How Often Should You Get a New Set of Lash Extensions?

Women who take care of their maintenance and are regular at the eyelash studio will always have a great set of extensions. It is recommended to get a new, fresh and complete series every 5-6 months. This is because your natural eyelashes have a life cycle that lasts 2-3 months. During this time, your lashes will grow and shed naturally, taking the extensions with them.

To maintain a complete and cohesive appearance, it is important to visit the studio to recharge regularly. If you want to save money, it's better to stick with a complete set than a refill. Most eyelash extension technicians recommend that you refill your eyelashes every 2-3 weeks. However, you can wait up to 4 weeks depending on the retention, maintenance of the eyelash extensions and the skin care products you use.

To keep your eyelash extensions in perfect condition, you should gently brush them with a sponge from time to time and then apply a conditioning serum. When it comes to refills, most eyelash technicians require that you have at least 40% of extensions left over for eyelash filler; otherwise, they'll be considered a complete set. The price of eyelash filler depends on many factors, such as the time elapsed since the previous application and the number of extensions you have left. Over time, it is recommended that you buy a new set of extensions rather than fillers. By the time you reach six weeks, most of your lashes will have come off naturally, so you'll definitely need a new set. But if you're new to the world of eyelash extensions, you'll want to have a “complete set” of eyelashes the first time you enter The Lash Lounge.
