Eye Studio Tokyo’s salon interior is nicely decorated, with mainly pink and white color theme; comfortable chairs for resting while you wait for your appointment. There are also magazines for you to browse while waiting. This Eye Studio Tokyo salon has already been featured in several Japanese magazines!
I would recommend that you plan early when trying to get an appointment! The place is popular. Many Japanese customers visit the store, judging by whom I met on my way in and out on my appointment day.
Now back to the question, what type/style of eyelash extensions should I do? I was very happy to note that the type of lashes and styles offered was the same as what I saw in Japan.
Basically you make your selection of Curl, Thickness and Design: (the info below is taken from their brochure)

What I did
I decided on D-curl (the most curvy), 0.15mm (medium thickness), Natural design, and I had 100 nos (50 for each eye) on my first visit and 120 nos for my second visit :D
If you prefer to go out with a bang, then you can try the Glamorous design which gives you maximum volume.
I took photographs of the process, click on the pictures below for a larger view.
I was very lucky that I got my service from the salon’s director, Nakamura san. But don’t worry, they promise that their staff are all well trained and experience Japanese that will give you the Japanese type of eyelash extensions!
I was however a little worried about how she is going to manage my ‘leftover’ lashes. But Nakamura san fixed it perfectly, she managed to remove some of the lashes and there was no traces of them.
Update* I was served by another staff the second visit and the experience was still wonderful!
There is now a promotion where you can purchase 2 visits coupon for $150 (1 time is $75) for any amount of lashes. This is what I bought!
If you are choosing 120 numbers of lashes (60 per eye), that translates to $30 savings in total!
Info above is updated as of 20 Nov 2013, please check with store on their up-to-date promotional offers
UPDATE (20 Jan 2014)
I visited their store for my second appointment this month (just in time for CNY). This time I did 120pcs (60 per eye) and the effect was great! Haha getting greedier. Maybe I will try the lower lashes too the next round. :P
Service quality is still thumbs up as before!
Recommendation is once again to book in advance as their appointment is pretty packed.
