Russian Lashes, also known as volume or 3D lashes, are among the most sought-after treatments at our London salon. They have a 3-dimensional look, and we attach anywhere between 2 and 6 lashes. This technique is ideal for ladies who don’t have many natural lashes and want a fuller look or even those who wish for a glamorous ‘full-on’ look.


OK, so having more than one lash placed onto a host lash isn’t exactly new; layering or feathering, as it’s sometimes known, is a standard technique that most technicians learn when they do their advanced training. Not to mention cluster lashes (awful lashes that can cause a lot of damage to your lashes), so what’s the difference, I hear you ask? These Russian volume lashes are 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 lashes.


Our Russian 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 the clusters and the glue hold them in. Also, the clusters’ weight is hefty, which most people’s lashes can’t take, which can cause more damage to the host lashes.

What’s the Difference Between Russian Lashes and Classic Lash Extensions?

The BIG difference is that Russian volume lashes are individual lashes grouped from 2 to 6 very fine-grade lashes and placed on one host lash. Each lash is isolated as we do for the standard one-to-one eyelash extensions, not across several lashes. As such, Russian eyelashes provide far better coverage than typical extensions. 


Still, although they are synthetic mink lashes, the REAL BIG difference is they are very fine lashes; their combined weight is the same or even less than an average single synthetic lash extension. So they are even more delicate than the natural mink lashes that are also very popular at the clinic. This new technique in individual eyelash extensions is proving very popular, and we’re pleased to be able to bring Russian Volume lash extensions to Designer Lashes London


Looking at the images on this page, you can see different examples of Russian volume eyelash extensions, from a natural look to full-on glamour. No mistake; these mega-volume lashes do look like false lashes. Still, 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. They also eliminate the need for mascara. As you can see, Russian eyelashes are truly the way to go!


We also offer our new spiky-looking Russian Lashes that can give a more natural look to the lashes. The choice is yours! One thing you can rely on, we don’t do the same style for everyone; we design the look you want. Our Russian eyelash extensions are unique and one-of-a-kind.

How Long Do 3D Russian Volume Lashes Last? 

Russian eyelash extensions will fall off with each natural lash as part of the lash cycle, like classic lash extensions. The natural eyelash cycle is usually between 4 and 6 weeks. 

Practising appropriate aftercare can help prolong the lifespan. Most clients find they need an infill or top-up at around three or four weeks to avoid the lashes looking uneven.

How Long Does It Take To Apply 3D Lashes?

It takes our lash technicians one and a half to two hours to apply a complete set of lashes using the Russian Volume technique.

Patience pays off, and Russian eyelashes are well worth the process. If you’re looking for eyelash extensions in London, book your appointment with us today!
