Lash Lifts are becoming increasingly popular with women especially now we are in the prime season of Events, Special Occasions and Weddings. If you have always wanted lashes that give the Wow factor but have not been keen on having extensions or piling layers upon layers of mascara on than a Lash Lift could be for you.
A Lash Lift is a treatment that is incredibly relaxing and gives those straight lashes a natural curl.
Here are my top Lash Lift Benefits:
A treatment which enhances your natural lashes without the need for ongoing maintenance.
No need to reach for those eyelash curlers.
Makes your morning routine quicker.
There is no need to wear mascara for a few weeks as the treatment includes a lash tint which darkens the lashes.
The lashes look thicker, fuller and longer.
The eyes will appear more open and youthful.
They are a great alternative to Eyelash Extensions which can be time consuming to have done and require infills.
Minimal aftercare required.
The curl lasts around 6 weeks sometimes 8 depending on the health of your lashes and how they take to the treatment.
A Lash Lift is perfect for Special Occasions, Weddings / Honeymoons or as a regular treat every 3 months.
If you are a hayfever sufferer and find your eyes stream or itch like crazy this is perfect for days where you don't want to wear mascara.
After the treatment you will definitely say "Wow" but just wait until the next day when they look even better!
The treatment works to enhance the thickness and length of your natural lashes making them appear more defined and leaving your eyes looking bigger, refreshed and more youthful.
A Lash Lift is a gentle alternative to lash extensions that will not damage your natural lashes, there is no maintenance involved once the lashes are curled they are curled for around 6 - 8 weeks before they require another treatment.
Step By Step Treatment Explained
The treatment itself is very straightforward initially we will discuss the type of curl intensity you desire which can range from a relaxed curl to a full on intense curl which is my most requested look.
Firstly the eye area is prepped with a gentle cleanse removing any oils and mascara you may already have one, a silicone shield is then gently glued to your eyelids with your eyes closed. The lashes are then delicately glued onto the shield - trust me it is not as scary as it sounds!
Once the lashes are glued in place (which you will barely notice) a perming lotion is applied for around 10 - 15 minutes depending on the health of your lashes.
The tint itself is left on the lashes for 5 - 10 minutes again depending on the health of your lashes and is then removed. The lashes are combed through and a nourishing conditioning lotion is applied.
The treatment from start to finish is around an hour give or take 5 - 10 minutes depending how long the perming and setting lotions have been applied for.
The first 24 hours after the treatment is crucial as the lashes will still be setting.
You will need to avoid wearing mascara, going swimming, applying water directly to the eyes, resist going for a sauna or into a steam room
Most of my clients wake up the next day with the curl being even more intense than it was straight after the treatment which is great to hear. The beauty of having lashes that stay curled on their own means you will need far less mascara than normal to make your eyes pop.
You will notice as it gets more to the 6 - 8 week mark the lashes will start to relax which is when you want to start thinking about getting booked back in again. If you have any lashes fall out this is part of the lash cycle which we all experience and is absolutely normal.
