The Answer

Both Eyelash Lifts in Cincinnati and Eyelash extensions give you a more bold, beautiful look & replenishes your natural beauty. The difference eyelashes application, severity of the lash length & volume, and how long you want your results to last. It can be boiled down to what are you comfortable with regarding ongoing maintenance. Eyelash Lifts work with the eyelashes you have. In order to keep them in their best shape, you would want to repeat the service every 6-8 weeks. Compared to eyelash lifts, eyelash extensions require more upkeep and maintenance to maintain the look. Lash extensions are eyelashes individually added as a set to your natural eye lashes to produce a much more full, and voluminous look while still maintaining the natural beauty and elegance you already have.

Let’s dig deeper into the nuances between these two. By the end of this, you’ll feel confident you can confidently make a choice about which eyelash service we can get started for you today!

Cincinnati Eyelash Lifts vs. Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash lifts & eyelash extensions are services we have been performing for a while now and are always evolving how we serve our greater Cincinnati clients. While our Eyelash lift service is more straightforward, our eyelash extensions have broadened as we constantly improve our technique and add more highly trained eyelash artists to the Lavish Cincinnati team. With the tremendous support we’ve gotten from the community, we have recently added more eyelash services to our offerings here at Lavish Cincinnati.

So before we get into the differences in extensions and lifts, it’s important to note that you can get three kinds of eyelash extensions with slight variations in lash application that yield different results with respect to volume. The options now range from:

  1. Classic Eyelash Extensions
  2. Hybrid Eyelash Extensions
  3. Volume Eyelash Extensions

Let’s talk about where they differ, how they are similar, and what is the right choice for you on your beauty journey.

Key Differences Between Eyelash Services

Classic eyelash extensions differ from our new and very popular volume eyelash service in the difference in volume and density of your lash aesthetic. In our classic eyelash extension option, a single lash is applied one-to-one to your natural lash giving you a more full but simple boost compared to your natural eyelashes.

Compare this to our Volume Eyelash Extensions which is the same process as Classic Eyelash Extensions but instead of a one-to-one application, we now are applying multiple lashes per one natural eyelash. This is going to give you a more dramatic look as compared to the Classic Eyelashes Service which are single lashes applied one-to-one to the natural eyelashes.

Splitting the difference is our newest Eyelash Extension service; Hybrid Eyelash Extensions. This is a blend both Classic & Volume Eyelash services in that some lashes recieve one-to-one while some of the lashes receive multiple lashes per natural lash. We have given you this option if you are on the fence and unsure if the bold, luscious results from our Volume Eyelash service is the look you want but you are certain you want to achieve a more full look than our Classic Eyelash Service.

Now that you understand the difference in how the eyelashes are volumized, let’s talk about the appointment and price for our eyelash extensions Cincinnati services. 

Price & Eyelash Maintenance

Eyelash Lifts

Eyelash Lifts are a more affordable solution compared to our eyelash extensions services but that doesn’t mean they are for everyone. Eyelash lifts are a great place for you to start if you are unsure about your commitment or desire to have fuller lashes and want a more conservative look for your lashes. Lash lifts are just as technical and require similar skills as extensions however with lifts the artists is curling and shaping your natural lashes. With that said, working with your natural lashes only to add volume requires much less time and is less intensive as we are not working with individual eyelashes like we are with extensions. Therefore, our eyelash lifts start at $85. Now let’s talk about eyelash extensions price.

Lash Fills Maintenance

It’s very important to understand one thing about how we handle eyelash extensions and their fills as it relates to general upkeep of the quality of the lashes. The longer you go between lash fill ins, the more work our artists need to do to restore that natural, full look therefore prices increases as time between appointments increases on classic lashes.

It is recommended that you protect your beauty investment by coming back to see us for your fill ins every 2 weeks – and if you are unable to meet that 2 week threshold, we would recommend you coming no later than 3 weeks. Beyond that, we will consider you a brand new full set due to the amount of maintenance by the artist. Anything after that 3 week mark for fill ins, you can expect your appointment to last as long as a brand new set therefore that is how we treat the appointment.

Classic Eyelash Extensions

Our classic eyelash extension option is the standard choice and costs $150. The appointment lasts approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours. The fills range from $65 if you are getting classic fills every two weeks up to $75 for a classic fill if you are coming back every 3 weeks. If a month or more has elapsed between your last fill in, your appointment will be considered as a new set valued at $150.

Hybrid Eyelash Extensions

Should you decide on a full set of hybrid eyelash extensions, the appointment is going to last 2.5 hours – 3 hours. Due to the increased time the artist is spending on individual lashes and for the higher volume results you are getting, this service costs $185. It is very important you keep up with maintenance of these results therefore we have one price for hybrid eyelash fills of $80 and recommend you coming back for fills every 3 weeks.

Volume Eyelash Extensions 

Volume lashes require the most investment of the three types of lash extensions. Full set of volume lashes are going to take 2.5 hours – 3 hours and cost $230 for a full set. Should you want our most robust volume and bold lash look, we recommend you never go beyond the maximum 3 week period without servicing your volume lash extensions. The cost of the fills is $95. Similar to classic and hybrid lashes, going beyond 3 weeks will trigger a switch to the appointment being considered as a new, full set.

Lash Verdict

If you are relatively new to beauty services or are looking for a more subtle, natural look while still boosting the volume of your lashes, then I would recommend you go for our lash lift services. But, if you are a veteran to rewarding yourself with the confidence boost that beauty services provide and this is your first experience with enhancing your lashes, then I recommend you begin with a classic lash lift. If you are a veteran to lashes, then I recommend you treat yourself and move up to volume lash extensions. The norm is moving more and more towards more full, voluminous lashes. You should get ahead of the game and try on a bold, new look. You deserve it!
