What is a lash lift?
A lash lift is essentially an updated version of the lash perm.
This has been one of the most popular questions asked by my clients and I’m not surprised. Over the past year, Instagram has been dominated by photos of lash lifts and many lash artists have added this service to their salon menus.

Keep reading to find out why the lash lift has recently gained so much hype in the beauty world.
What’s the difference between a lash lift and a lash perm?
Beside curling the eyelashes, lash lifts also ‘lifts’ each individual lash with the help of gently curved, silicone forms. This results in lashes that often appear dramatically longer.
The lash lift forms come in different sizes: Small, Medium or Large. The correct size will be chosen during your consultation based on the length or your natural lashes.
Lash perms on the other hand, use cylindrical rods to shape the lashes. The perming rods can produce beautiful curls, but without the ‘lifting’ component, clients often feel like their lashes look shorter.
Product & Placement
Over recent years, many beauty lovers have become aware of potentially harmful substances in their favourite services and products. In response to this, brands such as YUMI Lashes have produced their lash lifting products without any parabens and formaldehyde.
To preserve lash health, lash lifting solution is only placed at the root of the lashes, to reduce the chance of damaging the much finer tips.

Whereas in a lash perm service, perming solution is applied over the entire lash, which increases the risk of over processing. Over processed lashes will appear frizzy or ‘fried’.
Client that had an over processed lash perm from another salon. I advised her to wait at least 4 weeks before trying the YUMI Lash Lift. This will give her damaged lashes a chance to shed naturally and be replaced by new ones.
Most lash lifting processes end with a nourishing oil to add moisture to the lashes.
In addition to the nourishing oil, the YUMI Lashes lash lift service includes an application of their Aftercare Lash Serum. This clear mascara can be used daily to keep your lashes conditioned and help your lash lift last longer.
With these great improvements, there’s no surprise why the lash lift has become so popular and for some, an alternative to eyelash extensions.
