Are you looking for a service you can offer your clients that is easy and affordable, and gives them the appearance of longer, curlier lashes? Lash lifts might just be the perfect boost to add to your service menu!
This service is well suited for just about anyone. Whether you naturally have short or long eyelashes, a lash lift simply creates a longer, and fuller lash look! Getting a lash lift should be painless, and some clients even find it to be relaxing.
Under-eye pads are applied, and a separate silicone pad is placed on the upper lid. Then, a lifting solution is applied to the upper lid pad, and also to the upper lid lashes. The lashes are combed straight upward – around the rolled part of the upper pad.
A small tool, that looks like a toothpick, is used to separate the lashes and keep them straight. This is the longest part of the service. Getting the lashes to stand straight and cleanly separated is the most important step. Once the lashes are in the perfect form, a perming solution is added for nine minutes longer – depending on the thickness of the lashes.
The solution is then removed, and a neutralizer is applied to stop the perming process, as well as condition the lashes. The neutralizer is left on for about another nine minutes.
The neutralizer is removed, and a damp, soft cotton pad is used to gently rub the lashes and disengage them from the upper silicone pad. Gently clean away any product left behind – in an upward motion, careful not to disturb the newly permed lashes.

This is a very soft and natural look. It really opens the eye. As with any product, consult the manufacturer’s directions. Please share with us any tips or experience you have with the lash lift!
