What Is a Lash Lift and Is It Better Than Extensions?
This new keratin treatment is a must-try
We love our lashes…after they’ve been beaten into submission with an eyelash curler and coated with oh, four to six coats of mascara. So we were psyched to discover eyelash lifts, a new treatment popping up all over NYC that gives your eyes that extra oomph without extensions. You might even ditch your mascara for good.
What the heck is a lash lift? It’s a semi-permanent treatment that enhances your natural lashes, making them appear fuller and longer. Keratin serums are applied, then washed off--no extensions or perms necessary. You’ll get curl and volume without that weird kink you sometimes get from clamping down with a curler.
So what happens at my appointment? While lying on your back with your eyes closed, a technician will apply a lifting serum to curl your lashes and another serum to set the curl. A tint is then applied to make your lashes look darker. The treatment takes one hour, and the results last two to three months. (Yep, that’s longer than extensions).
Yesss, where can I get them? Sugaring NYC offers a one-hour eyelash lift session for $200 at its Midtown and Financial District locations.
