3D Russian Volume Lashes

Russian 3D+ Volume Lashes

January 18, 2018 - 11:00 am

Volume Lashes, also known as Russian Volume Lashes and 3D+ Lashes, has been around the Greater Vancouver area since 2013. It was developed by lawyer turned lash expert Irina Levchuk, who is married to Russia's head of Sephora. Many clients are happy with the natural length of their eyelashes but desire a fuller look as their lashes are fine or scarce. Prior to the introduction of volume eyelashes, lash artists could only attempt to create the desired look with thick and heavy single lashes, which most natural lashes cannot safely support. Because they are lightweight, volume lashes allow for more customization than classic eyelash extensions. They are also darker than the eyelashes in classic sets, adding a striking richness to your overall look.

The volume lash technique allows artists to apply multiple extensions to one individual eyelash. Each extension is extremely light and thin compared to the previous thicker options, creating a fluffy and soft appearance that is not heavy or damaging to the natural eyelash. In addition, despite the common misconception that more volume = more adhesive, these lashes require only a fraction of the glue used with older extension techniques!

One of the best things about volume eyelashes is that the client also has the option to choose how much or how little volume she would like to add to their natural lashes. There are 8 different kinds of volume lash extensions, varying from 2D lashes (2 false lashes per one natural eyelash) to 3D lashes, and even all the way up to 8D lashes (8 lashes per one natural eyelash). The options a client chooses can vary depending on the level of necessity and intensity desired. How can placing so many lashes not cause damage? Utilizing 0.07mm width lashes, a 3D fan is equivalent to one 0.12mm lash. Therefore, it in fact places less strain and weight on the natural lash than the 0.15mm lashes that are most often used in classic lash extensions. One 6D fan is equivalent to one 0.20mm lash, hence these sets are recommended for clients with strong lashes to begin with.
