Choosing which style of lashes to go for can be confusing but it doesn't have to be once you understand the difference between the two main techniques and the pros and cons. Many for my clients' first question is "What's the difference between Classic and Volume lashes?" and quite rightly so as the two styles are priced differently so there must be a big difference right? Correct.
Firstly, CLASSIC and VOLUME lashes describes the technique of the application of the lashes. Volume lashes is officially called the Russian Volume technique as it started in Russia. The application involves adhering 2-4 lashes per single natural lash and you can even apply up to 10 safely! This application of 5+ lashes on one natural lash falls under MEGA VOLUME which has been popular recently due to the demand for fuller, thicker and more dramatic lash sets.
These special volume lashes are much finer in thickness so have less weight on the natural lashes. On the photo below which is a photo of my lash board I use for my consultations, we can see the different thicknesses lashes come in. Volume Lashes can ONLY be done using 0.03, 0.05, 0.07 or 0.10 which can be used for both Classic or Volume. How many lashes a lash tech decides to put on the natural lash comes with their knowledge and training of proper application of Volume lashes. My main value when it comes to my specialist skill of Eyelash Extensions is of course to not damage natural lashes. For this reason, I have made it my mission to go after the best training courses and keep in touch with some of the best lash techs out there for continuous feedback and advice.
If you're still not sure, don't panic! I'm sure we can come to a suitable choice for your lashes when you come in :)
