Full, thick eyelashes are a glamorous beauty essential for many. You may be dreaming of having long eyelashes without having to layer on mascara or struggle with awkward falsies.

Lash lifts are described by many as a perm for lashes. They make your lashes look fuller, thicker, and longer. You may love lash lifts because you’re sensitive to make-up. Perhaps you love them because you wear contact lenses or play sports, especially swimming.

If you’ve ever wanted a lash lift, you’ll understand the importance of selecting the right salon with beauty specialists who can advise on the best type of lashes to go for.

In this article, we’ll outline the qualities to consider when choosing a lash lift professional, and share where to find the best in Canberra.

What makes a great lash lift salon?

Choosing the right lash lift salon will give you confidence that you’ll get a quality service that is pain-free, with longer-lasting and amazing-looking results.

It can be helpful to keep the following in mind when choosing a lash lift salon.

  • Experienced. Ask the lash lift salon how experienced their aestheticians are and what training they’ve had.
  • Cost. While price varies depending on the type of lash lift you’re after, you’ll won’t want to overpay. This is why you should check prices across at least a few salons.
  • Advice. Because it’s important to prepare for your lash lift before you have it done, you’ll want a beautician who can give clear instructions. The same applies to immediate after-care and long-term lash care.
  • Range. Not all salons provide all lash lift services. Some specialise in one or a few types. It’s best to ask about what each salon offers before you choose.
  • Hygiene. Let’s face it. Lashes are connected to your eyes and eyes can be sensitive. As with any beauty treatment, choose a salon that’s clean, neat and tidy. This is the only way to avoid getting an infection or other treatment problem.
