Lash Services: Saves Time In Your Busy Day By Letting A Trained Technician Do The Work

If you’re like me, you find yourself nearly always on the go. Between work or school, a social life, and trying to get enough sleep, there never seems to be quite enough time in the day. As a result of this constant business, I like to pursue all different kinds of convenient time-savers. Whether it is a portable breakfast or a time-efficient (but still beautiful) hairstyle, I’ve tried it all. One of my favorite indulgences that have saved the most time in my day, however, is getting my lashes done.

I never quite noticed just how much time I spent on my makeup in the morning until that time was significantly cut down by having a lash expert take care of me. For many people, doing their makeup in the morning is a ritual that helps to set the mood for a wonderful and productive day. After all, BlinkBar knows that if you look good, you feel good. 

Getting my eyelashes properly curled, full, and voluminous every morning always took longer than I expected, and the results would often look somewhat different from day-to-day. This is why I first looked into a delightful lash lift treatment before eventually getting lash extensions. While I adored the enchanting results, the amount of time I saved on a daily basis was what really made me decide lash services were perfect for me.

If you think having your lashes done could be a gorgeous and convenient option for you, keep reading. This article will lay out some of the different kinds of lash treatments you could explore and look into, as well as the biggest advantages to having lash professionals pamper you and take care of your lashes.

Different Kinds of Professional Lash Treatments

As mentioned before, there are several different lash treatments out there for you to consider. Determining which of these treatments is best for you will depend on your lash goals, as well as your desired amount of upkeep and how much time and money you want to spend. Each has a different price point and time before you need another treatment, so really do your research and consider all of the available information.

While all of these options will help you to save a significant amount of time, the exact looks that they can give you are a bit different. Without further ado, here is a brief summary of the various available lash services and what you can expect from each:

Lash Extensions

Lash extensions are perhaps the most glamorous and striking of all the options on this list. While lash lifts and lash tints only use and enhance your natural eyelashes by affecting their shape or color, lash extensions actually add more hairs to increase fullness. Your lash technician will carefully apply individual hairs to your natural, pre-existing lashes with a strong adhesive for a full set of lightweight, luscious lashes. It’s safe for sensitive eyes, and the results are truly unbeatable. 

The lash application process is often a very calming and relaxing one, considering you close your eyes for approximately two hours and allow a lash artist to craft a look perfect for you. Due to the precision and attention to detail the treatment requires, lash extensions can cost about $100 to $200. If you dream of totally luscious, luxurious lashes, eyelash extensions are a fabulous option. In fact, they will likely give you more dramatic and intense results than the other items on this list.

That said, these results can be more or less dramatic for specific people. If you want a look that is a bit more on the natural side, you can speak with your lash tech and choose hairs that will give you exactly what you are looking for. If you want to go all out with the fullest, fluffiest lashes, there are plenty of options for that as well. Everyone is going to be jealous of how those lashes fan out. 

The amount of time classic lash extensions will last depends on a variety of factors, including your individual lash growth cycle (which is different for everybody), how well you follow various after-care instructions, and whether you are consistent in getting your lashes touched up. 

You’ll have to be careful about what kind of eye makeup removers you use, as well as what eye cream, cleansers, and lotions are touching your lashes. If left entirely on their own with proper care, most people find that all of their lashes fall out at approximately four to six weeks. 

However, this total time can be extended by getting lash fills as recommended by your lash stylist. What are lash fills, you wonder? Well, I’m glad you asked.

Lash Fills

Lash fills are what you get to fill in any sparseness leftover by natural fall-out that occurs after getting extensions. Typically, it is recommended that you get these touch-ups every two to three weeks after first getting your extensions, but this again depends on your specific lash growth cycle. Be sure to ask your technician for their sage advice when it comes to how to make your lashes their very best.

During a lash fill appointment, your lash specialist will look at how your extensions are holding up and apply fresh hairs and lash glue to any spots on your lash line with growing sparseness. This evens out your look and makes your lashes look consistent and beautiful. During the appointment, extensions that are about to fall off due to the adhesion agent loosening may be removed manually to keep your natural lashes healthy. 

Lash fills generally cost under $100, which is significantly less than your initial eyelash extension appointment. This is because a lash fill is a less detailed process, as it is only about filling in several spots on your lashes rather than starting with your natural hairs alone. Also, a consultation is not necessary on the same scale as it is when first getting extensions applied. Since it is a simpler process, getting lash fills done typically takes in the vicinity of an hour.

Lash Lifts

A lash lift uses your natural eyelashes to enhance your beauty, as opposed to adding in new hairs. The process of a lash lift can essentially be looked at as a type of “eyelash perm.” A solution with a perming ingredient is applied to your lashes that allows your technician to retrain their curl pattern. Then, your lashes are moved more vertical, and another solution is applied to keep them curled in that direction for a more natural look.

Many people find that lash lifts are tremendously time-saving if they like to curl their eyelashes. This is because a lash lift is pretty much a long-term eyelash curl, so the need to treat eyelashes on a daily basis is either largely diminished or entirely eliminated. Lash lifts are a more economical option than lash extensions, as they typically cost about $75 to $100, and results last for about six weeks. For heightened results, lash lifts are often paired with a lash tint.

Lash Tints

Where a lash lift is the perfect replacement for eyelash curling, a lash tint is like the best mascara you will ever use. Lash tints work wonders for those with naturally lighter lashes, as they are a semi-permanent darker dye that lasts for about four weeks. The dye stays on your lashes, but your lashes will grow and fall out depending on your lash cycle.

This is also the most budget-friendly option, as lash tints typically cost in the range of $50 to $75.

Mornings Become So Much Easier

Now that we have gone over the various different types of lash services you can indulge in, let’s move on to just how they can help you in your day-to-day life. 

After I got lash extensions for the first time, I was expecting to have some added convenience in my day, but I was shocked at just how tremendous it really was. I never noticed just how much time I spent doing my makeup to make my eyelashes look exactly how I wanted them. Now, I can just roll out of bed with my lashes looking pristine, full, and feathered and go about my day.

You can use this extra time to sleep, make a nice breakfast, or stare at yourself in the mirror for a little while, admiring your gorgeous, luscious lashes. It is completely up to you. That is the biggest benefit of having your lashes professionally done, no matter the route you decide to take. 

It can be so difficult to make your eyelashes look exactly how you want them every day. Having your lashes done professionally ensures that your lashes will always be perfect, and hopefully, that will give an added boost to your day.

If you’re feeling truly luxurious, you can pair your lashes with an eyebrow treatment like a microblading, lamination, or a brow tint, so you truly can roll out of bed ready to go. 

Beautiful Lashes, Beautiful You

Not only does getting your lashes done give you a delightful lash studio experience where you get to be pampered like absolute royalty, but the results last for weeks and make your days speedier and more beautiful. In addition, you get to save money on makeup, as many elements of your lash routine will be either lessened or will no longer be necessary at all.

Whether you think lash extensions and lash fills, a lash lift, or a lash tint (or any combination of them) would be best for you, there is something in the world of lashes for everyone.
