The Main Difference Between Eyelash Lift VS Lash Extension
Now that you know what these two services are at their core, let’s look at the main differences that might be your deciding factor.
life and maintenance
Eyelash Lifts can last from 4 to 6 weeks, depending on how fast your natural lashes grow, fall out, etc. On the other hand, Eyelash Extensions can last about 3 to 4 weeks without maintenance, but with regular maintenance, they can last indefinitely. Compared to eyelash lifters, Lashes Extension require more care and maintenance. Generally, we recommend a re-lash or maintenance appointment every 2-4 weeks. This maintenance can make the look you get from the service last longer than an eyelash lifter. Eyelash lifts require you not to touch them or apply mascara for at least a few days after the treatment. They require a 24-48 hour setup period. After that, though, you can apply mascara as usual. With eyelash extensions, you don’t even need mascara as it adds length, volume and thickness! Bottom line: If you want to get something once and never have to think about it, a lash lift is the way to go. However, if you want something longer lasting and don’t mind a little maintenance, go for lash extensions.

Use What You Have (…Or What You Don’t Have)
Eyelash lift only works on your natural lashes. So, if your lashes aren’t the fullest, they’re short, or you just don’t like them for some reason, an lash lift might not give you the results you want. Remember: lash lifts don’t actually add any length or volume. If that’s what you’re looking for, then you’re better off going for eyelash extensions. But, on the other hand, if you like natural lashes and just want to lift them a little, then an eyelash lift is perfect for you. Eyelash extensions physically add artificial Lash Extensions to your natural lashes. Your natural lashes are still part of the look, but just interspersed with new extensions. This is great for people with sparse or short natural lashes to take their lashes to the next level!
There are also ample opportunities for eyelash extensions to be customized to your specific needs. You and your lash stylist can determine the color, length, thickness and curl of the mascara to create the perfect look for you. You can’t easily do this with an eyelash lift, something to keep in mind when choosing between the two. You can always pair an eyelash lift with an eyelash coloring service for more color.
