We recommend getting a touch up every 2 weeks. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set.

Other factors such as exposure to steam or touching your eyes a lot will cause the extensions to fall out sooner. A touch up is needed to fill in any lashes that have fallen out.
