The Life-Changing Lash Lift – All You Need to Know!

Surely by now, you would have heard someone raving about how a lash lift has changed their life. If not, then they’re just keeping the secret to themselves! We reckon it’s about time everyone heard about the glorious wonder that is the lash lift and had a chance to experience the goodness for themselves.

In this article, we’ll explain to the uninitiated what a lash lift is, how it works, and what makes it different from your classic eyelash extensions.

What is a lash lift?

OK, first thing’s first. What on earth is a lash lift? Is it like a facelift but for your lashes? Well, kind of, considering it provides a total drop-dead-gorgeous transformation. A lash lift is basically like a perm for your eyelashes. It’s what you’ve been trying to do with your eyelash curlers for years but never quite get right.

A lash lift gives that perfect upwards curl, defining your eyes with a dramatic curved shape. It’s like opening the blinds and letting the light shine in, but for your eyes. Quite frankly, a lash lift is a life-changer.

How does a lash lift work?

Much like a perm, a lash lift uses a chemical solution to give your eyelashes a natural curly bounce. Don’t worry, this solution is completely safe for use around the eyes, and the procedure includes a handy little silicone shield to keep your peepers protected.

The chemical solution (or perming solution) softens your lashes and the bonding of your hair, making it more malleable and easy to change its shape. The time spent with the solution on your lashes will depend on how straight, and resistant your hair is – if you have the kind of straight hair that absolutely refuses to be curled, you might need it on for longer than someone who’s hair quickly changes shape.

After that, a setting solution is applied to keep your lashes holding onto that new curly shape. It hardens your hair and restructures its bonds, locking in that gorgeous eyelash curl you’ve been trying to perfect forever. Then, of course, there’ll be the natural replenishment of moisture so that you can walk out with soft, silky lashes.

Why choose a lash lift over extensions?

You might be wondering what sets a lash lift apart from eyelash extensions, and for a good reason! Each treatment has its pros and cons, and it all depends on what you’re looking you’re going for, how long you’d like it to last, and what is most suitable for your natural lashes.

All-natural lashes – With a lash lift, it’s your own natural lashes that are lifted and curled. With eyelash extensions, false eyelashes are added over the top of your natural lashes.
You can use eye-makeup – With eyelash extensions you’re advised to avoid using mascara and oil-based eyeliners while you have them in. Lash lifts, after the first 24 hours, give you the freedom of using any eye makeup you please.
Less maintenance – A lash lift can last up to 8-12 weeks, while eyelash extensions need to be refilled every 2-3 weeks to keep your lashes looking full and beautiful.

But my eyelashes suck!

Nobody’s eyelashes suck. They’re just straighter, hiding away, refusing to hold onto that curl you so desperately try to create. All you need is a little love and attention from an experienced therapist and you’ll be walking out with bouncy, curly, beautiful lashes.
