To lift or not to lift? That is the question. The beauty business is always coming up with new ideas to help enhance our beauty needs. The latest lash trend is called a lash lift. So what is a lash lift? As a lash tech who loves her lashes to walk in before she does. I've got you covered!
Lash lifts are a keratin treatment specifically designed to lift your own natural lashes. It still gives you the lift you desire without the extra fuss mascara gives.
The entire process takes up to 45 minutes. The treatment is relaxing and painless. After having your lashes permed against a silicone rod and a serum is applied. Voila! Like magic you have longer lashes.
I would hold off on recreating Toni Braxton's Un-Break My Heart shower scene. To avoid deactivating the solution stay far away steam and getting them wet for 24 hours.
The lash lift can last from 6 to 8 weeks. Naturally, during this time your lash growth cycle kicks in and your lashes are replaced with new ones. Simply book and repeat. It's so worth it.
