Eyelash perms: Bigger, brighter eyes — no makeup required!

The hair treatment that gave us mops of “Little Orphan Annie” curls can now be applied to your eyes. Rather than leaving you looking like an unkempt poodle, however, they promise weeks of curled lashes from the moment you wake up until your head hits the pillow again hours after last call.

Why would anyone get an eyelash perm?

Call it an optical illusion: Upturned eyelashes look longer than very straight ones. Putting a kink at the lashline of your fringe not only grants you fuller, longer-looking lashes; it helps you fake a wide-eyed doe look, too.

Whether you achieve the effect through the wave of your eyelash curling wand or an eyelash perm, comes down to your personal preference and convenience.

How long does it last?

The curl in your lashes will last anywhere from four weeks to three months. As your lashes grow and fall out (the life cycle of lashes is about 60 to 120 days), the effects become less noticeable.

How do eyelash perms work?

First, lashes are coated with a special adhesive and wrapped around mini foam or silicon rollers. This holds them in the curled position that you want to achieve. With your eyes shut, a specially formulated perming cream is applied to your eyelashes with a tiny brush. This solution is left to processed  for about five minutes. After the perming solution have taken full effect, on goes a neutralizing solution. You sit for another few minutes. This is rinced out and finally a conditioning oil is applied to nourish the lash for a perfect finish.
