What’s the Difference Between the Lash Lift & Lash Perm?
Eyelash treatments have taken the beauty world by storm in recent years, with extensions being replaced by longer lasting techniques. In a fast-paced industry, lash lift is now one of the hottest trends with beauty professionals all over the country making sure it’s on their service lists.
When undertaking their keratin lash lift training, our beauty trainees often ask us why it have become popular when lash perms have been in the industry for so long. So, what are the fundamental differences professionals need to be aware of?
With lash perms, the curled eyelashes are produced by winding them around a cylindrical rod so that they curl more tightly and open up the appearance of the whole eye. On the other hand, ‘lifting’ involves the natural lashes up from the base, using a gently-curved, silicone rod. So it gives the appearance of dramatically longer lashes.
The technique used for a lash perm works better on those with longer lashes as the curling shortens them rather than elongating them. Lash lifts are suitable for all lash lengths due to the ability to ‘lift’ the natural lashes from the root. This makes them more inclusive for women with shorter lashes who have always turned to extensions.
With lash lift techniques using the full length of the lashes to produce amazing results, they last slightly longer than a lash perm. Moreover, they don’t need a top up for 2 to 3 months. Lash lifts require little upkeep, and the aftercare is minimal, ensuring they’re the perfect solution for those with busy schedules. Clients can also ask for tinting treatments alongside the lift, complementing their entire look and creating a polished finish.
The lash perm has long held a place as a fantastic alternative to extensions for women who want their natural eyelashes to have a more pronounced curl. While both produce stunning looks, the lash lift has evolved as one of the most up to date techniques for all those looking to find sustainable ways to enhance their natural lashes.
