WHAT ARE CLASSIC 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.
The individual lashes used for this style are typically a bit thicker than the ones used for volume styles, precisely because only one lash is applied on top of each natural lash. The most common diameters are 0.15 mm, 0.18 mm, and 0.20 mm. The thicker the lashes are, the more they weigh.
Classic lashes are great for people who:
- Only want length
- Have a lot of natural lashes to begin with
If you have gaps or fewer lashes, Classic extensions will not provide the fullness you may be looking for.
What Are The Pros Of Classic Sets?
- They are excellent for everyday wear
Because there is only one lash applied to every natural lash, that means that these sets aren’t overly voluminous. The effect you get is quite natural, which makes them very versatile and excellent for everyday wear. You don’t have to worry about them being too much, too obvious, or too dramatic or distracting for various environments or daytime wear. Classic lash extensions can very well replace the regular mascara you use, because they allow you to wake up looking great!
- They work well with any type of natural lash
The other thing to consider here is how well lash extensions work with your natural lashes. Unfortunately, other more voluminous styles of lash extensions can be too dramatic compared to sparse, short, light, or thin natural lashes. The effect can be overwhelming for the eyes and for the delicate features of the client. Classic sets don’t create this problem, because they give a more natural effect that can be pulled off by any client and with any type of lashes.
What Are The Cons Of Classic Sets?
- Applying fewer lashes means that gaps will be more visible when the lashes start to fall out
Another potential disadvantage is that the fewer lashes that are applied, the fewer you’re going to be left with as they start to fall out over the weeks that follow. The natural lash growth cycle continues as usual, which means that you’ll be losing both natural lashes and extensions. The gaps are going to be more and more noticeable, especially because the individual lashes tend to be thicker in this style of extensions.
