No fake eyelashes or extensions, no eyelash curler, just your gorgeous and natural set of eyelashes!

Lash Lift is one of our favorite services and it’s quickly becoming one of the most popular. This technique is completely natural and utilizes lifting lotion and silicone rods to lift your eyelashes, making them look longer and fuller. It lasts six to eight weeks, sometimes longer, and you’ll still see a fabulous lash lift even when you get of the shower or a swimming pool.

This is probably the most cost effective and safest lash treatment out there. We use Elleebana Lash Lift, which is one of the most highly recommended brands for lash lift treatments. We can’t even begin to tell you how much time this will save you in the morning. A few of our clients even expressed they didn’t have to start applying mascara until the second week after their treatment, and even if they did, they applied one coat.

You don’t realize how many you have or how long your eyelashes truly are until you receive a Lash Lift treatment! Waking up like this – with completely natural, curled lashes – is absolutely worth it.

Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about lash lifts:

What is a Lash Lift?

The lash lift procedure has revolutionized old, inadequate perming techniques. Using silicone pads instead of perm rods, this new technique can lift, straighten or curl, and lengthen your own natural lashes to create a brighter, fuller, wide eyed look. No need for extensions and the associated aftercare, this will last you 6-8weeks. 

How do I need to prep for the treatment?

Please come in make up free. If you wear contacts, they must be removed.

Can a Lash Lift be used to compliment other treatments?

Yes! A lash Lift is enhanced when you use an eyelash growth product, or a semi-permanent mascara. While your lashes grow longer, our process controls straight or overly curly lashes by giving them a uniform lifted look. 

Is a Lash Lift the same as an eyelash perm?

No the Lash lift is a new, improved procedure, overcoming the ‘over curled’ look of its predecessor . Whilst the chemical procedure is identical to a perm, the difference is in the results. By ditching the old fashioned perm rollers which curled back the lashes to the extent of the ‘dolly look’, the silicone pads used for this new procedure lifts the lash from the root in either a straight or curled, upwards fashion that produces length and a bright eyed enhanced look.

Does the Lash Lift procedure hurt?

No the procedure is totally painless. You will have your eyes closed for the entire treatment and although it may feel a little strange being unable to open your eyes for this time, it offers you a chance to relax during the treatment.

Is the procedure safe?

Yes. Lashes are lifted onto our specially shaped lifting pads before products are applied.

Will the Lash Lift damage my natural lashes?

No. Your lash procedure will be performed with the utmost care and proper technique. The product never touches the skin during the process. Redness around the eye may occur due to the product removal process (wiping the eyes with cotton rounds) but should disappear within a few minutes after the procedure.

How long does a lash lift take?

An Elleebana lash lift takes approximately 45 minutes.

Can I wear makeup after my lash lift?

Yes but it is advised that you leave your lashes untouched for at least 24 hours after your treatment. You may find that there is no need for mascara anyway, but if you wish to make your lashes even fuller, a non-waterproof mascara is advised as the removal of waterproof mascaras can be harsh on the lashes and weaken the lift.

Post Care Instructions:

  • Keep your lashes dry and free of makeup for 24 hours after the treatment.

  • Avoid any oil based creams and lotions for the first 24 hours after the treatment.

  • Do not use waterproof mascara.

  • Do not irritate or rub your eyes while you have a Lash Lift
