This coming Friday, 24th September, is Lash Stylists Day! So, to mark the occasion and celebrate our Woman therapists who do an excellent job lifting our Nelson clients’ lashes (and spirits), we thought we’d write an article about the benefits of lash lift treatments over lash extensions. Read on to discover more.
Lash lift treatments compared to lash extensions.
Clients will often ask whether lash lift treatments are preferable to eyelash extensions. Of course, that’s always a personal choice. But there are a few things to consider when you make that decision.
Lash lift treatments offer a natural look; they are designed to enhance your natural lashes. By comparison, lash extensions are full-on drama!
For day-to-night versatility, it’s much easier to take a lash lift look from day to night with some clever makeup than to take lash extensions from night to day!
Visit our Nelson spa for a lash lift, and you’ll walk out with beautifully natural yet longer-looking lashes. They’ll stay that way for a good six to eight weeks. But lash extensions are more high maintenance as they last only a month. They may also need a touch-up in between. More maintenance means more expense. So, if you’re looking to enhance your lashes but still get excellent value for money, lash lifts are the way to go.
Durability and Sensitivity:
A lash lift works with what you already have, so there is less risk of sensitivity; plus, they don’t need any special care beyond the first 48 hours post-treatment, when you should avoid getting them wet. However, lash extensions aren’t as durable and require extra care. You’ll need to avoid oil-based cleansers, side and tummy sleeping, rubbing of the eyes, delicate removal of makeup and so on. Many clients also find continual applications of extensions stunt their natural lash growth over time.
