Have you tried a lash lift here in Orlando yet? Maybe you are asking, what is a lash lift and how is it different than having extensions?
I was just as curious as you are when I first came across it a while back and decided to delve deeper into the reasons why somebody would choose a lash lift instead of lash extensions.
Basically in a nutshell a lash lift is a great alternative to eyelash extensions or for clients with sensitivities. It is a low maintenance lash solution for clients as results can last up to 12 weeks (depending on your hair type). No fills are needed.
Using your own lashes, I perm against a silicon pad to give your eyelashes a natural looking “lift”. These are perfect for those who have straight or downward facing natural lashes, giving your eyes and face an instant lift! You will look more awake and even more youthful! Adding a black or blue/black tint to your eyelashes to go with the lash lift service really makes your eyes pop also!
The only set back which is a minor one is you cannot get your lashes wet for 24 hours following the treatment. No hot saunas, steam rooms, hot yoga. Let those puppies set and take their shape and after 24 hours you can frollick around the neighborhood showing off your peepers!
So I decided to go ahead and start researching what this was all about. I did learn from some videos that I watched how to absolutely NOT do a lash lift on a client! By this I mean, product was nearly dripping into the eye, the technician was rough and at times it just seemed horrifying for the client. I know that they say beauty can be painful…BUT some lash lift technicians out there should just not be performing this service. I was also saddened after learning during my research that some lash lift technicians out there are not licensed or certified and by just watching a few lash lift videos on Youtube decided to go working on clients! Please be careful who you allow near your eyes.
It was hard for me to find extensive hands on lash lift training in Orlando, Florida for the lash lift service and I didn’t want to introduce this service to my clients by just observing a video. So what better way to get a full day’s hands on lash lift class than by going back to my previous home in Los Angeles, California and taking a class there with Beverly Hills Lashes.
It was a wonderful day and I learnt soooo much and got so much hands on experience, I already feel that I am good to go with charging full price to my clients. I have friends lining up at the door waiting for their lashes to feel luscious! As a warning….if somebody’s price is too cheap for lash services, question their training, insurance and their licensing. If you value your eyes you shouldn’t be overly concerned about saving a few dollars here and there. Cutting corners can sometimes lead to unsanitary practices by the technician as they try to keep their costs down.
A blog will follow on from this one with some before and after pictures! I know you are dying to see them!
Bye for now my loves and I hope to see some of you very soon for a lash lift in Winter Park, Florida!! You can take a look at my price list for client services here!
