Eyelash Extensions - Classics, Russians or Hybrids?

February 28, 2020

If you've thought about getting eyelash extensions before, you've probably seen the words 'Classics' 'Russians' and 'Hybrids' thrown about. But what exactly is the difference between the three?

Classic Lashes

Classic lashes are the most natural looking eyelash extensions. If you're looking for the "has that woman got eyelash extensions or just really long lashes?" illusion, then classics are for you. They are applied 1:1, one lash extension on one eyelash. The result is a beautifully classic lash that gives you a lil extra oomph.

Classic lashes take an hour and a half to apply. Depending on your lash cycle, infills may be required every 2 weeks, which only take an hour.

Russian Lashes

If you're after loads of volume and drama, Russian lashes are the way to go. As opposed to Classics, where one lash extension is stuck onto one eyelash, Russian extensions are where multiple lash extensions are applied to one eyelash. They can be applied up to 5:1 (5 extensions on one lash). This means each eyelash is really close together, creating the voluminous 'false lashes' look.

Russian lashes will take 2 hours to apply. Infills take one hour and may be required every 4 weeks to maintain the look, depending on your lash cycle.

Hybrid Lashes

Hybrid lashes are (you guessed it) a hybrid of Classics and Russians. They offer more volume than Classics, but more of a natural look than Russians.

Hybrids can take up to 2 hours to apply (depending on the desired look), with infills taking 1 hour every 3 weeks.
