You will find out everything you need to know about classic eyelash extensions in this article so that you can choose the best one possible

WHAT ARE CLASSIC LASHES?

Classic eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelash at a 1:1 ratio - one extension to one natural eyelash. They are the original and, thus, traditional method and set a precedent for other lash extension methods.

Typically, a classic extension thickness is 0.15 mm but may also be thicker or thinner depending on the natural lash.

HOW ARE CLASSIC LASHES DONE

ONE EXTENSIONS APPLIED TO A SINGLE NATURAL EYELASH

One extension is applied to a single natural eyelash. Following the process described in the definitive guide to eyelash extensions, the natural lash is analyzed to select the best extension. The ideal classic extension will match the thickness of the natural eyelash and extend its length by up to 3mm. If the extensions are too thick or long, damage can occur. 

THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE GETTING CLASSIC LASHES

One of the reasons that natural, everyday women are attracted to classic eyelash extensions is because they offer a more natural look. As the name suggests, these lashes don't add volume to your natural lashes. But many people still choose to get them for several other reasons. 

Important considerations that can impact your decision to get classic eyelash extensions are:

  1. You are happy with the number of lashes you have. 
  2. There are no visible gaps in your lash line. 
  3. You want the appearance of just a few coats of mascara. 
  4. You want a natural result with a bit more length and flattering curls style.

Classic lashes might not be the best choice if your eyelashes are few and/or uneven. Because they will enhance what you have and won't add volume or disguise imperfections.

MAINTENANCE

The maintenance of classic lashes is pretty much the same as the maintenance of volume and hybrid lashes. However, the main difference is experienced when your extensions are shed. Eyelashes are shed daily and may be less noticeable when a classic lash falls out. 

CLASSIC LASHES VS OTHER LASH ENHANCEMENTS

Many similar looks can be achieved with different lash enhancements. Lash lengthening, lash thickening, and lash curling are all ways to achieve this. Using these methods will have you looking your best for many different occasions.

  • LASH LIFT

    Lash lifts often create results similar to classic lash extensions on naturally long and thick lashes. However, eyelash extensions come out on top if you want a particular style like a cat eye because your natural lashes are all the same length.

  • LASH TINT

    A lash tint will add colour to lashes, however it will not lengthen or curl your natural lashes which can only be done with extensions or artificial lashes

  • HYBRID & VOLUME EXTENSIONS

    volume and hybrid lash extensions add fluffiness that is not commonly created with classic lashes. These extensions give your eyes a beautiful look that many people can't achieve with just their natural lashes.
