Lash Lift

This innovative treatment is a game changer for people on the go and people who don’t wear makeup but still want beautiful long lashes with a natural curl. You won’t feel the need to reach for your mascara anymore because your lashes will appear fuller, thicker and more defined.

What is a lash lift?

A lash lift is a semi-permanent curl that is added to your lashes using very gentle and safe perming and nourishing lotions.

It takes 35-40 minutes to have it done so definitely a perfect lunch time treatment.

With results lasting up to 8 weeks what’s not to love?

**Patch test is required at least 24 hours before receiving treatment

Semi-Permanent Lash Extensions

This particular type of lash extension involves the individual attachment of lashes onto your own natural lashes semi-permanently to add length, fullness and curl.

The individual lashes used are most commonly made from mink, Faux mink, silk or synthetic material.

This treatment is totally customisable. You can pick the length,curl and fullness you would like your lashes to be.Mix and match lengths and curl shapes to get a completely customised look perfect for you.

You can basically choose your dream lashes!!

This treatment takes up 1.5 – 2 hrs to complete.

So definitely not a lunch time treatment.

Typically the results last 3 to 4 weeks you can then choose to have them refilled or removed.

Why get this treatment and who’s it for?

If you are someone who wears false lashes every day and would like to save yourself some time in the mornings or if your someone who isn’t big on makeup but loves the look of full long and curly lashes or if you would just like to enhance your own natural lashes then is is the treatment for you!

2 week express lashes

Unlike the 4 week lash extensions this treatment involves the attachment of cluster or a scatter of individual lashes to your own natural lashes using a semi-permanent glue and is only supposed to last up to 2 weeks.

They are also known as party or holiday lashes because they are perfect for an event or holiday but definitely not meant to last long term like the 4 week lash extensions.

Both treatments are similar in materials used but in the case of the 2 week lashes there isn’t an individual lash attached to each of your own natural lashes but rather a scatter of lashes to create a fuller effect or a false lash effect for your holiday or event.

Also this treatment is much quicker taking approximately 35 – 40 minutes to complete.

Healthier lashes and longer lasting lash extensions

Top tips to help get maximum lasting time from your extensions:

 1. Avoid oil based products in or around your lashes to avoid dissolving the glue and disturbing the lashes. Mascara is not recommended but if you must then choose an oil free one.

 2. Avoid getting your lashes wet for the first 48 hours. No saunas or steam rooms etc..

After the 48 hours avoid getting them extremely wet e.g. don’t let them sit directly under running water.

 3. Be gentle with them avoid rubbing or wiping at them with a heavy hand.

Natural Tips and tricks to healthier lashes:

1. Green Tea

Take advantage of the beneficial properties of green tea, such as flavonoids. Dip a cotton ball in green tea and smear it over the eyelashes. The tea will stimulate growth and help clean the follicles, allowing for more substantial growth to occur.

2. Brushing

Stimulate growth and promote healthy lashes by brushing your lashes twice a day with a lash comb. Brushing helps to distribute the natural oils along the length of your lashes to help keep them strong.

3. Lemon Olive Oil

Olive oil protects, conditions, and lengthens eyelashes. You can also enhance the already healthy properties of olive oil by adding lemon essential oil, which is a natural antiseptic and antimicrobial agent. (If you don’t have lemon essential oil, you can soak lemon peels in olive oil for a couple of days instead.) Apply the lemon and olive oil mixture to your lashes at bedtime and remove in the morning.

4. Proper Diet

You can help promote lash growth by eating a healthy diet that’s high in protein and vitamins. Foods like fish, eggs, beans, and yogurt are all good choices that can contribute to healthy lashes. Soy protein is also beneficial for simulating lash growth.

5. Home-made Eyelash Serum

The final eyelash tip I wanted to mention is actually a homemade lash serum which is made up of coconut oil and essential oil. Coconut oil is packed with beneficial fatty acids that can help strengthen your lashes. And a little bit of lavender essential oil provides additional nourishment!
