Eyelash Lifting and Tinting
Get the glamorous lashes and brows you deserve with a great selection of lifting and tinting treatments at Bare Essentials in West Hagbourne, Oxfordshire.
The lash lift procedure has revolutionised and replaced old fashioned inadequate perming techniques. Using silicone pads instead of perm rods, new eyelash lifting techniques can lift, straighten or curl, and lengthen your own natural lashes to create a brighter, fuller, wide eyed look.
There’s no need for extensions and the associated aftercare, this will last you six to eight weeks and can be combined with a tint to leave the mascara behind. Eyelash lifting and tinting is quick and painless, and gives you a polished look that lasts.
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 . Whilst 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 pads 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.
Does the Lash Lift procedure hurt?
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.
How long does a lash lift take?
A lash lift can take anything from 45 minutes to an hour from beginning to end. Maybe a little longer if you decide to have your eyelashes tinted which will enhance the effect of your lash lift.
How long will a lash lift last?
A Lash Lift can last 6-8 weeks but can vary from person to person. There is no need for any maintenance appointments in between but you will need to have the process repeated every 6-8 weeks to lift the new hair growth. There are some situations that may cause the lift to drop/weaken prematurely such as swimming, use off harsh products or heat. If you find that your lift does not last the full 2 months, you can repeat the treatment after a minimum of 4 weeks of having the initial treatment, but not before.
Will I have a reaction to the lotion
Very few people have a reaction to the lotion but that doesn’t mean you won’t be one of them. What one person reacts to, another is fine with. This is why you are required to have a patch test 24 hours beforehand. A patch test is quick and simple. It consists of us placing 2 drops of lotions behind the ear for 15 minutes. Wiping it off and waiting to see if any subsequent irritation occurs over the next 24 hrs such as redness, itching or inflammation for example.
I have had a lash lift before at with another therapist, do I still have to have a patch test?
Yes. This may seem an inconvenience, especially if you are keen to have it done. But the products used for the previous lift may differ from the ones we use on you and we would have no way of knowing. We therefore have to test you just like a first time client. This is for your own health/well-being. It is also a legal requirement that forms part of our agreement with our insurers.
I wear contact lenses, can I have this procedure?
Yes. However, we will ask you to remove them temporarily during the treatment as the eyes will be closed throughout.
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.
How do I clean my eyes?
Gently, using mild products. The Simple range is mild and inexpensive.
Can I use an eyelash curler?
No. There will be no need for an eyelash curler as this treatment gives a much better result than using a curler, But more importantly, using one may weaken and damage your lashes.
How often can I have a lash lift?
A lash lift will begin to naturally drop after about 2 months and your lashes will be back to their natural look. The lashes should drop evenly and will not look out of place. You can repeat the treatment after a minimum of one month if you feel you need to, or you can wait until they are back to their natural state.
