Fluttery, wispy eyelashes are just what you need to brighten up your eyes and your look. If you’re tired of using your good ol’ curler and mascara to achieve this, then eyelash perming may be what you need.
It’s similar to curling the hair on your head permanently. It’s meant to keep a shape in place for a long period of time. The goal is to give your lashes a lift and curl. This is achieved through the use of chemicals.
Does eyelash perm damage your lashes?
Don’t mean to scare you or anything but there is a chance for the treatment to damage your lashes. But only if you get it done by someone who is inexperienced.
So if you’ve been thinking about doing it at home, you may want to reconsider. Doing it alone or even with a friend who’s not a professional is just not gonna cut it!
What is the difference between lash perm and lash lift?
They’re pretty much the same! They have the same goal but a lash lift is a bit more modern in terms of the chemicals and techniques used for the service.
A lash perm entails using a silicone shield to help shape the lashes. Chemicals are applied over the lashes to keep them curled and stay put.
How long will it last?
The effect of the treatment stays on for about six to eight weeks. You can safely perm your lashes again after that or you can let it stay untouched for a bit.
How much does it cost?
It depends on where you’re getting it done, but the range is from P600 (at Ooh La Lash) to P3,200.
