Eyelash extensions are a cosmetic treatment that involves attaching synthetic or natural hair lashes to the individual lashes of the client using a specially formulated adhesive. The goal of eyelash extensions is to create the appearance of longer, thicker lashes. The extensions can be made of synthetic or natural fibers, and they can come in different thicknesses, lengths, curls, and colors.
The procedure is typically performed by a trained and licensed technician, and it usually takes 1-2 hours to complete, depending on the number of lashes being applied and the desired look. During the procedure, the technician will carefully attach individual extensions to the client’s natural lashes, one by one, using a small amount of adhesive. The extensions are applied on top of the natural lashes, not on the skin. They should not damage your natural lashes and will fall out naturally.
Eyelash extensions are designed to be worn for several weeks, and then the extensions will need to be refilled or replaced as the natural lashes grow and shed. It’s essential to keep in mind that eyelash extensions do require maintenance, and it’s important to follow proper aftercare instructions to avoid any damage or irritation.
Eyelash tinting and eyelash lifting are cosmetic treatments used to enhance the appearance of eyelashes. Eyelash tinting involves applying a semi-permanent dye to the lashes to darken them, while eyelash lifting uses chemicals and equipment to curl them and give them a lifted, more open appearance. This same service is also available for the eyebrows.
During an eyelash or eyebrow tinting treatment, the technician will apply a semi-permanent dye to your lashes/brows, typically using a small brush. The dye is left on for several minutes, depending on the desired level of darkness, and then rinsed off. The color will last for several weeks, usually up to 6-8 weeks. The process takes around 15-20 minutes, and it’s usually done along with eyelash extensions, as it gives a more polished look.
Eyelash lifting, also known as a perm, involves using a chemical solution to break down the proteins in the hair and then using a small rod to lift and shape the lashes. The process takes around 45 minutes, and the result will last for 6-8 weeks, after which a touch-up is usually recommended.
Both eyelash/brow tinting and lifting are considered safe when performed by a trained and licensed technician. It’s essential to follow all after-care instructions and avoid applying oil-based products to the lashes, as it can cause the tint and perm to fade faster.
It’s also important to note that people with sensitive eyes or allergic reactions to certain chemicals should not undergo eyelash tinting and lifting. Before the treatment, it is essential to consult with a professional who can assess the suitability and health of your lashes.
