one cares if you finish last.

No one cares if you blow your nutrition this week and have to start all over again.

You’d stop caring about what others thought about you if you realised how rarely they actually do.

Everyone thinks about themselves, mostly. That’s the tax they’re paying – and most of us overpay.

We’re taxed enough. Stop worrying about what you look like and start caring about what makes you feel good.

Members of Killarney Valley Vintage and Classic Club raised €500 for the Kerry Mental Health Association during their first tractor run since April 2019.

30 tractors took part on Sunday including two rare Ford 3000s from 1974 and an even rarer Zetor Crystal from 1980.

Departing from the club’s new ‘Vintage Shed’ on Lewis Road, the convoy travelled to the communications mast near Coolick in Kilcummin, where participants enjoyed views of the wider Castleisland district and Killarney Valley.

“Some of the drivers were never up there before and they were amazed with the views across the two valleys,” organiser Tom Leslie told the Killarney Advertiser.
