Everyone craves longer, fuller lashes. That’s why the world took immediate notice in 2018, when beauty gurus Lisa Hyde and Stephanie Lange showed off stunning images of lash lifts on their Instagrams. Lash lifts have been a hot beauty trend ever since, and it’s easy to see why. It’s a safe and comfortable treatment that instantly lifts drooping lashes, separates them, and provides them with extra definition- no extensions required! At ARDOUR Brows & Lashes, we get so many questions about how lash lifts work, who can get one, and whether they are compatible with other procedures, such as tinting, that we’ve dedicated an entire blog to the answers.
What is a lash lift?
A lash lift is a simple and comfortable beauty process with results that are literally eye-opening. After confirming how much lift you would like and whether you want your lashes fanned out, your artist uses a tiny curling rod and gentle lifting solution to boost your lashes at the base and make them appear longer, fuller, and more defined. With proper care, your lash lift will last an average of 8 to 10 weeks.
Who can get a lash lift?
Practically everyone! Your brow and lash artist will examine the condition of your lashes before recommending an appropriate amount of curl and lift, but nearly everyone you know can walk into our salon with sparse, diminutive lashes and come out with lush yet natural-looking results that let you retire the mascara (until your next treatment!).
Can lash lifts damage your lashes?
Lash lifts use a keratin solution to create the volume you want. When administered by an experienced artist, there is no damage to your lashes, provided that you follow the aftercare instructions provided and let six to eight weeks pass between treatments.
Are lash lifts painful?
Our clients report that getting a lash lift is a very relaxing experience, with practically no discomfort. Before applying the lifting solution, your lash artist will gently position two silicone pads over your lower lashes so the solution doesn’t reach them, but it only takes a few seconds. After that, the rest of the treatment has been said to be so soothing that clients have been tempted to fall asleep!
Do lash lifts and lash colour go well together?
Many of our clients love the dramatic combination of lush curl and rich colour, and the good news is that with a lash lift, you can have both! At ARDOUR Brows & Lashes, we frequently pair our lash lifting and tinting services to deliver the ultimate wow factor. You’ll look bright-eyed and fabulous whether you’re at home, at work, or on the town. When you get a lash lift, your natural lashes receive a dramatic boost: no extensions required! If your mornings are busy and your social calendar is full of last-minute get-togethers, ARDOUR Brows & Lashes will deliver results that saves you time and energy during your daily beauty routine without compromising on how amazing you look.
