Lash Extensions Vs Lash Lifts: Which Is Better for You?

We’ve all been there. You see a beautiful set of lashes and you wish you had them too. You can! If you are new to the world of lashes, you may feel overwhelmed by the many options to choose from. Lash extensions or lash lifts? What is the difference? Here is a breakdown of all the information you need to know to decide which treatment is best for you.


What is the process?

 Lash extensions are semi-permanent fibers that mimic the appearance of real eyelashes. They are designed with varying lengths and curl types. The extensions are applied one at a time and dipped in a nonirritating, specially formulated glue. Once dipped, the extensions are glued to each individual eyelash. We pride ourselves in creating natural-looking lash extensions while preserving the health and integrity of your natural eyelashes.

Lash lifts are a low maintenance solution for people who want an alternative to eyelash extensions as well as those who’s eyelashes grow straight or in a downward direction. It is also suitable for curly eyelashes that need to be tamed and reshaped. A lash lift is a semi-permanent treatment that works by lifting, curling, and lengthening your natural eyelashes to mimic the appearance of brighter, fuller, and wider eyes. This service consists of perming the natural eyelashes against a silicon pad to create a natural-looking lift and curl. All lash lifts include a jet-black lash tint and leave-on keratin treatment.


How long does it last?

The longevity of lash extensions vary from person to person as hair growth phases, lifestyle, and aftercare will affect retention. On average, results last approximately 2-3 weeks before a fill is needed. Comparatively, lash lift results last approximately 6-8 weeks.


How much does it cost? 

At Haven Esthetics, a full set of lash extensions costs $225. After your initial appointment, 2-3 week lash fills ranges from $80-120. Comparatively, a lash lift costs $110.


We hope that this guide will help you to understand the differences between lash extensions and lash lifts so that you can feel confident in deciding which option is best for you.
