Thinking to enhance your natural eyelashes with eyelash extensions but not sure which style will suit you best? Don’t worry; we will tell you all about the different types of lash extensions and help you decide which one is best for you.
The Three Main Types of Lash Extensions
CLASSIC EYELASH EXTENSIONS
Classic lash extensions are the most common and natural-looking eyelash extensions. They’re applied in a 1:1 ratio which means 1 eyelash extension is glued to 1 natural eyelash. It is not possible to place an extension where there isn’t a natural lash!
Classic lashes are great for you if you:
- Have a lot of natural eyelashes
- Want to add more length
The application process typically takes 1.5 to 2 hours and the result would be beautiful, natural-looking eyelashes. However, if you have fewer eyelashes, you should not go for classic eyelash extensions.
VOLUME EYELASH EXTENSIONS
If you are not blessed with beautiful, voluminous lashes, then volume lash extensions might be the perfect solution for you. Volume Lash Extensions, also known as Russian volume lash extensions, provide incredible fullness & also last longer than classic lash extension. These lashes are thinner (usually 0.05g-0.07g); hence, multiple lashes can be applied to one single natural eyelash.
If 2 lash extensions are applied to 1 natural lash, it is described as 2D, if 3 lash extensions are applied to one natural lash, then it’s described as 3D. This can continue up to 5D.
Volume lashes are great for you if you:
- Have fewer eyelashes
- Have gaps in your lash line
- Want fuller looking lashes
- Want a more glamorous & dramatic look
The application process typically takes 2 to 3 hours and the result would be thick, dramatic eyelashes.
HYBRID EYELASH EXTENSIONS
If you want to add both length and volume to your eyelashes but don’t want the dramatic look of Volume extensions, you should go for hybrid lash extensions.
Hybrid Lashes are simply a combination of Classic as well as Russians Volume extensions. When you choose hybrid eyelash extensions, you get the best of both worlds without the dramatic look of Volume lashes.
