When applying a classic set of eyelash extensions, we are able to apply as many extensions as there are healthy natural lashes to your eyes. For some of our clients, this works out perfectly as they have thick natural lashes. But for others who may not have many lashes, or have gaps, this can be disappointing and some lash specialists might think to use a thicker diameter. WRONG. Increasing the diameter of the extension will not create a fuller look. This can be damaging as well as look and feel heavy. However, there’s a new technique taking over the lashing world right now. It is known as Russian Volume.
The Russian Volume technique is a meticulous method in which we safely apply anywhere from 2-6 very fine, lightweight extensions per natural lash.
Many who have heard about the new volume technique have various questions like is it safe for the natural lashes? Is it too heavy? Will it damage the natural lashes? With the Volume technique you can actually apply more lashes, using less weight. This allows us to create fuller, lusher lashes. Especially for those who do not have many natural lashes. Volume lashing is indeed a technique. It is not a type of lash. We use certain diameters for the volume technique. But it’s all about how your Volume-certified Lash Specialist applies them. With volume, we are still perfectly isolating one natural lash, but instead of applying a single classic lash, we apply a handmade “fan” or “bouquet” of thinner diameter lashes that are hand-crafted to customize the perfect weight for every single natural lash resulting in a more luscious fuller look.
