Classic, Hybrid or Volume Eyelash Extensions: What's The Difference?

July 27, 2022 3 min read

Classic, Hybrid or Volume Eyelashes - Do You Know Which Style Suits You Best? What is the difference between them? Don't worry, the blog post below will answer your questions.


1. Classic lashes

Classic eyelash extensions are - as their name suggests- classic. They are simple, beautiful, natural-looking eyelash extensions. They are applied in a 1:1 ratio, which means one extension on one natural eyelash. This allows you to achieve an understated, natural enhancement.

The biggest difference is the result you can achieve with each - classic lashes won't add much volume but they do add length. Classic eyelash extensions give you an even lash line that opens up the eye. It makes you look made-up right from the moment you wake up, and builds on your natural eyelash beauty.


2. Hybrid lashes

Hybrid lashes are a 50 - 50 mixture of both classic lashes and volume lashes. Choosing eyelash hybrid extensions gives you the best of both worlds. You can try volume lashes for the first time and get the beautiful Kardashian look, as it was first popularized by them.

Hybrid lashes give you a varied texture and more volume, but without the sometimes-unnatural look of volume lashes. This look was made popular by the Kardashians, so the lash line is broken and almost "spikey".


3. Volume lashes

Volume eyelash extensions give you a full, better-than-falsies look that gives you some serious glamour and drama. Volume eyelashes (also known as Russian volume eyelash extensions) were recently invented by Russian technicians.

And involve applying a "fan" of lash extensions to one lash. So, instead of the ratio 1:1 as in the classic lashes, you may have a ratio of 1:3 or 1:5. In this way, the luxurious volume is achieved.

5. What’s better, Classic, Hybrid, or Volume eyelashes?

The answer is that there is no better option. it all depends on the style you want to go for and your budget. The distinction between Classic, Hybrid, and Volume lashes lies in the overall appearance, application, the time required, and cost.

Classic lashes take less preparation, which makes them more inexpensive if budget is an issue. This is an excellent option if you want long and light lashes with an everyday natural look for home and office.

Volume lashes need more skill and require an investment of time as these fans are handcrafted in advance. This option is great if you have sparse or naturally thin lashes, perfect for those who want a dramatic look for a wedding, a date, a music festival, or a night out.

Hybrid lashes are a combination of the two styles above, so if you both want a fuller look than classic lashes to fill in gaps, and want a less uniform, more lifelike look than thick lashes this is a good choice for you.
