Is it better to get classic eyelash extensions or volume eyelash extensions?

Are you fed up with glue artificial eyelashes that fall out just when you need them the most? There's no need to glue them back on now, or ever, because eyelash extensions are in, and artificial eyelashes are out. Eyelash extensions are more adaptable than false eyelashes, which are put together in a strip, and give a more natural look than fake eyelashes. To top it off, if properly cared for, eyelash extensions can last up to eight weeks.

Classic eyelash extensions and volume eyelash extensions are the two types of eyelash extensions available.

The diameter of the extensions utilized in these two types of eyelash extensions differs. Classic eyelash extensions are 0.10 to 0.15 mm in length, whereas volume eyelash extensions are 0.03mm to 0.07mm in length.

To obtain natural and realistic eyelashes, one extension is attached to a single natural eyelash in classic eyelash extensions. It's also known as one-to-one or 1:1. Customers who have thick eyelashes yet want them to be longer can benefit from traditional eyelash extensions. If your natural lashes are inadequate, classic eyelash extensions can help you attain a gorgeous look while maintaining a natural appearance.

The volume eyelash extension uses thinner and lighter extensions to give your lashes a larger, fluffier appearance. You can apply more extensions to a single lash by utilizing thinner and lighter extensions.

Russian Volume is another name for volume eyelash extensions. The eyelash extensions used in the volume method are intentionally thinner than those utilized in the traditional procedure.

Multiple lighter and thinner eyelashes are added to a single natural eyelash in volume eyelash extensions. By adding 2 to 3 very light and thin eyelash extensions, the normal eyelash is separated from other natural eyelashes. 2D eyelash extension is a technique that involves adding two eyelash extensions to one natural lash. A 3D eyelash extension is when three eyelash extensions are put to a single natural eyelash.

Because two or three eyelash extensions wrap around the native eyelash, volume lashes appear to have a stronger attachment. Between fills, volume lashes appear to last longer.

Clients who don't have a lot of lashes, sparse lashes, or bald areas choose volume eyelash extensions. Customers who want a larger, more dramatic look without having to wear fake eyelashes, which do not look natural and can only be worn for a short time, can benefit from the volume approach.

A volume fan is a collection of volume eyelash extensions. A 3D volume fan is less heavy than a single traditional extension. Because less adhesive is utilized in the volume eyelash extension process, your eyes will not feel as though they have gained weight. Waterproof lash extensions will remain in place until you decide to remove them. Lash extensions will add length and volume to your natural lashes while causing no damage. There are many different lash looks for each eye shape, but you must choose the one that best suits you and emphasizes the individuality of your eyes. With their broad selection of extensions, brands like Lilac St., Lash Perfect, and Novalash can assist you.

Whatever type of eyelash extensions you use, they aren't supposed to last forever. It is normal to lose 3 to 5 lashes per day, regardless of whether or not extensions are affixed. However, regardless of the procedure, a fill must be performed every 2 to 3 weeks.

It's most likely due to a client's observations, or the fact that newer techniques have emerged, why traditional eyelash extensions have fallen out of favor these days. When compared to the volume eyelash extension method, more clients complained about lash fallout with classic eyelash extension techniques.

Classic eyelash extensions have a strong attachment because each lash is meticulously fastened to a natural lash and maintained in place for two seconds. Classic lashes have a strong attachment, however they frequently fall off due to eye rubbing. The bonding strength of volume eyelash extensions, on the other hand, has been noted. A 3D volume fan will wrap around a natural lash, strengthening the attachment. Clients who had the volume eyelash extension are happier because having their lashes filled again takes longer.


People who wish to enhance the appearance of their eyes with fuller, thicker lashes might benefit from classic and volume eyelash extensions. Want to know which approach will work best for your lashes? Feel free to email me, Sumiko Lui, at or book your appointments here.
