Why classic lashes are better than volume?

Classic lashes are perfect for customers who already have a lot of eyelashes, but want to add more length. Multiple lashes are applied to a single natural eyelash individually, isolating a natural eyelash at a time with very fine lashes. Voluminous lashes last longer than classic lashes and last 6 to 8 weeks with proper aftercare, depending on the natural eyelash growth cycle. Both styles require fillers after 2 to 3 weeks.

For a volume set, the cost per full set is higher than that of a classic set because it requires more time and total lashes. Voluminous lashes are lighter, fluffier and give the customer a fuller look. Voluminous lashes are perfect for clients who don't have a lot of eyelashes, have sparse eyelashes, bald spots, or simply want a more dramatic look without having to use thicker lashes.

Many eyelash artists consider flat lashes to be better than classic lashes because they are lighter and, therefore, better for eyelash health. It all comes down to whether you prefer a more dramatic eyelash look or prefer to maintain smooth, natural-looking lashes. However, the volume set gives the impression of lasting longer, since the fans cover more of the lash line and even if you lose something, the illusion of a thicker lash line remains. They're great for adding texture; some expert eyelash artists use simple flat lashes as “spikes” when creating a kimkei look.

Volume lashes refer to a set of eyelash extensions that uses fans with several extensions to increase the volume of each natural eyelash. Both styles of eyelash extensions require the same level of maintenance: you should wash them gently with a suitable brush and cleanser every morning and every night. When you've decided to try the hybrid eyelash set, go to a beauty salon that has extensive experience in classic and volume series. They are first formed into fans, which is where the desired number of eyelashes unfold and, like a “bouquet”, are applied to a natural eyelash with adhesive.

Classic lashes require little preparation, so they're more affordable if the budget is important to your customers. Going to an experienced artist also ensures that freshly made fans have the perfect weight for your natural lashes. 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. Classic eyelashes are the most common type of eyelash extension, which are used for more traditional and natural eyelash looks.

Keep in mind that Mega Volume isn't right for everyone: eyelash artists will inspect your natural lashes to determine if your natural lashes are strong enough to support mega-volume fans.
