What Is a Lash Lift?

Everything you need to know before your appointment

A lash lift curls your lash from base to tip so that you can see the full length. All lashes have a natural shape to them, so this process alters that shape via a tiny curling rod and a lifting solution.

Every treatment begins with a thorough consultation to determine what kind of lash style you are looking to achieve. Then, your therapist will cleanse the eye area and place a silicone rod onto the eyelids. The natural lashes are then curled over and attached to the rod with an adhesive to set the lashes. Once the therapist ensures everything is positioned correctly, a lifting lotion is applied to allow the lashes to mold around the curling rod, followed by a setting lotion that sets the lash shape.

Expect the whole thing to take about 45-60 minutes.

The results typically last four to six weeks, depending on how quickly your eyelashes grow. You should avoid mascara for 48 hours after the treatment, and leave lashes untouched for a full day. No makeup, or water should come in contact with your lashes for 24 hours to ensure the lift correctly sets into shape. Then, you can fully enjoy the treatment’s results.

Once lashes are set, a lash oil can help keep lashes in tip-top shape.

What Is Eyebrow Lamination?

Everything you need to know before your appointment

They say that the eyebrows frame the face, and luckily for us, we no longer have to rely on our blunt tweezers and terrible eyesight to turn our hairs into face-framing works of art. There are now many innovative treatments offering to trim, tidy, and transform our eyebrows. One newer — and increasingly popular — treatment is called brow lamination.

Brow lamination is essentially refers to a process in which a brow specialist softens the hair follicle using a chemical solution “and then re-shapes, or sets, it into a more refined, lifted, smoother shape. The result? Perfect brushed up brows that give a fuller, more uniform and defined look.

The main benefit of laminated brows is, of course, the look of them. The brow will lay in a more aesthetically pleasing shape, looking fuller and more lifted. In addition to smoothing the hairs out, you can also re-shape the brows a little during lamination; for example raising the arch or lowering the tail to get your desired shape.
