Itching for beautiful, long lashes but don’t want to deal with false lashes or spend the money on eyelash extensions? You’re in luck! Lash lifts are becoming increasingly popular and are a service we recently started offering at Bella Salon and Spa with our Esthetician, Kaylie Hayes.
What exactly is a lash lift?
Think of a lash lift as a perm for your lashes. The main goal of a lash lift is to enhance your natural lashes, making them appear longer and fuller, by shaping them into the perfect curl.
How does it work?
Before getting started, the area around the eye must be cleaned to remove any makeup and oil. Your technician will then apply a silicone mold onto the eyelid using a non-toxic glue to curl the lashes over the mold. Once the lashes are adhered to the mold, the lashes are separated before the perm solution is applied to the root and middle of the lash and sits for 10 to 15 minutes. The solution is then wiped off and a setting solution is applied to re-harden the lashes so they stay in place.
To finish the lit, your technician will apply a conditioning oil to hydrate the lashes.
How long does a lash lift last?
A lash lift will last anywhere between six and eight weeks, as it reflects the natural lash growth cycle. You are able to wear mascara and rub your eyes with a lash lift, whereas these are things you would want to avoid with eyelash extensions.
How much does a lash lift cost?
At Bella Salon and Spa, we offer lash lifts and tints for $85.
