Lash Extensions vs. Lash Lift: What’s the best choice?


Everywhere you look people are getting their lashes done. Some lashes seem to be so natural they couldn’t possibly be fake. Others look more like they have strip lashes on at all times! Chances are, they either have lash extensions or a lash lift. The question is this – how does one choose between the two?

First up, lash extensions. What are they?

Lash extensions are synthetic or mink lashes that are attached to each of your own natural lashes. They can range from one synthetic lash for a classic mascara look to upwards of ten lashes on a lash for some eye popping drama. Lashes are put on with a semi-permanent glue that can last up to four weeks. However, most people have to get a fill about every two weeks.

Lash extensions might be right for you if you weren’t blessed with the long and thick lashes you so desire, or you want to save time in the morning by skipping the application of mascara!

Next option, Lash Lift.

A lash lift is an eye safe perm made for your lashes. It is an ideal service for those who have straight lashes that won’t hold a curl. By lifting the lashes into a new shape, you can create the illusion of longer, thicker lashes.

Lash lifts require less trips to the spa, but the outcome is based on the current length of your natural lashes. Without the maintenance of going to get a fill every 2 weeks, less maintenance is required. Lash lifts are recommended to be done every 8 weeks.

Which service is the best choice for me?

If you are looking for longer, thicker lashes than the ones you were born with, lash extensions cannot be beaten. However, if you feel you already have medium to long lashes that just won’t behave, then a lash lift is the perfect solution for you. If done correctly, neither service should be damaging to your lashes, so you really cannot go wrong if you choose the right provider.
