Lash Lift & Tint
What is a Lash Lift?
Eyelash lift and tint are cosmetic procedures to curl and color eyelashes that last 4-6 weeks or longer. For some people, this option works so well that they stop using mascara products. For others, it helps to shorten their makeup routine by eliminating the need to curl their lashes. For many, lash curl and tint provide an enhanced look during no-makeup periods. It’s a lifting technique designed to give you longer looking lashes without the need for lash extensions. It really is an easy way to instantly brighten and open up the eye area!
How do I need to prep for the treatment?
Simply arrive with your eyes make-up free and if you wear contacts please have them removed for your appointment.
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. While 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 rods 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.
What are the post treatment instructions?
No heat, steam (including cooking over steaming stovetop), saunas, water, oils, lotions, creams, shampoos, face washes, makeup, makeup remover wipes or pads on lashes for a minimum of 24 hours.
Post Care Instructions (follow for 24 hours after treatment):
– Keep your lashes dry and free of makeup
– Do not use makeup remover wipes, pads or face wash
– Avoid any oil-based creams and lotions
– Avoid heat, steam and saunas
Is there any maintenance?
You don’t have to do anything special with your lashes in between lifts.
*Results may vary.
More Lash Lift & Tint FAQs
Is the treatment safe?
Yes. Lashes are lifted onto our specially shaped lifting rods 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.
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.
Is it painful?
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.
I use a lash growth enhancer. Can I get this treatment?
Yes. As a side note, because growth enhancers make lashes grow faster than normal the lash lift may need to be repeated earlier than those who do not use a growth enhancement.
How long does the effect last?
Depending on the length and quality of your natural lashes, the lift can last for 4 to 6 weeks or longer.
Can I have this procedure if I have glaucoma?
Consult with your physician first.
Can I have this procedure if I recently had blepharoplasty surgery?
You need to wait at least 1 year from your surgery and it is best to consult with your physician before scheduling your lash lift.
Can I have this procedure if I recently had Lasik surgery?

What is Brow Lamination?
Eyebrow lamination is a new trend in the beauty industry! It’s essentially a perm for your eyebrows but it’s the best procedure for taming tough / unruly hairs as it sets them in place so every hair lies in the same direction, giving a just-combed effect or for thinner eyebrows to give them the appearance of thicker, feathery arches.
Lamination will straighten your eyebrow hairs and encourage them to grow in the same direction. They will look thicker, fuller, straighter, and combed up to the ideal shape.
How does Brow Lamination work
Treatment begins with a consultation with our esthetician to find the right shape and style for your face
- A gentle solution is applied to make the hair straight and flexible
- Next, a hydrating serum is applied to hydrate the hair
- A natural-looking tint can be applied (the shade depends on what color your eyebrows are)
- Finally a nourishing serum is applied
- The whole process takes around 50 minutes and lasts around 1 month
Brow Lamination Aftercare
It is important not to get your eyebrows wet for 24 hours, so be careful washing your face that evening.
The brow lamination process can be a little drying, so apply a small amount of oil to your eyebrows every day. Anything from castor oil to your favorite face oil does the job. Then just brush, brush, brush.
Lamination will straighten your eyebrow hairs and encourage them to grow in the same direction but you’ll still need to comb them up for the full feathery brow effect. Finish with some clear brow gel and you’re good to go.
