How Many Eyelash Extensions Should I Get Per Eye?

On average, people may have 90 to 150 eyelashes per eye on the upper eyelid and 70 to 80 smaller eyelashes on the lower lash line. The answer depends on how many natural eyelashes you actually have. For some, the set of 280 (140 eyelashes per eye) is a complete set, while for others, the set of 160 (80 eyelashes per eye) is sufficient for a full set. Each of the eyelash extension sets we offer is the maximum number of eyelashes that will be applied to natural eyelashes.

If you choose the set of 160 eyelashes, we will apply up to 80 eyelashes per eye. You may not have 80 natural lashes per eye, but we'll make sure to apply as many lashes as possible (up to 80 per eye, depending on the number of natural lashes available) and we'll give you that complete look. Tell your facial treatment specialist if you have had eyelash extensions applied to you, as eyelashes don't mix well with steam, so they can usually find another way to give you your favorite facial treatment. Some people don't find them as “soft” or “natural” as silk or mink eyelash extensions, and thicker ones (usually 0.20 mm wide) don't have as good staying power as silk or mink eyelashes, and definitely not do flat or synthetic mink eyelashes. If you have 100 extendable eyelashes per eye and the same time for your appointment, you'll receive half that amount or 50 extensions.

Its regenerative properties work faster, which means that your eyelashes grow and replace themselves faster and are healthier than those of an older person. Longer eyelashes are both a time and financial commitment, and could cost you thousands of dollars a year, depending on how often you apply them. An experienced eyelash technician should be able to look at your natural eyelashes and then determine which complete set is FOR YOU. Next, we'll look at “EYELASH SETS” and what you can expect when it comes to finding out how many eyelashes are in a complete set. In addition, you will notice that in the case of customers over 50 years of age, their eyelashes are thinner than those of younger customers.

The experience working with different types of natural eyelashes and the number of clients they have had (full-time, part-time or occasional) also influence how quickly the eyelash professional becomes an expert in applying eyelashes. As in the image below, placing two 0.10 mm eyelashes next to each other leaves a lot of negative space around them, compared to a hair of 0.20 mm.
