The Lash Bible

Whether you’ve been getting lash extensions for years, or you’re a newbie (welcome to the club!), there’s a lot to know about lashes. So, we’ve created our very own Lash Bible. It features handy (and interesting) info like Why You Should Avoid Cluster Lashes, the Lash Shed Cycle, How Lash Fills Work, and more.

Have a lash question for us? Leave it in the comments below.

Classic Lashes vs Volume Lashes

Classic Lash Full Set: Lashes are applied to your natural lashes in a 1:1 ratio, with one lash extension per natural lash.

Volume Lash Full Set: Gives a fluffy full look. It consists of 3-6 individual lashes that create a fan that's applied to one natural lash. The lash thickness is typically between .05-.07 in diameter, but can go as low as .03 in diameter. Volume lashes can give weaker natural lashes a fuller, fluffier look that's fully customizable.

Mixed Classic and Volume Set. It’s the best of both worlds.  

Why You Should Avoid Cluster Lashes

There are Cluster Lashes and also pre-made fans. Both are not good for the lashes.

Cluster Lashes are synthetic, heavy hairs that are knotted or melted at the base. They're often applied (but not always) to multiple eyelashes at the same time. 

Pre-made fans are a shortcut that should not be taken because of the excess weight of double glue.

Why Cluster Lashes Aren’t Healthy. Cluster Lashes and pre-made fans are not the healthiest option for your natural lashes. They're damaging and too heavy for your natural lashes. The bases are bulky from the adhesive. It creates follicle tension when the Cluster Lash is attached to multiple natural lashes. Without proper isolation, if the clusters stick to multiple lashes, they all grow out at different rates, which can be painful and cause the lashes to pull out. Overtime, this can cause premature hair loss. And if done repeatedly can cause permanent hair loss. 

How to Keep Your Lashes Healthy. Make sure when searching for a Volume Lash artist, that they are using HANDMADE FANS, that they created themselves at the time of your appointment. Also the artist should only be applying one Volume fan per natural lash. They should not be stacked on each other, which is a mistake that causes too much weight. 

The Shedding Cycle

Each eye naturally sheds 2 to 5 lashes a day. On average, we lose at least 3 lashes a day per eye. That equates to:

  • 1 week = 21 lashes lost.

  • 2 weeks = 42 lashes lost.

  • 3 weeks = 63 lashes lost.

That's why we recommend that our clients get lash fills every 3 weeks to keep their fringe looking full and fresh. 

During the change in season, it’s normal to see an increase in the amount of hair loss on our bodies including eyelashes. We naturally lose 3 to 5 lashes per day, per eye. But during the spring and fall this amount can increase significantly.

As a result, this mean faster lash loss, lashes are shorter and thinner, and more frequent/longer fills. Don’t panic though. It’s temporary; lashes go back to normal after 1 to 2 cycles. However, if you find you’re losing hair all the time, be sure to follow up with your doctor to see if there’s an underlining health issue.

Lash Application & Fills

After your lash extensions are applied (see video on the right), overtime those extensions will grow or fall out with your natural lashes.

A lash fill is the removal of grown out extensions, then new lash extensions are applied to regrowth.

Typically, you’ll need a relash every three to four weeks depending on your hair’s growth cycle.

How you care for your lashes will also influence how long your lash extensions last. The products you use including skincare and makeup can potentially affect the lash extension bond.

Brushing Your Lashes Is a Necessity

Brush hair, brush teeth, brush lashes... Yes, part of lash maintenance is brushing your lashes.

Naturally, your lashes will get wet during showers, swimming, and from cleansing them. When wet, your lash extensions will potentially stick together. But by brushing them, you'll separate the lashes and restore definition, plus help them last longer.

Daily Lash Care (And Summer)

Keep your lashes looking beautiful by staying on top of your lash maintenance.

For every day cleansing, use a gentle cleanser to keep your lashes clean. Fresh Faced Skincare makes a great Gentle Cleanser and Foam Pump Bottle that we love. And here's a handy lash tip: to dry wet lashes, gently blow dry on a LOW COOL SETTING. 

Be Careful With Oil-Based Products. Don't forget to avoid oil-based products around the eyes, especially in the summer. The oil can break down the lash bond. And when applying sunscreen, skip spraying your face. Instead use an oil-free sunscreen applied by hand, so you can avoid contact with your lashes.

Pop on Some Goggles. Before you jump off that diving board or go for a swim in the ocean, consider popping some goggles on. Exposure to chlorine and salt water can irritate your eyes, increasing the likelihood of accidentally rubbing your eyes. If you want to opt-out of goggles, make sure when you get inside, you cleanse gently with your normal lash cleanser.

Don’t Forget Sunglasses. Not that we need an excuse to purchase another pair of sunnies, but we've got a good reason. The harsh sun can weaken your lash bond, making sunglasses a necessity to shield your lashes. Be sure to invest in a good pair that provides UV protection. 

Watch Out for Direct Heat. Cozying up to a beach bonfire, roasting marshmallows over a campfire, or slinging burgers on the grill can put your lashes into contact with extreme heat. Try to keep a safe distance to prevent singeing your lashes. (Yes, it does happen!) 

Lash Lifts Can Work Magic, Too

For ladies looking for a lift, but not false fringe, a lash lift can work magic, too. A lash lift is a semi-permanent lifting of the lashes. Keratin is applied to lift the lashes, making the lashes appear full and curvy without the need for mascara or a lash curler.
