A lash lift curls your natural lashes from base to tip so that you can see the full length. All lashes have a natural shape to them, so this process alters that shape via a tiny curling rod and a lifting solution. (It’s not as scary as it sounds, as your eyes are closed and you won’t feel a thing, a good chance for a snooze), bonus!
What is Getting a Lash Lift Like?
Every treatment begins with a consultation to determine what kind of lash style you are looking to achieve. Based on your answers, your therapist will then pick a suitable curling rod size to shape the lashes.
Then, the eye area will be cleansed and a silicone rod is placed onto the eyelids. The natural lashes are then curled over and attached to the rod with a very gentle adhesive to set the lashes. Once the everything is positioned correctly, a lifting lotion is applied to allow the lashes to mold around the curling rod, followed by a setting lotion that sets the lash shape.
Expect the process to take around 45 minutes to an hour.
***A patch test is required 48 hours before your appointment to ensure you don’t have a reaction to the solutions used.
How Long Does a Lash Lift Last?
The results typically last four weeks, depending on how quickly your eyelashes grow. You should avoid mascara for 48 hours after the treatment, and leave lashes untouched for a full day. No makeup, or water should come in contact with your lashes for 24 hours to ensure the lift correctly sets into shape. Then, you can fully enjoy the treatment’s results.
How Much Does a Lash Lift Cost?
Treatment usually costs £45 for a standard lift, you can also add a tint for an extra £15.
Do Lash Lifts Work on Any Lash Length and Colour?
Lashes can be long or short, but must be at least a 4mm to get the full benefit, we also recommend getting a lash tint along with a lift. It will lift and darken your natural lashes and create a balanced effortless look for the client who wants a natural ‘woke up like this’ appearance.
