Definition of classic lashes

Classic eyelashes are as to their namesake ‘Classic’. They are simple and have a natural look. They are applied as one extension on one natural lash to achieve natural enhancement. They are also known as natural eyelash extensions and vary according to the length, thickness and curl of the natural lash or your customizations. 

Who classic lashes are best suited for

Classic eyelash extensions are best suited for those who want a subtle enhancement or those who have thought of trying out eyelash extensions for the first time and want to see if they complement them. If you are not looking for something obvious or bold classic eyelashes are not the best option. They are applied on a ratio of 1:1 which means one extension on one natural lash. 

The ideal candidate should have a minimum of 80% natural lashes. If you have fewer than 80% natural lashes, we can only apply classic lashes to a certain percentage of your lashes. These are also known as ‘lower lash extensions’ and can be used to create a more natural effect.

They enhance a lower lash line or a hooded eye to create a more open-eye look. Our experts and technicians will assess your natural lashes to see if classic lashes look flatter. If you are not perfect, we will recommend the most appropriate style for you.

Tips for maintaining classic lashes

Eyelash extensions are best for those who wake up looking flawless! If you want to maintain your classic lash extensions, you need to take good care of your lashes. Here are some tips for you:

  • Avoid rubbing your eyes and sleeping on your face.
  • Do not pick or pull at your lashes
  • Do not use waterproof mascara.
  • Do not use a lash curler
  • Do not wash your lash extension 24 hours after the treatment
  • Avoid long showers and steam baths
  • Avoid swimming for 24 hours after the treatment.

Definition of hybrid lashes

Hybrid lashes are a combination of volume lashes and classic lashes. They are a great option if you want a more natural look or just to add more volume to your natural lashes. They vary in length and thickness and the size of the fan used. 

Hybrid lashes involve the application of both individual lash extensions and fans of lighter, thinner lashes to the natural lashes, resulting in a fuller and more dramatic effect compared to classic eyelash extensions but less bold than volume lashes.

Who hybrid lashes are best suited for

A hybrid eyelash extension is a versatile option that can work for a range of eye shapes and styles, as they are customizable based on individual preferences.

Here are some scenarios where hybrid eyelash extensions may be a good choice:

  • If you have naturally sparse lashes and want to add volume and texture to your lash line.
  • If you want a more natural-looking lash extension style with volume and texture.
  • If you have a special occasion coming up and want to enhance your look without going for a full dramatic effect.
  • If you are new to eyelash extensions and want to try a style that is not too bold or dramatic.

Tips for maintaining hybrid lashes

As classic eyelash extensions, hybrid eyelash extensions also need aftercare and maintenance. Here are some tips to help keep your hybrid eyelash extensions looking their best:
  • Brush them daily with a soft-bristled mascara brush.
  • Do not get them wet for 24 hours after the application.
  • Wash them regularly after removing eye makeup to prevent bacteria and germs.
  • Avoid using waterproof mascara or any other products that require oil-based removers, as they can also weaken the adhesive bond
  • Avoid exposing your lashes to excessive heat, steam or water.

Definition of volume lashes

Volume eyelash extension is a type of lash extension that uses a technique to create a more dramatic effect than classic eyelash extensions. These are also known as ‘Russian volume’ or ‘mega volume’ because of their origination by Russian lash artists. The models we look at on our social media or other beauty blogs are the biggest consumer of volume lashes. 

Volume eyelash extensions can give you the look from subtle and natural to bold and glamorous depending on the number of extensions used per lash. It provides a fuller effect on the eye without looking heavy or fake. 

Who volume lashes are best suited for

Like classic eyelash extensions, volume eyelashes are also referred to by their applying technique. Instead of applying a single extension per lash, 2 to 5 extensions are applied to each lash. If 2 lashes are applied on one lash, it is known as 2D or ‘double layer’ volume and the ratio increases as the number of extensions makes them 3D, 4D or 5D. 

Volume lases are best suited for you if you have:

  • Gaps in your lashes
  • Short or fine lashes
  • Want fuller-looking lashes
  • Want bold and glamorous lashes

Furthermore, at SmokeShow Studios, our experts and skilled technicians offer you the choice to make your decision tailored by opting for Mega volume or Russian volume. 

These two options are different according to the thickness and diameter of each extension. The Russian Volume technique uses a thinner diameter, creating fans in a span of lengths and curls from 2D to 5D. While on the other hand, Mega volume is a fan of wispy extensions up to 14D.

Tips for maintaining volume lashes

Likewise hybrid and classic lash extensions, volume lashes can also be maintained by the following tips:

  • Be gentle when washing your face and avoid rubbing your eyes. Use a soft cloth or a sponge to clean the eye area and pat it dry with a towel.
  • It is also essential to keep your lash extensions dry.
  • Schedule regular touch-up appointments every 2-4 weeks to maintain the look of your lashes 
  • Avoid sleeping on your stomach or side, as this can cause the extensions to become twisted or fall out.
  • Be gentle when washing your face, and avoid rubbing your eyes. Use a soft cloth or a sponge to clean the eye area and pat it dry with a towel.
  • Oil-based products can break down the adhesive bond and cause the extensions to fall out faster, so avoid using them.


Adding lashes is a quick way to accentuate your no-makeup makeup look for every day beauty. Whether it is your first time getting lashes, or an ongoing maintenance appointment, we do it all.
If you’re a girlie on the go, you need a fresh set of lashes.
