Classic Eyelash Extension

“Fake eyelashes are a great way to step up your look to the next level.”

-Jeffree Star

What are Eyelash Extensions?

Lash extensions are strand-by-strand synthetic, faux mink, or silk fibers that are attached to your natural lashes. The application, as you may assume, is time-consuming. The extensions are carefully put one at a time. They use a specially developed, semi-permanent glue that will neither irritate or damage the natural lash.

Unlike fake eyelashes, which are applied to the skin with glue, lash extensions are attached directly to the lash. As a result, your lashes will be more luscious and dense. You may even be able to skip the mascara and try out some interesting eyeshadow looks.

What are the different kinds of Eyelash Extensions?

Classic Extensions

This type of lash extension is the most natural one. Here, only one fake lash is applied to a natural one.

In this section, I’ll go through it in further detail.

Hybrid Extensions

Eyelash technicians combine two techniques for a hybrid eyelash extension. They mix Volume (SVS or Russian) and Individual lash extensions (Extend). Hybrid Lashes combine the greatest features of both procedures to offer you volume and length. This results in a wispy, textured lash extension effect that can last up to 8 weeks.

This popular lash treatment is excellent for anyone who wants customized lashes with the definition of a classic extension but with increased depth and volume. 

Celebrities such as the Kardashians started this trend.

Volume Extensions

Volume lashing is a technique that involves applying 2-6 synthetic extensions to each individual lash.

Russian volume is another name for this procedure. The lash extensions used in this approach are much thinner than those used in the classic lash method (usually a 0.07 diameter lash extension).

Volume lashes are lighter, fluffier, and give a fuller appearance to the customer. They are ideal for people who lack lashes or have sparse lashes.

What exactly are Classic Eyelash Extensions?

Classic eyelash extensions are extensions that are simple, attractive, and natural-looking. One extension is linked to one natural lash at a 1:1 ratio. You’ll be able to acquire a natural enhancement as a result of this. (Classic lashes look more like mascara.)

Classic lashes will provide length but not much volume. They create a smooth lash line that draws the eye upward.

Traditional eyelash extensions are available in a variety of materials, thicknesses, and styles. 

The application of classic eyelash extensions usually takes 1.5 to 2 hours. Then, the end result should be soft, natural-looking lashes.

Who should get Classic Extensions?

If some of these points apply to you, you should definitely get the classic eyelash extension:

  • You already have voluminous lashes but want them longer.
  • Want more of a natural look (a mascara finish)
  • Fill in your sparse lashes
  • Desire a fuller or darker lash line
  • Have the time for it (it takes 1.5-2h)
  • Think the money is worth it

Are Lash Extensions harmful?

They are normally safe and do not harm the health of your natural lashes; if applied correctly. 

Avoid rubbing your eyes pulling on the extensions. This could result in lash loss and possibly harm to your natural lashes.
