Do volume lashes last longer than classics?

There's a lot of confusion in the eyelash industry about retention. Artists are told different things about manufacturers and coaches. We wanted to show you the case study using our LashX method and actual retention. The results here are with the Volume tabs.

We found that customers can spend even more time between fillers with classic lashes because they tend to blend better as they lose hair. When we lose a fan volume, it's a more dramatic loss. This also means that the volume tends to last longer than classic lashes, and it is recommended to refill them every three weeks. If you want to take a look at the volume sets we offer, check out our volume gallery.

Eyelash artists tend to charge more for volume sets than classic ones. Why? Well, voluminous lashes generally take longer to apply than classic lashes. You definitely shouldn't feel bad about charging more for a service that is more complex and requires more time. In addition, many eyelash artists use their own handmade fans, which also increases service time.

However, classic eyelashes often become “arachnid” before eyelashes with volume. And they need fillers, because there are fewer lashes when they break or fall out, there are fewer lashes to maintain the look. Classic eyelash extensions are those in which an extension is applied individually to a natural eyelash. When several natural eyelashes have the same group of eyelashes attached to them, it becomes very difficult to perform the proper eyelash cycles.

Using a soft eyelash brush and a sterile, antibacterial cleanser will allow your client to keep their lashes healthy with softness. Both classic and volume lashes will fall out at approximately the same rate, depending on the natural growth pattern of the client's eyelashes. In this short video, I have summarized the main differences between these 3 main techniques for applying eyelash extensions. The quality of their professional educational products on eyelash extensions and their training courses reflect their long experience in the industry and have a positive impact on eyelash extension professionals around the world.

Since only one extension is added to a natural eyelash in the classic set, it takes the least amount of time out of the three. We have a small jar with the cloths that say “Wash with me” and the towels say “Dry with me”. They are all made for eyelashes and don't pull away. However, voluminous lashes tend to be more popular and are requested more frequently by customers, so you'll want to feel comfortable with them, too.

For example, I recommend the classic style of eyelash extensions for clients who want a natural, professional look. After analyzing each of the eyelash extension styles in detail, some of you will have liked the classic one, others the volume, and others the hybrid style. Volume lashes are formed by combining several individual fan-shaped extensions, each of which is applied to a single natural eyelash. If you're wondering if the fans used in the volume eyelash set can damage your natural eyelashes, the first thing you should do is go to a certified artist.

However, if you prefer a more natural look that simply adds a little “je ne sais quoi”, classic eyelashes would be a better option for you. And remember that, as an eyelash artist, your top priority is to ensure that you maintain the health and safety of your client's natural eyelashes. The classic application of eyelash extensions usually takes 1.5 to 2 hours (if someone tells you they can do it in less than an hour, that's not a good sign). .
