What are classic natural eyelash extensions?

Classic eyelash extensions consist of a synthetic extension applied to a natural eyelash. Classic lashes look and feel more natural than eyelashes with volume. They are ideal for people who already have long and thick natural lashes. Classic eyelash extensions are those in which individual extensions are applied to each natural eyelash.

It is sometimes referred to as “one-to-one” because it is an extension of an eyelash. An eyelash artist dips the end of an individual extension in adhesive, then applies it above or below the natural lashes and repeats until each medium, mature eyelash is completed. Classic lashes apply an extension to a natural eyelash, while eyelashes with volume are multiple extensions that are applied to a natural eyelash to create a more fluffy and voluminous look. Eyelash extensions have become a staple in the beauty industry, and many women use the ease of extensions to minimize the time spent in front of the mirror every day.

An experienced eyelash artist will ensure that the weight of each eyelash fan with volume does not exceed what each individual eyelash can support and will ensure that each fan does not adhere to more than one natural eyelash. If you're new to the world of eyelash extensions, choosing the right eyelash extension style that best suits your tastes can be a bit overwhelming. The individual lashes used for this style are usually slightly thicker than those used for volume styles, precisely because only one tab is applied to each natural eyelash. Many eyelash artists consider flat lashes to be better than classic lashes because they are lighter and therefore better for eyelash health.

You can also ask your eyelash stylist to simply emphasize your natural lashes by extending each one by 1 to 2 mm. Classic eyelash extensions are ideal for anyone who wants to improve enough to look amazing, but still wants a natural look. This customer is using thicker eyelash extensions, this is the highest volume they can achieve with Classic Natural Full Set. Since only one eyelash is applied to each natural eyelash, this means that these series are not too bulky.

Especially for customers with sparse lashes who have limitations on what they can get with a classic set, the volume set offers the subtle glamour they may be looking for. To achieve a natural look with eyelash extensions, you should extend the length of your natural lashes by approximately 2 mm. Thicknesses greater than 0.15 are not recommended, and 0.15 is only suitable for very strong natural lashes.

Hybrid lashes offer a great balance for customers who want a spectacular or natural look. The classic eyelash application usually takes 1.5 to 2 hours and the results should be soft, natural-looking lashes.
