What do you need to know about lash lamination?
There are many reasons why clients refuse to wear eyelash extensions and prefer lash lamination. Here are some of the recent complaints we heard from our clients:
- “The maintenance…”- Clients love the looks and convenience of eyelash extensions, but cannot stand the post-care for making them last in between lash fills.
- “I love rubbing my eyes…” – Itchy eyes like to get rubbed. Seasonal allergies can cause an increase in eye rubbing. Eyelash extensions are not the right fit for eye rubbers.
- “I already have long thick natural eyelashes; I do not want to damage them with extensions.” Lash professionals likely disagree with this common myth. However, it is an all too common objective that can use an alternative.
The good news is that the professionals at Quality Beauty Store want to offer a solution for clients who have decided eyelash extensions are not a right fit for them. Lash lamination is also known as the lash lift. It is a growing beauty service similar to lash perms in which a client’s natural eyelashes are enhanced with a short process, no maintenance, and lasting results.
What is the difference between a lash lift and lash perm?
Lash Lift starting to become a treatment which is as popular as the eyelash extensions. Lash professionals are achieving certifications for both eyelash extensions and lash lifts to remain well versed and competitive in the constantly evolving beauty industry.The major difference between a lash perm and a lash lift are the rods. Lash perms typically use a rod that offers a gradual curl to natural lashes. Rods used for lash lifts create a more dramatic curl closer to the base of the natural lashes. This results in a “lift” of the natural lashes giving the illusion of longer natural lashes. Lash perms and lash lifts use the same formula to semi-permanently process the natural lashes.
How long does a lash perm last?
Similarly, both lash services can last up to 6-8 weeks. Lash lift and tint services done too soon from the client’s previous treatment will not produce the results desired. It is important for both the lash professional and client to know how important it is to wait at least 8 weeks in between lash lift services for best results.
How much does it cost to get a lash lift?
Lash Lift service costs may vary considering frequent add on services like a lash tint or keratin treatment. Both add on services will affect the appointment time as well. Overall, this treatment is quick and seamless. Expect most clients to fall asleep during the appointment time. The most time-consuming part of the appointment is to secure the natural eyelashes to the rods. Once lashes are straight and secure, processing time varies from 5 minutes to 30 minutes, including neutralizing the lashes.One of the most important additions to the lash lift services that keep natural eyelashes healthy and conditioned is the keratin add-on. Just like a perm applied to the hair on your head, it is processing your natural strands. Any process to natural hair will eventually dry the hair out. Keratin treatment add-on can reduce the brittleness of your natural eyelashes.

What is a lash tint?
Lash tint is the most common add on service to a lash lift. Clients can expect to pay at least an additional £5 to £20 to the lash lift price. This complimentary service makes an impactful difference to the results. Especially if the client’s natural eyelashes are light, blonde, or faded. At the Quality Beauty Store, our best seller lash tint product is Refectocil Tint. These are high-quality material lash tints made in Austria and are well known in the beauty industry.Finally, it is very important for lash professionals to educate their clients on eyelash serums, conditioners, and growth agents. Using a post-care serum will reduce the natural lashes from “kinking” over time, as the formula starts to wear off. Also, clients must maintain straight lash in between lash lift appointments.
