classic lashes

Classic lashes involves the process of carefully adhering a single extension in a 1:1 ratio on the natural lash at approximately .5 of a millimetre away from the eyelid skin.

Classic lashes are perfect for those who are looking for a subtle yet simple enhancement. The great thing about classic lashes is how they can fit into your everyday routine but can still range from a very natural, noticeable and dramatic outcome.

Remember, extensions can only be applied to what natural lashes you already have, so if you have sparse lashes and wish to fill out your lash line, classic eyelash extensions won't be the most suitable fit for you. You'll want to read on about Hybrid and Volume extensions. If you are someone that does have a lot of natural lashes and you’re looking for more of a defined curl, bit of length and slight thickness - classic is very suited for you!


volume lashes

Volume lash technique involves very light weight extensions applied in fans to the natural lash, creating dark sweeps of lashes producing density. This style originated in Russia and Ukraine, hence the name being Russian Volume. Recent developments in lash technology have introduced volume lashes as the lightest on the market, an amazing opportunity for lash stylists to create the most flexible lash extension sets for you. At Sweet Pixie Salon, all volume fans are handmade during the appointment, meaning we are able to create lashes (fans) tailored to each individuals natural lashes, eye and face shape. Fans can range between 2 to 8 super fine extensions creating either a more fluffy yet natural result to a more ‘dramatic’ and dense lash look. Volume lashes can be created and bonded beautifully to any natural lash—thick or thin, slender or strong, volume lashes really are great options for everyone. For those with sparse lashes, when these fans overlap they cover any gaps in the lash line and create an illusion of having more lashes than you actually have. As for clients that have a lot of natural lashes, you might ask why would I benefit from a volume set instead of classic or hybrid? Uniformity, density and boldness giving that dark dramatic lash line more thickness. 

The fan technique used in volume sets is special because it grabs and wraps to your natural lashes perfectly for great retention. You might wonder why volume takes a lot longer than classic? There is so much skilled technique, precision and time taken to create perfect hand made fan’s throughout the appointment. Volume is much more tedious and skilful than a single classic lash application, hence why there is a price and time difference.  

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING WITH A BIT MORe thickness than classic, without the full volume COMMITMENT?

hybrid lashes

The Hybrid technique is a combination of two different lash application techniques incorporated into one set of lashes; blending classic and volume fans. Hybrid is perfect for someone that wants to add that bit more coverage than classic, but unsure of being comfortable with a complete dramatic full set.
