What Are Classic Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions are one of the easiest, fastest ways to take day-to-day beauty to a higher level. And Classic lashes (or basic eyelashes) can be a great look for almost everyone.

What Are Classic Eyelash Extensions?

Classic lash extensions are a type of eyelash extensions applied on a 1:1 ratio, which means one extension is attached to one natural lash. One extension is dipped into the adhesive and applied to one of your natural lashes, unlike strip cluster lashes, which are applied to the skin of the eyelid. Classic lash extensions are also known as individual lashes or 1 to 1 lash extensions.

Classic eyelashes are the most traditional and popular style because the results look natural, they are not heavy to the eye and, if done properly, they won’t damage your natural lashes. They come in different materials as well as length, thickness, and curl type.

How to apply classic lashes?

The classic technique involves gluing one extension to one natural lash. This method is 1 to 1 or 1:1. Classic lashes are suitable for clients with many lashes who want to lengthen them and for clients who like a subtle natural look without too much drama.

Classic eyelash extensions can be from 5mm to 15mm long. Shorter lashes are used for inner corners and longer ones for the rest of the set.Choosing the right length of classic lashes is very important. They shouldn’t be too heavy, otherwise, they will be uncomfortable to wear and their weight can ruin your natural lashes. The most popular length of the classic lash extensions is between 9mm and 13mm. The rule is that the extensions shouldn’t be longer than 20% of the length of your natural lashes.

What Is the Difference Between Classic Lashes and Volume Lashes?

As said before, with classic lashes 1 extension is applied to 1 natural lash. With volume lashes, multiple thinner extensions are attached to 1 natural lash. They usually go from 2D to 6D, depending on how many lashes are attached to one natural lash. They are also called Russian volume lash extensions.

Classic lashes add length to your natural lashes, but volume lashes add thickness and depth. They create a soft, feathery effect, and a little bit of a dramatic look. Russian volume lashes are more suitable for people who wear make-up every day since classic lashes look more natural and are more adequate for everyday use.

What is the Difference Between Classic Lashes and Hybrid Lashes?

Hybrid lashes mix classic lash extension and volume lash extensions. This means that individual lashes are added in some spots, while in others, fans of 2 or more volume lashes are applied. Lash artists usually use longer classic eyelash extensions to create hybrid lashes.

By combining the two techniques, with hybrid lashes you get length and fullness. Perfect for people who want a fuller lash line and a more texturized lash look.

Which are the Best: Classic, Volume, or Hybrid Lash Extensions?

Classic lashes are perfect for people who already have good lashes but want to add more length while keeping the natural look.

Volume lashes are for those who like a more dramatic look, while the hybrid lashes add both length and thickness, for those with thinner natural lashes or for those wanting a denser classic lashes set.
