How to use lash in a sentence?

  1. Yuval Steinitz:

    We hear this nonsense by Zarif, that Israel would set off terrorist attacks against the United States - this really is total nonsense, but on the other hand it is a warning sign - a warning sign that Iran is taking aim at Israel, is looking for excuses to lash out at Israel, and therefore we need to have our finger on the pulse and be at the highest state of alert.

  3. Kristen Lovell:

    Passability is definitely a privilege, as you're transitioning, you're prone to have increased lash outs from people because your appearance isn't appealing to them. People always want to fight what they don't understand. It puts people who are starting to transition in danger.

    Often we get asked if having lash extensions applied will hurt, and that's also a common misperception as the application process is so comfortable that the majority of our guests fall asleep and take what we like to call a lash nap, you can shower, swim, exercise and sweat and they will stay intact. It's a common misconception that they are more temporary or that swimming and contact with water is prohibited.

  5. Heather Elrod:

    Lash extensions are a more recent trend which came to us from Asia about 20 years ago.
