Eyelash Extensions are single strands of synthetic lashes that are attached one-by-one to your own natural lashes. Each synthetic strand is tapered at the tip with a thick base and curled to replicate a natural lash. Lash stylists meticulously and delicately attach one lash extension to one natural lash, one at a time, for a total of 40-100 extensions per eye. Volume extensions, or 2D, 3D, 4D, 5D & 6D are synthetic as well but extremely lightweight, so up to 6 strands can be applied per natural lash.
Advanced stylists have been educated in different techniques that allow even more customization for the client, including coloured lashes, Swarovski crystal accents, and application of up to 750 lashes per eye (volume lashes).
A consultation with your stylist prior to lash application will help you both determine which look is the most suitable for you. You can view more Frequently Asked Questions about eyelash extensions here.
Types of Extensions:
These are the original eyelash extensions! Applied one extension per natural lash, up to 120 extensions per eye! These are easy to care for, can last forever with regular touch-ups (fills), and keep their curl extremely well. They come in several different lengths, curls and thicknesses. Although they are lightweight and you will not feel them while wearing them, they are thicker and not as natural feeling to the touch as volume lashes. These can create a very subtle natural look, up to a stunning dramatic look. A great option for special events, vacations, or everyday wear.
Volume lashes are extremely lightweight, allowing the stylist to apply 2-6 extensions per natural lash, or 200-750 extensions per eye! This can not be done with classic lashes, as they are too heavy to apply more then one extension per lash. Volume lashes are very soft, fluffy and the most natural feeling of all eyelash extensions. They come in several different lengths and curls. These can create a beautiful full yet natural look, up to the most glamorous look you can imagine. A great option for long term wear and weddings!
