A Lash Lift curls your natural lashes using different sizes of silicone pads and each lash is “lifted” individually, creating a perfect curl for your lash length. With lifted lashes, your eyes immediately open up and lashes appear fuller and longer. Treatment is about an hour with results lasting 6-8 weeks. Make your eyes pop even more with a lash tint, which can be done at the same time.
While you might have heard about the magical powers of lash extensions, lash lifts are just as transformative and a little less hyped about. They instantly make your lashes look so much longer and fuller, plus they’re cheaper and require a lot less maintenance than extensions.
The full lash appointment usually takes around an hour, and if you choose to get a tint, it’ll take another fifteen minutes, which isn’t bad considering lash extensions usually take around two hours. Neither of the treatments hurt, but they can be slightly uncomfortable, and you’ll have to keep your eyes shut for the procedure.
Customization: Similar to lash extensions, you can customize your lash lift curl in order to suit your eye shape or just your lash preference. You can usually choose between three shield size options, and your lash technician will help you choose the best fit depending on your hair length and eye-shape. You can also choose to fan your lashes outwards or lift them straight up as high as possible.
First, your lash technician will cleanse your lashes, and then separate your lower and upper lashes with a silicone shield. Once the shield is firmly glued onto your eyelid, she will apply another layer of glue to the top of the shield, which will then hold your lashes in place. Next, she will apply a solution that effectively perms your lashes; the solution softens your lashes so that they are easily moldable. This is normally then left on for eight to twelve minutes depending on how well your hair typically holds: So if you have straight hair that always drops a curl, the perm would be left on for the full 12 minutes. You can also choose to get your lashes tinted at this point. Afterward, a setting solution is applied to hold the curl, and the shields are removed.
Pre-Appointment prep: Show up to your appointment showered and makeup free. You should also avoid waterproof mascara a week before your appointment, as it leaves a film on your natural lashes making it harder for the lash technician to style them.
Post-Appointment care: For 24-hours after your lash lift or extensions, you need to avoid makeup, getting your lashes wet or any steamy environments. For lash lifts, that’s pretty much it; you can treat them as you usually would, and that also means you can wear mascara. You’re also advised to condition the lashes using coconut oil or a facial oil at night. With Lash extensions, on the other hand, take a lot of TLC to keep them looking good. There’s a whole list of dos and don’ts: you can’t rub your eyes, get them wet, or sleep on your face. You’re not even supposed to use any oil-based products, and when it comes to taking your makeup off, you have to be super careful not to rub your eyes. This is why a Lash Lift can be so much more hassle-free!
- Avoid washing and putting mascara on eyelashes for 24 hours (48 for keratin)
- Avoid aggressively rubbing your eyes
- Gently remove mascara and eye makeup
- Brush them daily when damp to detangle
- Use an oil (coconut or castor) or EyEnvy (lash growth serum) on the lashes to ensure they’re healthy and hydrated
WHAT TO EXPECT AS YOUR LASHES GROW OUT:
A few weeks after your lift, you will notice new lashes growing in while some curled lashes will fall out; this is your lashes going through their growth cycle. Some clients’ lashes may have a slight kink to them and can find applying mascara to be more troubling as mascara can emphasize the kink.
WHAT TO DO IF YOUR LASHES HAVE A KINK:
We offer a Lash Lift Touchup service that will de-kink those lashes, thereby allowing you to enjoy your curl for a few more weeks! This service is only offered on a case-by-case basis as everyone’s lashes are different. Your lashes will be processed for only a minute or two to relax the kinks; we will not be applying the silicone pads or resetting the lashes — that would be considered a full lift.
YOU CAN ONLY HAVE A LASH LIFT TOUCHUP IF:
- You’ve had either a regular or a Keratin Lash Lift by us.
- You had your Lift done no more than 4 weeks ago.
- You are still happy with your curl, but need to only de-kink the middle or the tips of your lashes.
