What Are Volume Lashes?
Volumation is the technique of adding multiple eyelash extensions to one single natural eyelash to create depth, volume, and texture utilizing the Xtreme Lashes Lash Calculator™ to calculate accurate design opportunities.
Volume lashes also referred to as Russian Volume, Hollywood Volume, 2D Volume, 3D Volume, 4D Volume, 5D Volume, 6D Volume are NEW and advanced technique in the eyelash industry and are taking the beauty industry by storm. Volume Lashes is a revolutionary lashing technique where 2 to 6 super fine extensions are applied to one single natural eyelash according to the condition and health of your eyelashes – SAFELY – creating a soft, fluffy and full look. The result can be as natural or as dramatic as you wish.
What is the application process? How is it done?
Volume or Volumation technique allows us to apply multiple extensions to ONE isolated natural lash. With a Volume set, the lash extensions used are much finer and much lighter (in weight) and applied in fans of 2-6 lashes to one of your natural lashes, depending on the amount your natural lash can handle. So for every 1 of your own lashes, you get 2-6 times of lashes. Another important part of a proper lash application is the weight of the extension in relation to your natural lash. When multiple volume lashes are applied, they create a very fluffy and very full natural feather-effect look.
What makes Volume Lashes different from Classic or Traditional Lashes?
Volume lashes are extremely lightweight, allowing the stylist to apply 2-6 extensions per natural lash, or 200-750 extensions per eye! This can not be done with classic lashes, as they are too heavy to apply more then one extension per lash. Volume Lashes are very soft, fluffy and the most natural feeling of all eyelash extensions. 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. They come in several different lengths and curls. Volume Lashes are perfect for clients who have very sparse eyelashes and still want it to look natural or for clients who already have a lot of eyelashes but want extremely glamorous look. Actual amount will vary based on the look you decide upon. These can create a beautiful full yet natural look, up to the most glamorous look you can imagine. In addition, despite the common misconception that more volume equals more adhesive, these lashes require only a fraction of the glue used with classic/traditional extension techniques.
How long do they last?
Re-Lash appointments are necessary in maintaining the look of your lashes. When applied properly, eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelash. As your natural lashes began to shed, you will notice the fullness of your eyelash extensions decrease. Volume Lashes will last longer before you will notice that you require a refill. These appointments depend on your natural lash shed cycle, hormones, lifestyles, care & maintenance. Due to different variables there may be certain times when you may need more lashes than usual. People typically shed between 1 and 5 natural lashes each day, depending on their individual growth cycles. Each of our natural lashes has a life span of 60-90 days and each of our natural lashes is at a different point of its growth cycle. The rate of your growth cycle and how well you maintain them determines the frequency. Refills or touch ups are needed approximately every 2 to 4 weeks. The look can be maintained indefinitely with proper care and maintenance.
