Want natural-looking, enhanced eyelashes? Then a lash lift is perfect for you.
This semi-permanent and low maintenance treatment gives the appearance of curled lashes without the use of an eyelash curler.
Forget those tedious mornings of trying to get your eyelashes to cooperate! Use that extra time in the morning to worry about the more important things 😉
How does it work?
First, using a gentle adhesive, we bond the eyelashes to a silicone rod.
Second, we use a special perming solution that softens the bonds of your hair to manipulate the shape of your eyelashes to the curl of the rod. Depending on your hair type, the solution sets for anywhere between 5 to 10 minutes.
Next, a neutralizing solution is applied to your eyelashes to regain the bond in the hair follicle and set the shape. This can be likened to a conditioner for the hair.
The entire process takes about an hour depending on the set times of each solution and your eyes must remain closed for the duration of the service. But, you’ll fall in love with the final result!
How long will it last?
The lash lift lasts anywhere from 6-8 weeks, depending on hair type and after-care. This eyelash service is the perfect treatment for those who don’t have time to come more frequently.
The lift may fade quicker if you use oil-based products on your eyes or frequently rub your eyes.
Additionally, this process may not work on clients taking birth control, other hormonal medications, or those who are currently using an eyelash growth serum.
If you’d like to try a lash lift then we recommend making your appointment for at least two weeks after you’ve stopped the use of a growth serum.
It is also extremely important to advise your technician about any allergies and medications before your appointment.
Will I notice a difference?
The answer to this question depends on what your existing eyelashes already look like. If you naturally have shorter or sparse eyelashes, then you may not notice a dramatic difference with a lash lift. Those with long or straight eyelashes notice the biggest outcome.
We also recommend a Lash Tint, especially for clients with fair-colored eyelashes. The Lash Tint can be performed during your Lash Lift appointment. Results of the semi-permanent tint typically last 2-4 weeks.
If you are looking for added volume or length, then we suggest eyelash extensions.
My eyelashes are already dark, can I skip the tint?
Of course, you can skip it, however, people with darker lashes can also benefit from the tint.
Sometimes even if you have darker lashes, the tips of your natural lashes fade into a lighter color. By adding a lash tint to the lash lifting service, it can give you the illusion of longer natural lashes.
I’ve heard it doesn’t work for everyone?
If you choose to get a lash lift and we immediately feel that your lashes didn’t lift properly, DO NOT WORRY. This can happen due to certain medications and/or hormonal imbalances. If this happens, we will reschedule you for one week after the original appointment and lift your lashes again, which will take half of the original processing times.
Can I wear mascara or eye makeup with the lash lift?
The answer is YES! Unlike lash extensions (which we recommend no mascara at all), you can wear mascara and go about your normal makeup routine.
As stated before, try to avoid oil-based products to lengthen the life of the lash lift. While using an oil-based mascara won’t ruin your lash lift, using water-based products will lengthen the life of your lift.
I’m pregnant! Is it still safe?
This service does not have any risks associated with the health of the mother or the baby.
However, the results of the lash lift may vary during pregnancy. Why? Hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy, especially during the first trimester, may cause the hair to behave differently than normal.
Sometimes, the eyelash hair doesn’t take to the perming solution which would then compromise the final result.
For some, hormone levels during breastfeeding may also cause eyelash fallout.
