How often should you get a new full set of lashes?

Women who can take care of their maintenance and who are regular in the eyelash studio will always have a beautiful complete set. This means that you should reserve your refills every 2 or 3 weeks to maintain the result. It is recommended to make a new, fresh and complete series only every 5-6 months. Your natural lashes have a life cycle.

Over the course of 2 to 3 months, your lashes will grow and then fall out naturally. When the eyelashes fall out, the extension that is attached to them comes off along with them. All of your lashes go through this cycle at different stages, so it's normal to lose eyelashes regularly. And this natural life cycle is why it's important to visit us for regular supplies to maintain a complete, cohesive look.

Most eyelash extension technicians recommend filling in your lashes every 2 to 3 weeks. Sometimes, you can wait longer, even up to 4 weeks, depending on retention, the maintenance of the eyelash extensions, and the skin care products you use (more on that later). Once your customer has a full set of eyelash extensions, they'll need to come periodically to fill them in. If you fill the set continuously, it is inevitable that there will be some dirt, oil or product residue between the eyelashes.

A full set of eyelash extensions usually takes 2 to 3 hours to apply, but may vary slightly depending on the number of natural lashes you have, the method of application, and the appearance of eyelashes you choose. This is completely normal and maintaining a regular and timely routine of alternating between full sets and refills will ensure that your eyelashes always look their best. To achieve the best possible adhesion and prevent too much adhesive from accumulating on the eyelash line, a new set of extensions will be needed after filling in or two. As long as you follow the time guidelines between a full session and a refill appointment, your eyelashes should have a density of between 70 and 100% or more, compared to a full session after this appointment.

With two sets of tweezers, grab a natural eyelash with one clip and an extension with the other, then gently pull them apart vertically in two directions. In general, it is best to perform a refill service when the customer has at least 40% of the eyelash extensions left in the entire set. If you're new to the world of eyelash extensions, you'll want to have a “full set” of lashes the first time you walk into The Lash Lounge. The number of refills applied in a procedure is fixed and represents 50% of the number of tabs in a complete set, so this service costs less.

However, some eyelash artists find it easier to remove all of their remaining lashes and start a new series at the cost of filling them in.
