Classic eyelash extensions

Classic eyelash extensions are – as their namesake – classic. They are simple, beautiful, natural-looking lash extensions. They are applied on a 1:1 ratio, which means one extension on one natural lash. This allows you to achieve an understated, 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. Classic eyelash extensions come in a range of materials, thicknesses and styles, so talk to your technician about the look you are trying to achieve.  

Classic lash extension 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. 

What is the difference between classic, hybrid, and volume eyelash extensions?

Classic Eyelash Extensions

The biggest difference is in the result you can achieve with each – classic lashes won’t add much volume but will add length. Classic eyelash extensions offer you an even lash line that opens up the eye. It helps you look made-up right from the moment you wake up, and builds on your natural lash beauty. 

Hybrid Lashes

Hybrid lashes offer you a varied texture and more volume, but without the sometimes-unnatural look of volume lashes. This is the look the Kardashians made popular, so the lash line is broken and textured. 

Though of course, the lashes are very soft! If you look at Hollywood stars and wonder how they all have such beautiful and long natural lashes, here’s your answer! 

Volume Eyelash extensions

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 (5D up). 5D and higher may look like you are wearing false lashes all the time. 

Though of course the lashes are attached to your natural lashes. So there is no bulky strip or lash separation to be seen. 2D lashes are very comparable to classic lashes, just with some extra volume which may be just what you’re looking for. 

Classic lashes are applied individually on a 1:1 ratio, hybrid typically uses 30% classic lashes and 70% volume lashes (variable ratio), and volume ranges from 1:2 to 1:7 generally. 

Another difference to take into consideration is the cost of application. Classic lashes require little preparation, so they are a much more affordable option if budget is important to you. 

This is because volume lashes require a higher level of skill and larger time investment on the part of the technician, as they handmake the fans during your appointment.
