What’s the difference between perming and lifting?
The main difference between lash lifting and eyelash perming is that you are using a shield rather than a roller. The shield has a flat back so the effect is more of a lift rather than a curl. The same dangers apply to the lash lift as to the lash perm, you can over curl if the solution goes too far around the rod or shield.
The effect of the lash lift is stunning especially when done with a tint. The tint should be part of the lash lift treatment to give clients the full effect of the lash lift. The tips of even dark lashes can be light and when tinted and lifted, the lashes appear longer.
The whole treatment takes 1¼ hours from start to finish, which is much quicker than a full set of extensions.
The lift will last for around 6 weeks, without the need for an infill.
Give clients the lashes they always wanted
The Lash Lift is my favourite treatment… whoops did I say that in the midst of the Eyelash Extension Revolution? Personally, I have very disappointing naturally dead straight lashes and discovering this procedure was a magical experience for me. I realised I actually ‘had’ eyelashes, and they were not as short as I thought they were. The lash lift, in fact gave me the lashes I always wanted and never thought I could have! You can truly WOW your clients with the lash lift.
An alternative treatment
If you want to run a successful lash service, you should offer Lash Lifting. What are you going to do with the clients that can’t have or simply don’t want lash extensions? Having the Lash Lift on the menu will make sure those ladies don’t look for another salon that gives them choice.
Having the Lash Lift on the menu will draw more people into your salon for starters, but also, those ladies who want to rest their lashes from extensions could be having this treatment instead. Otherwise, they’ll not be coming to your salon at all if you have nothing else to offer.
