Lash Lifts vs Lash Extensions

Date

Lash lifts and lash extensions are two popular treatments for enhancing the look of your lashes. A lash lift is a process that curls your natural lashes upward using a perming solution, while lash extensions involve adding individual false lashes to your natural lashes.

Let’s take a look at the pros and cons for maintenance and cost of lash lifts and lash extensions:

Lash Lift Pros:

  1. Lash lifts are generally less expensive than lash extensions and may be a more affordable option for those on a budget
  2. The results of a lash lift can last up to 6-8 weeks, which means less frequent appointments and maintenance.
  3. You can use mascara as usual after a lash lift.

Lash Extension Pros:

  1. Lash extensions can create a more enhancing look than a lash lift, adding length and volume to your natural lashes.
  2. Extensions are customizable, allowing you to choose the length, curl, and thickness of the added lashes.
  3. Lash extensions can last up to 4-6 weeks before requiring a touch-up appointment.

Lash Lift Cons:

  1. While less expensive than lash extensions, lash lifts still require regular appointments for upkeep, which can add up over time.
  2. If done improperly, a lash lift can cause damage to your natural lashes, leading to breakage or even loss.
  3. You cannot wet your lashes or use certain eye makeup products for 24-48 hours after a lash lift, which may be inconvenient for some.
  4. The result may not look as outstanding depending on your natural lash status.

Lash Extensions Cons:

  1. Lash extensions are generally more expensive than a lash lift, making them less accessible to those on a budget.
  2. Maintenance appointments are necessary every few weeks to keep up the appearance of the extensions.
  3. If applied incorrectly, the lashes can stick together and cause natural lash damage.

Whether extensions or lifts, this depends on personal preferences and needs. We specialize in natural eyelash extensions more than lash lifts because they are customizable, enhancing by curl and length for a more bolder natural look, the longevity (our lashes more than 2 weeks), no maintenance – you don’t need to worry about curling your lashes or applying mascara as you would with natural lashes or after a lash lift and the convenience –  you do not need to apply mascara or other eye makeup products to enhance the look of your lashes, which can save time and money in the long run.

Are you ready to switch to the natural lash life?
