How do you know if you need a fill or new set eyelash extensions?

For best results, we recommend that refills be applied within three weeks of using the original full set. Outside of this three-week period, a complete set will represent better value for money. Only one or two eyelash fillers are recommended for each new set of eyelash extensions. This is to keep eyelashes healthy and maintain a full and voluminous appearance.

Once your customer has a full set of eyelash extensions, they'll need to come in periodically for a refill. Eyelash extension fillers are simply new eyelashes that are placed over natural lashes when the old ones are about to fall out. Since eyelashes are only applied to certain areas and not along the entire lash line, it's not as long a process as a full set of extensions. This means that the bond is not as strong and residues will build up in the hair follicle, which is not ideal for eyelash health.

Using two sets of tweezers, grab a natural eyelash with one tweezer and an extension with the other, then gently separate them vertically in two directions. Eyelash extensions are designed to last the entire natural eyelash cycle, that is, the time it takes for eyelashes to grow and fall out. By the time you reach six weeks, most of your lashes will have come off naturally, so you'll definitely need a new set. It is necessary to fill in the eyelashes because, over time, the eyelash extensions will fall out with the natural eyelash growth cycle.

Both services start by removing long or oversized eyelash extensions, and then replacing and applying new extensions. 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 better. The number of refills applied in a procedure is fixed and will amount to 50% of the number of eyelashes in a complete set, so this service costs less. For your eyelash extensions to look their best, it's important to keep your natural eyelashes in the best possible health, as they are the foundation on which extensions are built.

To achieve this, your eyelash technician will give you recommendations at each visit about the ongoing care and maintenance of your eyelashes and natural eyelash extensions. The bond between the client's natural eyelashes and the eyelash extension weakens over time due to oil or other impurities.
