The Real Cost of Eyelash Extensions - ForChics

Beauty routines are a big part of life. They’re a big part of your day, a big part of your look, and, unfortunately, a big part of your wallet. 

There’s the skin creams, face masks, and moisturizers, oh my. And that’s only for one part of the routine that can cost hundreds of dollars a year. There’s also the lips, hair. And of course, you can’t forget the eyes. 

Let’s take a special look at the eyelashes. If the eyes are the window to the soul, the lashes are the curtains. Good curtains can sometimes be expensive, especially depending on how you’re going about it. 

Unlike your curtains, expensive eyelash habits will continue to cost you, likely more than you would have ever known. 



Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash extensions, for example, cost anywhere from $100 to $400 when you get your first set put on at a salon. Many say that “with proper care”, eyelash extensions should last a full 6 weeks before they start coming out naturally. 

However, for many, lash extensions will naturally start to fall out around 2 - 3 weeks in. When that starts happening, you can get refills done at the salon to keep up the full lash look. The problem is, lash refills will cost you anywhere from $50 to $80 per session, plus another trip to the salon. 

So here is a quick breakdown at the budget needed for a year of eyelash extensions: 

  • One full set every 6ish weeks ($120 x 8 times per year) = $960
  • Refills every 2 - 3 weeks ($50 x 8 times per year) = $400 
  • Total money spent for one year on lash extensions = $1360

This doesn’t even take into account the time lost. Each appointment will take about 2 hours, and you’ll have to return for those refills and reapplication about 8 times a year respectively. 

In totality, a year of eyelash extensions can cost you 20+ hours of your life. What could you be doing with all that time you save? Reading, working out, or whatever else you damn well please!


Prescription Serums

Even if you’re just trying to grow out your natural eyelashes, the cost can start to add up. Prescription eyelash serums will run you anywhere from $100 to $150, not counting the time it takes to get the prescription written up. 


So here is a quick breakdown at the budget needed for a year of prescription lash serums: 

  • $120 x 12 = $1440
  • Doctor’s Appointment or Online Consultation: $50
  • Total money spent for one year on lash extensions = $1490


Turns out that even prescription eyelash serums cost more than eyelash extensions! We wish there was a more cost-effective option… oh wait 😏
