Classic is the timeless and original method of lash application where one single strand of extension is applied to one natural lash.
Russian volume is the breakthrough advancement in the lash industry. This advanced technique uses supremely fine fan-shaped extensions. The fan shape gives the illusion of darker at the roots and fluffy at the tips as the width of the fans gets gradually widens.
It is the best-selling look on the lash market right now! It is the combination of classic and Russian volume. Clients can choose 30% classic + 70% 3-D Russian for the most natural look. 50% classic + 50% Russian for the more voluminous look.
The material used for megavolume can be as fine as a lint.
About 10-15 strands of lint-like extension are assembled into a fan.
It was the thing of the past! Nowadays, hybrid Russian volume is the most loved. Mink hair’s diameter is 3-5 times bigger than a strand of Russian volume. Not to mention that mink hair is naturally straight and was permed into the desired curliness. Therefore, if the client washes her lashes or cooks and is close to heat a lot, mink hair will gradually lose its curliness.

It can last up to 5-6 weeks before you lose all of the extensions. However, it is not healthy to forgo having a lash fill every 2- 3 weeks. If you’d like to have a lash extension only for a special occasion, have it professionally removed after 3 to no more than 4 weeks. If you plan on having lash extension consistently, schedule a fill every 2-3 weeks.
24 hours after.
Ideally every 2 weeks. Though the extension adhesive is designed to last for more than 4 weeks, lash extension bond is weakened by force (touching), water, humidity, and oil absorption.
No, not even the ones claimed to be for lash extensions. If you still need more volume, simply ask your stylist for a hybrid Russian or Russian Volume upgrade.
