classic lash extensions

what are classic lash extensions?

Classic is a technique used in eyelash extensions where one synthetic lash is carefully applied to each natural lash. A variety of lengths, curls and thicknesses are used to provide a textured and flattering set to every client. Classic lashes should make people double take whether or not they are actually yours. In other words, look put together without looking made-up

frequently asked lash questions

  • You can! However, you should avoid high temperatures like a hot shower or hot yoga. Exposing your new extensions to these conditions such as steam, sauna, hot tub, could result in poor retention.
  • Clean your extensions and eyelids gently, as instructed by your lash technician, and use a designated lash cleanser. Oils from skin or cosmetics can get onto your extensions and break down adhesive otherwise. Failure to clean your lashes will not only result in poor retention, but the build-up of dirt can lead to poor retention and other problems.
  • It depends. Factors like your natural growth cycle, cosmetics, oily skin, sleeping on your side, hormonal changes, stress and more factors can affect retention. Generally, clients return around 3 weeks for a fill. Usually at this time, there are about half of the extensions remaining from the full set.  
  • Keep oil-based products away from direct contact with your extensions and limit the use of oil-based products on your face and hair as much as possible. Oil breaks down the lash adhesive. In some cases, it may be necessary to avoid oil-containing products altogether.
  • Always return to your technician for removal or let them grow out naturally. Never attempt to remove the extensions yourself.

Yes!  There are some additional factors to note which will be indicated during the online booking process.  Choose an appointment option under “Lash Fill – From Another Salon” when you book online.

Absolutely! Classic lashes give a more natural look that mimics the effect of curled lashes with perfectly applied mascara.  It’s a great option for those just starting their lash addiction. Volume lashes provide more density and fluff.  There’s more for the lash artist to play with here to create a variety of looks ranging from wispy, dense, textured, to full on strip lash drama.  


We recommend cruising our Instagram page and picking out photos that you’re drawn to. Of course the state of your natural lashes also can play a factor in what type of lash set will work best.  


When in doubt, send us an email with some of your information and we will help pick the right appointment type before you book.  

Yes!  Of course this depends on the type of lashes (Classic, volume etc.) as we each have different certifications and skills.  Our booking system is updated with the types of appointments that each lash tech offers.

It depends on a couple factors: the desired look you want and the level of maintenance you’re comfortable with.  Another factor is the condition and type of natural lashes you have to start with.


A few questions we ask our clients is:  Do you use mascara on a daily basis? Do you use a lash curler?  Do you have naturally long lashes?  Do you like the idea of minimal upkeep?  Do you absolutely despise mascara?

We can help decide – just chat with one of our lash mavens to figure out the best way to enhance your lashes. 

Sometimes you just want more – we get it!   You absolutely can book a different appointment type for your fill depending on availability. This goes with switching to any style – just let us know when you want to change it up.


Keep in mind that there will be a transition period over a couple fills depending on your natural lash cycle.
