What Weight Should Classic Eyelash Extensions Be?

When it comes to classic eyelash extensions, the weight of the extensions should be carefully considered. Too heavy of an extension can cause damage to the natural eyelashes, so it is important to choose the right weight for each individual client. At Lash Jungle, we offer a wide range of prefabricated fans that can be used to create many different styles, from Hybrid to Mega Volume sets. Understanding the curls, thickness, and length of eyelash extensions is key to creating a look that will flatter your client's best facial features.

Generally, it is accepted in the eyelash industry that the safest diameters for classic eyelashes are 0.10, 0.12, and 0.15 mm. The curlier the eyelashes are, the shorter the retention will be since there are fewer natural eyelashes to which the base of the extension can adhere. Bulky eyelashes are thinner fan-made eyelash extensions that consist of 2 to 10 eyelashes per fan. When applying volume to a client, you'll need to consider how much volume she needs in terms of eyelash coverage as well as the right weight for her natural eyelashes.

The C curl is designed for customers with a slight curl on their natural eyelashes and will create an open eye effect. The D curl, due to its spectacular upward curvature, should be used with caution on clients with natural eyelashes at an upward angle or with very hooded eyelids as it can puncture the client's eyelids. At Lash Affair Academy, we offer training options so you can perfect your technique and grow your business with the application of voluminous eyelashes. As an expert in this field, you should closely examine your client's natural eyelashes to find them with the best volume application.

Since only one extension is applied to each natural lash, the appropriate diameter may be larger than the thinner diameters of the eyelash extensions used to give volume to the lashes. For these customers, it is recommended to use extensions with a diameter of between 0.10 and 0.15 mm (for classic ones), while others with stronger natural lashes can use between 0.15 and 0.20 mm (for classic ones). At the end of the day, you're the professional and should make the right recommendations that your client's natural lashes can handle. With Lash Jungle's wide range of prefabricated fans and Lash Affair Academy's training options, you can create beautiful looks that will flatter your clients' best facial features while ensuring their safety.
