What does a lash lift do?
In recent times people are turning to longer-lasting treatments like extensions and lash lifts. Eyelash Extensions can make lashes appear fuller without the need for mascara, and they can come in a range of materials, but lash lifts are essentially a perm for your natural lashes. The treatment typically lasts six to eight weeks with proper care.
A professionally applied lash lift is designed to enhance your natural lashes at a minimal level. It will not be able to create texture, add color, contour and shape or add dimension to your eyes the way lash extensions would. The main purpose is to curl your natural lashes and you must have at least a 4 millimeter lash to be an optimal candidate for the service. A lash lift is a great alternative for those who are unable to obtain extensions due to eye sensitivities or simply not having time to maintain. That's right! Leave the eyelash curler stored away.
What to expect at a lash lift treatment
A lash lift can transform your lashes within 45 minutes to an hour. In order to give lashes a curled effect, the technician or Glaminator works from the lash base to the tip to see its full length. Depending on the desired curl, the technician uses a selection of different types of rods: The larger the rod, the softer the curl.
What about lash tints?
Lash lifts are sometimes mistaken for lash tints, but they actually do two totally separate things. Think of lash tinting as a semi-permanent dye service for your lashes. Tinting won’t add curl, length or volume to your lashes, but it will darken and intensify their color with permanent, cream-based dyes (and in some cases, a semi-permanent vegetable-based dye).
Lash tints and lash lifts are separate services, but it is highly suggested by beauty experts to get them done at the same time.
