Classic Lashes

The classic lash style is a timeless choice that never goes out of fashion. It involves applying a single lash extension to each natural lash, resulting in a natural yet enhanced look. Classic lashes are perfect for those who want to add length and volume while maintaining a subtle appearance.

Hybrid Lashes

Hybrid lashes are a combination of classic and volume lashes. Classic lashes use a 1:1 ratio, applying one extension to one natural lash, while Volume lashes involve applying multiple extensions (usually 2 to 9D) to a single natural lash. This style involves applying a mix of single lash extensions and handmade fans to create a fuller, more textured look. Hybrid lashes are ideal for those who desire a bit more drama without going overboard.

Angel (Wet) Lashes

The Angel lash style, also known as the Wet lash style, is all about achieving a glossy, wet appearance, as the name suggests. Unlike traditional lash styles using matte black lashes for a natural look, this trend involves glossy lash extensions, giving them a shiny, freshly showered appearance, true to its name.

Various lash technicians have unique techniques for the Wet lash look, but the key technique is the closed fan or the "spike". Instead of fanning out the lashes for volume and uniformity, this method creates a more striking, textured effect. Another essential element for the bold and dramatic Wet look is the curl. It requires a special curl like L, L+, or M to achieve that wide-open, dramatic eye appearance.

Angel lashes are perfect for those aiming to make a bold statement and stand out, offering a distinctive, eye-catching allure.

Wispy (Kim K) Lashes

Wispy lashes, or some call Kim K lashes, are all about crafting a soft staggered un-uniform effect. This style plays with different lash lengths and uses spikes to create a dynamic, up-and-down look like our natural lashes. Typically, the spike lashes are 1-3mm longer than the shorter ones, adding a playful variation.

Each lash artist may have their unique approach to determining where and how thick, and how long the spikes should be, making wispy a versatile and freestyle lash look. Wispy lashes are ideal for those seeking a fresh, glamorous appearance - a noticeable departure from the uniform, voluminous look. It's the perfect choice to embrace a new vibe and infuse a touch of individualized glam.

Anime (Manga) Lashes

The Anime lash style, inspired by captivating Japanese manga characters, embodies long, dramatic lashes that evoke a wide-eyed, doll-like allure. This style relies on longer, thicker, and more curled lash extensions to achieve a stunningly impactful appearance.

Manga lash look is quite similar to the wispy lashes, but in more polished version. Just like the wet look where spikes play a key role, in anime lash looks, the spikes are the centerpiece. However, what distinguishes anime lashes is the more pronounced, thicker, longer, and bolder spikes. They create a significant contrast against the shorter lashes, resulting in an enchanting, captivating gaze. This style is perfect for those who seek a standout, eye-catching look.

Brown Lashes

Brown lashes offer a subtle twist from the conventional black lash trend. Unlike black extensions that can sometimes be overpowering on lighter complexions, brown ones gracefully complement natural beauty without dominating the look.This style uses lash extensions in various shades of brown, creating a softer, more natural appearance.

Brown lashes are particularly well-suited for individuals with light features, especially blondes or redheads. Brown lashes beautifully enhance eye colors like blue, green, hazel, or brown, bringing out a radiant and youthful glow. The softer tones impart a youthful radiance, exuding timeless elegance and a fresher look, particularly suitable for the middle-aged.

For clients new to lash extensions or those who want a fresh look, these shades are a delightful choice, offering a fantastic alternative to standard black lashes with a subtle yet impactful change. The brown shades add an enchanting and elegant touch that brightens the eyes. With a classic but never out-of-style charm, darker brown shades are perfect for those seeking a distinct yet subtle enhancement.


Clumpy lashes - Kpop idol lashes

The K-pop idol lash style, also known as spider leg or spidery lash, is renowned for its distinctive and captivating look, particularly focusing on the eyes. A key feature of K-pop idol makeup is the emphasis on eyes, and the spidery lash style plays a crucial role in achieving this aesthetic.

Unlike the conventional approach of avoiding clumps when applying mascara, the goal here is to intentionally group lash strands together. This technique creates bold strands with spaces in between, akin to spikes, to achieve a doll-like, open-eye appearance.

To achieve this clumpy yet natural look, consider using spike lashes in a 1:1 application onto real lashes. Opt for lashes that are not too long for the most natural result.

Alternatively, you can achieve this look without applying false lashes by using mascara. Start by curling your lashes with an eyelash curler and a spoolie, ensuring all lashes point outward and upward evenly. Apply mascara, then before it dries, quickly seize a pair of point tweezers and press a small bundle of eyelashes together to combine lashes into sections, form a single "lash". Remove a moderate amount of mascara to prevent clumping for a neat, thin lash effect - this technique mirrors the distinct look that K-pop idols often go for.
