What are Lash Extensions?

Lash extensions are putting individual lashes on top of the real lashes. There are several types of materials that lashes are made from and the most commonly used is synthetic lashes.Lash extensions one by one is the most natural lash extensions method and is also widely known as classic extensions. Other methods involve putting more than one lash on each lash which makes them look fuller. For instance, in 2D lash extensions the stylist place two lashes on each individual lash. This can go up to 10D. 


Is it possible to get natural lash extensions that doesn’t look to fake?

Natural-looking extensions depend on two factors:

  • How full are the extensions; going up from one by one to Russian volume, it looks less natural. 
  • The quality of the job; A professional stylist can create a more natural look with 3D and 4D than an unprofessional lash stylist with the classic method. There are many details such as the right combination of lengths and thicknesses and how to map them at different parts (the stylists called this lash mapping) that makes a huge difference in the final results. If the stylist has the right skills and knows all the details will able to create fabulous results.

Why the prices are so much different?

This is a tricky but important quesiton. Applying lash extensions is a time-consuming process that requires a lot of focus and patient. The duration of the treatment depends on how skilled the lash stylist is. But at the same time, if she is committed to giving you her best. These are two important factors that define the price. The more professional is the stylist and the more passionate she is about her job, the higher will be the price and vise versa. This is why you shouldn’t go to places that are too cheap. Especially if it is your first time. Prices are a great indication of the professionalism of your lash stylist and if she is there to give you the best of her rather than just doing a job for the pay.

Is it difficult to take care of lash extensions?

Lash extensions are supposed to add not only beauty but also convenience. If you have lash extensions, you don’t need mascara anymore. so You are always ready. But there 3 things to remember before getting your first lash extensions:

  • They should not get wet the first 24 hours or the glue will lose its effects.
  • Do not use any products that contain oils or it will break down the glue and your lashes will fall down. so no Mascara, no eyeliner, and no makeup remover that contains oil.
  • Try not to rub your eyes/lashes with your hand or for instance pushing them into the pillow when sleeping
  • brush them daily and clean them with special foaming cleanser which doesn’t contain oil (available on our webshop and also in both locations in Den Haag).

Are lash extensions harmful?

Eyelash extensions are safe if applied correctly. The certified stylist knows how to use the glue not to harm your lashes and will give you the right tips on how to take care of them. So lash extensions do not make your lashes fall. but this is again another reason to be selective on where to get your lashes done as the wrong application could harm your eyes and lashes.

What is Henna Brows and what can I expect from a Henna brows treatment?

Henna Brows

Henna brows is a relatively new method to dye eyebrows using natural plant-based ingredients.

Is Henna brows for everyone?

When talking about skin and hair type and color, Henna brows is a great treatment for almost every skin and hair color especially because there are different colors available that can be mixed and create the color that matches the client’s hair color. But because the product is natural, it can cause skin irritation; that is why you need to do an allergy test48 hours before the treatment if it is your first time. If no sign of irritation appears, then it is safe to perform the treatment.

how long does Henna Brows’ effect last?

Henna Brows last longer than normal brows tinting because it stains the skin and hair. The color on the eyebrows lasts up to 6 weeks and on the skin lasts up to two weeks. This varies for different types of skin and hair.

What can I expect from Henna brows?

Henna brows is a great step up from tinting. You have a better texture of color, longer-lasting effect and on top of all, Henna brows products are natural and require no oxidants to activate in comparison with the chemical products that are used for brows tinting.

What are the advantages of Henna brows over brows tinting?

Another big advantage is, the stylist will draw the shape before the treatment and can give a perfect look to the brow. this is not the case for brows tinting, and can only be done by Microblading. That is why Henna Brows is also perfect for those who are interested in Microblading but are not sure about the shape and how they feel after having fuller brows.

So whether you want to do Microblading later or you just want to have perfect brows that don’t need daily makeup, Henna Brows is a perfect treatment. let’s not forget that Henna Brows’ cost is at the same level as brows tinting, considering the long-lasting effect.

Frequently doing a facial treatment has several benefits:

benefits of facial
  • The skin is deeply cleansed and exfoliated

A facial massage stimulates connective tissue and promotes blood flow so that cells receive more oxygen and can absorb nutrients better. Therefore skin care products can optimally do their job. For a more intensive anti-aging treatment, you could undergo a peeling or micro-needling treatment.

  • Provides relaxation

    How to find the best place to get your eyebrows permanent make up in one simple Step!


    • Microblading is truly an art, not just a process. This makes microblading special and different than other methods of eyebrow PMU. Microblading is done by making fine cuts using a special blade. Therefore, the methods involve machine are not Microblading and the results are not as natural as Microblading.

    Micrbolading by Athena Beauty Care

    • What is the difference? The shape of the machine, the vibration of the machine during the treatment and the way the needles operate in your skin doesn’t allow the artist to mimic the hairs as precise as in Microblading. Microblading tool is very similar to a pen and this allows the artist to do a perfect job in drawing eyebrow hairs. 

    Microblading toolSo Your goal should be to find a permanent make up artist, not just a technician.

    Your results will be only as good as the artist you choose. You want to find someone who has a good balance with artistic ability as well as professional hands on experience. having a lot of experience without artstic abilities doesn’t end to the best result. So make sure you ask if the artist is capable of giving you the look you want. The quickest way to qualify a technician or artist is to ask them to draw you a set of brows. If they are not natural hair like strokes that look like what you would see in a drawn portrait or picture, then find someone else who can draw beautiful brows on paper for you.

    • You’ve probably seen wide range of prices in the market. Focusing on price more likely mislead you in choosing the right place. You should NEVER shop for price in this matter. This is your precious face and a bargain price isn’t a bargain if the end result is less than beautiful. so focus on the quality. There are many technicians who have inadequate training and more importantly, limited if any artistic experience and ability. Microblading is not simply a technic that you can learn by a training program. The beautician has to to be an artist. Drawing an eyebrow with blade is just like drawing a portrait on paper. If she can not draw it with pen how can she make those fine cuts with blade?

    How Beauty increase Happiness?

     Personal beauty raises happiness

    The most common explanation for the connection between happiness and beauty is based on economics. In one study, a Yale professor of economics found that being beautiful adds to one’s overall life happiness, and beautiful participants were ranked above the average. The reason for this, is that prettier people tend to make more money, and it is this financial leg up that affords beautiful people great happiness.

    From an evolutionary standpoint, beauty can make us happy because attractiveness implies health, which in turn implies strong reproductive capabilities, which allows us to attract more successful mates.

    Beauty often starts with something small! For instance a real smile makes us more beautiful. a small beauty treatment such as having a well shaped and neat eyebrows makes our face more beautiful.

    • Happiness doesn’t age.

    Some may grow old and regret the years gone by. Happy people don’t seem to age as much because that youthful glow of possibility is still there. the same applies for beauty. Thanks to beauty specialists, you can postpone aging signs by using variety of beauty treatments.

    • When you’re happier, you’re healthier.

    Studies show that people who are happy are more likely to be and stay healthy their entire lives. They have energy from all that happiness, so they’re more likely to be active, to eat things that are good for them, and to generally enjoy life because of it.

    So they infer that good-looking results in high self-confidence and can earn more opportunities for job, income, or spouse.

    studies measure the impact of individuals’ looks on their life satisfaction or happiness in U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Germany. The results show that:

    1. Personal beauty raises happiness.

    2. The majority of this positive effect comes about because personal beauty improves economic outcomes – incomes, marriage prospects, and others – that increase happiness. Thus much of the positive effect of beauty on happiness is indirect – through its effects on aspects of economic life that increase happiness.

    People are often drawn to the attractive people around and the “pretty people” tend to have greater influence overall.

    So, what can you do to turn it around?

     Finding things that will make you happy in life;

    • Play up your positives — you may not be the most beautiful, but you have your own specific beauty, the personality, musical abilities …
    • Find acceptance within yourself and who you are. This can help build happiness in the long term as well.
      • Pay attention to your personal beauty. Sometimes doing a small treatment like Eyelash extensions can tremendously change your eyes look, increase your self confident as well as the first impression of people you meet. 
    • Don’t you feel confident with shape of your eyebrows or do you have a scare on your face? Thanks to beauty specialists, there are variety of treatments that can help you to earn your beauty back; Such as Microneedling, Microblading, Phi-Ion

    Although some of the cosmetic or clothing changes cannot make you feel better in the long term, addressing some of things that can make you happier are good things. These things will also boost your endorphins and your mood.

    • Happiness Surround yourself with happy people. They will rub off on you.
    • Be in the moment … Enjoy the now.

    It seems as if women’s voices are joining together and being heard: We want to feel and look attractive, but there isn’t just one way to do that. We want to look like ourselves, not someone else.




    7 benefits of Microneedling


    micro needling at Athena beauty care

    Collagen is arguably the most vital way to improve the look of skin, and this goes far beyond reducing wrinkles. By stimulating collagen growth with microneedling, you can also reverse sun damage and discoloration. A 2015 study showed microneedling to be a promising treatment for the blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation that comes with this chronic condition.  International Journal of Dermatology confirms that microneedling is a new way to achieve “skin rejuvenation, tightening, and scar remodeling, and that it offers a simple and effective treatment for aged skin with minimal side effects.

    These are the 7 benefits of microneedling:

    1- Makes you look younger by reducing fine lines and wrinkles

    This might be the single best and more important benefit of microneedling… That it can actually help you LOOK younger and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

    ​How does microneedling make you look younger?

    It has been shown that the small pin holes created by the thousands of needles​ break into the upper levels of the dermis and cause the release of growth factors to “repair” and “heal” from the microdamage that has been caused.  Basically your body is overreacting to the small trauma thinking that there is a BIGGER trauma and this healing process results in the release of growth factors that increase collagen and elastin levels.

    ​In addition to the stimulation of collagen the microtrauma also results in the formulation of tons of little blood vessels which supply blood, oxygen and nutrients straight into the dermis. The combination of these changes results in a reduction in wrinkles, healing of photodamage and tightening of existing skin – all of which makes you LOOK younger.

    2- On top of microneedling’s ability to smooth and correct damaged skin, it also has the added bonus of tightening loose skin, which makes it great for older men and women.

    3-  it improves product absorption tremendously

    Did you know that only 4 to 8 percent of that expensive serum you’re using on your face actually penetrates your skin? One of microneedling additional appeals is that it improves product absorption tremendously. Studies confirm that the treatment can actually help topical medications penetrate skin more efficiently, allowing you to reap the full benefits of any product. This makes total sense considering the fact that microneedling creates thousands of invisible holes in your skin that are ready to absorb products in a way clogged pores can’t.

    4- Improves the quality and texture of your skin

    The pinprick needles actually stimulate remodeling of existing collagen and promote formation of new collagen and revascularization (blood vessels) in the skin.

    Collagen and elastin are the two components of your skin that give your skin the normal “plump” look every woman wants. And starting at around age 30 this collagen starts to degrade naturally (other things can even make the degradation happen more quickly as well), which is when women start to notice slight changes and sagging in their skin.

    The good news is that this healing process starts almost IMMEDIATELY after the procedure.

    5- Reduces pock marks and scarring

    Another huge benefit is that microneedling helps reduce acne scars which are notoriously difficult to treat​. 

    So how does microneedling help with scarring?

    When you have any sort of scarring on your face (or anywhere on your body) your body naturally undergoes a process known as fibrosis. This is good when healing, because it makes everything stick together, but beneath the skin the glue is so strong that it can literally pull the skin down and create pock marks or scarring on the surface of the skin.

    The microneedling procedure helps to “break up” all of the glue and fibrosis underneath the skin which allows the skin to “let go” of the tenting and release the surface of the skin. Naturally this results in a more smooth surface to your skin.

    6- Reduces blackheads

    This is another pretty cool side effect of microneedling and is especially helpful for women who suffer from LOTS of black heads (especially those who have PCOS, or hormonal acne). 

     The controlled trauma and thousands of needle pokes actually liberate and knock out blackheads during the entire procedure. 

    Immediately after you will notice a reduction in the total volume of blackheads on your face (especially in your nose, but be careful because the nose is sensitive!).

    You will also notice that your pores are smaller in size for about 3-4 weeks after the procedure due to the healing effects and revascularization that occurs.

    7- Exfoliates the skin 

    ​Pretty much any treatment that mechanically disrupts the epidermis will result in some exfoliation. 

    Exfoliation refers to removing the upper surface of the epidermis, usually the stratum corneum (which is the upper most skin layer). This is important because your dead skin cells live on this layer and removing this layer of the epidermis makes your skin look fresh and smooth almost instantly.
