Has anyone ever noticed how much of a difference lashes make? We all know that eyebrows make a huge difference in defining your face shape but there definitely needs to be more emphasis on the beauty of lashes. The beauty industry is continuously evolving and lashes are definitely on the top of the list. Lash extensions have become one of the biggest, fastest-growing beauty trends by far, and women all over have been falling in love with the effects lash extensions give. Although this is a great service, not everyone is a fan of the maintenance that comes with lash extensions. There are people that have amazing natural lashes and want to know, how they can get the same effect naturally with less maintenance and money. Since the beauty industry doesn't disappoint in creativity, we now have LASH LIFT AND TINTING SERVICES.
Lash lifting is great for anyone that desires volume and length without using mascara. You literally get the best of both worlds with this service. Lash lifting offers the Curl of an extension while keeping your natural lashes healthy. And the best part is, you really NEVER have to use Mascara or a Lash curler again! Realistically, lash lifting does what a curler would do just with a semi-permanent perm solution that softens the hair so that its easier to mold and set the shape of your lashes for 6-8 weeks. Lash tinting is applying Dye (usually in black) to the lashes to give it a more fuller voluminous look without the assistance of mascara. Essentially its the same as putting on more than one coat of mascara to get that dark full look. The first 24 hours after a lash lift are crucial. So for the best results, It is recommended that on top of not wearing mascara, you should avoid getting them wet, steaming, and all forms of moisture and/or humidity. After 24 hours you may apply makeup other than waterproof mascara.
The world is full of women who love glam and the maintenance of lash extensions. Once you apply them, you become addicted and learn to live better with the lashes which give you better retention. But for those that are low maintenance and don't like the thought of gluing extensions to your natural lashes, or even those that just want to save a pretty penny, lash lift and tint may be the better option for you. Please be sure to speak to a licensed technician about information regarding the services as everyone has different hair types. Results will vary from client to client. Lastly, if you're looking for a more dramatic look. Try using a lash serum to grow the lashes in between services or a couple of weeks before getting a lift and tint.
