RELAXING A LASH LIFT

When would you perform this service?

Sometimes a lash lift may turn out curlier than the client likes. When this happens, you can relax the lash lift. This does come with the risk of potentially ''frying" the client's lashes though so if they already have brittle, fine, or blonde lashes, beware that relaxing a lash lift may leave them with crazy-looking fried lashes. This service should be performed rarely.

    • Ask the client to open their eyes.

    • If there is any burning or stinging, rinse the eyes again until all stinging is gone.
