Frequently Asked Questions
What are Volume Eyelash Extensions?
Volume Lash Extensions are also known as Russian Volume Extensions in 2D, 3D, 4D, 5D, 6D.
Using micro-fine extensions, hand crafted fans of varying volume are expertly created right before being precisely adhered on one of your individually isolated donor lashes. This specialised Volume technique creates the unique opportunity of increased density to your lash line while maintaining a soft, fluffy finish so light you can't even feel yourself wearing them.
Why do we ONLY offer Volume in Eyelash Extensions?
Volume Lashes are the ultimate in lash design technology and the most superior for your natural lash health.
Fluffier, more beautiful, healthier Volume Lashes out-perform Classic (or 1D) Lash Extensions in all dimensions: density, comfort, wear ability and health for the native lash. Because of their incredibly light weight and unique bonding application matrix they are practically weightless. In fact, our clients say you can't even feel yourself wearing them. Once you go Volume, you'll never go back!
The volume achievable with Classic Eyelash Extensions is limited to the number of suitable native donor lashes a person has naturally. Humans with thin and sparse natural eyelashes aren't able to achieve a voluminous look with Classics due to inevitable lash damage the weight of a heavy classic extension would cause to the the natural lash.
Volume lashing means we are now able to safely boost your eyelash density to 3-6 times that of your native lash volume without the damage as one 5D fan weighs less than one common Classic Extension. The final flexibility and ultra-light weight of Volume Lashes comes from the micro amounts of adhesive used to adhere the Volume Extension to your natural lash - eliminating all ugly and messy adhesive build-up, uncomfortable/painful wear and scraggly/unkempt look commonly associated with Classic Lashes after medium to long term wear.
What to expect?
On your first visit you'll be asked to complete our new client form and discuss what aesthetic you're wishing to achieve. We have the ability to create a unique look and profile for you ranging from the beautifully natural to the ultra glamorous.
After the consult you will be made comfortable on one of our amazing beds (we even supply a pillow & blanket for your maximum comfort). After a quick cleanse of your lashes, we then apply hydrating gel eyepads and hypo-allergenic medical tape to secure your lower lashes then start applying your damage free Volume Lash Extensions, fan by fan, to acceptable donor lashes until your desired fullness is achieved.
Lash Extensions should be a comforting, painless procedure and often our clients will fall asleep for a little midday lash nap and wake up feeling rejuvenated and glamorous with new, beautiful lashes.
Maintaining your investment
Your new set of Volume Lashes are worry free, weightless and water proof.
With regular infills and a little hygiene know-how, Volume Lash Extensions can become part of your everyday look for decades to come. We recommend booking your Lash Infills for every 2-3 weeks to maintain the fullness and beauty of your Lashes.
In the Eyelash Extension Institute care instructions, you will be given the know how to take care for your Volume Lash Extensions. One of the most important factors with all Lash Extensions is to avoid products containing oils and use only water soluble make up and make up removers such as Micella Water. Excess oils near the extension's bond site will cause the extension's adhesive to dissolve and result in premature shedding of your investment.
