Ready to take your lash game to the next level? At Browns & Co, we offer two fantastic options to enhance your lashes: lash extensions and lash lifts. In this Lash Edit we will explore the pros and cons of each treatment, helping you make an informed decision that suits your style and beauty goals. Let’s dive into the world of fabulous lashes and find the perfect fit for you!



Lash extensions come in various styles and types, allowing your lash artist to create the look you desire based on your natural lashes’ health and your desired outcome. There are three main types: Classic Lashes and Volume Lashes and Hybrid lashes, a blend of both classic and volume.


Classic Lashes: This technique involves attaching one lash extension to 90% of your natural lashes. It works best for individuals with full, healthy lashes of any length.

Volume Lashes: Volume Lashes use fans that can consist of 4-10 lash extensions attached to one real lash, creating a more filled-in and darker look. Volume Lashes are ideal for those with sparse lashes or anyone seeking a fuller, darker lash line.

Hybrid Lashes A blend of classic and volume lashes the most popular choice for most of our lash clients at Browns & Co.



Length and Volume: Lash extensions instantly add length and volume, giving you a glamorous and dramatic look.

Customisable: With a variety of lengths, thicknesses, and styles, lash extensions can be tailored to achieve your desired look, whether you prefer a natural or bold effect.

Long-Lasting Results: When properly cared for, lash extensions can last several weeks, allowing you to enjoy stunning lashes for an extended period.

Ease of Removal: Our lash professionals can safely remove lash extensions for you at any time, ensuring a hassle-free experience.

Time-Saving: Wake up feeling beautiful without needing to spend time applying makeup.



Maintenance: Lash extensions require regular refill appointments every 2-3 weeks to maintain fullness and ensure a flawless look.

Reactions: Although rare, some individuals may experience allergic reactions to the adhesive used for lash extensions. It’s recommended to have a patch test before getting a full set if you’re prone to allergies or sensitivities.

Cost: Lash extensions are generally more expensive upfront compared to lash lifts, considering the initial application and regular refills.



A lash lift is like a perm for your eyelashes, giving them a lifted and curled appearance. Lash lifts typically last for 4 to 6 weeks, requiring minimal maintenance.



Natural Look: Lash lifts enhance your natural lashes by giving them a beautiful curl and lift, creating an effortlessly elegant and wide-eyed appearance.

Low Maintenance: Unlike lash extensions, lash lifts require minimal upkeep, with results lasting 4-6 weeks, depending on your natural lash growth cycle.

Time-Saving: With a lash lift, you can skip the daily curling routine, as your lashes will stay beautifully lifted and curled even without mascara.



Limited Volume: Lash lifts primarily focus on curling the lashes, so if you desire additional volume, lash extensions may be a better choice.

Less Dramatic Effect: Lash lifts provide a more subtle enhancement compared to lash extensions, which may not be ideal if you prefer a bold, statement-making look.

Not Ideal for Short Lashes: Lash lifts work best on lashes with a decent length. If your natural lashes are very short, lash extensions might be a better option to achieve the desired length and volume.
