Which Type of Eyelash Extensions Should You Choose?

If you’ve been thinking of getting eyelash extensions to really make your eyes pop with definition, you may feel confused as to the many types available. Here at EyelashCanada, we do all kinds of eyelash extensions. In fact, we’re the only company in all of Canada to offer four types: 3D, single, semi-flare and strip lashes. This means you have access to a variety of options depending on your unique beauty needs. If you’re unsure which type to go with, here is a brief overview of each type and why they may be best for you.

33D Volume Lashes. These involve attaching three strands of thin silk or mink extensions to every one of your natural eyelashes. If you’re going for the au natural look, this is it. You get a full appearance but you never look fake or overdone. The one exception to this is if you’re a blond. This tends to be a better option for brunettes. You don’t need them refilled quite as often as other types; in fact, they typically last between six and seven weeks. This is your longest-lasting option.

eyelashburlington1Single Lashes. The most popular option for those looking for a natural boost to their eyelashes, single lashes offer up to 150 pcs for each eye. And you’re never limited to color – you can get anything from black, brown and red to purple, blue and yellow! You can also choose varying thicknesses suitable to your natural thickness. These lashes typically stay on for about four to five weeks.


semi-lashesSemi Clusters. Want a smoky, dramatic look? Try semi lashes, which are ideal right before you go away on a long vacation. They don’t last as long as other types – only up to two weeks before needing a refill – but if you want to make a lasting impression, this is the way to go.



striplash-1Strip Lashes. Although strip lashes have the shortest life span – one week or so – these lashes offer an excellent solution for women who want to look fabulous for a special event, night on the town or a long weekend away with the girls. You’ll make a splash with these lashes but you don’t have to make the commitment to a longer-lasting extension. Again, you’re not limited to the colors and styles you select. Try natural, feathers, rhinestones and even rainbow colored to truly stand out from the crowd.
