Q. Why should clients keep the lash line maintained?
A. Clients natural lash cycle is 60-90 days. All lashes are at different cycle stages, some new, some due to fall away from the eyelid naturally. When they do fall away the attached lash extension will go with it. Thus the lash extension will need to be replenished. Another reason is natural lashes will continue to grow, in some cases the lash extension will become too long or twist as the natural lash grows out. The extension should be removed by the Locks Lash technician & replenished.

A. It depends on the geographical location of the salon as well as how many lashes are being put onto each eye.

Product, time, wages, advertising & overheads are all considered differently by each lash technician.
