The sad truth is many Asians tend to have super straight lashes that point downwards, and don’t take to curling well. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has spent many a morning trying to crimp a curl into my lashes with little to no success. And while using a curler and mascara does help, more often than not the effects start to wane by late afternoon.
If you’re blessed with naturally curly lashes, you’re probably wondering, “what’s the big deal?” Well, for one they tend to make you look more feminine, and secondly (and more importantly), curled lashes make your peepers appear bigger and brighter.
To try to wrangle my stubby and stubborn lashes into a curl, I’ve tried dozens of different curlers and mascara bases. But in my pursuit of getting fast, fuss-free and effective, I actually came across a treatment that worked better than any other product I’ve ever used.
The Browhaus Lash Curl Up ($75) is a 45-minute treatment that helps to “perm” your lashes to a semi-permanent curl. No heat is used in the process and it’s suitable even for sensitive skin. The best thing about it is you can specify the type of curl you want to your therapist. I’ve tried both a more dramatic lift and a more subtle, gentle curl and definitely preferred the former. You not only get more bang for your buck, but as mascaras can also weigh down your lashes, a more intense curl will let you see a more visible result.
I’ve tried the treatment a couple of times and found that the effects usually last for about two to three months, depending on the strength of the curl. And while it doesn’t weaken your lashes to the point you see strands dropping, Browhaus does recommend that you use a lash serum or conditioner after the treatment.
