Should You Get Eyelash Extensions Or a Lash Lift?

SHOULD YOU GET EYELASH EXTENSIONS, OR A LASH LIFT?

Both services are lash enhancements designed to help you look and feel your best. While each can provide a natural appearance, the results of a lash lift and tint are usually described as more natural than lash extensions. While lash extensions allow for more customizable options, making the service ideal for guests who want the choice to change from classic to volume, or volume to mega volume.


But which of these two lash services is right for you? See the details below and decide which one is calling your name!


WHAT IS A LASH LIFT VS. LASH EXTENSIONS?

A lash lift is a semi-permanent process by which your natural lashes are safely curled by one of our trained lash artist's based on the look you desire. Like a “perm” for your lashes (without the ringlets), a lash lift gently lifts your lashes making your eyes appear more awake and refreshed.


Lash extensions will also enhance your look, and this service entails one or more eyelash extensions (depending on the customized application you choose) being attached to a single natural eyelash across your lash line.


No matter the lash service you choose, your stylist will help you select the best option to suit your lash goals, whether that’s sticking to a more natural appearance or going for full dramatic effect.



THE LASH LIFT PROCESS

Our lash artist's use a silicone lifting rod to carefully curl your natural lashes, which are then “set” with a gentle adhesive, leaving you with a flawless, natural-looking lift!


Lash lifts are quick, with most appointments lasting less than an hour. For those who desire a little more oomph on their lash line, we often recommend a lash tint with your lash lift! Combining these two services provides a bolder look to further enhance those newly curled eyelashes. With little to no maintenance, guests who choose a lift and tint will enjoy a beautiful and effortless lash look for up to four weeks.


For best results, lash lifts without a tint should be repeated every eight weeks—but this recommendation will depend on your lashes. Your stylist will also work with you to set a maintenance schedule that will help you keep your lovely lash lift looking flawless!


THE EYELASH EXTENSION PROCESS

Your appointment will begin with a consultation with one of our expert stylists. During this conversation, we’ll define your #LashGoals and select the four elements that will result in your fully customized lash look:

  • Lash curl

  • Lash type

  • Application method

  • Lash level

During your consultation, your lash artist will help you further narrow your options. Depending on the options you choose, the application process can take anywhere from 2-3 hours during your first lash extension appointment.


Once you and your lash artist determine the details, it’s time for the lash magic to begin! When the process starts, your lash artist will prep your lash line and clean your lashes. Next, your stylist will gently adhere individual synthetic lash extensions to your natural lashes with a safe, Bella Lash Eyelash Extensions professional adhesive.


During the application, you will feel a very light touch to your lash line, which most guests find SO relaxing. Can you say “lash nap”?


When your lash artist has completed your lash look, we’ll complete our final assessment before handing YOU the mirror. It’s officially time to look at those GORGEOUS, new lash extensions!


DO I NEED A FULL SET OF LASHES AT EVERY APPOINTMENT?

During a lash fill appointment, your lash artist will assess your lash line, remove any long, overgrown extensions and apply extensions to any of your new natural lashes.


You loose approximately 3-5 natural eyelashes per day. We recommend clients schedule fill appointments every two to three weeks. Regular fill appointments mean you’ll have fresh, full lashes every day and enjoy a little guaranteed self-care time. Just like a full lash application, a lash fill is painless and completed less than two hours.
