Eyelash Extensions and Lash Lifts
What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are applied to each natural lash to enhance the length, curliness, fullness, and thickness. The customized look can range from natural to glamourous.
Level 1 - Classic - 1:1 one synthetic lash applied to one natural lash. It provides the most natural look (like mascara on steroids). 0.15 diameter in C or D curl.
Level 2 - Hybrid - mix of classic and volume for a natural and fuller look (the most popular set - perfect for professionals).
Level 3 - Volume - 3-5 extensions in a fan formation on one natural lash to create a full look (full strip lash look). 0.06-0.07 diameter in C or D curl.
Level 4 - Extreme Volume - 3-10 extensions in a fan formation for a fuller glam look (full mink strip lash look). 0.05-0.06 diameter in C or D curl.
Level 5 - Mega Volume - 10-15 extensions in a fan formation for a dense Vegas style look. 0.03 diameter in C or D curl.
What is a lash lift?
A lash lift is essentially a low maintenance lash perm where we reform the hydrogen bonds of the lashes to a curled state. The look is essentially what you would achieve with a mechanical eyelash curler and will last approximately 6 weeks. If you have light/blonde lashes, adding a lash tint to darken the lashes will make a huge impact!
What happens during a lash lift session?
Your technician will assess your lashes and ask how curled you would like the lift. The technician will put the appropriate shield size on the closed eyelid and place the lashes to the shield. Products are applied to the lashes only and does not run into the eye. The session is approximately 45min to 1hr. The shields are removed and a keratin gel is applied to condition the lashes.
Why would I do a lash lift over lash extensions?
A lash lift requires the lowest maintenace ever. They are amazing for naturally straight or downward growing lashes. Instead of coming in every 3 weeks for an eyelash extension fill, a lift doesn't require a retouch until 6 weeks later. You can rub your eyes, use any makeup and face products, go to hot yoga/saunas/tanning beds without worrying about retention. Some people will do a lash lift and tint for a break between lash extensions.
