Lash extensions are silk or mink eyelashes applied one extension to one natural lash. Lash extensions come in several different lengths, thicknesses, curl types and colors. Eye Lash extensions are perfect for special occasions or for day to day wear.
Classic lashes- A method where 1 lash extension is glued to 1 natural lash. This method is also known as 1 to 1 or 1:1. Classic lashes are perfect for clients who already have a lot of lashes, but want to add more length. Classic lashes look more natural.
Volume (3D) lashes- When multiple lashes are applied to one single natural eyelash individually isolating one natural eyelash at a time. Using very thin lashes. If two eyelash extensions are applied to one natural lash it’s described as 2D, if three eyelash extensions are applied to one natural eyelash then it’s described as 3D etc.
Silk lashes are thicker at the bottom and thinner at the top. They are made to look more glossy and full. With these types of lashes, you can sleep with them, swim, sunbathe and play sports. These lashes require very little maintenance and allow you to continue with your daily activities without worrying about them falling out. Lashes done by a professional can last anytwhere from 3-6 weeks, depending on the life cycle of your natural lashes.
You you are looking for the mascara look with glossy, long eyelashes - silk eyelashes are the way to go.
Mink lashes look more natural and are extremely lightweight. They are more matte than silk lashes. The Mink is aquired by carefully brushing and collecting the hair. The best mink lashes are siberian mink lashes.
The only downsides to mink lashes are that they may lose their curl as time passes ( a heated lash curler can remedy this) and if you are allergic to animal hair, you may experience an allergic reaction to the mink hair.
This method is also known as Russian volume. The lash extensions used in this method are significantly thinner ( Usually a 0.07 diameter lash extension is used) than the lash extensions used for the classic lash method.
Volume lashes are lighter, fluffier and give the client a fuller look. Volume lashes are prefect for clients who don't have a lot of lashes, have sparse lashes, bald spots or just want a more dramatic look without having to use a thicker lash.
Hybrid lashes are a mixture of Classic and Volume lashes to create a fuller set for those with thinner natural lashes or for those wanting a denser Classic set.
