Lash Lift vs. Lash Perm

Treatments for your eyelashes tend to be in demand, almost as much as achieving the perfect brow. There are two main procedures that can be done for your eyelashes to emphasise their length, or extenuate that curl. They are known as the lash lift and lash perm.

Just like many industries, the beauty game moves fast, with new procedures constantly being innovated. Lately, there has been a trend in regards to the lash lift, which is a similar treatment, producing slightly different results to that of the lash perm. So what is the difference? And which one is for you?

Lash Perm

The lash perm is no stranger to the beauty world. It is a treatment that results in our lashes being semi-permanently curled for weeks through winding the hairs around a cylindrical rod. Lash perms are recommended for women with long eyelashes, as the process tends to slightly reduce their length, to gain that beautiful curl. Alternatively, they are also suggested for people with wide, open eyes.

Lash Lift

While the perm curls your lashes, the lift ‘lifts’ your lashes up from the base. Using the same chemical solution as a perm, the lash lift uses more of a speed bump shaped device, rather than a cylindrical rod. This will open up your eyes, and will give the appearance of longer lashes – without the need for extensions! The lift takes the same amount of time as a perm, but should last slightly longer.

If you still remain unsure about which procedure is best for you, our Arch Angels are specially trained in the art of lashes. They are always more than happy to discuss the different treatments with clients at any of our seven stores across Australia.
