Classic vs Volume eyelash extensions? 


Classic method: Is where 1 lash extension is glued to 1 natural lash. This method is also known as 1 to 1. Classic lashes are perfect for clients who have average to full lashes, but want to add more curl, length and thickness. Classic lashes look more natural than volume lashes and eliminate the use of mascara and an eyelash curler saving you time, energy and money.


Volume method: (2D, 3D, 4D, 5D, 6D, 7D, 8D) Also known as Russian volume, is when multiple lashes are applied to one single natural eyelash, individually isolating one natural eyelash at a time. Using very thin lashes. If two eyelash extensions are applied to one natural lash, it’s described as 2D, if three eyelash extensions are applied to one natural eyelash, it’s described as 3D, etc. The lash extensions used in this method are significantly thinner (usually a 0.07 diameter lash extension is used)  than the lash extensions used for the classic lash method. Volume lashes are lighter, fluffier and give the client a fuller look. Volume lashes are "perfect" for clients who have thin lashes/ sparse lashes, bald spots or want a more dramatic look.
