If you have been getting lash extensions, or if you are a lash tech experienced with extensions, chances are that you’ve either heard about “volume lashes” or have seen them.
I know I have. Trust me when I say, I was extremely curious. They sound and look almost “too good to be true.”
Volume Lashes originated from Russia, after a high demand for volume sparked and blossomed into pushing the limits with lash extensions.
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, depending on the product, technique or both.Volume lashes can also be reffered to as 2D, 3D, 4D, or 5D, or other terms, depending.
Unlike normal lash extension formulation 1 natural lash : to one lash extension, 2 lashes are refereed to as 2D, 3 lashes: 3D, etc. 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 Mink Eyelash extensions. However, multiple lashes can be applied without damaging the lash, looking “clumpy”, or feeling too heavy and unnatural. But depending on the product, brand, or incorrect technique, this can happen!
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. 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.
