No matter if you are a first time lash user, or a seasoned lash wearing addict, it is important to understand what is on your eyes.
What are lashes made of?
Most commonly lashes are made of synthetic mink: however, there is real mink, silk, silky mink (mix of silk and mink), sable and cashmere. Each type of lash feels different to touch and looks different in color.
At LASHIDOL we use synthetic eyelashes. They are dark in color, soft to touch, and maintain their curl well.
What are Classic, Hybrid and Volume lashes?
Classic, Hybrid and Volume lashes are the different styles of lashing. Classic lash sets consist of one lash extension that is applied to each individual natural lash. Volume lashes consist of 2-25 lash extensions, made into a fan, that is applied to each individual lash. Hybrid lashes are a mix of classic and volume styles.
- Classic lashes create a more natural, simple look.
- Volume lashes are great for creating a dramatic look.
- Hybrid lashes give a great balance of the two.
Talk to you lash artist about your lash goals and they will recommend the style best for you.
What Color should I get?
