Eyelash Extensions Q & A

Individual eyelash enhancements are synthetic fibres which are applied individually to the natural lash using safe techniques. Lashes can be either extended or thickened to achieve a personal desired look.

What is the Difference between Classic Lashes and Volume Lashes?

Classic Lashes

The Classic Eyelash Enhancement technique is where one synthetic lash is applied to one natural lash. This service is not applicable to every client. Lashes must be Healthy and strong for this treatment with no gaps in their lash line.

Russian Volume Lashes 

The Russian Volume Technique was created in Russia. It is an advanced technique by only experienced lash Artists can perfect. Fine, silky, light weight, synthetic lashes are carefully fanned into a bouque to suit each individual natural lash. Weight, and length is considered to ensure natural lashes remain in good condition. This technique takes a long time for Lash Artists to perfect, hours and hours of practice to enable their hand muscles to build up to create a perfect bouque. Russian Volume can create a natural look or a volume dense look. Russian Volume technique is a technique not a style. It is not always full, volume lashes. Russian Volume lashes are feathery and soft and can be altered to suit each client. Russian lashes are lighter than classic lashes enabling the artist to work on weaker lashes or fill in gaps on lash line.

Pre Fanned Lashes

Another option is pre fanned lashes, this is again a bouque of fine, lightweight lashes that have been pre fanned and presented in a box for Lash Artists to perform a treatment which looks like Russian Volume but is a lot quicker in time. A Classic Lash Artist can apply these with little practice. The retention on pre fanned lashes is less than Russian volume and can weight heavier due to the lashes already containing adhesive on the tips to bond them together. The Lash Artist will be unable to ‘wrap’ the Lashes around the natural lash due to them being pre glued.

Who would wear Eyelash Extensions?

Anyone with a good foundation of natural lashes can wear eyelash enhancements. A good foundation means natural lashes are healthy. Imagine building a house on a bad foundation? This would only create problems with the structure and stability. This approach can also be added to the eyelash industry. It is imperative that clients undergo an in-depth consultation, to discuss the options available before the treatment. This will also give the client a realistic approach to their desired look.
