What are the different types of lash extensions?
Lash extensions have become a beauty must-have in the last few years and it is safe to say they have become an addiction for those who have had them!
If you have never had lash extensions, the different types can be confusing. So what exactly are the different types of lash extensions and what look can you achieve from each method?
The individual eyelash extension also known as the classic are one extension to one natural lash, creating more of a naturally-enhanced look by adding length
The Volume lash extensions also known as Russian lash extensions are an application of hand-made fans up to 4D. A fan consists of any where between 2 to 8 lashes attached to a single lash. This creates a uniform, seamless lash shape across the lash line and creates more of a dramatic look. These in comparison to Individual/Classic can appear more fluffy and textured whilst adding length and volume.
American volume lashes are the use of free-style techniques. The American uses three or more lengths across the lash line to create a soft, natural texture that mimics your own natural lashes. Still creating hand-made fans like the Volume/Russians but going up to 6D!
