WILL THE LASH LIFT DAMAGE MY NATURAL LASHES?
No. Properly trained and skilled professionals ensure proper lash lift procedures are followed.
HOW LONG WILL THE LASH LIFT APPOINTMENT TAKE?
About 40 - 50 minutes depends on how long and coarse the eyelashes are and if your lashes will be tinted.
HOW LONG DO LASH LIFT & TINTS LAST?
A lash lift and tint can last anywhere between 6 to 10 weeks. Results may vary from client to client depending their lash growth cycle. There are some situations that may cause the lift to drop/weaken prematurely such as swimming, use off harsh products or heat. If you find that your lift does not last the full 2 months, you can repeat the treatment after a minimum of 4 weeks of having the initial treatment, but not before. (I find the sweet spot for needing a lash lift retouch is right at about 7 weeks!)
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET A LASH LIFT OR TINT?
A lash lift will begin to naturally drop after about 2 months and your lashes will be back to their natural look. The lashes should drop evenly and will not look out of place. You can repeat the treatment after a minimum of one month if you feel you need to, or you can wait until they are back to their natural state.
CAN I USE AN EYELASH CURLER?
No. There will be no need for an eyelash curler as this treatment gives a much better result than using a curler, But more importantly, using one may weaken and damage your lashes.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY EYES?
Gently, using mild and oil-free products. Always wait 24 hours to do this, straight after the procedure. There are suggested cleansers in salon for you to take home with you

Please plan to arrive 10 minute prior to your appointment time to update all necessary consultation forms and prepare for your appointment to begin on time. Please makeup sure to arrive without concealer, eye makeup (mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow etc.) on the day of your appointment. avoid curling your natural lashes with a lash curler and any use of lash growth serums for 24 hours prior to your appointment. Makeup removal will result in time being taken from lashing pleas be mindful of waterproof.
- USE A LASH SERUM. It's recommended to use a lash serum to help your lashes grow longer and strong. This will help give you amazing looking lashes
- MOISTURIZE your lashes with ELLEPLEX + ELLEEVATE is the only recommended mascara for the Elleebana Lash Lift Procedure
- DO NOT WET your lashes for 24 hours after the appointment
- DO NOT SLEEP with your face laid on the pillow. You must sleep on your back for 24 hours. Your lashes are prone to kinks within 24 hours after the procedure.
- DO NOT PULL your lashes. This can cause your natural lashes to fall out prematurely and cause both breakage and permanent damage to the hair follicle
- KEEP OIL OFF the lashes as oily products will cause the lashes to prematurely drop
NATURAL LASH GROWTH CYCLE
Eyelashes go through a three-phase growth cycle. Long, thick eyelashes are known as one of the most desirable features a person can have. Thousands of products are sold to enhance the look of lashes from mascara to lash conditioner to lash extensions. So, when you wake up in the morning and notice and eyelash or two that have fallen out and are resting on your cheeks, it can be a little unsettling. It's important to understand that this is a normal process, like every other hair on your body, eyelashes are perpetually moving through a natural growth cycle.
Eyelashes aren't just a pretty feature on the body; they have a very specific and important function. Eyelashes are designed to prevent objects from getting in the eyes. Each eyelash is actually a sensory hair that reflexively shuts the eyelid whenever it is touched by dirt, dust or anything else that could possibly get in the eye. The upper lid typically has about 90-150 lashes on it, while the bottom lashes have between 70-80 lashes. Most eyelashes grow to be 10mm long just 3/8 inch.
EYELASH AND HAIR GROWTH
Although it may not seem like it, hair growth is a present function of the body. Every hair on your body follows a three-phase growth cycle and eventually falls out, which is typically nothing to worry about.
ANAGEN (GROWTH) PHASE
The anagen phase is also called the growth phase. This is the phase when lashes are actively growing. It can last between 30-45 days. Only about 40% of the upper lashes and 15% of the lower lashes are in the anagen phase at any one time. Each will grow to a specific length and then stop. This is the phase is where growth serums come into play, the main and only function lash serums are capable are doing is keeping you in the growth phase longer, to promote longer and fuller lashes.
CATAGEN (TRANSITION) PHASE
The catagen phase is also known as the transition phase. During this phase, the lash stops growing and the hair follicle shrinks. If an eyelash falls out or is plucked during this phase, won't grow back right away because the follicle needs to complete the cartagen phase before it can move on to the next one. This phase lasts between two and three weeks.
TELOGEN (RESTING) PHASE
The telogen phase is also referred to as the resting phase. This can last more than 100 days before the eyelash falls out and a new one begins to grow. Each individual lash is in its own phase of the growing cycle, its normal for a few lashes to fall out most days. It typically takes between four to eight weeks to full replace and eyelash.
