Which Lashes are Best For Me?

There are so many different types of lash treatments to choose from and here at Betty Boo’s we offer 4 different types of lash treatments that work for different lifestyles, looks, budgets and effects. If you’d like some help in deciding your next lash treatment- read on!
An eyelash tint is the most basic lash treatment that we do. This treatment tints your lashes a colour of your choice- usually blueblack, black or brown and gives the impression of longer, darker lashes. It’s a quick treatment (takes around 20mins) and works best for people that have pale lashes. A tint lasts around 6-8 weeks and gradually grows out as your lashes grow and shed. As with most lash treatments, a patch test will need to be performed prior to the treatment.
LVL stands for Length, Volume and Lift and is made by a company called Nouveau. Nouveau are the best in the market for their products which is why we have decided to work with them. An LVL lash lift will curl your lashes upwards and tint them black giving you the appearance of length, volume and lift. This gives your lashes some oomph and a lovely look when you apply mascara. The treatment itself takes around 60-75mins, lasts 6-8 weeks and is very low maintenance. As with most lash treatments, a patch test will need to be performed prior to the treatment.
Party lashes are clusters of lashes that are attached to your own lashes using a weak glue. They give a fuller, thicker appearance and are perfect if you just want a low cost lash for a special occasion or a night out and take around 15mims to apply. Because they are heavy, they are designed to be removed at the end of the night so as to not cause damage to your own lashes. You can remove them by easing them off your own lashes using eye makeup remover.
Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extensions
These are the Rolls Royce of lash treatments and look and feel amazing. A fine lash in the length, thickness and curl of your choice is applied to each and every one of your own lashes giving you beautiful, thicker, longer lashes. We take eye shape, lash type and face shape into consideration when designing a bespoke set of lashes for you as we aim to enhance your best bits. This takes a lot of time and skill to apply a set of semi’s- up to 2.5hrs and they do require a bit of looking after to keep them at their best. You would return every 3 weeks for top ups which take around 1hr. They are generally hassle free, light weight and super effective with most people really loving the fact that they don’t need to wear eye makeup anymore. As with most lash treatments, a patch test will need to be performed prior to the treatment.
So there we have it! There are a couple more different types of lash treatments out there but these are the ones that we currently offer in the salon. Our eyes our one of our most important features and therefore should be treated with the upmost care and respect which is why we at Betty Boo’s are highly trained in our lash treatments and only offer you the best products.
