Which one is better? Well, it depends on the look you are wanting to achieve (and ongoing costs).
A lash lift and tint is an excellent way to achieve the look of eyelash extensions with just your natural lashes. Your eyelashes are lifted onto a curled rod and held into place. Several solutions are then applied to the base of your lashes that will result in the “curled” look. A black tint is then applied, removed and VOILA! Beautiful, dark, curled NATURAL eyelashes!
A lash lift and tint can only be performed by a licensed esthetician. Costs range anywhere from $75-$125. Results last 4-8 weeks.
Warning: a lash lift and tint is not for everyone! Please trust your estheticians decision. Lashes that are fragile and too short for the procedure should not move forward with risk of lash damage.
Lash Extensions are all the craze these days. There are several styles to choose from, such as classic lashes, hybrid lashes, volume lashes, etc. Lengths vary. Curls vary. The entire lash design process is customizable, and you can typically choose the style and look of your new lash extensions.
A first time lash appointment can take upwards of 3 hours. It is important to turn off your cell phone and attempt to relax (or sleep) while your lash tech works their magic. Lashes are a focused task and require precision.
During the lash application, your eyes will remained closed. Single or fanned lashes will be applied to each one of your individual lashes. This process takes time, and its worth the wait! Your result will be beautiful, luxurious lashes.
Eyelash Extensions typically last 4 weeks (depending on your natural lash shedding cycle). Most clients return every 2 weeks for a lash fill, in which your technician will remove grown out lashes and replace lashes on new mature lashes. Cost for a classic lash full set range from $100-200. Fill ins every 2 weeks average $60.
