What is the difference between lash perm and lash lifting?

Recently, we often come across the claim, even from professional cosmetic studies or stylists, that lash lifting is not the same as lash perm. Lash lifting is then something completely different or better and it is necessary to use different products when applying it. So how is lash lifting different from lash perm? The answer is simple - the differences between the products used in these two procedures are minimal.


Eyelash perm

Lash perm is an older variant of lash lifting. The lashes were curled using curlers of different sizes or special clips, and the lashes were curled more in an "L" shape. The disadvantage was the difficult application of products so that they did not reach the roots and ends of the lashes and also the difficult curling of the lashes in the corners of the eyes. In addition, in the case of delicate lashes, the ends of the lashes were crooked and in the case of longer lashes, their ends touched the eyelid.


Lash lifting

The biggest difference between lash lifting and lash perm is in used curlers. During lash lifting, special silicone pads are used, to which the lashes are glued one by one and then the products are applied to them. This makes lashes to curl in more natural - "C" shape and the product application more precise. Thanks to the curlers, it is easy to curl lashes in the corners of the eyes, but the overall application is more time-consuming compared to lash perm.



The products that actually cause the curl of the lashes are exactly the same for both lash perm and lash lifting. It is always at first a product that prepares the eyelashes for the next steps - cleans and opens the surface of the lashes, followed by the fixation product itself, thanks to which the lashes remain curled, and finally nourishing products are applied, thanks to which the lashes remain healthy and strong even after application. Lashes are not damaged during lash perm or lash lifting, they are only slightly dried and if nutrition is applied to them, curling has no negative effect on them. The step of dyeing eyelashes can be included in both procedures, it depends on the client's requirements.
