DIFFERENT EYELASH EXTENSIONS & STYLES
What is the difference between Classic, Russian & Hybrid Eyelash Extensions?
In short, Classic Lashes only have 1 lash extension per 1 of your own lashes, Volume Lashes have 3-7 lash extensions per 1 of your own lashes and Hybrid Lashes have between 1-7 lash extensions per 1 of your own lashes.
There are other differences such as the thickness, weight and curve. For example, Russian Volume Technique uses the thinnest & lightest lash extensions (but a lot of them!), which is why this look is sometimes referred to as being ‘fluffy’. On the other hand, Classic Lashes are significantly thicker and heavier, but a smaller amount of them is used.
You can read more about each of the techniques on their respective pages which you can find here.
What is the difference between a Full Set and an Infill appointment?
Full Set appointment is your very 1st lash appointment. It simply means that there are no current extensions and a full set of lash extensions will need to be applied.
As for the infills – these are the appointments that take place every 2-3 weeks since your last appointment to fill in the gaps and replace the extensions on the outgrown lashes.
How long will the lashes last?
Your natural lashes are replaced by new lashes every 6-8 weeks and with them some of your extensions will fall out. By the 3rd or 4th week from your last appointment around half of your lashes have been replaced with new ones – meaning the old ones have by now fallen out or have just grown out and look uneven in length.
This means that you need to go in for an infill to fill in the gaps and remove the outgrown extensions.
How often do I need infills?
Best timeframe to follow would be 2-3 weeks from your last appointment. It is important that you come for your infill appointment before the halfway point of your lash growth cycle of 6-8 week. The halfway point is when too many lashes have fallen or grown out, so too many extensions will have to be redone and we will need to consider the appointment as a Full Set, not an Infill.
What happens if I don’t come in for infills at the right time and too many of my extensions have fallen or grown out?
If your infill appointment is more than 4 weeks from your last appointment, many of the lash extensions will have grown out or fallen out and your appointment will need to be considered a new Full Set – you will be charged the full fee of a Full Set of extensions.
