What are lash extensions?

 

Classic eyelash extensions come in a variety of fibres. These days, the most commonly chosen by lash artists is Faux Synthetic Mink due to it being the softest and most natural feeling along with animal cruelty free.

Alongside this, lash extensions also come in many different curls, lengths and thicknesses which all play an important factor in how a finished set of lash extensions will look on each client.

 

So what are classic eyelash extensions?

Classic eyelash extensions are the most subtle, beautiful, natural-looking lash extensions. They are applied with one extension being glued on one natural lash (1:1 ratio natural lash to extension). This allows you to achieve a simple, natural enhancement. 

If you want eyelash extensions that will only be noticeable to your friends who know what eyelash extensions look like, classic eyelashes are a great place to start! Application typically takes 1.5 to 2 hours (if someone tells you they can do it in under an hour, it’s not a good sign). The result should be soft, natural-looking lashes your friends won’t know isn’t just a great mascara. A typical full set of Classic lashes can vary from having 40 extensions up to 150 extensions per eye depending on the clients desired look and of course how many natural healthy lashes they have to begin with! If you happen to have naturally sparse lashes then classics may not be the best option for you. Classic lash extensions on a sparse lash line runs the risk of looking "spidery" which is a look none of us want. It’s better to go for a light hybrid look instead.

 

 

What are hybrid lash extensions?

 

Are you wanting a little more coverage, but aren't ready for full volume yet? The answer is hybrid eyelash extensions! This is a blending of both the classic and volume eyelash extension techniques. Hybrid lashes are a 70-30 mixture of both classic lashes and volume lashes where volume fans and classic eyelash extensions are intermixed to create a fuller lash line. If you feel like you have a good amount of lashes, but have some gaps here and there, this mixed technique is perfect. This look has since spread across Hollywood. Stars love it because it offers a wispy, natural lash line with a little drama. The look is achieved by mixing classic lashes and volume lashes placed strategically to frame the eyes. Hybrid lashes offer you a varied texture and more volume, but without the sometimes-unnatural look of volume lashes. Volume fans will fill in any gaps to create an even lash line. This gives a slightly fluffier appearance to the lashes than straight Classic eyelash extensions.

 

What are volume eyelash extensions? 

 

Volume lashing is a more technical technique where the technician takes very thin eyelash extensions and makes them into a fan shape before applying to the natural eyelash. Volume eyelash extensions offer you a full, better-than-falsies look that gives you some serious glamour and drama. Volume lashes (also known as Russian volume lash extensions) were invented by Russian technicians only recently. For those with sparse lashes, when these fans overlap they cover any gaps in the lash line and create an illusion of having way more lashes than you actually have. So, instead of the 1:1 ratio of classic lashes, you may have a 1:3 or 1:5. This is how the luxurious volume is achieved! 

 

So what will Volume eyelash extensions add for someone with a fuller lash line already? DRAMA!!! We're adding anywhere from 120-600 lash extensions per eye! 2D, 3D, 5D define the number of lashes in each fan. So, if a lash look you like is “3D” it has a 1:3 ratio. 2D & 3D lashes give a natural, voluminous look, whilst higher volumes give a more dramatic look. The highest volume you are likely to find is 10D – though this is an EXTREME falsie look!  Volume eyelash extensions vary from an extremely natural look which adds some length and volume (2D and 3D lashes), to a very dramatic and full look (4D up). 5D and higher may look like you are wearing epic false lashes all the time.

 

I’m sure you’re asking, how can this possibly be safe for your natural eyelashes? You see, it's the difference in the diameter of the extensions used. A typical Classic eyelash extensions is between 0.10mm and 0.15mm.  A typical volume eyelash extension is between 0.03mm and 0.07mm. Using a thinner, lighter extension allows for more extensions to be applied to a single lash. Of course, your natural lash length and thickness will determine exactly how big of a fan can be applied. The health and safety of your eyelashes is most important! Compared to classic lash extensions, where you could only SAFELY attach one eyelash extension to each natural lash, Volume Lashes (also known as 2D – 10D lashes) breaks through that limitation by having anywhere from 2 to 10 super fine extensions applied to a single natural eyelash, SAFELY.

 

What’s better, classic, hybrid, or volume eyelashes? 

Any is the quick answer! It really depends on the look you’re wanting to achieve and on your natural lashes. If you are lucky enough to have thick natural lashes then you may decide to get classic lashes, so your look isn’t too dramatic. 

If you don’t have naturally thick lashes, you may prefer to choose hybrid lash extensions to get the best of both worlds. Of course, 3D eyelash extensions and other volumes will likely give you lashes you won’t stop looking in the mirror at!!
