What to know:
The most important thing to know when deciding to get a Lash Lift (or any service for that matter), is if the professional you're booking with is fully licensed, insured and certified. The law and regulations in our industry have a grey area that many clients don't know about, until it's too late. Please don't be afraid to ask questions about their certifications, experience, insurance, etc. before booking.
I have been a licensed esthetician since I graduated in 2007, and continue to learn and get certifications for new treatments and procedures. I am fully certified to do Lash Lifts and extensions. I started doing lash lifts in October, 2016 and lost count to the number of Lifts i've done. I consider myself very experienced in Lash Lifts and they continue to be my most popular service.
What is a Lash Lift?
A Lash Lift is a maintenance-free alternative to lash extensions. It’s 100% your natural lashes, permed with a curl and tinted to appear darker. The result is longer looking lashes that last at least 6 weeks.
What is the process?
After your initial intake you’ll lay down and get comfy then we'll start with a quick cleanse of the eye area. Once a curl size is selected (S-XL, depending on the length of your natural lashes) the rods are glued to your eyelids with a silicone, water-soluble glue. Using the silicone glue, your lashes are placed perfectly and glued onto the rods. Once each lash is in it’s perfect place, a ‘Lift Lotion’ is applied for up to 10 minutes, and then removed, followed by a 'Setting Lotion' for up to 5 minutes. Once all of the solution is removed, a custom blended vegetable-based tint is applied and makes the entire lash dark and visible. A Lash Botox may be applied to plump up and nourish the lashes, then a thorough cleansing of the eye area is followed by a quick brush and blow-dry before their BIG reveal. (yes, we'll blow-dry your lashes!)
How long does it take?
The entire process takes 45-60 minutes.
What do I need to do before my appointment?
Though not required, It’s always appreciated when you arrive at your appointment with clean, makeup-free lashes.
Can I get a Lash Lift while pregnant?
Yes! I am happy to accommodate pregnant women who cannot lay flat on their backs due to pregnancy.
How do I take care of my lashes in between appointments? What is the maintenance?
The first 24 hours, it's reccomended to keep them dry and untouched.
After the first 24 hours, there is zero maintence to your lashes. It’s a great option for busy babes and low-maintenance mavens because, after the initial treatment, you don’t have to do anything but look great. You can ditch the curler and get on with life. If you want extra POP you can wear mascara but you won't have to.
You may consider applying castor oil or a lash serum to your lashes to help condition and nourish your lashes in between lifts. Grande lash is MY favorite and we sell it for only $50!

What else should I know?
Sometimes you’ll have ‘baby lashes’ growing in at the time of your lift that may appear bent or at a weird angle as they grow out. This is typically around the time that they’ll soon be shedding naturally anyway, and/or is a sign that it’s time for your next lift.
What is if my lashes are really short?
Lash Lifts are for everyone. I suggest giving it a try because most people are shocked at the actual length of their lashes after a Lash Lift. You’ll never know your lash potential if you don’t try. If you’re looking for more volume, you may want extensions, but sometimes simply adding mascara to eyelashes after a lift does the trick! If you’re still not sure, I’m happy to offer a free consult to determine if a lash lift is right for you.
How much does it cost?
I charge $75 for a Lash Lift and that includes the tint! Occasionally I'll offer a special on lash Lifts. Be sure to sign up for my email newsletter to get all the latest news and specials!
