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!
