Yes, it does! The Slylash utilizes an ancestral Latino lash curling technique which has been used by Latinas for many years. As far as anyone knows, the technique began with thin metal spoons, and no one really knows when it started, but it is well known among latinas to be safe and effective. Those who master the technique are able to achieve dramatic and incredible results r which no other curling method is able to replicate. This is one reason why we claim the Slylash to be "the best way to curl your eyelashes".
