Is a lash perm better than using a lash curler? SELF Magazine tries Eyelash Perm
Surprisingly, the process didn’t hurt at all. I thought there would be more pulling on the lashes, but it was incredibly gentle from start to finish.
The curve was really natural looking, and there was not a single lash left behind. Every hair curved up evenly, which is nearly impossible to achieve with just mascara or even a eyelash curler.
My lashes were so curly that it gave the opposite of the lengthening effect I was going for. But if you use an eyelash curler religiously, I’d suggest trying a lash perm to shave time off your morning makeup routine.
SHIZUKA new york Day Spa’s Eyelash Perm is proven to create a lasting curl in the most gentle way possible. Especially if you have straight lashes, you’ll be surprised how much of a difference you can see.
We have 3 options for eyelash treatment. Eyelash Perm, Eyelash Extensions, and Eyelash Tinting. Each treatments are customizable to enhance your eye impression.

Tips to keep your lashes looking perfect longer
Consult a Professional
Get a professional consultation before getting eyelash extensions affixed to your natural lashes. You want to make sure you get the best look for your buck! Let Kim Kardashian have her own look, let’s find you yours! By assessing the condition of your natural lashes, a licensed esthetician will help you decide on the best curl and length for your ultimate beauty enhancement.
Keep Lashes Dry
Eyelash glue can take up to two days to firmly bond to your natural lashes so avoid getting them wet as much as possible. Be sure to protect them while showering and washing your face and completely avoid activities like swimming and those that involve excessive sweating like using saunas and working out. If you go in the water, wear goggles to protect those lashes.
Gently Remove Makeup
Use makeup removal wipes to gently remove makeup from the eye area. Avoid using cotton balls or pads as cotton fibers can get stuck in lashes and make them fall out sooner. A little extra care everyday can extend the life of your lashes in the long run.
Most mascaras will interfere with eyelash glue lessening their bond to the eyelash extension. Mascara, especially oil-based ones, can be difficult to remove which can further weaken and limit the life of the eyelash extension. Added benefits of getting eyelash extensions include giving mascara and eyelash curlers some time off. Enjoy it!
Reset and go!
You’re bound to get eyelashes wet in the shower or after cleansing your face. When this happens simply reset them by combing them gently with an eyelash comb and blow dry them with a hairdryer set on its coolest setting. Using hot air will further weaken the eyelash extension adhesive.
Sleep on your back
Sleeping on your stomach or on your side can cause eyelash extensions to bend awkwardly throughout the night making them difficult to deal with in the morning. In order to protect lashes during slumbering hours, sleep on your back instead.
If there was ever a season for makeup woes, summer would be it.
Between sudden rainy downpours, sweltering sweaty afternoons, and even wayward splashes from poolside cannon balls, applying makeup, especially mascara, can become a real chore.
Luckily for some, there are three spa treatments that may make you give your mascara a summer vacation of its own.
An eyelash perm curls your lashes semi-permanently, giving your eyelash curler a rest for 4-6 weeks. Technicians wrap your lashes around tiny rollers (think eyelash sized hair rollers) and apply a chemical solution to induce the curl. The entire treatment takes about an hour. A pro to perms is you get to choose the size the curl. A tight curl will give your eyes a more dramatic & glam look while a looser curl will look more natural.
Tinting solutions range from auburn to blue black and will give your lashes the look of mascara (but without the clumps). Just like the perm, this treatment lasts 4-6 weeks as well.
If giving your lashes the chemical treatment just isn’t your thing, another alternative worth trying is Eyelash Extensions. Extensions combine the look of a perm and tint, making your lashes look longer, fuller, and curlier. False lashes are affixed to your real ones with a special glue holding them in place until they fall out naturally.

Besides opening up the look of your eye, lashes actually serve a function to protect the eyes, keeping them free from foreign agents and debris. Regular lash care keeps them healthy and strong while making your eyes “pop”!
Here are 7 easy tips to keep in mind for naturally stronger fuller lashes:
1. Rub eyes delicately if you really have to. Lash roots are extremely delicate so any scratching or rubbing can actually weaken lashes causing them to break.
2. Stay away from lash roots when using an eyelash curler. You know you’ve gone too far when you pinch or tug the eyelid.
3. Remove all mascara gently with make-up remover before going to sleep.
4. Comb through lashes to remove clumps of mascara as soon as it’s applied and don’t tug lashes. If the mascara has already dried a bit, apply a bit of make-up remover to the comb until the clumps are removed and lashes separate.
5. Throw away old mascara. It’s ideal to renew your mascara every 6 months. The likelihood for germs and bacteria increases the longer you keep it.
6. Replace any eye makeup used during an eye infection, including pink eye.
7. Condition lashes regularly. Just like your hair, lashes need to be conditioned as well. You can purchase eyelash conditioners over-the-counter that will help fortify and moisturize your lashes. Conditioners are especially recommended between any chemical treatments like eyelash perms.
