The size of your lash extensions will be determined by their thickness, length, and weight. Let us go through those three aspects one after the other.

Lash Thickness

Eyelash extensions are manufactured with different diameters to serve different purposes. Lash extensions that have a thickness of above 0.20mm are considered too much for anyone’s natural eyelashes to handle. The thickness of 0.15mm and below is safe for most people’s natural eyelashes. 0.15mm is common for classic eyelashes, 0.10mm on fine lashes, 0.07mm, 0.06mm, and 0.05mm thickness in the case of volume lashes.

 The number of lash extensions that should be used in clients will vary depending on the thickness of their natural eyelashes. In case you are not sure about the thickness of your natural eyelashes, compare them to the thickness of your eyelash extensions which are always labeled. That information will give you a rough diameter of your natural eyelashes. Always consider the design and condition of your natural eyelashes before deciding on the appropriate thickness of the lash extensions to use. 

Knowing the diameter of your natural eyelashes will help you to know the weight of lash extensions that your natural eyelashes can handle. Also note that, as you age your natural eyelashes grow thinner and thinner. Individuals who are 50 years old and above have thinner lashes than those younger than them. Asia’s natural eyelashes are also thinner than other ethnicities. Such individuals are advised to use eyelash extensions of diameter 0.10 to 0.15mm while those with strong natural eyelashes can use lash extensions of diameter 0.15 to 0.20mm.

How Lash Thickness Creates Specific Looks.
  • 0.25mm classic look. Classic eyelash extensions of this thickness create a look that is alluring even though it might be too heavy for a lot of people’s natural eyelashes.
  • 0.20 mm classic look. Classic eyelash extensions of this thickness are perfect for individuals with natural eyelashes that are healthy and thick. They are the second most common thickness for classic extensions.
  • 0.18mm classic look. Classic eyelash extensions of this thickness create a look that is a little bit bolder than the lash extensions of 0.15mm thick.
  • 0.15mm classic look. Classic eyelash extensions of this thickness are the commonest. They create a naturally thick look.
  • 0.12mm classic look. Classic eyelash extensions of this thickness are used on individuals with natural lashes that are thinner. They create a softer look than the 0.15mm thickness classic eyelashes.
  • 0.10mm Russian volume and classic look. Lash extensions of this thickness are used on volume 2D to 3D or as classic 1D on natural eyelashes that are very fine.
  • 0.07mm Russian volume look. Lash extensions of this thickness are used for 5D.
  • 0.06mm Russian volume look. Lash extensions of this thickness are used for 5D.
  • 0.05mm mega volume look. Lash extensions of this thickness are used for 6D.
  • 0.03mm mega volume look. Lash extensions of this thickness are used for up to 20D.

The Volume Of Lash Extensions

Classic lash means that one eyelash extension is to be fixed on one natural eyelash, in other words, one to one ratio. 2D on the other hand means that two lash extensions are to be fixed on one natural eyelash, 3D means that their lash extensions are to be fixed on one natural eyelash, the list goes on. From 3D onwards they will fall under the category of Russian volume. Letter D in this case stands for dimensions.

Classic lashes are the most natural lash extensions, from 2D onwards more depth is added to the eyes and the eyelashes stop looking natural.  More than 3D should not be used on first-timers and more than 5D should not be recommended for people from the Asian ethnicity. They have thin natural eyelashes which will easily fall off when the lash extensions applied on them are heavier than expected.

The Weight Of Lash Extensions

Trying to weigh an eyelash is next to impossible. They are very tiny parts of the body. This makes it difficult to choose the correct eyelash extensions for yourself or your client based on their weight. Volume lash extensions should be created with the correct measurements in mind for them to fit the user perfectly. Let us examine in detail how the lash extension diameter can create volume lashes effectively. We will also look at how the same diameter will help in figuring out whether you are eligible for volume lash application or not.

 The higher the diameter of the lash extension, the heavier and thicker an extension is. There are fan conversion calculators that can help when calculating the weight of volume lashes. The calculator will show if your volume fan is equal to the weight of a certain classic width of a lash extension.

Importance Of Eyelash Extension Weight
  • Applying too heavy or thick lash extensions is not healthy for natural eyelashes. In cases where the eyelash extension has a greater diameter than the natural eyelashes, there won’t be enough attachment area for the lash extensions. This means that the lash extensions may hang and the result will be the natural eyelashes not being able to withstand the weight. They will end up falling off.
  • Lash Extensions that weigh more than expected will end up hanging instead of curling. This will create an ugly look rather than the intended attractive appearance.
  • Lash Extensions that are too heavy for the natural eyelashes may lead to downward growth of the natural eyelashes.
  • Application of lash extensions that are heavier than the natural eyelashes may make the lash extensions tangle continuously. That creates an extra task of detangling them on a daily basis.
  • Very thick lash extensions will weaken the natural eyelashes and that may lead to permanent hair loss.

Generally, understanding how to calculate the weight of lash extensions is important when trying to rule out the best lash extension for specific natural eyelashes. That will save you from damaging your natural eyelashes and give you a glamorous look. Starseed offers the best lash tools that will help you to achieve that look you have been desiring.

How To Calculate The Volume And Weight Of Lash Extensions.

The D that is used in describing lash extensions stands for dimensions. The letter describes the number of eyelash extensions strands that were used for one volume fan (the number of eyelash extension strands that should be fixed on one natural eyelash). In order to calculate the correct volume fan size, you need to understand the thickness by weight relation of lash extensions. For instance, if 0.15mm is the strand thickness to be applied on one natural eyelash, lash extensions that are 0.03 mm can be used safely as a 20D volume fan. 

You may be tempted to assume that two lash extensions of 0.10mm are equal to one lash of 0.20mm. That is not right. Placing two lash extensions of 0.10mm next to each other leaves a lot of spaces between them compared to placing one 0.20mm lash extension. The air between the two 0.10mm lash extensions weighs nothing. That makes two lash extensions of 0.10mm lighter than one 0.20mm lash extension. 

For instance in the case where 0.10mm of lash mink weighs 0.09g, while 0.20mm of the same mink lash weighs 0.34g. It is better to use up to four pieces of 0.10mm mink lashes as opposed to one 0.20mm mink lash.

Lash Extension Length

There are more than enough lash lengths one can choose from. They range from 8-15mm. The volume of such lengths will vary, depending on where you buy them. But generally lash extension length is standard everywhere. The length of lash extensions offers different ways to experiment with lash extension styles. Lash extension lengths can either be short, medium, long, or very long.

  • Short lash extensions. They range between 8-9mm. This length of lashes is very natural and mostly applied in the inner corner of the eyes.
  • Medium lash extensions. This type of lashes range between 10-12mm. They create a natural mascara look.
  • Long lash extensions. This type of lashes range between 13-14mm. They create an oomph! look.
  • Very long lash extensions. This type of lash extension ranges from 15mm and above. They create a dramatic look.

Depending on your eyes, the length discussed above will either look shorter or longer than they may look on others who have the same length of lash extensions applied on them. So don’t compare your look with others, everyone will have their own special look. Some people prefer mixing longer lash extension lengths from 14mm or even longer than that to create a volume lash. Always choose a length that is not more than 2-3mm longer than your natural eyelashes.

Factors To Consider When Choosing Your Lash Extension Length
  • Your taste and preference. Do you prefer a natural, flirty, professional, or dramatic lash extension length? The length of lash extensions that you apply reflects a lot about you. Your preference may also be influenced by the kind of occasions you are going to.
  • The length of your natural eyelashes. How long your natural eyelashes are will determine the length of lash extensions that is safe for you. Anyone with a natural lash length that is long may go for lash extensions of 12 or even 13mm if they want a natural look. Those with shorter natural eyelashes may opt for lash extensions of 10 or 11mm if they want a natural look. Always consider the length of your natural eyelashes before choosing the appropriate lash extensions for your eyes.
  • The amount of weight your natural eyelashes can handle. Long and dramatic lash extensions are very beautiful, but can your natural eyelashes sustain their weight? The well-being of your natural eyelashes should always come first. Very long eyelash extensions are definitely heavier than medium and short lash extensions. If your natural eyelashes carry more weight than they can handle, they will end up falling off or even causing permanent hair loss.
  • The shape of your eyes. People have different shapes and sizes of eyes. Different lengths of lash extensions will look differently on every eye shape. For instance, individuals with deep-set eyes should go for longer lash extensions than people with prominent eyes. This is because the lash extensions of people with deep-set eyes need to go a little bit deeper from the surface of their roots in order to be seen. The same applies to people with monolid and hooded eyes. Those individuals with prominent eyes can go for shorter and flattened lash extensions because their eyes are protruding.

In case you are not sure about your natural eye shape or length, you can always consult a lash technician around you. Lash professionals can suggest a flattening length of lash extensions that you can comfortably use.
