Lash Fill VS Full Set – Everything You Need To Know

What is a lash fill-in? Why do i need lash fills? How do they do eyelash fills? What is the difference between complete set and lash fill?

A lash fill-in is a service between a client’s monthly fills. This can be a great way to get more wear out of the lash extensions and keep them looking fresh. Whether your clients are preparing for a special occasion or simply want to elevate their everyday look, understanding the nuances between lash fills and full sets is crucial. That is why we’re here to help!

What Are Lash Fills And Full Sets?

Before we delve into the specifics, let’s clarify what we mean by lash fills and full sets. Full sets are the initial application of eyelash extensions, where individual lashes are attached to each natural lash, creating a complete transformation. This process is perfect for first-time clients or those who have let their lash extensions fully grow out and shed.

Lash fills, on the other hand, are maintenance appointments. These sessions, recommended every 2-3 weeks, involve adding extensions to new natural lashes that have grown in and replacing any extensions that have fallen out. Lash fills are essential for your clients if they want to maintain the full, lush appearance of their lash extensions. However, if your client doesn’t want an infill, it’s best to remove them, as the last thing you want is them picking at their lash extensions and damaging their natural lashes!

Why Do I Need Lash Fills?

As we previously mentioned, lash fills are essential for maintaining the beauty and fullness of your clients’ eyelash extensions. Over time, the lash extensions will naturally shed along with the natural lashes during the individual growth cycles of each lash, and this shedding can leave your clients’ lash extensions looking sparse and uneven with noticeable gaps. Although very short, new lashes (baby lashes) cannot have extensions applied directly to them, strategically placing extensions on surrounding lashes will help to seamlessly fill these gaps. So by the time their next fill appointment rolls around, those baby lashes will have grown enough for lash extensions of their own!

Moreover, as the natural lashes grow, extensions that were applied weeks ago may no longer sit correctly. The added length increases the leverage at the end of each lash, which could potentially cause the natural lash to twist or even damage the hair follicle due to the extra weight. Regular lash fills address these issues by replacing outgrown extensions, ensuring your clients’ lash lines remain beautifully full and their natural lashes are healthy.

When is the right time to get a Full Set or a Fill?

Timing is everything when it comes to maintaining those luscious lashes! Deciding between a Full Set of eyelash extensions or a Lash Fill depends on various factors contributing to achieving and maintaining your desired look.

Lash Fills are for those who have previously received a full set and want to maintain that fabulous look. As your natural lashes shed, gaps will appear, and your extensions will need some attention to maintain their pristine condition. This is where Lash Fills come in, as your Lash Artist will fill those gaps and check and replace extensions that have grown out to ensure your lash line remains lush and voluminous.

It is very common within the lash industry that a lash artist will require a client to have a full set applied if over 50% of the extensions have shed. So even if it’s only been three weeks, but you’ve lost more than half your set, don’t be surprised if your lash artist requires you to start fresh. But don’t hate on your lash artist. If you have a naturally fast lash cycle, you may need to come in for refills more often to avoid paying for a full set each time. Don’t forget that your lash artist wants your lashes to look their best. After all, your lashes are a walking advertisement for their work.

The Importance of Lash Aftercare

Irrespective of whether you opt for Lash Fills or a Full Set, correct aftercare and maintenance play a vital role in preserving the longevity of your extensions and the health of your natural lashes.

Effective aftercare goes beyond cleansing; it involves adopting mindful habits that protect your extensions from damage. Avoid rubbing your eyes, as this can cause the extensions to loosen and lead to premature shedding of your natural lashes. Instead, cleanse your lashes twice daily with Lash Shampoo to gently remove makeup, dirt, and debris without causing harm to the extensions or your natural lashes.

Maintaining neat and well-separated lashes is effortless with a soft-bristled mascara wand. Regularly brush through your lashes to prevent tangling and ensure they remain in perfect shape.

So, whether your Lash Artist recommends a Lash Fills or Full Sets, both offer distinctive advantages in enhancing your natural beauty and maintaining your desired look. While ultimately, the recommendation for either a refill or full set will come from your Lash Artist, we hope you’ll now better understand what to expect when your lash appointment is complete.
