Individual eyelashes, or classic eyelashes, are a technique used to provide this service. It is called “individual eyelashes” because the eyelash technician applies an individual classic eyelash extension to an individual natural eyelash extension. This method is also known as Russian volume. The eyelash extensions used in this method are significantly thinner than the eyelash extensions used for the classic eyelash method.
Volumized eyelashes are lighter, fluffier and give the client a fuller appearance. Volume eyelashes are perfect for clients who don't have a lot of eyelashes, have sparse eyelashes, bald spots, or who simply want a more spectacular look without having to use thicker eyelashes. Hybrid eyelashes are a mix of classic and voluminous eyelashes to create a more complete set for those with thinner natural eyelashes or for those who want a denser classic set. Classic eyelash extensions are those in which an extension is applied individually to a natural eyelash. It's sometimes called “one-to-one” because it's an extension of an eyelash.
An eyelash artist dips the end of an individual extension in adhesive, then applies it over or under the natural lash, and repeats until each medium and mature lash is ready. Choosing hybrid extensions gives your customers the best of both worlds. The look is achieved by mixing classic eyelashes and volume eyelashes that are strategically placed to frame the eyes. Hybrid extensions offer a variety of textures and more volume, but without the sometimes unnatural look of voluminous eyelashes. For clients who want a lash line with a little more volume, but not as much as volume extensions, this technique will provide the perfect balance. On the other hand, those with a weak and sparse appearance of eyelashes would be ideal for voluminous eyelash extensions.
Alternatively, opt for tabs with a very light volume, such as the 2D-3D ones; this is where the fans only have 2 or 3 tabs. If you've never had your eyelashes done before, classic extensions are a good starting point to get an idea of the treatment in general. Don't worry so much when you have thick, brown eyelashes, classic eyelash extensions might be all you need. As the eyelashes come off naturally (60 to 90 days), the eyelash extension will be removed and any damage to the root will be avoided if the eyelash extension is applied correctly. Eyelash extensions Unlike individual eyelashes, eyelash extensions apply an eyelash extension to a natural eyelash with a permanent adhesive.
Borboleta Beauty took the liberty of weighing thousands of its extensions to show the difference between the weight of volumized eyelashes and the classic weight of eyelashes. Bulky eyelashes require a higher level of skill and investment of time on the part of the technician, since the fans are previously manufactured by hand. This is where you take a natural eyelash and place it between your insulation clamps so that, when you place the extension, it doesn't stick to other eyelashes. Both styles of eyelash extensions require the same level of maintenance: you should gently wash them with a suitable brush and cleanser every morning and every night. Volume lashes last longer than classic lashes and last 6 to 8 weeks with proper aftercare, depending on the natural eyelash growth cycle. They simply have a different shape at the base: in cross section, the flat tabs are shaped like an ellipse instead of a circle.
Thicknesses greater than 0.15 are not recommended, and 0.15 is only suitable for very strong natural lashes. In this image you can see that the volume of the lashes at the top is much fluffier and softer, and classic lashes look more like mascara. Depending on the number of lashes you want and the number you want to have left, the cost of eyelash extensions can vary a lot.
