Lash Extensions vs Lash Lift

Lash Extensions vs Lash LiftIf you are looking to get much fuller and longer eyelashes with added volume, eyelash treatment could be your answer! Eyelashes are considered to be one of the best ways that you can frame your eyes and enjoy looking younger and more vibrant. There are two main treatments that have become popular for enhancing the look of eyelashes. Here are the differences between lash extensions vs lash lift. 

Eyelash extensions:

An eyelash extension can make lashes look longer and fuller. They use a medical grade adhesive to add additional lashes to your existing natural lashes. This will add length and volume to the lashes.

Lash Lifts:

A lash lift involves the process of firming your natural lashes to crawl them and make them appear much fuller and longer. Lash lifts can enhance your current natural lashes without having to add any extensions.

Advantages and disadvantages:

Advantage of Lash lifts:

This style of eyelash treatment is much more natural and manageable. They only require maintenance every 8 to 12 weeks and they can really help you tame your natural eyelashes without adding additional ones.

Disadvantage of Lash lifts:

If you have lashes that are too short, you may be very limited in the difference that a Lash lift will make. If this is the case then you may want to consider applying lash extensions.

Advantage of eyelash extensions:

This can be one of the most dramatic changes that someone can make to their looks. It’s a very dramatic look and it can be the perfect option for a wedding or event.

Disadvantage of eyelash extensions:

They need to be applied by a professional artist and they often can look clumpy if they are applied incorrectly. It is super important to make sure that you are going to a lash artist that is properly trained and experienced in application!

How to choose between the two treatments:

Understand the type of look that you want as well as how much maintenance you would like to do for each treatment. Lash lifts last for a few months whereas extensions may require maintenance every few weeks. If you wanted a particularly striking look, extensions are always going to be the better option.
