We go to all lengths to get thick lustrous eyelashes, possibly try all types of different mascaras, curl tools, fake eyelashes, lash tinting, eyelash extensions and more. What are the different options and what works best for you?
What’s a lash lift? Lash lifts are one of the latest techniques and are also described as a perm for your lashes. The process takes about an hour and lasts up to about 8 weeks. Unlike the extension, the process uses just your lashes. The lashes are softened and reset with an upward, soft “C” shape. In addition, eyelash color can be added to the service to darken light eyelashes. Imagine, eyelashes are perfect all day and will stay beautifully shaped even when wet. No mascara needed, but if you want a want to add a little more volume, enhance them, be dramatic for a night out or special occasion – yes you can apply mascara on these beautiful lashes!
Lash tinting is perfect for the eyes that have full lashes but are very light in color. Adding a tint brings out the eyes without having to add mascara. You can learn about lash tinting on our FAQs page or watching our video on Eyelashes.
Individual Lash Extensions can be made of a variety of synthetic, as well as natural, materials. At Hair Base Salon & spa we work with 5 different lash types. The success of an extension service depends on several factors: The technicians that perform the service, the length and strength of your lashes, and the selection of the most appropriate lash material for your individual needs. Our trained technicians will do just that. Select lashes are individually bonded onto your natural lashes with a medical grade adhesive. They can last for six to eight weeks and fall out naturally like a regular lash. We recommend scheduling an exam with one of our trained technicians to determine length, type, and size for your lashes. If you are hesitant or curious – we offer a trial run. For a modest fee, we can put a few lashes on the outside corners of your eyelashes and you can test them out before committing to the complete service.
Flare and Strip Eyelashes
Flare individual lash clusters are permanently curled, waterproof, and a quick way to get a dramatic look. They are generally half the price of individual eyelash extensions and will last a few days. Great for a weekend of social activities.
Strip lashes have been around for a solid century. During the 1920s strip lashes became a popular fashion trend, and today they come in a variety of lengths, materials and densities. With strip lashes you can add a small amount of volume or go crazy with a dramatic look. This is a great way to dress up your eyes for that special night out on a budget.
Mascara has been around since the Egyptians; however, our current use of mascara began with cake mascara in 1917. The purpose of mascara and all these other techniques is to enhance the eyes, bringing the focus to one of the most expressive elements of our faces.
We carry Blinc, (normal and amplified formulas) and Papillonwhich was specifically created for eyelash extensions. Blincmascara is designed to encase each lash in a water-proof tube to add volume and length without running, smudging, clumping or flaking…The number one recommended mascara for brides. No eye makeup remover needed. It is easily and cleanly removed with warm water and gentle pressure.
