This is how you conjure up volume eyelashes like a pro
Beautiful volume eyelashes are no longer a beauty secret. The technology has evolved over the years and continues to evolve. It has been shown that customers with short and thin eyelashes can also achieve an expressive look. Here's everything you need to know about volume eyelash extensions - the latest trend in the industry.
WHAT ARE VOLUME LASHES?
The eyelash volume technique is very popular worldwide. With this technique, you can radically transform natural, expressionless lashes, adding density and volume for maximum impact. It requires a lot of knowledge and many hours of training. With the eyelash volume technique you can achieve an effect from 2D eyelashes to 12D eyelashes by attaching not one but two or twelve eyelash extensions to one natural eyelash. The more extensions are glued on, the thinner the diameter should be. Volume lashes accentuate the lash line, fill in crevices between the lashes and emphasize thin natural lashes. The light hair does not require much glue and the volume technique does not damage the natural eyelashes.
STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO NATURAL VOLUME LASHES
The technology for voluminous eyelashes requires a lot of training, experience and precision. Using quality materials, including the best eyelash extensions and glue, helps achieve the best results. Here you will find a step-by-step guide:
- The eyelash stylist must analyze the structure and type of the client's natural eyelashes. After that, the expert will recommend a suitable style including the material, curls, lengths, diameter and color.
- The preparatory work includes removing make-up and cleaning the eye area with a special eyelash shampoo. The eyelashes are prepared with a primer before application.
- The lower lashes are held in place with an eye pad during application so they don't get in the way.
- The eyelash stylist starts to create fans of eyelashes with tweezers. Each fan is individually attached to a natural eyelash. This process is repeated up to 300 times per eye.
- When the work is completed, the expert carefully removes the pad and combs the eyelashes with a brush.
Although the adhesive hardens almost instantly, the final polymerisation process takes some time. In the first few hours it is advisable not to touch the eyelashes.
HOW LONG DOES THE VOLUME EYELASH EXTENSION TREATMENT TAKE?
The time depends on many different factors:
- Number of customer's natural lashes
- The desired eyelash extension volume technique - the more volume, the more time
- The condition of the client's natural eyelashes
- The experience of the eyelash stylist
- Customer behavior - constant turning, talking, etc.
A high-quality eyelash extension with natural volume takes about 2.5 hours and with mega volume eyelashes about 3 hours or longer. Work in such a period can be achieved in a few months with daily practice.
Conny Lashe's tip: When it comes to eyelash extension volume technique, don't chase speed - speed comes naturally. Clients need to understand that quality work cannot be done in 60 minutes.
WHAT IS THE BEST MATERIAL FOR RUSSIAN VOLUME LASHES?
The volume depends not only on the technique, but also on the material used:
Mink Lashes: This is the most common type of Russian eyelashes as the eyelash extensions give the appearance of thicker eyelashes due to their diameter. They are the best choice for an intense look.
Cashmere eyelash extensions: They are the lightest and finest synthetic eyelashes. They are the best choice for customers with thin eyelashes. Cashmere lashes create a fluffy look.
WHAT LENGTHS SHOULD I USE FOR VOLUME LASHES?
The length of the eyelashes varies between 6 and 14 mm. Due to the added weight, we recommend not using lengths longer than 14mm. Eyelash extensions of 7 mm and 12 mm are considered very practical. They do not burden the lash line and are perfect for natural eyelash extensions in everyday life. Different eyelash styles require different lengths to be combined on one eye.
WHAT DIAMETERS SHOULD BE USED FOR VOLUME LASHES?
Here, the most suitable material should be used for a new set. There is a simple rule: the more eyelash extensions are attached to a natural eyelash, the smaller the diameter should be. The largest diameter for volume lashes is 0.10mm and the smallest is 0.03mm. Eyelash extensions with diameters of 0.04, 0.05, 0.06, 0.07 mm can also be used for the eyelash volume technique.
WHICH CURLS SHOULD BE USED FOR VOLUME LASHES?
The most appropriate curl in volume eyelash extensions should be chosen by the stylist together with the client. The main parameters for selection are the shape of the eyes and the desired look of eyelashes. The chosen eyelash extension is very important for an excellent job. The curls are identified by letters: J, B, C, CC, D, DD, L, LC, LD, M. A professional eyelash stylist usually uses C, CC, D, DD curls for volume lashes. It always depends on the lash look - sometimes L, LC, LD Curl or M Curl eyelash extensions are used.
VOLUME TECHNOLOGY VS. CLASSIC EYELASH EXTENSIONS
The "classic" technique gives the natural eyelashes the desired length. The volume eyelash extensions emphasize the growth line of the eyelashes and make them look voluminous and dense. Many clients not only want to maximize the length of their lashes, but also want more volume. Volume eyelash extensions are optimal for this and can look very natural when done by an expert. Natural volume lashes are glued in a fan shape, which is very difficult to learn without professional training. Russian eyelashes are thinner and lighter than the eyelash extensions used for Classic Lashes.
The eyelash extension volume technique requires the attachment of more than one hair to a natural eyelash. To someone who is inexperienced, it may seem that the increased volume is damaging to the natural lashes. In many cases, however, a mega-volume eyelash can weigh less than an eyelash extension with Classic Lashes. This means that the natural hair is not damaged.
When choosing between the eyelash extension volume technique and classic eyelash extension, consider the wishes of the customer. If the client has naturally thick eyelashes and does not want to increase their density, the classic technique will help to get the desired length. If the client wants to add more fullness and length to the lash line, volume lashes are the best choice. Volume lashes are also suitable for customers with naturally thick and long lashes to conjure up additional volume.
HOW LONG DO VOLUME LASHES LAST?
If we talk about proper care and quality work of the eyelash stylist, the eyelashes should last about four weeks on average. During the filling, the gaps are filled with new fans after the natural lashes have fallen out. The time between refill appointments is different for everyone. Most customers come after four weeks and others only after 6 weeks.
EYELASH CARE WITH VOLUME EYELASHEXTENSIONS
Care is very important for eyelash extensions to last as long as possible. We recommend observing the following rules:
- Do not go swimming the first day after the treatment
- Don't rub and pull your eyes
- Do not use an eyelash curler
- Don't use mascara
- Don't sleep with your face in the pillow
- Do not use oily cosmetic products
- Wash and brush the volume eyelash extensions daily
