Russian Lashes, also known as volume lashes or 3D lashes.
This technique is ideal for ladies that don’t have many lashes and want a fuller look, or even for ladies that want a very glamorous ‘full on’ look.
What are Russian lashes?
These lashes are definitely NOT cluster lashes, cluster lashes are placed along the lash line over several lashes at a time; this is why they can cause so much damage to your own lashes.
Our lashes ‘turn over’ or fall out at different stages during their lash cycle. If these clusters are stuck over several host lashes, the ones that need to come out can’t because they are held in by the clusters and the glue.
Also, the weight of the clusters is very heavy, which most people’s lashes just can’t take, which can cause more damage to the host lashes.
The BIG difference is, Russian volume lashes are individual lashes that are grouped together from 2 to 6 very find grade lashes and placed on one host lash, each lash being isolated as we do for the standard one to one eyelash extensions, not across several lashes, but the REAL BIG difference is, although they are synthetic mink lashes, being very fine grade lashes their combined weight is the same or even less than an average single lash extension so they feel amazing and not heavy! Meaning you can get all the glam without feeling like your eyelids are being weighed down!
Aftercare : Russian Lashes
Taking care of your lashes is important, so they stay looking their best for as long as possible.
Oil-based products are the enemy - avoid them! Oil breaks down adhesive bonds, meaning your lashes won’t last for as long as they should.
Avoid cotton wool at all costs. You don’t want the fluff to get caught up in your lashes (trust us, it’s not a good look!)
Don’t panic if a few lashes fall in the 24 hours after your treatment - this is completely normal while the adhesive is drying. Just take extra care of your lashes during this time.
We recommend you return to your technician for an infill appointment every 2 - 3 weeks.
If you’d like to remove your extensions at any time, you can pop back to see your technician. Removal is super easy and will take no time at all. It’s tempting, but picking your lashes off without professional help is what causes natural lash damage - so don’t do this!
