Eyelash 101: Tint, Extensions & Lifts

From extensions, to tinting and lifts, the number of services exclusively for your lashes can be overwhelming. And choosing the right one(s) for you can be challenging. Read on to learn the difference between services and what you can expect from each.

LASH EXTENSIONS

Eyelash extensions work much the same way as hair extensions. We’ll add the extensions one by one attaching them via an adhesive to your natural lashes. Not only will your lashes be thicker and longer, they’ll also be stronger. The extensions can last up to eight weeks, but to maintain a proper definition, we recommend touch-ups every four weeks.

LASH LIFTS

This service will have you ditching the mascara sooner rather than later. It’s our newest and most popular service that “lifts” your natural lashes. So how’s it work? We’ll use silicone pads to apply a solution to each individual lash. The solution helps to semi-permanently “lift” the lashes creating a fuller, darker and more defined look. The process is pretty simple, it takes about an hour, and the results are ahhh-mazing (if we do say so ourselves). Not only that, with proper care, they can last anywhere from 8-12 weeks.

LASH TINT

Bold, intense eyes are in, but if you weren’t born with jet-black lashes we can help. Lash tinting darkens your eyelashes to accentuate your natural color. We’ll apply color to both upper and lower lashes and you’ll walk away with more defined eyelashes that’ll keep their new hue for up to six weeks (the color will slowly fade as your lash life cycle naturally progresses).

AFTER-CARE IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT

While we’ll talk through after-care in detail before you leave the salon, a few things are worth mentioning here. First, try to avoid getting your lashes wet for 24-48 hours. This will help your lashes to set, keeping them darker, thicker and more defined—for longer.

Next, after the initial “drying” period has passed, remember to clean your lashes daily, if possible. Particles in the air can leave bacteria, which in turn can lead to infection. If your service included a glue of some sort, dirty lashes can also loosen the bond—which would have you coming in for a touch-up sooner rather than later.
