If your new to eyelash extensions and are looking for a full rundown, check out our blog post: Classic Lash Extensions – The Complete Guide
Classic Lash Extensions
Classic lashes are known for giving a more natural look & effect. They are when a single lash extension is applied to each one of your own lashes (1:1 ratio), giving length, curl & depth to your own lashes.
Classic lashes can be tailored just for you, meaning the length and curl, and be altered to suit your natural lashes and preference. Depending on your preference you can have them matching your existing eyelashes to achieve a naturally thicker look. Alternatively, if you’re looking to add length to your natural lashes, extensions longer than your natural lashes can be chosen.
Russian Lash Extensions
Russian Volume Lash Extensions are a little different to classic extensions and they can be more complex to apply. The ratio of the extensions to natural lashes can vary and is usually described as a lightweight volume set or a heavyweight volume set.
Russian lashes involve applying a fan of 4 or 5 finer lashes to each natural lash. This achieves extra fullness, length, and curl. This is where the difference in Russian & Classic Lashes lies, Russian extensions gives a much thicker and fuller affect whereas, classic lashes usually appear much more natural.
If you’re looking to achieve a more dramatic affect and look with your extensions, then Russian lashes are the ones to go for. Just like with classic extensions you have the choice of using different lengths depending on whether you want to opt for a super dramatic or more natural look. They just won’t look as natural as classic lashes.
Russian volume extensions are highly recommended if you are looking to create a full and extravagant look. It is also perfect for those of you who have sparse natural lashes, where extra coverage is wanted or even needed.
We hope this blog has helped you to understand the best lash extensions for your needs. We recommend going for Classic Lash Extensions if you’re looking for a thicker but natural look and if you’re looking to create volume and thickness to go for the Russian Volume Lash Extensions.
