Well look no further, because we’ll be answering everything you could possibly wish to know about Yumilashes, so you too can become a lashpreneur (You can thank us later!)
What is a Yumi lash lift?
A Yumi lash lift is the antidote for false lashes; founded by Swiss derma pigmentologist Sandra Viglino. Sandra’s clientele in Geneva demanded a lash lift that instantly boosted the lashes, whilst still looking natural and required little maintenance. A few months of hard work (and probably a lot of coffee) the Yumi lash lift was finally born. A Yumi lash lift is a quick and easy treatment, that curls, tints and lifts your own natural lashes. The treatment uses Keratin and has therefore being branded ‘a perm for the lashes’ without the harsh chemicals. So no need for mascara and eyelash curlers!
How did you come up with the name ‘Yumi?’
Sandra loved the Far East because of their innovative beauty techniques which is why she chose the name ‘Yumi’ as it means ‘beautiful’ if it is used for a girl’s name in Japan. It also has a second meaning, which is ‘bow’ as in bow and arrow- which is represented in our logo as the YUMI bow is the longest bow in the world.
How long does a Yumi lash lift last?
As with everything, the results are different for everyone; however, the results can last between 8-12 weeks. Yep, you read that right ladies: up to 3 months without fiddly false lashes or mascara! The lashes work with your natural growth cycle, however the results can be affected by stress, hormonal changes and lifestyle. For longer lasting results we recommend Yumilashe’s keratin lash lift mascara each morning and evening after receiving your treatment. The mascara is clear and therefore can be used on your eyebrows too, meaning you get 2 products in 1- result!
Can I have the Yumilash treatment?
Here at Yumilash we do not discriminate against anybody getting a lash lift treatment, however for safety reasons there are certain things which would prevent/effect you from being able to receive the treatment, these include:
