What Is An Eyelash Lift?
When you get an eyelash lift, you're paying for a lash tech to curl your lashes. The tech will curl your lashes from the base of your lash, all the way to the tip. Investing in this service will make the entirety of your lash visible, instead of just the tip of your lashes.
Everyone's eyelashes have a natural shape. That's why some lash types are able to successfully use a lash curling tool and see a difference, while others aren't. However, with an eyelash lift, the natural shape of the eyelashes is altered.
During an eyelash lift, a small curling rod is used to lift the lashes. Then, the lashes are set with a lifting solution that keeps your lashes in place. While this process happens, your eyes stay closed the entire time.
However, since there are chemicals involved in this process, it's important to always use a licensed professional that has experience. This way, you're able to ensure you're getting the results you paid for.
How Much Does a Lash Lift Cost?
Depending on your lash tech and your location, you can expect to spend anywhere from $110 to $200. To ensure that you're really getting your money's worth out of your lash lift, make sure that you take care of your lashes. This will help the lash lift to last longer.
Lash lifts aren't nearly as expensive as eyelash extensions, which are another popular lash service. This is because lash lifts aren't as high-maintenance as extensions are. So, you'll save money in the long run by getting lash lifts because you won't have to pay to have your lashes removed or replaced.
Also, you can tip your lash technician after you've finished your session. How much you tip your tech is completely dependent upon you. But, don't forget to include this in the total cost of your session.
What Comes With a Lash Lift?
Typically, you can expect your lash lift to last around one hour. However, there are several things that are normally included with your lash lift.
If this is your first time getting a lash lift, a patch test will likely be used. It's to ensure that you won't have an allergic reaction to any of the products that are used during the lash lift.
Sometimes, a lash lift will come with a tint. A tint will add dye to your lashes to make them appear darker than they naturally are. However, there are some salons that'll charge extra for the tint, while others include it with the price of the lash lift.
Lash Lift vs Lash Extensions
Are you trying to figure out the difference between a lash lift vs a lash extension? A lash extension takes strips of lashes and glues them down onto your natural lash.
If you're looking to achieve a falsie look and have it last several weeks, you'll want to opt for a lash extension. Lash lifts look natural and don't glue any strips down onto your lashes. Also, last lifts last longer.
So, if you're looking to have a natural-looking lash too that just extends your natural lashes, you should look into lash lifts.
How Long Does a Lash Lift Last?
You expect your lash lift to last up to twelve weeks, which is when your growing lashes will completely replace the set that you've paid to be treated. The length of time it takes for your lash lift to long really all depends on how quickly your natural lashes are growing.
How Do You Take Care of Your Lashes After a Lift?
To ensure that you're getting your money's worth out of your lash lift, it's important for you to take care of your lashes properly.
First, you'll want to make sure that you avoid using any mascara or water during the first 24 hours after you've gotten your treatment done. Also, make sure you're avoiding using any eye creams, extensions, lash serums, or using false lashes for up to 24 hours after your treatment.
After you've waited the 24 hour period after your treatment, you'll still need to practice proper care to ensure your lift lasts. Make sure to avoid using any products on your face that contain oil, as this can damage your lip tint.
In addition, avoid sleeping on your sides when you can. If possible, sleep on your back, as it'll ensure that your lash lift doesn't get bent.
