We all love long, thick lashes but it can be difficult to keep up with daily lash maintenance when life is busy. That’s where lash lifts come in: A super quick, low-maintenance treatment that requires no touch-ups (yay!).
It’s also a great option for clients who want to go for an all-natural look. It gives their lashes an instant boost of volume, which can help them feel more confident and look bright and fresh in the morning.
They’re designed for all types of lashes, and can even be a good option for clients who have super short or thin lashes as it can make them appear longer and fuller.
The procedure is fairly straightforward: First, your therapist will cleanse your eye area to remove any makeup residue. Then, a silicone pad is placed on your eyelids that helps to give your natural lashes a better curl, says Tran.
Once the lashes are curled, the technician will use an adhesive solution to secure them in place. After that, the lashes will be set using another lotion to ensure they’re properly shaped.
A lash tint is often added as a finishing touch, which will help clients achieve a more dramatic effect.
It’s important to note that lash lifts should only be done by a certified technician, says Mikelle Brown of Face Foundrie. It’s also a good idea to get a patch test 48 hours before your appointment to ensure you don’t have any allergic reactions to the chemicals used.
