What to Know About Lash Extensions in 2021 – Trends and Styles

Beauty comes in many forms. For some, it’s a full face of makeup and the latest in trending beauty products. For others, it’s a more subtle and natural look. This look could incorporate anything from skincare and makeup to brows, hair, and lashes. 

Batting your lashes has always been the key to getting what you want, especially if you have long lashes that really bring your eyes to life. However, as with anything, aging affects your lashes. Although eyelashes don’t grow as long as the hairs on your head, they have a life cycle. They fall out daily and run on a much shorter life cycle than the hair on your head. 

Many women look for fuller, longer eyelashes in the form of beauty products and lash extensions to fill in where the eyelashes may fall out. There are various styles, shapes, and types of eyelash extensions at your disposal, so how do you know what is right for you? Take a look at some of the hottest lash extension trends and styles for 2021 below! 

4 of the Hottest Lash Extension Trends in 2021

1. Hybrid Lashes

Hybrid lashes give off a fuller look than what a classic set would offer. While they don’t provide that intense volume that a full set would give your lashes, hybrid lashes include combining the two. 

By using classic and volume lashes, lash stylists can give off a seamless look with customization based on the shape and volume that their clients are looking for. 

2. Volume Lashes

The problem many women have with lashes is filling in sparse areas. No amount of mascara or serum can create lashes where they simply aren’t. 

In this type of situation, volume lashes come into play. With 2 to 8 super-fine lash extensions attached to a single natural lash, volume lashes create a fluffy, feathered look. 

3. Extreme Volume Lashes

If you’re looking for Hollywood-style glam, these lashes are definitely for you. Using the original Russian volume lash technique, stylists bond up to 5 lashes to each natural lash, extending past the natural lash by 1 to 2 millimeters. 

This process also intensifies the lash line as though the client is wearing eyeliner (without actually having any on!) On top of that, it won’t necessarily damage the natural lash either, as the volume lashes are much lighter than a classic lash extension.


4. Textured Lashes

Adding some flair to your lash extensions will give off a unique expression for each client. By mixing lashes with various curls, diameters, and lengths, you can create a custom feathery look without making the lashes look fake. Completely symmetric lashes are out, and textured, natural lashes are in!

Keep Your Lashes Healthy

Let’s be honest. Striving for healthy skin, hair, and nails is something we all want. This beauty self-care can apply to lashes too, which means taking care of your lashes before and after getting extensions, as well as proper care of the extensions themselves to extend their lifespan. 

You’ll also want to avoid using mascara and oil-based makeup as well as adequately cleaning your lashes daily with a foaming cleanser and lash-safe makeup remover — ensuring your lashes look full, natural, and gorgeous! 

Customization is key, and beauty isn’t a one size fits all concept. Finding the right look for you will make or break your experience. Freshening up your look with eyelash extensions is a great way to change up your look and provide some much-needed self-care.
