Who knew that the world of eyelash extensions could be so complicated? There are so many different qualities, different styles, and different names. Traditional? 1-D? 2-D? 3-D? Voluminous? The question “What’s the difference?” is one that seems to resound off the walls of spas and salons worldwide, along with other questions about application, basic maintenance, and touch-ups. In order to have and maintain the perfect set of extensions for your desired look, it’s important to know the basics.
Traditional / 1-D Extensions The classic look (or traditional extensions) are for beauties who prefer a more subtle and natural appearance. These basic extensions are sometimes referred to as “1-Dimensional” or “1-D,” because the process involves carefully attaching a single thick, dark eyelash strand to each existing lash. This simply enhances the lashes, giving each a darker and more curled appearance without compromising the eye’s natural appearance. These extensions are perfect for anyone looking to add a basic level of enrichment.
Eyes Au Naturel: Be delicately beautiful. For those who are hoping to softly enrich their natural look, this barely-there set adds a subtle length and fullness that blends right in with your real lashes.
Bat ‘Em Beauties: Have flirty fun! By increasing the length of the middle lashes and creating slightly shorter ones on the sides, eyes appear bigger and more open than ever before, giving you a sweet, youthful appearance.
Lustworthy: Make a statement. Increasingly lengthy, thick lashes are placed all along the lash line with an emphasis on the outer corners, turning you into a sensual goddess with a mysterious edge.
The Lash of Luxury: Leave them speechless. These extra long and voluminous extensions will give you the classy, elegant look you’ve always wanted.
Feminine Falsies: Live strikingly simple. After adding just a few on only the outer corners, you’ll look into the mirror to find your eyes peering back through discreetly beautiful lashes (that no one will ever assume aren’t natural).
