Volume lashes are a new technique that entered the North American lash industry in 2013. Volume lashes (aka Russian Volume) have gained popularity in Eastern European areas such as Russia and Ukraine for about three to five years! Now it has started to get hot among young trendsetters in North America!
So, what makes volume lashes different from classic lashes? What would be the best option for me?
With classic 1:1 eyelash extensions we can achieve amazing looks that crush what even the best mascara can offer. We have always been limited by the amount of natural lashes a client has as well as the different amount of lashes on each eye. This pushes us to lash to the weakest eye to maintain symmetry. For years our clients have wanted more! Our only options were longer and thicker diameters, which became problematic when our clients natural lashes could not safely support these extensions from pressure.
Volume technique has become the answer!
Volume techniques allow us to apply multiple extensions to one isolated natural lash. The Russian Volume technique masterfully achieves this with far thinner lashes than we have typically used. The result? A full, lush lash line that appears fluffy and soft and maintains the health and safety of our client’s natural lashes.
Many clients were skeptical with the new volume techniques. They would ask, "Will this damage my natural lashes?" But the answer is no, and here is why:
With volume, we are able to use less adhesive and thinner lashes (0.05-0.10 mm) than with classic and achieve a better hold. This is because with Multi-Pick Up; volume, the “bouquet” or “fan” of the thinner lashes “hug” the natural lash making more contact. A minimal amount of adhesive is needed (.5 – .1mm or less than a single bead of adhesive).
Volume has many different names and can be created in different ways “Capping (with a thinner and usually shorter lash placed high or low on the original extension), “Multi-lashing (placing thin diameter extensions of the SAME length, one-by-one on the natural lash aka “stacking”)’, and “Multi-Pick Up” approach (The Russian/Ukraine Volume techniques including: twisting/pinching, karate chop and pick up and place” versions of this approach).
With different volumes (2D-8D) and designs, no mascara in the world can duplicate true Russian volume lashes for you. Of course, taking care of your health is very important as well. I like to go the extra mile and take a health supplement. It is all natural, and ensures I am giving my body the nutrients it requires on a daily basis.
