What size lashes for volume?
We use different eyelash thicknesses for volume eyelash extensions. This is dependent on the type of volume that you are creating for your client: whether lighter, dramatic or mega volume. Selection will also depend on your client’s natural lash thickness. The different thicknesses available are 0.03, 0.04, 0.05, 0.06 and 0.07.
How long does volume lashes last?
Volume lash extensions last the same amount of time as a full-growth cycle of real lashes. Semi-permanent lashes last roughly 6 to 8 weeks. Bear in mind that everyone has slightly different lash growth cycles. Clients may need to have some light touch ups every three to four weeks.
What’s the difference between volume and Russian Volume?
Volume and Russian Volume are techniques that achieve a similar outcome. The term ‘Russian Volume’ is in tribute to where the technique originated. With volume eyelash extensions, some lash artists use a capping technique where three individual eyelash extensions are applied one-by-one onto a single lash in a fan shape.
With Russian Volume, the fan is formed with the individual lashes before the fan is applied to the single natural lash. You may have seen the terms 2D, 3D or even 6D used when talking about Russian lashes. This corresponds to the number of synthetic lashes used in each fan placed on a natural lash.
Do you put volume lashes on every lash?
Onе fan iѕ аррliеd to оnе nаturаl lаѕh. This will nоt саuѕе аnу damage to the natural lash if соrrесtlу аррliеd. In part, it depends on the client’s preference for how full or natural-looking they want the final outcome. Never apply eyelash extensions to baby lashes that are in the anagen stage of the lash cycle.
How many lashes do you need for volume?
A healthy, regular lash line has approximately 120 natural lashes. The lashes needed will depend on the volume you are aiming to achieve (2D, 3D up to 6D or more). For example, if you are creating a 3D volume set for a client with 100 natural lashes, you will need 300 lashes for the service.
Do classic or volume lashes last longer?
Volume lash extensions will last longer if you know how to correctly apply them, because they are lighter. How long they last depends how often your client comes to see you for infills and how the aftercare maintenance between services is managed.
Should I get classic, hybrid or volume lashes?
It really depends on the clients wishes. Hybrid lashes are becoming more popular, as this style sees volume and classic extensions mixed in one application. But if lash retention is the client’s main desire, then we would always say that volume lashes will last longer and give a fuller effect.
