Forget lash extensions, get a lift!

A Lash Lift is a professional treatment which lifts your natural lashes from the root, giving them a longer and thicker appearance that can last up to six to eight weeks. Lash lifts are perfect for clients who are allergic to lash extension glue or makeup and for those who love the convenience of natural looking, beautiful enhanced lashes and can't be bothered fussing around with make up or the maintaining the upkeep of eyelash extensions.

Lash lifts can suit any type of lashes, opening up the eye area and offering an enhanced lash curl, the trick is using the correct silicone rod to suit the set of lashes you are working on. 

Lash lifts with last anywhere from 4-6 weeks and you can return for your next appointment within this time for your next lift.  To help keep your lashes nourished while doing regular Lash lifts it is recommended to use a Lash serum. My favourite is Eyenvy Conditioner which also has growth benefits in it. Combining a lash growth serum with a lash lift will give you your best possible lashes!!

What is involved in a lash lift?

  • The total treatment time for a lash lift is 50minutes.
  • First we clean your eye area
  • Then we consult with you about what look you would like to achieve.
  • Then we apply lash pads to stop your bottom lashes from wanting to join in with the lift.
  • We then apply lash rods to your eyelids
  • Once we’ve lifted your lashes onto the rods we apply your first solution, this stays on anywhere from 7-10mins depending on your natural lash thickness.
  • We then remove the solution and apply a second solution which sets the curl of the lashes in place. This develops within 5-7mins.
  • We then remove the lash rods and apply a lash tint. The lash tint helps to keep your lashes hydrated as well as giving a beautiful depth to the lash lift.
  • We then remove the tint with some warm water and then you are ready to flutter your new gorgeous lashes.

To protect your lash lift, it is important that you avoid any water or steam on your lashes for 24hrs. It is as easy as that.
