How many times have you had your eyelash extensions done and filled? Out of all of those studio visitations, how many times has your lash stylist counted your lash extensions, and only then did the application? If you are a newbie when it comes to wearing and getting lash extensions there are a lot of rules for you to consider and think about before booking your next lash appointment. Keep on reading as we list out all the key facts and reasons why someone might want to count your lashes, and why other salons don’t go for this technique.
Why Do Some Lash Studios Bill Per Lash Extension?
In some salons, your lash extensions are applied not by your preferred look, but by the number and quantity of lashes that are being used in the application process. This is why some lash salons have specific pricing for your preferred infill, such as anywhere from 50-150 lashes! The more you stack and go for, the pricier the outcome. The reason behind this is probably because their materials are pricey, as well as their import, also they bill based on the time needed to apply each lash, However, proper and experienced salons do not go for this method.
How Are Lashes Applied?
Eyes come in various shapes and sizes. This is why not every girl can rock the same lash type or length. You can go for wispy, large, small, and medium sizes that are adjusted to your smaller or bigger eyes, hooded eyes, or deep sets. Your lash artist has to do the measurement and figure out the perfect length and curl for you. The most common sizes are 0.15mm-0.2mm. For some salons the trickier the application, the pricier the outcome.
What To Know About The Number Of Lashes?
Most women have around 100-150 Natural lashes per one upper lid. In some cases, you can have super thin lashes and sparse types (only around 50 per eye), or you can be blessed and have thick full 200 lashes on one eye! However, the number of natural lashes you have can play a significant role in the final result of your set. Although the application can be trickier for sparse lashes, it shouldn’t be pricier. With some salons, you’re only paying for the full picture and its marvelous outcome.
How Time-Consuming Is The Application?
Some lash artists bill per hour while others bill per set. In most cases, here is how time-consuming this is for experienced lash artists:
- 50 lashes take around 1 hour to do
- 100 lashes take around 2 hours to do
- 150 lashes around 2.5 hours
The only unanimous rule is that super long, pricey, and voluminous Lash refills are going to be pricey, no matter the salon and its policy or pricing. Find a salon that is within your price range and that promises quality and marvelous lashes, not tricky lash-counting payment options.
So, Counting or Not Counting? Which Is Best For Clients
Lash salons have different business models, these models have some effects on the profitability of the business, as well as the results and the outcome provided
When a Lash Salon bill the customer per lash, the client pay for the material and time spent on the application, no matter what the outcome would be, usually salons who uses this type of model will blame you as a customer if the outcome is not what you expected, they request to pay extra as you go based on how full the eyes should be, the more lashes you want, the more you pay
Is it a bad approach? Not always, especially when you are in well-experienced hands, but it is not the best when it comes to what we expect from our lash artists, as a client you want a set of options that is based on the look and the results you get, you don’t wanna get into details, like how many lashes are being applied, or what is the length or whatever! If I needed a volume look -let’s say- I would want to know a prefixed price to deliver the look I desire, and that’s it, usually that’s how experienced artist set their prices and lash business, honest, clear, and transparent
