LVL lashes London stands for length, volume, and lift. You may see one of these three on every good mascara in the market. However, it’s rare all three will appear together because that would be crazy. Imagine a product that could lengthen, volumize, and lift at the same time?! Some products might claim to do all three, but if that is true, every woman on the planet would use it. There may not be a mascara capable of all three, but there’s something called LVL Lashes and it can quite literarily do all three things.
So, if you want an LVL lash treatment that combines both an eyelash perm and an eyelash tint treatment in London, look no further than Cutify. At Cutify you’re guaranteed to find the best beauty services in London.
Here is all you need to know about LVL lashes London
How are LVL lashes done?
The first step is understanding whether you can actually have the treatment or not. Technicians are very careful when it comes to the safety of the client as this treatment concerns a delicate area which is the eye. So they will need to patch test your skin with various chemicals and dyes before treatment. The patch test will check for redness, irritations, and itching. If you have no reaction after the test, then you’re good to go!
You will be laid comfortably on a table with your head on a neck pillow, a headband to your forehead and a hair net applied over your hair. This is the point where you will have your lashes cleansed with eye makeup remover and cotton pads. Protein remover pad is also used to clean the lashes to ensure no oils or residue are present.
Protecting the lower lashes
To ensure the lower lashes don’t get caught in the curling procedure, under-eye treatment pads are applied over the lower lashes. The under-eye treatment pads are sticky, comfortable, and light, ensuring the lower lashes are pressed down to the skin whilst the treatment goes on.
There are three shield sizes-small, medium, and large. Discuss the best size for you with your stylist, but generally, it relates to the length of your lashes and your desired end result. In most cases, the medium shield is the ideal size as it works for the majority of lash types. The small shield is known to have a more intense lifting effect and is often used on those with short eyelashes. In the case of the large shield, it is often used for those who want a more subtle lift and is great for those with natural lash curls.
After the shield has been applied, the main procedure can now begin. The stylist will apply a light layer of bonding gel to the shield then press the eyelashes back onto the gel with a small metal. This pulls each of your lashes backward to stick them to the shield thereby forming the curve.
With all the lashes neatly bonded, the stylist will now apply a lifting balm. The balm help breakdown the disulfide bonds in the hair, that determines their shapes. This will enable the stylist to be able to change the shape and structure of the hair during a later application. The gel is applied to the eyelashes and not to the wet line of the eye. The gel is then allowed for 10 to 14 minutes depending on the hair type. While waiting for the gel to be lifted, the stylist will often treat you to a neck and hand massage as a relaxing way to pass time.
Here, a yellowish cream is applied in the same way as the balm but this time, to repair the disulfide bonds in the lashes and fixing them into place in the shape you want them. AKA, the curved shield shape. This is left on the eyelashes for about 7 minutes.
The tinting process is the final treatment. Tinting the eyelashes gives them a greater depth in color – turning brown or blond lashes into a dark and fluttery look. You can opt for any kind of black shade you want like the blue/black shade or if you don’t wear mascara often, a brown/black shade will be more subtle. The tint is usually allowed for 3 to 5 minutes.
By now the lashes will have taken on the shape of the curved shield, and beautifully tinted as well. The technician will use a mini brush to remove excess dye from the lashes then a moisturizing serum will be applied to the lashes to ease the lashes away from the bonding gel on the shield. This also helps in re-nourishing the lashes after treatment. The technician will lift your lashes gently from the shield to reveal your curled lashes, and finally, the shield is removed from your eyelid. The treatment is complete.
For at least the first 48 hours you’re not allowed to wet the area because water can loosen the curls. Using mascara for the first two days is a bad idea, but come to think of it, you won’t want or need to because your lash will look perfect. When removing your eye makeup go gently on the lash area for the first few days after your lash treatment so you don’t end up removing the lash. Instead of dragging cotton pads along your eye in the name of removing your eye makeup, why not just press it onto the eye and hold for about 10 seconds.
How long do LVL lashes last?
The lashes should last between 6 to 8 weeks. However, certain things can cut this time short. The use of skincare products and oils in your makeup can reduce the lifespan of your new lashes and you should avoid them at all cost. Also, eyelash curlers or perming equipment should also be avoided for the same reason. Don’t manipulate your lashes much — if at all — and you should brush through them with a spoolie whenever you get them wet.
