Classic vs. Volume Lashes
Classic lashes – A method where 1 lash extension is glued to 1 natural lash. This method is also known as 1 to 1 or 1:1. Classic lashes are perfect for clients who already have a lot of lashes, but want to add more length. Classic lashes look more natural.
Volume (3D) lashes – When multiple lashes are applied to one single natural eyelash individually isolating one natural eyelash at a time. Using very thin lashes. If two eyelash extensions are applied to one natural lash it’s described as 2D, if three eyelash extensions are applied to one natural eyelash then it’s described as 3D etc.
This method is also known as Russian volume. The lash extensions used in this method are significantly thinner (Usually a 0.07 diameter lash extension is used) than the lash extensions used for the classic lash method.
Volume lashes are lighter, fluffier and give the client a fuller look. Volume lashes are prefect for clients who don’t have a lot of lashes, have sparse lashes, bald spots or just want a more dramatic look without having to use a thicker lash.
Here is a visual of the difference between classic and volume lashes. When getting a classic lash set a 0.15 or 0.20 lash is applied to 1 natural lash. With volume lashes (2 or 3) 0.07 lashes are applied in a fan shape to 1 natural lash.
This is nothing like “cluster” lashes where a chunk of lashes are glued to a bunch of your natural lashes! Cluster lashes are bad for your natural lash and will cause permanent damage.
Volume lashes on the other hand, are actually lighter than classic lashes. 1 (3D) Volume fan weighs less than 1 classic lash. Also, a lot less glue is used during the volume technique so you don’t feel any weight on your eyes at all. You just see beautiful fluffy lashes.
