EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LASH LIFTS!
What is a Lash Lift?
A lift is essentially a perm for your lashes, which replaces the daily curling of your lashes with an eyelash curler. A lash curler can damage your lashes over time, besides who has time for that?! The lift makes your lashes look curled and lifted, and with the optional tint enhancement you can temporarily darken your lashes so they look the same color as mascara! The lift typically lasts around 6-8 weeks depending on your lash cycle. Tint typically lasts around one month on average.
What is the Lash Lift process?
The process is simple, relatively quick and painless. Your artist will welcome you and ask you to relax on our comfortable bed. You will need to keep your eyes closed for the entire process, which lasts about 45 minutes. Many people take a nap! Your artist will apply a soft silicone rod and use a gentle adhesive to paint your lashes neatly onto the rod. A series of solutions are then applied to complete the lift. Optional tint is applied at the end of the process, and everything is removed, leaving you with lifted, curled lashes with no need for a lash curler!

How to prep for your appointment
Please arrive to your appointment with very clean lashes and eyelids. If you arrive with remnants of mascara or eyeliner, we will do our best to help you remove it but it may impact the results of the lift. You may wish to remove your contacts since your eyes will be closed and your eyelids gently manipulated.
Lash Lifts are extremely low maintenance but the first 24 hours require specific aftercare to ensure best results, similar to a perm for your hair!
What to Avoid:
For at least the first 24 hours after treatment, the following should be avoided:
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Does it hurt?
Definitely not! Sometimes the adhesive stings mildly, but that can be addressed by your artist adjusting the rods. Just be sure to let her know if you’re experiencing any discomfort!
Will it harm my lashes?
No! We strongly recommend our aftercare product, Elleeplex, to keep your lashes shiny and healthy.
Is there anything that I can use to enhance my results?
If your lashes are not naturally very long or thick, we recommend Lash Boost to help them grow. It’s a serum that is applied nightly to help your lashes grow, and we can order it for you. Let us know if you would like to purchase it.
You can also purchase Elleeplex Aftercare, which we highly recommend. It’s a clear serum that is infused with nutrients to keep your lashes super healthy and shiny. You use conditioner for your hair, especially after a hair treatment right? This is the same thing – conditioner for your lashes! It’s also very affordable and easy to use!
Will it work if I have little to no lashes, or damaged lashes?
We don’t recommend a lift if your lashes are damaged or extremely fine. This is because your lashes are unlikely to respond to treatment and your results will not be noticeable. We recommend that you first try Lash Boost to help with thickness and overall health for best results.
Can I get a Lash Lift if I have short lashes?
Absolutely! Your artist will assess your lashes and help set expectations for your results. Just know that if your lashes are short your results will be less dramatic than someone with long lashes. In rare circumstances some lashes will be too short for the rods we use, and in that case we will inform you that we cannot proceed with the service.
What is the difference between a lash lift and lash extensions?
What happens to my lashes if I don’t get another lift?
Eventually your lashes will return to their normal state, as each of your natural lashes shed. This typically takes around 6-8 weeks.
