A Lash lift is a procedure where you lift your own eyelashes and then set them with a perming solution from the root. This gives your lashes a longer, thicker, fuller look from the front as it makes your eyelashes more visible from that angle. The eyelash lift lasts around 4-6 weeks before your natural lashes grow out and fall out as normal. This is ideal for swimmers or people who don’t want eyelash extensions or wear mascara daily.
Test patch needed.
Brands available – All these brands use the same technique pretty much just a different company name. Some people include tint. The current guidance is that it’s fine to tint and perm on the same appointment.
LVL lash lift
Shields and rods –
Your lashes are lifted using a plastic shield placed and secured on your eyelid. The shields I personally stock are Large, extra large, medium, small and extra small. Small giving the most lift and dramatic look. Your natural lashes are secured onto the shield and then set using perming and setting solutions. Just like you would perm the hair on your head. There are also rods available, to curl your lashes around, which give a curved appearance. However it’s a lot more modern to have a eyelash lift now.
- Avoid mascara for 8 hours
- Avoid steam or hot shower for 24 hours (relaxes perm and could drop)
- Don’t rub eyes
- Use nourishing lotion on your lashes after perm like caster oil.
- Rebook for 4-6 weeks for your next eyelash lift.
