In this beauty blog, we’ll dive into the pros and cons of each treatment. Our goal is to help you make an informed decision that suits your style and beauty goals.

Lash Extensions

Lash Extensions give have many different styles & types to choose from. Your Lash Artist will decide which look to go with based on the clients desired outcome & the health of your natural lashes.

There are Classic & Volume lashes with styles ranging from Natural to Dramatic.

Classic Lashes

Classic Lashes are performed by adhering one lash extension to 90% of natural eyelash. This option is better for someone with full, healthy lashes (any length).

Volume Lashes

Volume Lashes are performed by using fans. Each fan can be 4-10 lash extensions attached to one real lash giving a more filled in, darker look. This option is better for someone with sparse lashes (since they are light in weight) or someone wanting a fuller, darker lash line.

Are Volume Lashes Longer than Classic Lashes?

No, Volume Lashes are not necessarily longer than Classic Lashes. The same lengths are available in both types. Because Volume Lashes are fans, they take up more space than Classic Lashes making them fuller and a better option for someone with sparse lashes.

Lash Lift Cons

  1. Limited Volume: Lash lifts primarily focus on curling the lashes, so if you desire additional volume, lash extensions may be a better choice.
  2. Less Dramatic Effect: Lash lifts provide a more subtle enhancement compared to lash extensions, which may not be ideal if you prefer a bold, statement-making look.
  3. Not Ideal for Short Lashes: Lash lifts work best on lashes with a decent length. If your natural lashes are very short, lash extensions might be a better option to achieve the desired length and volume.
