Russian Volume Lashes consist of applying multiple lash extensions to each natural eyelash in a fanned shape. This can result in having 200- 500 eyelash extensions applied to each eye, rather than the regular 80-100 extensions per eye with the classic 1:1 eyelash extensions.
The extensions used are even lighter, and finer than Siberian Mink Eyelash extensions, which means multiple lashes can be applied without damaging the lash, looking “clumpy”, or feeling too heavy and unnatural. When multiple volume lashes are applied, they create a full and natural feather-effect look. 2D = approximately 200 lashes per eye, 3D = approximately 300 lashes per eye this can continue upto 5D.
This technique can be done up to 8D, but anything over 5 D can be quite over dramatic.
How long does it take?
This technique contains a lot of nuance and requires a significant amount of skill compared to classic eyelash extensions.
As a result Volume Lashes can take a little longer than my other services, roughly 2 hours for 2D-3D set, 3 hours for 3D-4D sets and around upto 4 hours 4D-5D sets .
How long do they last?
As there are significantly more lashes per natural lash (between two and five, depending on the service), Volume Lashes will last much longer before you will notice that you require a refill.
Volume Lashes are known to last six to seven weeks or indefinitely if maintained with refills.
How do I look after them?
After care is very minimal and you can do all your everyday activities as usual after the initial 24 hours after application. For the first 24 hours after your treatment, you cannot let the eyelash extensions get wet/near moisture. Brushing is recommended once a day after your shower, just to tidy them up a little when required. You will be provided with an aftercare sheet and eyelash brush after each appointment (included in cost).
