Which Eyelash Extensions Are Right for You – Classic or Volume? Visit Eyes on You in Tampa, FL
Eyelash extensions come in a wide variety of lengths, thicknesses, and styles, and at Eyes on You Salon and Spa in Tampa, Florida, we offer all of these options to our guests. Everyone’s eyes are different, and a style of lash extension that looks perfect for one woman, might not be the best option for another. At Eyes on You, our experienced cosmetologists are trained and certified in lash extension application, and can help you find the style that will best complement your eye and face shape while creating the look you desire.
There are two main types of eyelash extensions that we’ll help you choose from: classic lashes and volume lashes.
- Classic – Classic lashes extend the length and thickness of your natural lashes, where one lash extension is applied by isolating one natural eyelash at a time. This method is also known as 1 to 1 or 1:1. This creates a look more on the natural side, and is ideal for those who want to enhance the look of the lashes they already have.
- Volume – Volume lashes appear much thicker than classic lashes, but are actually lighter in weight. Two to four eyelash extensions are handmade into a fan shape and are safely applied by isolating one natural eyelash at a time using very thin lashes and minimal adhesive, to create a more dramatic, fluffy appearance. This method is also known as 2D, 3D, or Russian volume and gives even those with sparse natural lashes a full, voluminous look.
The difference between classic and volume eyelash extensions is the size of the lash and how many are applied. When getting a classic lash set, a single 0.15mm-diameter lash is applied to each natural lash. With volume lashes, two, three, or four 0.07mm-diameter lashes are applied in a fan shape to each natural lash. This is nothing like “cluster” or “flair” lashes, where a chunk of lashes are glued to a bunch of your natural lashes! Cluster lashes are bad for your natural lashes and will cause permanent damage.
Eyes on You eyelash extensions are of the highest quality and are applied using pharmaceutical-grade adhesive to ensure their longevity exceeds that of typical extensions. Not only that, but you can trust that won’t be damaging to your natural lashes.
