Eyelash Extension Thickness Guide

Understanding different types of lash extension curls, thickness, length, and how each function can elevate your artistry.

Know About Lash Thickness

Applying eyelash extensions is more than “one size fits all.” Knowing which lash thickness works with specific eye shapes will aid your brand caters to more markets. This guide will also lead you in creating custom styles that will make you stand out in the industry. We’ve made this comprehensive eyelash extension thickness chart to help you understand more about the topic.

Types of Lash Thickness to Your Brands

We’ve categorized the lashes based on the finished look they give to the customer’s eyes. The difference in the thickness of the lashes gives room for various volumes and finishes, streamlining your market offerings. 

Mega Volume

Mega Volume

When looking for a thick and fabulous set of lashes, go with lash extensions with a thickness of 0.03mm to 0.05mm. Mega volume lashes give the eyes a denser and darker look that brings the focus on the eyes.   

These lash extensions are practically lightweight, so lash technicians can apply numerous lashes on the eyelids without weighing them down. To capture a mega volume look, as many as 20 layers of 0.03mm lashes or up to 15 0.05mm varieties are stacked on each other. The result is a glamorous fan of lashes that rightfully lives up to its “mega” moniker.

Russian Volume

Russian Volume

A recent industry trend that began in Russia in 2010, Russian volume eyelash extensions still have a great audience up to this day. Aimed at giving the lashes a soft, fluffy look, these lash extensions leave the customer confident and feeling fabulous even without wearing makeup or mascara.

Russian volume eyelash extensions focus on filling the gaps left by natural lashes using layers of lightweight extensions. This finish is achievable with multiple layers of lash extensions with 0.06mm and 0.07mm thickness. Fans of up to 5 layers are typical for a stunning Russian volume extension, but we recommend 2 or 3 layers for customers with extremely thin natural lashes.

classic volume

Classic Volume

Wanting to offer a simple yet still beautiful set of eyelash extensions for lash artists and customers? Going with the classic look is the way to go. It provides the right volume, especially for those with thinner natural lashes, while keeping a more authentic finish.

The thickness that works best for the classic look is 0.12mm, 0.15mm, 0.18mm, 0.20mm, and 0.25mm. However, lash extensions with a thickness of 0.15mm stand out as the most popular option, as it leaves a naturally thick look that complements the classic set of lashes. 0.20mm is the second most popular thickness, though it’s best to apply this on thick and healthy natural lashes.    

Tips to Selecting the Right Lash Thickness

Now that we have an idea of which lash thickness works best for a specific look let’s look at how to pick the suitable lashes to use on the eyes.

  • Eyelash extension packaging should indicate the thickness of the extensions. Use this as a measurement on the customer’s eyes to determine the thickness of the natural lashes.
  • Check the condition of the customer’s natural lashes. Healthier and thicker natural lashes can usually handle extensions that are thicker and heavier.

Avoid going over 2 to 3 layers if having extensions for the first time. Asian eyes are not recommended to have more than 5 layers, as they have thinner natural eyelashes.
