Russian Lashes are the latest lash technique new to the UK, also known as volume lashes or 3D lashes, its becoming one of the most sought-after treatments at my London salon. 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.
Ok, so having more than one lash placed on to a host lash isn’t exactly new, layering or feathering as its sometimes known, is a standard technique which most technicians are taught when they do their advanced training. Not to mention cluster lashes (awful lashes that can cause a lot of damage to your own lashes), so what’s the difference, I hear you ask?
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 are even finer than the real mink lashes that are also very popular at the clinic.
This new technique in individual eyelash extensions is proving very popular and I’m pleased to be able to bring this technique to Designer Lashes London.
If you look at the images on this page you can see different examples of Russian volume eyelash extensions, from natural looking, to a full on glamour, no mistaking, these really do look like false lashes but you get to keep them on a lot longer than false strip lashes, and they do look fantastic if you like the very glamorous look.
You can even go for our new spiky looking Russian Lashes for something a bit different.
