With winter approaching and no signs of masks coming off anytime soon, the focus on the eyes is more important than ever. Russian volume lashes are one of the hottest trends sweeping the globe — and the best part? You don’t have to be Russian (or even close to it) to rock them!
Let’s learn about Russian volume lashes
Russian volume lash extensions are similar to classic lashes as far as the concept of lash extensions go — adding length, volume, and fullness to the natural lashes. However, the key differences are in material and application. A classic lash extension application technique applies one individual lash extension on one natural eyelash. The Russian volume lash extension technique applies multiple thinner, more lightweight extensions attached to a single natural lash. The diameter of a classic lash extension usually ranges anywhere between 0.07 to 0.09 mm whereas the diameter of each lash extension used in the Russian volume lash extension ranges anywhere from 0.05 to 0.07mm, making it more versatile, especially when creating customizedmega volume lash extensions fans of lashes.
Ok, what are these wonderful lashes made of?
Russian volume lash extensions are made with an ultra-fine, high-end soft synthetic fiber material that is far more lightweight than the material used to create classic lashes. Because the fibers are much thinner, a lash technician can apply more lashes to each natural lash – enveloping the natural lash with anywhere between 2-8 lashes.
This lightweight material, along with applying the lashes in a fan-like shape enveloping the natural lash (as opposed to putting weight on top of them) allows for greater flexibility as well as volume. This is crucial because very few clients have perfectly uniform natural lashes that all grow in the same direction.
Because the goal of Russian volume lashes is to craft a customized look for each client, we never use pre-made fans or flares. All of our fans are handmade and individualized for each client’s existing natural lashes as well as their desired outcome.
