Volume lash extensions have been gaining popularity in recent years as a more dramatic alternative to classic lash extensions. While classic lash extensions involve attaching a single extension to each natural lash, volume lashes involve attaching multiple extensions to each natural lash, resulting in a fuller and more voluminous look.
Volume Lash Extension Technique
Volume lash extensions are created using a technique known as “Russian volume” or “2D-6D volume.” This technique involves attaching multiple, ultra-fine extensions to each natural lash using a special adhesive. The number of extensions attached to each natural lash can vary depending on the desired level of volume, with multiple extensions being applied per natural lash.
Benefits of Volume Lash Extensions
One of the benefits of volume lash extensions is that they allow for a customized look that can be tailored to each client’s individual preferences. Lash artists can use different lengths, thicknesses, and curl types to create a look that ranges from natural to full and dramatic.
Another benefit of volume lash extensions is that they tend to last longer than classic lash extensions. Because multiple extensions are attached to each natural lash, there are more attachment points holding the extensions in place, which can result in better retention. However, it’s important to note that the longevity of lash extensions can also depend on factors such as the client’s natural lash cycle, aftercare, and lifestyle habits.
Volume Lash Extension Aftercare
In terms of aftercare, clients with volume lash extensions should avoid getting their lashes wet for the first 24-48 hours after application to allow the adhesive to fully cure. They should also avoid rubbing or pulling on their lashes, as this can cause damage or premature shedding. Using oil-free makeup removers and avoiding oil-based products around the eye area can also help prolong the life of the lash extensions.
