When I was looking to do lash extensions, I found an alternative that required less care and less maintenance than extensions: lash lift. I looked online at many salons to do a Keratin lash lift + tint done, and am so glad I researched and did my homework throughly and found The L.A.B. O.C.! After seeing all of the amazing and positive comments, I booked with Amy ASAP (booked in July and she was booked solid until September! If that doesn’t say something, I don’t know what does!) I was a bit nervous to get something like this done, but with Amy, it was such a great experience! Amy is so knowledgeable in her craft, kind, and just an overall sweet human being. She came out to tell me she was running a bit behind, and that proved to me that she is a perfectionist with her work and takes her time. That was good enough for me. The process of the lift and tint went by so fast, painless, and I was completely comfortable during the process. I also talked off her ear and we had great conversation hopping from topic to topic (we still do now that I have been going for about 5 months now). Something else I wanted to comment on was her studio. Sola Salons is kept up and is very nice. Amy's suite was perfect: very clean and a very relaxing atmosphere. So Amy, thank you SO much for my gorgeous lift and tint and for making me feel so comfortable! I love coming to my appointments and our fun chats! Thank you for making my experience absolutely perfect!

Not only is Amy a professional and absolute perfectionist in what she does, she is also the sweetest! I like being able to go in and trust her 100% while relaxing and talking about life with her - makes the time go by quickly and the experience that much better than other places where you lay in silence. Bonus points for Amy being a food lover!

I’m a very simple and busy girl, and normally won’t take the time to get ready, so every time I come to The L.A.B. I feel so lucky and blessed to have found someone like Amy. I go for the keratin lash lift treatment, and also get my brows shaped with a color boost. I wake up feeling beautiful every day for the next two months, it lasts me a great amount of time! The entire experience is very relaxing, and Amy takes the time to explain what works best for any of my concerns. She’s so funny, too! Such a blast to be in her chair hearing relatable stories about being a dedicated woman with a fierce perspective of life, and a a great eye for detail.

She’s so nice and courteous to her clients and always make me feel welcome, which is why I can see she has many loyal clients. If you ever decide to try eyelash extensions, I highly reccomend The L.A.B. and I highly reccomend getting them done by Amy. She’s very intelligent and knows her stuff!! Thanks again Amy!!

I never write reviews but I had to considering time after time I've had nothing but an amazing experience! Amy is the absolute best and I'm so happy with the results of my microbladed brows. From my first appointment she made this process so easy. Not only is she skilled and detailed but wonderful to talk to and knows how to make her clients feel comfortable. During the first session of getting my brows bladed she made sure that I was 100% happy with the shape before proceeding. I felt well informed of the procedure and after care so that my brows would maintain its best results. The before and after transformation was just incredible and I received so many compliments. 4 weeks later I went in for a complimentary touch up. My brows held so well Amy barely had to go back in to clean my brows up. I plan on going in again soon for lash extensions! If you are considering getting your brows bladed I highly recommend Amy.

I recently went in for a microblading session with Amy, and I am in LOVE with my eyebrows. Amy did such a great job, her technique was almost painless. Not to mention, I did not experience the terrible after effects of scary eyebrows that other people experience. I highly recommend going to The Lab Oc.

Jax is a total babe! Omg I cannot rave enough about this girl. I came to her as a refill from a different salon & she really opened my eyes to how lash extensions are supposed to look and feel. She is a true lash queen! My eyes were constantly itching and sometimes even hurting from the lashes that I had on from the other place. When they did my lashes my eyes would get teary the whole time & they just stung. I totally thought that was a normal part of getting lashes! & the itching & poking pain afterwards I totally thought was normal too! That was until Jax told me that it's totally not! After I got the most comfortable refill ever from her, no stinging, no tears, I opened my eyes & felt like nothing was on my eyes. I felt bamboozled! Did she just take everything off?!? 😂😂 Omg and I was sooo comfortable that I fell asleep! It was the best nap ever! & her music is so good! She was kind enough to remove all the old ones that were stuck together. & get this- the culprit for when my eyes would hurt was because my lashes were literally getting pulled out! I couldn't believe it! Jax took a photo for me to see which showed several of my own eyelashes pulled out from the root while still attached to a lash extension stuck to more lashes! Jax explained the growth cycle & how when lashes aren't separated correctly & get stuck, my lashes were getting pulled out when they weren't ready to. Freakin scary. Thank baby Jesus that I found her before all my lashes got ripped out. I feel like she's an eyelash encyclopedia. & I'm feelin like a rockstar with these new lashes ⭐️ Yassssssssss!

Highly recommend!!! My original brow lady moved out of state which is very big deal all us ladies can agree. And I now have Amy and she's been doing my brows for awhile now and they are better than before. I go day to day without makeup and my brows still look amazing and need little to no filling when I do wear makeup.

Avoid this business they have terrible customer service! I had to cancel my eyelash appointment because I woke up sick. I was charged a cancellation fee, which I objected to. I than texted Amy to tell her I would be coming in but she responded that I couldn't keep the appointment because she also has a sick policy (which means she can refuse service to you but still charge you) and because she scheduled someone else in my time slot. So, I again asked that she refund my money, since she suffered no losses either in time or money - but she refuses and merely states her policy has no exceptions! What the heck – what a way to double dip, charge cancellation fees and then schedule someone else for that time slot. Avoid Amy and this salon - there are plenty of other good places in this area. Not worth the hassle.
The L.A.B. OC replied:
Our cancelation policy stands in place to provide protection for us and our clients. The L.A.B OC’s business policy in regards to appointment cancelations is that there is a NO CHARGE for appointments that are canceled/rescheduled at least 24 HRS PRIOR to their booked appointment time. Which is why we also send a courtesy reminder text and email 2 days prior to your appointment providing a link to reschedule, cancel, and or make changes to your appointment services. Upon finalizing your appointment, you are asked to check the box that you have read and agreed to the cancellation policy before booking the appointment which you did. I understand you are upset and are not feeling well, but please understand with you being sick, working on you can potentially harm you as well as your artist and effect the outcome of your results. Sometimes we aren’t fortunate to find someone to fill the open appointment in such a short notice. It doesn’t feel good to charge a client who didn’t have the opportunity to receive a service and feel it’s only fair to charge 50% of the service booked rather than 100% because we do understand unfortunate circumstances arise unexpectedly. We have a late cancelation/reschedule fee due to the fact that we are blocking out our time specifically to cater a custom service focused just on you, for you. When we have a no show, there is no revenue, and there is a lost in productivity that could have been applied to another client. This policy applies to everyone in any situation thus stating no exceptions.

This review is so long overdue. Amy has been doing my eyebrows (shape & tint) for 2 years now and she is so amazing at what she does! I used to hate my super blonde brows, but now because of Amy my brows are my favorite feature! She uses great products and her studio is always clean and relaxing. I always look forward to my next appointment to catch up in conversation and obviously for some fresh looking eyebrows! No better place to go to in OC or SD!

Amy is amazing! I have been consistently going to her for eye lash extensions. The first time I tried eyelash extensions was not with Amy and I did not have the best experience. After that I was VERY picky with who would work on my lashes next. I found Amy via yelp and I am so glad I did. She is very detailed and does great work! The whole process is so relaxing and painless that at my first appointment I fell asleep! She has a quick and easy system where you can book appointments online. I highly suggest The LAB_OC, you will not regret it!

Amy is the BEST! I only get my eyebrows done by her. She takes her time and makes your eyebrows look the absolute best. At my next appointment, I will be getting an eyelash lift as well as my eyebrows shaped! Trust me, you will not be disappointed when coming to Amy. I have been getting my eyebrows waxed for 10+ years and I have never been more impressed! I have also never received so many compliments on my eyebrows before but I get all the complements after seeing Amy! Thanks Amy for continuing to make my eyebrows look flawless!

Amy is awesome, I'm so glad I found her. Her place is clean, bright and airy, and she is very warm and bubbly. I use her super easy and convenient online booking system to book my lash lifts with her. She askes exactly what I want and gives me different options. The entire appointment takes 45 minutes, I am always super relaxed throughout and we have good chats too! I love my lashes, this is exactly what I want and what I am used to getting done back home in Scotland. I will definitely keep going back to her for my lashes!

First off, Amy is the sweetest person ever and I will only trust her with my brows and lashes. I have really really short brows, so whenever I would go get them waxed or threaded, there was never any shape to them. I started going to Amy since November 2014, and I have to say, getting my eyebrows waxed never felt so painless and so relaxing LOL. After my initial brow shaping session, I was so pleased with my brows I literally was smiling ear to ear. For the first time in my life, I had shape and felt so much more confident!! I loved how Amy answered all my questions regarding shaping, filling, maintenance (which I was horrible at), and she truly taught me how to care for my brows. Next day at work, I was getting confidence left and right. It really made me feel good about myself. Now, almost two years later, I see Amy every month for both brows and lashes. I've brought in both my sister in law and cousin, and they love her work. Everyday I do my makeup, my brows are now my #1 favorite thing to look at 😊

Amy is absolutely amazing!! My eyebrows always look amazing. She even showed me the error of my way - I use to always use a powder to fill my brows in but she has me hooked on using a pencil - my eyebrows look very natural but definitely stand out.

I used to be an eyelash_ curler and eyebrow pencil kinda girl-- until I met this cool chick, Amy! She introduced me to a whole new world and cut my morning routine time by 15 minutes. Any extra time I get to sleep is time well spent in my opinion! I loved getting my eyelashes permed and my eyebrows tinted!! It's the best thing ever! You just put on a few coats of mascara and you're set!! Thanks so much for introducing me to such cool esthetic options! You are now my forever eyelash perm/ eyebrow tint girl!

I recently got a lash perm done by Amy, and I'm in love! I've gotten lash extensions before, and although I absolutely love the look, I've decided it was something I could not keep up with. I wanted to try something new that would help my lashes pop! Amy recommended that I try a lash perm. The service took about 45 minutes and is very relaxing. She is truly skilled with her hands and made me feel comfortable throughout the process. I could see my lashes were curled right after the process. You can't apply mascara for 24 hours after you get the perm, but once I applied a coat of mascara the next day, my lashes looked awesome! I was always lazy or would forget to use a curler, so now I won't have to! I'm told the curl will stay in for about a month. Loving it so far!
