I see how eyelash perming could sound enticing: You'd have perfectly flipped-up lashes 24-hours a day, no eyelash curler required. The way it works is that your lashes are treated with a special glue, and then wrapped around a mini sponge-y roller. While holding your eyes tightly shut, the perming solution is applied to the upturned lash, and then it is left to set for about five minutes.

We've heard all about lash extensions for length, but eyelash perms are strictly for curl. The Japanese Eyelash Perm, offered at salons such as Takamichi Head to Toe Hair Salon in New York City, is becoming a popular way to have semi-permanent, flirty lashes.
The procedure can take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes, it costs around $80 and lasts between three to five weeks. To begin, your lashes get curled over rubber rollers. Then, chemical solutions are applied; and finally, your lashes get a conditioning. This sounds just like a perm! Considering that false eyelashes take at least eight to 10 minutes to apply and another five to take off, I think the investment is time-efficient. Would you ever consider a lash perm?
