Difference Between Lash Lift and Lash Extensions

Which is best for your clients?

As a licensed beauty professional, you know how popular eyelash treatments are with clients. And, of course, they’re vital for boosting your sales too. But with so many different lash treatments available, it can be hard for your clients to know which one is best. Should they choose eyelash extensions or lash lift treatments?

Eyelash extensions have been the answer to eyelash problems for many years. But lash lifts have become more popular recently as clients favor techniques that enhance their natural beauty and have longer-lasting results.

Both treatments alter the look of eyelashes, but that’s where their similarities end. So, what are the fundamental differences between an eyelash lift and eyelash ex- tensions, and which is best? Let’s take a look.


Lash lift vs. lash extensions: the techniques

The procedures for lash lift vs. lash extensions are entirely different. Lash lifts enhance natural eyelashes, while lash extensions are like hair extensions for your lashes. Adding fake lashes to create an enhanced look.

Eyelash extensions procedure

An eyelash extension involves gluing synthetic lashes to individual lashes to add length, volume, and curl. They are applied, one lash extension at a time, using tweezers and medical-grade adhesive. Clients can choose from a range of different lengths, curls, and thicknesses.

They can also choose between classic eyelash extensions and volume eyelash extensions. In classic lash extensions, a single artificial lash is applied to every natural lash. Whereas, with a volume extension, anything from 2-5 artificial lashes are applied to every natural lash to add volume and length. It’s a time-consuming procedure that can take up to two hours.

Lash lift procedure

A lash lift procedure is an enhancing treatment for natural lashes, which involves lifting the lashes from the base using a gently curved silicone rod. First, a decon- structing solution breaks down the hair structure to remove the natural curl. The lashes are then re-shaped over the curling rod, and a reconstructing solution is applied to fix them into their new position. This technique lifts the lashes to make them appear longer without adding artificial lashes.

A lash lift procedure is much quicker than eyelash extensions. Your clients can be in and out of the salon within an hour... allowing you to treat two clients with a lash lift in the same amount of time it takes to carry out one lash extension treatment.

Standard lash lifts go no further than lifting natural lashes to make them appear longer. So, it can seem as if lash extensions will give clients better results. However,...

Beauty brand, InLei® has developed a revolutionary lash lift treatment that goes further than a standard lash lift. Producing results that outperform lash extensions without faking it!

Lash lift vs. lash extensions: on different lash types

Eyelash extensions work well for clients with short lashes because they add length. But they can also be used on clients with longer lashes. However, some clients have weak or damaged lashes that may not be strong enough to support the weight of long and thick lash extensions. So, if they're looking for a dramatic effect, you may have to tone down their expectations.

Lash lifts, on the other hand, work on all lashes, whatever their length or strength, because of its ability to lift the natural lashes from the roots, making them appear longer. So, lash lifting is ideal for clients with short eyelashes who have always turned to lash extensions in the past. And, if you use a top-quality lash lift brand, such as InLei® Lash Filler, lash lifts will work on damaged lashes too.

InLei® Lash Filler is the only lash lift treatment that nourishes and repairs damaged lashes, making it suitable for all lash types.

Lash lift vs. lash extensions: the results

This is the most crucial part for your clients when it comes to lash lift vs. lash extensions.

Lash extensions give clients eyelashes that are longer, thicker, and more curled than their own lashes. And, depending on the treatment they choose, they could have more volume too. But you need to be careful, as too many extensions can weigh the lashes down. Lash extensions will last for around 90 days. However, lash extensions require a lot of maintenance, and your clients will need to come back to the salon for refills every 2-4 weeks to make them last that long.

When it comes to eyelash lifts, if you’re only using a standard lash lift, your client’s natural lashes will be lifted to make them look longer, and they'll have a natural appearance. But that doesn’t sound very exciting compared to lash extensions.

However, there is a lash lift treatment to rival lash extension results... InLei® Lash Filler.

InLei® Lash Filler is a lash lift treatment that’s scientifically proven to promote lash growth. Making natural lashes grow longer and thicker by an average of 24%.

InLei® Lash Filler's results are impressive. The technique uses the full length of the lash line to completely transform the eyelashes... they are lifted from the base line, producing a more gentle and natural curl, opening up the eye area and making the eyelashes look dramatically longer while maintaining a natural look.

In addition, InLei® Lash Filler nourishes lash hairs and promotes growth. So, lashes don’t just appear longer, they actually grow longer and thicker.

Lash lifts also last for around 90 days, but with no touch-ups required. So, when it comes to maintenance, lash lifts vs. lash extensions win.

InLei® Lash Filler is an enhanced lash lift treatment with outstanding results compared to lash extensions

Lash lifts are fast becoming the most popular eyelash procedure, as clients love the low-maintenance, natural look. But, if you’re only offering a standard lash lift, you could be missing out on increased client satisfaction and sales. Because, as you’ve now heard, InLei® Lash Filler goes even further than a standard lash lift.

It still lifts and curls lashes, but it also promotes growth, helping your client’s eyelashes to grow thicker and longer. Giving awe-inspiring results that will keep them coming back for more.

How does InLei’s® Lash Filler work?

InLei® Lash Filler is a 3-step lash lifting treatment that takes a standard lash lift to the next level. Most lash lifts have two steps. First, deconstructing the hair, then moving it and fixing it into its new position. InLei® Lash Filler does this too, but there’s an extra step!

The 3-step process to longer, thicker natural lashes without using lash extensions

Step 1: Form 1 solution

This chemical solution gently penetrates the lashes without causing damage to the structure. It deconstructs the existing curl, ready for it to be shaped.

Step 2: Fix 2 solution

Once the lashes have been shaped into their new position over a curling rod, this setting solu- tion recreates keratin bonds and fixes the lashes in place.

Step 3: Filler 3 solution

This is the extra step that’s missing from a stand- ard lash lift. This nourishing solution contains care- fully formulated oils that penetrate deep into the hair structure to repair damage and promote growth. Creating longer, thick lashes.

These three formulas work harmoniously together to ensure a gentle and stable thickening and curling of the lashes without causing damage. The process is quick – taking just 45 minutes to an hour, and there’s no need for touch-ups, unlike lash extensions.

You can also give clients a lash tint between steps one and two to further enhance the look. So, your clients will have naturally gorgeous lashes every day without needing to wear mascara.

InLei® recommends 2-4 sessions over 3-5 weeks, with the thickening results lasting for up to 7 months. Eyelash extensions require frequent repeat trips to the salon to maintain results for that long, so when it comes to a lash lift vs. lash extensions, InLei® eyelash lifts give the longest-lasting results.
