What Type of Eyelash Extensions Should I Get? Classic, Hybrid or Russian Volume?

Let’s Talk Eyelash Extensions

If you are new to eyelash extensions it can be rather overwhelming deciding on which type of extensions to go for. The three main types are classics, hybrids and volume lashes and all create different looks so you should decide based on what kind of look you are going for. Classics are the most natural extensions to go for then hybrid lashes then Russian Volume lashes. You should also note that the outcome does also depend on how full your natural lashes are before any extensions are applied. For example, classic eyelash extensions on someone with full natural eyelashes will look much more dramatic than on someone with sparse eyelashes. This is because eyelashes are applied to your natural eyelash individually and therefore the more natural eyelashes you have, the more eyelash extensions can be applied. If you unsure of which type of eyelash extensions will suit you best, it is always a great idea to consult with your eyelash technician who will be more than happy to give you some advice. 

If you are new to eyelash extensions and are unsure of how comfortable you will find them or if you will like them on yourself we would recommend you try out a classic set of eyelash extensions. If you love them go for a fuller option such as hybrids, Russian Volume lashes next!

Classic Eyelash Extensions

These extensions are the most tradition and natural looking out of all the types of extensions. One eyelash extension is applied to one natural eyelash which helps to create a natural yet gorgeous set of eyelashes! Classics will add length, curl and a little more volume giving you a similar affect to that of mascara without even having to apply it each day. However, the outcome of this type of eyelash extensions does depend on how many natural eyelashes you have so if you have sparse eyelashes and want a fuller look, it is recommend to opt for hybrids, Russian Volume extensions.

Russian Volume Eyelash Extensions (Also known as Mega Volume)

If you are looking for super dramatic, full and curly eyelash extensions then these are the ones for you! Unlike classics, multiple extensions are applied to one natural eyelash which create the voluminous look. Russian Volume is also known as 3D or 4D lashes most commonly but can reach up to 8D – now that’s volume! These are perfect for those who wish for a fuller look due to sparse natural eyelashes. The eyelash extensions are added to a single lash in fan consisting of anywhere between 2 – 8 extensions in a cluster. However, since the purpose of these extensions are to be applied in clusters they are made more light weight than classic lashes. The more extensions applied to a lash the lighter the lashes are that are used to keep the weight to a minimum. The most common fan consists of 3 – 4 eyelash extensions on one natural eyelash as the more extensions applied to one lash, the heavier and more unconfutable the set becomes. The down side to Russian volume is since these are the heaviest type of eyelash extensions and therefore they tend to fall out earlier than classics or hybrids. This means you will need to book in more regular infills which in turn also costs much more. They are also the most expensive style out all the eyelash extension family.
