Volume Lashes: A Comprehensive Guide
Experience the glamour and drama of volume lash extensions, a popular option for those looking full, dark, and fluffy eyelashes. This guide will cover everything you need to know, from the application process to the benefits and how they compare to other lash services.
WHAT ARE VOLUME LASHES?
Volume extensions, also known as Russian volume lashes, are an advanced eyelash extension technique that creates a voluminous and dramatic appearance. This technique involves applying 2 to 5 ultra-thin and lightweight extensions, shaped into a fan, to a single natural lash. The number of extensions in a fan is described as 2D, 3D, and so on.
The process of applying these fans differs significantly from classic lash extensions, as it requires a higher level of skill and precision due to the complexity of creating and applying the fans.
ARE VOLUME LASHES SAFE?
When applied correctly by a skilled professional, these fans will not cause damage to your natural lashes. Damage can occur when technicians apply extensions without considering the individual growth cycle of each natural lash. Hand-made fans, customized to meet the unique specifications of your natural lashes, are the best option for a safe and tailored application.
WHY CHOOSE VOLUME LASHES?
- 1 -
Drama and Volume
Create a stunning statement with dramatic, voluminous lashes.
- 2 -
Volume fans add density and depth to your lash line, making your lashes appear thicker.
- 3 -
Enjoy fluffy and full lashes that fill in gaps and create a seamless lash line.
The application process involves isolating a natural eyelash and attaching the appropriate fan. Hand-made fans have a thickness of .05mm and .07mm, which is much thinner than classic extensions. A high degree of skill and experience is needed to safely and artistically apply these delicate fans.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
With proper care and maintenance, these lashes should last as long as your natural lash cycle, typically between 4-6 weeks. To keep your lashes looking their best, consider the following tips:
- Keep them dry for the first 24 hours.
- Wash and brush them regularly.
- Avoid oil-based products and be careful when applying makeup.
VOLUME LASHES VS OTHER LASH SERVICES
- Classic Lashes: Best for those who are happy with their natural lash count and prefer a more conservative appearance, classic extensions add length and curl without creating volume.
- Hybrid Lashes: Offering the best of both worlds, hybrid lashes provide natural-looking results while incorporating volume fans when needed.
- Mega Volume: For the boldest look, mega volume lashes use 6 to 10+ extensions per fan, creating the darkest and most dramatic appearance. These lashes require healthy, strong natural lashes to support the weight of the large fans.
- Lash Lift: While lash lifts can curl and lift your natural lashes, extensions offer additional length, volume, and thickness.
Volume extensions are a game-changer in the world of eyelash extensions, offering customizable, lightweight, and long-lasting fullness that enhances your natural beauty. Save time in your daily beauty routine and enjoy a confidence boost with these stunning extensions that make your eyes pop.
