Though this monthly routine isn’t cheap, the price of effortless beauty may be worth it.

The dream to wake up with long, full, feathery eyelashes is not far off thanks to lash extensions, but the glamourous look can cost a pretty penny. Here’s why lash extensions cost so much.

Prices for this monthly procedure typically cost between $150-$550, depending on your city and a few other variables. If your stylist’s been in the industry for a while, you’re going to pay for their experience. The one-size-fits-all model doesn’t apply to lashes; the procedure requires considerable skill to customize each eye’s look.

Though the lowest price may appeal to your wallet, make sure you do your research. Reading reviews and pouring over before and after photos will give you a better understanding of the salon’s work.

Learn the differences between lash styles and make up. Synthetic, mink, or silk lashes will give your eye a more natural or “falsie” lash appearance, but these different options may vary in price.

The final price of your lashes may also include a maintenance fee. It’s common for stylists to add an additional charge if they need to remove your makeup. Since lash extensions cannot stick to mascara, artists must have a clean surface before any application. So, wipe off all eye makeup before your appointment to avoid this fee.

Keep in mind, your new lashes will require a touch up every 2-3 weeks. These follow up appointments will keep your lashes looking fresh longer but will cost you an extra $75-$150 per appointment.
