"If eyes are the windows to the soul then lashes are the curtains" --Traci S
Eyelash extensions are fun to wear, easy to maintain and make you look fabulous--Who knew that the world of eyelash extensions could be so complicated?
There are so many different qualities, different styles, and different names. Traditional? Classic? 1-D? 2-D? 3-D? Volume?--What's the difference?
Simply put, "Traditional and Classic" are synonyms for the same technique whereby single strands of synthetic fiber, silk, mink or, fox fur are curved and designed to replicate a natural eyelash. They are then placed onto the client's own natural lashes one-by-one to either extend the length or thicken the lash line. These are a favorite among women who prefer a more subtle or natural appearance.
A typical application can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours for a full set--depending on the amount of natural lashes and the skill of the stylist.
ALL women are different. Lashes should be customized to your eye shape, natural lashes and of course personal preference. Below is a description for each "type" of look:
Natural - lashes are "enhanced" by adding a subtle length and volume. Suitable for those who do not want their lashes to be noticeable.
Cute - longer lashes are placed on the center of the eyes making the eye look bigger, more round and open.
Sexy - longer lashes are placed on the outer corner of the eyes to emphasize the width of the eyes, for a sultry and more exotic look
Gorgeous - for those who want high "volume", length and curl in their lashes--a glamorous look
