What exactly is a lash lift?
It’s like perming your lashes into a lifted, curled state. But unlike the harsh formulas that were once used to perm the hair on our heads, the treatment for lash lifts is gentler.
How does it all work?
Before starting the actual process the eye area and lashes should be free of makeup and oil. A silicone mold or shield is applied onto the eyelid using a non-toxic glue. With the silicone mold on the eyelid, we then curl the lashes using the glue over the mold, which is curved upward and outward to create a curl. Once the lashes are adhered to the shield and separated, that will reveal the final outcome. Once each and every lash is applied onto the mold, we separate them individually, so you get a nice curl on the lashes. The perm solution is a chemical solution that sits on the root of the eyelashes, between the root and middle of the lash, and it would sit ― depending on the client ― from 10 to 15 minutes.
How long does a lash lift last?
Typically, a lash lift will last six to eight weeks, about the same amount of time as the lash growth cycle.
