The Difference Between a Full Set and a Full…

Whether it’s your first time getting lash extensions or you’re a seasoned pro, we’re filling you in on the lingo around our lashes. First up: services. What is the deal with this “full set” you keep hearing about? And what’s up with refills?

WHAT’S A FULL SET?

If you’re new to lash extensions, you’ll want to get a “full set” of lashes the first time you come into The Lash Lounge. Yep, it’s the same terminology you’ve heard at the nail salon. When you get a full set, we’ll get you started with extensions by fully covering your lash line with long, lovely lashes! Depending on the lash level you’re after, we will then apply between 60–120 natural lashes per eye during this service.

Here at The Lash Lounge, we are not a “one size fits all” lash salon. We use our proprietary lash design technique that uses your natural features as our lash canvas. We’ll create a custom look unique to you…and only you. We have several different lash types, curls and fullness levels to choose from.

Before your first application, your stylist will take you through a personalized consultation. During this time, you will share a little about the lash look you have in mind, as well as your lifestyle. You’ll get to flip through our lookbook to see examples of all of the gorgeous options that are available. This will help you and your stylist determine the very best custom lash creation for you—one that is safe for and enhances your natural lashes.

A full set of eyelash extensions typically takes around two hours to apply, but it can vary slightly based on the number of your natural lashes, the application method and lash design you choose. This may sound like a long time, but when you think about it, this is detailed work! And, since both safety and quality are #1 in our book, we work diligently and carefully to maintain the integrity of your natural lashes while crafting your dream lash look!

WHAT’S A FULL REFILL?

Did you know that, with or without lash extensions, most of us lose 20–30% of our natural lashes every two weeks? It’s a fact! This is why we recommend going in for a refill every two to three weeks to ensure that your lash line stays looking fabulous and oh-so full.

Here’s the scoop: a full refill involves applying eyelash extensions on new hair growth (new lashes) to give your lash line a full and refreshed lease on life. Both of these services begin by removing any long or overgrown eyelash extensions followed by replacing and applying new extensions. A full refill includes 25–45 new extensions applied per eye to really nail that fullness factor. If more always equals better for you, you can also up the ante with 10, 20 or 30 extra lashes.

MAINTENANCE MAKES BEAUTIFUL!

So, what’s the easiest way to maintain that full lash look you’re totally obsessed with and keep up with your refill appointments? Two words: Gold Membership. Our Gold Membership program is just the ticket to not only keeping those two classic refill appointments scheduled (and less money out of your pocket), but also getting access to additional perks like 10% of all products and services.

The beautiful benefit of having this membership (other than your fabulous lashes, of course) is that you will be provided with a drastically simplified beauty routine, yet that showcases your stunning eyelash extensions on the regular!


Whether you want more of a natural lash look or you feel like going all out and ultra-glam, our stylists will work with you to design your dream lash look. After all, we are all about customization here at The Lash Lounge, whether it’s your very first full set or 100th refill.

Experiment, rock, repeat—all under the care of our expert stylists, who have your best YOU in mind!

What Guests Can Expect When They Visit The Lash…

If you have ever been thinking about visiting a place of business whether it’s a salon, spa, restaurant … anywhere, there’s always that question of “what can I expect?” Today on the TLL blog we’re sharing what you can expect at The Lash Lounge, from the atmosphere itself to after your first lash extension application.

Atmosphere

  • From the moment you walk through the doors to the moment you leave, you will enjoy a beautiful and inviting spa-like atmosphere.
  • The signature Lash Lounge colors blend beautifully throughout the salon from the front desk and guest area to the service areas themselves.
  • The plush blankets found on each bed adds a welcoming touch and creates an atmosphere where guests instantly know they can relax and feel pampered.

Consultation

  • At your first appointment for lash extensions, you will receive a personalized consultation with a trained stylist who will talk to you about the different lash looks, and show you different style and curl options.
  • Your stylist will also determine the length and density your natural lashes will be able to sustain.
  • Be prepared to answer some questions about your current beauty routine, allergies, etc.

Pre-Application Process

  • Once you and your stylist have determined your desired lash style, you are ready to lie down and relax.
  • Keep in mind that the first session for lash extensions can take approximately 90 minutes (or more) and you will have your eyes closed during that time.
  • Your stylist will apply tape and an eye pad under each eye. Why are they applying tape and eye pads? This helps keep the top lash line and bottom lash line separated during the service, which makes your top lashes more visible to your stylist.

Application

  • The application process itself begins by your stylist adhering one synthetic lash extension to one of your natural lashes with medical grade adhesive.
  • During the application, you will feel a very light touch to your lashes, which can feel like your lashes are occasionally being brushed … this is very relaxing!
  • While your stylist is working her lash magic, this is the time for you to just relax and take one of those dreamy lash naps you’ve been hearing all about!

End of Application + Results

  • When the application is complete, your stylist will observe your lashes and check to ensure they are symmetrical and full.
  • To speed up the drying process of the adhesive and curing your lashes immediately, your stylist may use a small blower. This will feel like a cool breeze on your eyes for just a few seconds.
  • When the application is complete, the tape and eye pads under your eyes will gently be removed. And now, drum roll please … it’s time to look at your luxurious, new lashes!

After Care

  • After your application, your stylist will share a few of the best ways to take care of your lashes and products to use to keep your lashes looking beautiful.
  • To keep your lashes looking full and fabulous, schedule a refill appointment within 2-3 weeks. A typical refill takes about an hour, so it’s a shorter process than your first application but still the perfect time for you to relax!

Our passion for lashes drives who we are and what we do. We are dedicated to providing the best Lash Lounge experience and want our guests to feel confident and cared for.
