Classic Lash Extensions
What are classic lashes?
Classic lashes are individual extensions that can come in many variations of diameters, lengths, and curls.
Diameters can range from .10 to .30 millimetres, with .12 and .15 being the most common - probably what you're getting when you have a set of classic lashes done.
While this style of lash extension is usually recognized for being the most natural, a volume set of lashes done just right can offer a much more natural end result, just as classics can adapt to look more glam! It's all about working with your lash artist to find the style that's right for you.
Light Volume Lashes
When browsing the ALB site, you might notice that where one may expect to see hybrid lashes on the service menu, we instead have the option of light volume (or, Gala) lashes. This isn't a mistake!
Over my years as a lash artist, I realized that most often when people asked for hybrid lashes it wasn't because they wanted a 50/50 combination of classic and volume lashes, but rather because they enjoy the look of volumes while also desiring semi-natural results.
If that sounds familiar, Gala may be just right for you!
While regular volume fans have 5-7 lashes per fan, light volume lashes only have 3-5. Volume lashes also range from 0.03mm-0.07mm in diameter, so when used appropriately can offer a more natural look than classics even despite there being more individual lashes!
Hybrid vs. Volume Lash Extensions
Volume Lash Extensions
What are Volume lashes?
Volume lashing is a technique where multiple lash extensions are gathered together and adhered onto the natural lash in the form of a fan.
Volume extensions can range from 0.02-0.07 in diameter, with 0.05 most commonly being used for Volume and 0.03 for Mega-Volume techniques.
Their slim, lightweight nature allow more lashes to be used, creating a darker lash line without compromising natural lash health. Volume sets are extremely versatile and can accommodate popular advanced styles such as the Striplash and Wet look.
