LASH EXTENSION INFILLS
In an infill appointment I will first check the condition of your lash extensions. Everyone’s lashes are different and the amount of care needed in an infill appointment depends on many things, such as lifestyle, genes, stress, aftercare, habits and even pregnancy. Hormones can play a big role here.
Lash Extension Infills
An average person has between 90-260 lashes per eye (upper lid) and I apply lash extensions on all of them.
Each eye sheds approximately 2-5 lashes per day. On average this is 3 lashes per eye, per day:
- In the first week you will lose 21 lashes per eye
- In the 2nd week you will lose 42 lashes per eye
- In the 3rd week you will lose 63 lashes per eye
To maintain a full look infills are needed every 2-3 weeks – you need to still have at least 40-50% of your lashes on for your appointment to qualify as an infill. If you have less than that left or your lashes are in poor condition, we might have to remove the remaining extensions and start from the beginning.
Please note that infills done more than 4 weeks after your last appointment are considered as a new full set.
Arriving to your appointment
Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your to fill up the entry form and prepare for the appointment. Please make sure you come without eye make-up, or if you happen to have some on I have to kindly ask to remove it.
We can change the styling of your lashes in every infill appointment. For example we can go from cat eye to doll look and vice versa, same with classic lashes to Russian volume and vice versa. Please keep in mind that it takes 2 appointments to see the full effect of the changed look. If you want to have new flawless styling at once, then I recommend removing your old extensions and starting with a new full set.
I start with removing all your grown out lashes first. If you come to an infill appointment and have only 40%-50% extensions left, some of them will have to be removed.
I will then clean your lashes with special lash shampoo to make sure there is no residue left and your lashes are well prepared for the application of your brand new extensions.
After that I will apply the extensions to your new natural lashes.
As much as I would love to chat to all my clients (I’ve made so many friends through doing this!), I will have to ask you to be quiet and still – for safety reasons. Adhesive likes humidity and your eyes are very moist, so it is important to make sure you don’t open your eyes – we don’t want any lash fumes getting into your eyes.
Infills take about 1.5 hours for Classic Lashes and 3 hours for Russian Volume Lashes.
