Although you can find several types of lash extensions Sydney from Fancy Lash, their basic types are classic, volume, hybrid and mega volume. So, it’s better for you to understand the difference between them first.

1. Classic Eyelash Extensions

Classic lash extensions are the most basic lash extensions. They are traditional extensions that look the most natural.

They are applied 1:1 as they are heavier in weight (often 0.10gm – 0.20gm) and therefore it is safe to apply only one extension to one natural lash.

Classic extensions can be given a more dramatic look depending on the condition and quantity of the natural lashes.

By wearing classic lash extensions, you can avoid wearing mascara altogether if you want to and you don’t even look as if you’re wearing strips all the time.

2. Russian Volume Lash Extensions

Volume or Russian volume is a more progressive technique that has become a hot trend in the world of lash extensions.

Russian volume lash extensions are much less weighty (often 0.05gm – 0.07gm) and so, more than one extension can be attached to one natural lash.

Your lash technician can apply various methods to create a ‘fan’ of lash extensions before applying them to the natural lashes, due to which a fuller and more voluminous set of extensions is formed.

While more extensions can be attached, these lash extensions can even be made to appear as natural or as dramatic as you wish based on the quantity and condition of your own natural lashes.

3. Hybrid Lash Extensions

Hybrid lashes are a quite new term in the world of lash extensions but actually it’s a technique that lash stylists are using since years and has fast gained a great popularity.

They are simple and plain, and are a blend of classic lashes and Russian volume lashes. They are perfect if you want length of the classic lashes and the volume of Russian lashes if your natural lashes are thin.

Obviously the best hybrid lash extensions at Fancy Lash create extraordinarily rich, dark, voluminous and long sets of lashes.

Thus, if your natural lashes are not very thick or long, this technique is certainly useful for you.

However, serums, mascara and oily products should not be used with any type of volume lash extensions with homemade fans, since these products can close them, even though the mascara was designed for lash extensions.

But the combination of the two techniques creates such a fuller look, that you’d hardly feel like using mascara.

4. Mega Volume Lash Extensions

Mega volume lash extensions are certainly not for the weak-hearted.

As suggested by the name, they are dense and glamorous, and are very similar to the Russian volume; but the difference is that they are produced by using lighter weighing lashes and far bigger ‘fan’ of lashes can be formed.

These lashes are also good for those having thin lashes.

Hopefully your confusion will be over now and you can make an informed decision while choosing your lash extensions.
