What’s the Difference Between Classic, Volume & Hybrid Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions are a popular beauty treatment that can make eyelashes look longer, fuller, and more dramatic.

These days, eyelash extensions come in three different styles: classic (single lashes), volume (lots of lashes), or hybrid (a mix of both). The type you choose will depend on your personal style and the desired effect.

For example, if you want to create a glamorous movie-star appearance, then full eyelash extensions are for you. If you just want to have thicker eyelashes without too much fuss, then classic eyelash extensions would be best. Hybrid eyelashes offer an in-between option with subtle length and volume enhancement – perfect for everyday wear!

What are classic eyelash extensions?

Classic eyelash extensions are individual lashes applied one by one with a special adhesive to your natural eyelashes. Each lash is perfectly spaced for a stunning, fanned-out effect that makes eyes appear larger and more defined.

Classic eyelash extension is the most natural-looking option because it gives you lashes that look just like your own. They’re also best for those who want to enhance their eyelashes without spending lots of time or money on other beauty treatments since lash extensions only take about an hour and last three to six weeks.

Classic eyelash extensions are available in a variety of lash lengths, thicknesses, and curls for flexible length options that coordinate with the rest of your makeup look.

What are volume eyelash extensions?

Volume eyelash extensions are individual lashes applied two or more at a time, creating an extremely dense fan effect that makes eyelashes stand out and appear much thicker than they actually are.

This is a great option for those who want to play up their eyes, but also need the lashes to last as long as possible. Volume eyelash extensions can take longer than classic eyelash extensions, sometimes up to two hours or more per application so that each lash is perfectly spaced.

What are hybrid eyelash extensions?

Hybrid eyelash extensions are a mix of classic eyelashes and volume eyelashes. They combine the appearance of individual lashes with the density of two or more lashes to create an in-between effect that still makes eyelashes look thicker without being too dramatic.

This is one of our most popular lash styles because it strikes just the right balance between natural-looking eyelashes and a more dramatic look.

Hybrid eyelash extensions are generally applied in the same way as classic eyelash extensions, but take slightly longer because two or three lashes are usually attached to each individual lash – especially at the corners of eyes where it’s most important that they lay flat against the skin for the most flattering effect.

What’s better, classic, hybrid, or volume eyelashes? 

Whether classic eyelash extensions, volume eyelash extensions, or hybrid eyelashes are the best style for you will depend on your personal preferences and lifestyle needs.

For example, if you’re looking to wear lash extensions full-time then volume eyelash extensions might be a better option since they last longer between refills (usually three to four weeks) compared to classic eyelash extensions (two-three weeks).

If you love a fuller lash look, then volume eyelash extensions are the best option for you. If your everyday makeup routine isn’t too complicated and mascara is one of your must-have beauty products, then classic eyelash extensions might be better suited since they look more natural and are lower maintenance.

If you want eyelashes that offer a subtle enhancement to your lashes, then hybrid eyelash extensions might be the best option for you since they’re a mix of both lash types – giving you longer eyelashes with volume without going overboard.
