What Is A Lash Lift?

We love lash lifts at The Little Parlour and this is mainly because no matter how much mascara you layer on sometimes your lashes just need that little boost.  

We know that lash extensions and false eye lashes are always an option for our clients however, there is much more maintenance required with these and a lash lift can last four to six weeks depending on how quickly your eyelashes grow. So what’s involved?

What is a lash lift? 

A lash lift is when your eyelash is curled from the base to the top so that you can see the full length of your lashes. All lashes have a natural shape to them but a lash lift alters this shape via a tiny curling rod and a lifting solution. 
At The Little Parlour, this treatment involves a consultation with one of our beauty therapists to determine what style you are looking to achieve. Our therapist will then choose a suitable rod size to shape your lashes. 
The process begins with your eye area being cleansed and a silicone rod placed onto the eyelid. The natural lashes are then curled over and attached to the rod with an adhesive to set the eyelashes. A lifting lotion is then applied to allow the lashes to shape around the curling rod, followed by a setting lotion that sets the lash shape. 
The appointment takes approximately 45-60 minutes. We also require a patch test 48 hours before your appointment to ensure you don’t have a reaction to the solutions we use.

how long does a lash lift last? 

Depending on how quickly your eyelashes grow, a lash lift can last four to six weeks. We advise that you avoid mascara for 48 hours after your treatment and leave lashes untouched for a full day. To ensure the lift sets into shape, we also advise no makeup or water should come in contact with your lashes for 24 hours. 

We encourage all our lash lift clients to invest in a lash oil, post treatment to keep their lashes nourished and conditioned. 

do i need long eyelashes for this to work? 

Eyelashes can be long or short, but must be at least 4mm in length for a lash lift to really work well. Sometimes a lash tint at the same time can also give your eyelashes an extra lift and darken your natural lashes.
