Enjoy perfectly flipped lashes with a lash perm
The Eyes Have It!
If you want to decrease the amount of time your makeup routine requires you might consider an innovative salon service for your eyelashes and eyebrows. Lash perming, lifting, and tinting and brow tinting allow you to wear less eye makeup and mascara—which will improve the health of your eyelashes—and save you valuable time and energy.
Eyelash perming is an exciting professional service specifically for those who want extra curl for their natural lashes. Permed lashes help mascara achieve a fuller look and will remain curled for approximately 6 to 8 weeks. Perfectly flipped eyelashes without an eyelash curler!
So, how does eyelash perming work? Lashes are coated with a special adhesive and wrapped around a curved silicon roller or pad to hold them in a curled position. A permanent relaxing lotion or cream is applied to the eyelashes with a tiny brush, followed by a setting lotion. Finally, a neutralizing solution is applied for another few minutes and…voila! Beautiful curled lashes in about 45 minutes.
Like many other lash-enhancing beauty treatments, eyelash perming it is not yet FDA-approved. Since eyes and the surrounding skin are extremely delicate, there is a minimal risk of damage, including irritation or burning. Solution that is left on too long can fry your lashes, making them break or fall out. So, before you decide on any procedure, make sure that your salon is experienced with this procedure. These are your eyes—don’t cut any corners!
Lash lifts are an excellent way to get the appearance of longer lashes through a low maintenance curling process. Skin Therapy of Charlotte offers the “Babydoll Lash” lash lift, an eyelash procedure that curls, lifts, and shapes natural lashes. Eyelashes are extended upward from root to tip to create a longer, lifted appearance that opens the eyes. The lift procedure takes approximately 75 minutes and generally last up to two months.
Eyelash Tinting/Brow Tinting
To achieve darker, fuller, more dramatic eyelashes and eyebrows try eyelash and/or eyebrow tinting. This procedure darkens smaller, barely visible lashes, fills in the lash line and brows, and highlights and restores your lashes and brows to bring definition and depth to your eyes.
Lash and brow tinting is ideal for those with sparse or blond lashes. It is also a convenient lash-darkening alternative for contact lens wearers and those with sensitivity to eye makeup. Naturally waterproof, eyelash tinting is great for athletes. And, there’s no need to worry about mascara running down your face should you be moved to tears.
Skin Therapy of Charlotte’s licensed master aesthetician, Carol Zoller, can help you choose the lash/brow procedure that’s right for you. With prices starting at only $28 (brow wax and tint), these innovative beauty procedures are an affordable option for everyone’s budget. Beauty? Your eyes will have it!
