Eyelash extensions will last 2 to 4 weeks on average. It's completely normal to lose a few lashes a day as natural lashes progress through the hair growth cycle. According to our research, most people prefer to book refills every 3 weeks (60.1%) to maintain a full line of lashes. Fillers are recommended every 3 weeks, but we all differ in hair growth and loss rates.
If you are a new customer who just had a full set, we strongly recommend that you refill it after 3 weeks, however, some customers will refill it after 4 weeks. Natural eyelashes are replaced with new eyelashes every 6 to 8 weeks and with them some of the extensions will fall out. By the third or fourth week after your last visit, about half of your eyelashes have already been replaced with new ones, meaning that the old eyelashes have already fallen out or have just grown and have an irregular length. Russian Volume eyelash extensions are created by applying prefabricated fans of 2 to 6 (or in some cases more) thin and light eyelash extensions to one of the natural eyelashes.
With classic eyelashes, a single extension is attached to a single natural eyelash; with the fan, the technician can apply a few extensions to a single tab to add volume; the hybrid is exactly what a combination of the two looks like. They are popular because they are customizable and look more natural than voluminous lashes, they are requested very often. It's important that you attend your filling appointment before the middle of your eyelash growth cycle, 6 to 8 weeks. A scarce set of extensions, of course, will require more time on the part of the eyelash artist to return your lashes to a complete and charming set.
Hybrid eyelash extensions adhere to natural lashes, so they follow their growth cycle and fall out with them. First, there were classic eyelash extensions, and then eyelash technicians found a way to make eyelashes look even thicker and fuller with voluminous eyelash extensions. Heat is also another factor, heat will cause your eyelashes to fall out faster, however, this is something that cannot always be avoided if, for example, you are on a hot vacation or live in a hot country. Before going to your hybrid eyelash appointment, it is advisable to remove all traces of makeup and come with completely clean lashes.
Eyelash technicians also recommend washing your hair before treatment, as you will be asked to avoid long showers and to use steam for 24 hours after treatment until the glue dries completely. On the other hand, classic lashes are significantly thicker and heavier, but a smaller number of them are used. Taking care of your eyelashes is the easiest way to ensure that you can stretch your fillers for as long as possible, and it's very easy to incorporate into your beauty routine. It can also cause problems with the consultation, since it can take up to half an hour for the eyelash artist to remove this build-up, which can affect subsequent appointments, since the eyelashes must be completely free of makeup and clean before a full series or filler.
As the extensions grow, the point where the extension attaches to the natural eyelashes weakens. This is what a classic pair of lashes should look like four to five weeks after the initial consultation, but if the eyelashes appear to be very sparse after just a few days, there may be an underlying problem.
