What Is the Average Cost of Lash Extensions?
\You know what they say: money makes the world go ‘round. And as catchy as that saying is, it’s unfortunate that it’s true. Everyone is out to live life to the best of their budget’s ability, and sometimes that means finding ways to sneak in those beauty services that make you feel like a million bucks without actually spending a million bucks.
Hitting the hair salon every month, getting your full set of acrylic nail refills, and getting a summer spray tan is just naming a few, but this is Lashify®, and we’re here to talk all things lash extensions. Trying to upkeep your lash habit can get pretty pricey, so to give you greater context to the cost of eyelash extensions, let’s break down extension prices: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Will it all still be worth it by the end? We might be a little biased, but we have a sneaking suspicion you’re answer will be a resounding “Yes!”
The Most Bang For the Most Bucks
Why don’t we kick it off from the top of the price pyramid? If you start with the worst of it, it can only improve, right? We’re talking about the most expensive lashes money can buy, babes.
If you’re in the market for eyelash extensions prepared to break the bank and cost you just as much in the time they take to apply, you’ll want to step off the elevator here in lash tech land. The priciest set of lash extensions you can find will be abundant in the professional lash salons littered around your local urban area.
We’d advise you to get comfortable real quick because you’ll be tied to your lash technician for the next one to four hours as they painstakingly apply extensions to your lashes. One. At. A. Time.
A classic set of lashes applied by a lash artist will typically run you close to $120, but if you’re after a more intense set of volume lashes, you’re looking at upwards of a $400 charge. And that’s not including a tip for the service of applying them! Tack on an extra 15 to 20 percent for that, and you’ll be ready to start applying part-time at Baby GAP just to make up the difference.
But hold on! It gets worse! If your lash stylist’s lash services are in high demand because of where you live or what they do, you should prepare for an increase in that average cost — classic lashes won’t be the affordable gem they once were. Oh, and don’t forget about that pesky extension removal fee. That’s an additional $25 to $40 on the tail end. Incredible (we say sarcastically).
A few trips to the lash artist, and you’ll be converting back to plain mascara for your lash lift needs.
The Cheap Choice
Have the tears started falling yet, or are they still just welling up? Before you go full meltdown mode, there are cheaper options on the market. These cheaper options aren’t just a cheaper price tag; they come with cheaper quality, ingredients, and results too. Woohoo!
Don’t get us wrong, we’ve all been through the strip lash phase, and we wouldn’t be where we are today without that era of eyelash extensions paving the way, but we can all agree that they aren’t the optimal choice for a consistent lash wearer. In almost any department store, you can stroll right over to a section folded within the makeup and find an assortment of affordable, yes, but low-quality lash extensions and lash glues.
We’re talking lashes that put the “faux” in faux mink. For the low, low price of anywhere between $10 to $20, you could be the proud owner of a lash set that, once trimmed to fit, will still leave your eyes potentially itchy and irritated, angry every time you peel them away from your lids. Sure, you can take home a set of lashes and adhesive (for an additional $10) and be on your merry way for a fraction of the salon cost, but at what cost is that to your eye health?
Wearing and re-wearing a set of used eyelash extensions day in and day out leaves you open to risks like debris from the lash falling in your eye, your skin having an allergic reaction to the glue, or an all-out eye infection if you aren’t careful. Before you know it, your natural lashes will be falling out faster than the lash cycle can grow them back, and you’ll be left more reliant on the lash extensions than ever before.
Is that really worth it to you in the long haul? Because we promise there are better options.
