One of the hottest trends right now is lash lifting and tinting. It’s a great way to get more dramatic, fuller and curlier natural lashes without mascara or curling machines.
Not only are treatments simple and quick, but effects are long lasting as well.
Many people are opting for lash lifting and tinting to achieve a dramatic look whilst minimising their daily routine. Find out more in our detailed guide:
What are lash lifts and tints
Lash lift treatments use a procedure to shape and set your natural lashes. Sometimes referred to as a “lash perm”, the procedure enhances your own lashes, giving them curl, height and an overall increase in apparent volume.
In addition, many opt for a lash tint at the same time, to deepen the colour of your natural lashes, enhancing the overall effect.
What is the procedure?
Your lash stylist will discuss with you the unique shapes and styles recommended to suit your natural features, as well as the overall look you are hoping to achieve. Like lash extensions, you control the look you are after – those with straighter lashes may opt for a more dramatic curl, or those with naturally curly lashes may look for a more flared style.
It all depends on the number of molding tools your stylist has on hand – and their experience. While many stylists are content to only offer one or two designs, at UP®, its stylists are experts in achieving dozens of different designs.
Once your consultation is complete, your stylist will then begin the procedure, which involves shaping your lashes to the desired look, before setting them with a unique solution designed for use along the lash line.
If you have opted for a lash tint at the same time, your stylist run you through a range of tint colours before applying a lash-specific dye to your natural lashes. Colours can be adapted to give a natural look, right through to deep mascara tones.
Unlike many others, the team at UP® also applies an advanced aftercare formula at the completion of your session. This keratin-based product helps to eliminate frizzy hair whilst providing softness and shine to lashes. Sunflower oil extracts and antioxidants also help protect the hair and provide longer lasting colour-stay results for lash tinting.
The entire treatment usually takes between 45 minutes and 1 hour 15, depending on the package you have selected.
How long do results last?
At UP®, lash lifting and tinting can last anywhere from 6 to 10 weeks. This will depend on your the condition of your natural lashes, your individual lash cycle and your maintenance routine.
Combine this with a lash serum such as Revitalash®, available at UP® here, and your results may last even longer.
