What if we told you that you could wake up with perfectly curled and defined lashes every day without mascara or lash extensions? Lash lifts have been used for years in the beauty industry as a quick and effective way to enhance your natural eyelashes. There’s no glue, no damaging lash curlers, and no daily maintenance needed!
Lash lift services have become increasingly popular over the past few years. We love how such a simple and quick treatment can transform your natural eyelashes, leaving you with a fluttery, long-lasting curl that makes even the boldest mascara appear tame. In this article, we’re discussing the entire lash lift service and what to expect.
What is a Lash Lift?
Put simply, a lash lift is like a perm for your eyelashes. Unlike lash extensions that add extra volume to natural lashes, a lash lift changes the shape and color of your natural lashes.
Lash lifts work by curling, reshaping, and separating your lashes from base to tip, resulting in a longer-looking lash line. We achieve this by saturating lashes with safely formulated chemical solutions that gently restructure the chemical bond within your lashes. Avari Beauty’s Lash Perming Solutions are specially created to provide a quick and lasting lash lift while being gentle on lashes. Click here to shop.
What Happens During a Lash Lift?
A lash lift service begins with a thorough consultation to assess your natural lashes and determine your lash goals. This is a great time to share your typical beauty routine and what you’d like to achieve from your lash lift. Once your esthetician has determined that you’re a good candidate, they will choose the perfect sized lash lift shield to create your desired lash style.
Your esthetician will start by cleansing the eye area and carefully placing a lash lift shield along your lash line. Next, a perming solution is gently applied to your natural lashes, curling them over the lash shield to your desired shape. This solution helps to loosen the bonds of your lashes, preparing them for a new curl and increased length. Your esthetician will carefully time this step to avoid over-processing.
The next step is to apply a fixing solution that sets the lashes in place. This step is crucial, as it helps to maintain your lash lift results for up to 8 weeks! Finally, your esthetician will apply a nourishing solution that heals and repairs the lashes. Created with keratin proteins, the nourishing solution leaves your lashes shiny, protected and smoothed.
And that’s it — You can expect to have beautifully curled, longer-looking lashes in as little as 45-60 minutes!
Does a Lash Lift Work on Any Lash Type?
Yes! A lash lift can work on long or short, curly or straight, fair or dark lashes. In fact, lash lifts can be especially effective on lashes that grow straight or are very curly. If you want darker lashes, consider adding a lash tint service to your lift. A lash tint dyes your natural lashes darker, giving you a natural ‘I woke up like this’ look without mascara!
How Long Does a Lash Lift Last?
Lash lift results typically last for up to 6 to 8 weeks; however, this can differ depending on how quickly your eyelashes grow. To keep lashes looking luscious after your lash lift, we recommend using a lash treatment, such as Avari Beauty’s Lash & Brow Conditioning Serum. Featuring a blend of organic castor oil, vitamin e, and dried rose petals, this treatment keeps your lashes luscious and healthy while supporting growth.

The wonderful thing about a lash lift is how low maintenance the procedure is! Once your lashes are set, there’s nothing else to do but enjoy!
To ensure a long-lasting result, follow these tips:
First 24 hours post lash lift:

- For the first 12 hours, avoid any contact with water on the lashes

Up to 48 hours post lash lift:
- Avoid prolonged steamy showers, saunas, or hot tubs.
Day 3 and onward post lash lift:
- Be aware that UV light may make lash tint fade faster.
