A lash lift is basically a perm for your lashes; it transforms straight or stubborn eyelash hairs into perfectly curled lashes, and they remain that way for 6-8 weeks- no eyelash curler required!
After cleansing the lashes, a silicone shield gets stuck on the skin using a gentle adhesive (similar to the glue used to apply false lashes). Adhesive is applied on top of the shield as well, then lashes are combed up to take their shape. Then an eye-safe perming solution is applied, which softens the bond of your hair so that it’s moldable. After 6-12 minutes, the setting oil & solution are applied, which helps lock the curl. Then, a nourishing oil is applied to restore moisture to the lashes and to help easily remove the adhesive and silicone shield. This service is recommended to be paired with an eyelash tint, which would follow the lift.
The tint is available in a variety of colors, but clients typically prefer browns and blacks, to mimic the look of mascara, and to increase the appearance of eyelash length. Clients must remove contact lenses prior to the tint, just to be safe. The performing Esthetician will apply a protective cream such as vaseline under the eyes to avoid staining the skin with the tint. Then, a thin, curved cotton pad is placed atop this cream, and the client in instructed to close her eyes to rest her lashes on the pad. A small fan brush is then used to paint the tint onto the eyelashes, and after roughly ten minutes the tint is removed with cold water and cotton pads. The client leaves with darker, longer looking lashes (also lasting 6-8 weeks).
Both the tint and lift are offered separately, but look best when paired together. This service eliminates the need for mascara, allowing clients a shorter morning routine!
