Eyelash lifting is proving to be one of the fastest growing beauty treatments around the world. Over the past few years, it has grown to be approximately 50% of my lash studio business – WOW! But what exactly is eyelash lifting? How does it work? And what are the benefits. Read on and I’ll tell you everything you need to know!!
Historically, to achieve an upturned look, lash curlers and mascara were used. The first eyelash curler was invented by the Kurlash company. An early alternative method for curling hair that was suitable for use on people was invented in 1905 by German hairdresser Charles Nessler. Eyelash perming developed as a widely available solution sometime after 2000.
So how does it work? During the treatment, the natural lashes are carefully adhered to a silicone pad with sugar adhesive. Gently and carefully the lifting lotion is applied to the lashes, allowing the hair to be ‘lifted’ into a new position. A short processing time is required before the lifting lotion is removed and replaced with a setting lotion which stays on the lashes for the same processing time. The final step is to rehydrate those beautiful lashes with a nourishing oil.
The end results? Luscious, longer looking, curled lashes that will last the duration of your natural lash cycle, typically 6-8 weeks.
We know what you’re thinking. What’s the catch? Other than only having to visit your local beauty salon every 6-12 weeks, still being able to wear mascara, swim and live your life as normal? There are NONE!
Top 6 Benefits:
1. Goodbye, Lash Curling Tools
If you’ve been using a lash curler for years, it’s time to toss it out! A lash lift will give you that beautiful curl without the hassle of using an uncomfortable tool—no more pulling out your own lashes!
2. Enhances your “Natural Eyelash”
Lash Lifts work with your own natural lashes turning them from wow to WOW!! Eyelash Lifting truly does it all. When your lashes are in their natural state they might point straight out or even downward facing, making their dimension appear stubby and short. When you have a lash lift your lashes have curl and lift which gives the appearance of longer and even fuller lashes.
3. Longer Lasting
Awesome news: A lash tint lasts MUCH longer than a quick curl from a tool or swipe of mascara each day. We’re talking 6 to 8 weeks longer! Get ready to enjoy a simplified beauty routine, plus a new, refreshed look.
4. Great Alternative to Lash Extensions
If you’ve had a reaction to Eyelash Extensions or couldn’t maintain the upkeep that extensions require, then eyelash lifting could be for you.
5. Low Maintenance + Minimal Aftercare
Other Bare Envy services require a bit of TLC when it comes to maintenance, but with a lash lift the only maintenance is getting a fresh lift every 6-8 weeks, that’s it!
6. Highly Addictive
Not only will you get the stunning curl you’ve been dreaming about, but you can also scream from the rooftops, “YES, they are my natural lashes!”
