Compared to classic lash extensions, where you could only SAFELY attach one eyelash extension to each natural lash, Russian Volume Lashes (also known as 2D – 8D lashes) breaks through that limitation by having anywhere from 2 to 8 super fine extensions applied to a single natural eyelash, SAFELY.
Russian Volume is an extremely advanced technique that only the experienced and highly skilled technician can offer. Sadly there are a lot of technicians offering this treatment, but they are not correctly trained and are using incorrect techniques, or overloading the natural lashes. Here at Eyelash Excellence Ltd we see this far too often, so please be warned when researching your therapist.
Russian Volume is the use of multiple ultra fine extensions, that are hand created at the time of application by the therapist using their specially designed tweezers. The therapist skilfully creates bouquets of eyelash extensions that are then placed onto the natural lash in a fanned effect, to create extra fluff, coverage and fullness than cannot be created with classic extensions. Although we use multiple extensions, the fan is still placed onto one individually isolated natural lash in a method that encases the natural lash, and results in great retention with zero damage.
A good Russian Volume therapist is not created overnight. To learn this advanced technique takes many hours of practice, as well as additional training courses over the months and years. There are not that many ‘good’ Russian Volume therapists in the UK, due to the intricate and time-consuming nature of the treatment. Therefore, please do your research when looking for your technician
Russian Volume is the most versatile lash treatment that we offer, and will suit most clients. Russian Volume is perfect for the older client with sparse natural lashes, where extra coverage and a soft fluffy look is required (light weight volume set 3/4/D). Russian Volume is also suitable for the client who desires a more glamorous and thicker looking set than can be achieved with classic lashes (heavy weight volume set 5/6D). The level of fullness can vary with Russian Volume, which allows us to create the effect suited to the client’s requirements.
