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?


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 select, we will then apply between 60–120 natural lashes per eye during this service.

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

Before your first application, your stylist will take you through a personalized consultation. You’ll share a little about the lash design you have in mind, as well as your lifestyle. You’ll get to flip through our Lash Catalog to see examples of all of the gorgeous options 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 2–3 hours to apply, but it can vary slightly based how many natural lashes you have, the application method and lash look 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!

lash smarter with a lash lounge membership for full refills


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

Here’s the scoop: A lash fill 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.


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