The Russian Volume Technique

March 19, 2018

The Russian volume eyelash extensions help fill in the gaps between sparse natural lashes that classic extensions could not do. The volume lashes create a fluffy, softer look to the lashes. They have been reported to cause less damage to the natural eyelash, because of the lighter weight. Many people think that more volume means more adhesive, but this is also a misconception about the new lashes. The new lashes require only a small fraction of that which was used with previous extension techniques.

The Russian Volume style is accomplished when multiple lash extensions (2-6 hairs) are hand made, on-the-spot into a fan then adhered to ONE natural lash. If you have 80 natural lashes, you can now have double, triple, or up to sextuple the amount of eyelash extensions. What makes this technique so amazing is that the Russian Volume lash extensions are EXTREMELY thin! Meaning the weight of this technique is often less than or equal to the weight of a Classic eyelash extension. Nothing compares to the gorgeous results of this method It is called the Russian volume method or also 2D, 3D, 4D, 5D, 6D, 7D-eyelashes. “x” stands for the number of eyelashes that can be applied at one time.

Russian volume eyelash extensions do less damage to your natural eyelashes than the classic lash extensions do, because they are lighter weight and they use less adhesive than older versions do. It is highly recommended that you find a technician who is experienced applying Russian Volume Lashes. If you go to someone who does not have a good reputation or is new at the process, you may not get good results. It takes tremendous amount of practice to master this technique. It takes a while even for experienced stylists to get used to the dexterity required for this technique.
