Russian Volume Eyelash Extensions Course
(2 day course)

Russian Volume Course

Our Russian Volume Eyelash Extensions Course is suitable for those that have never taken a Russian volume course before or feel that their initial volume training was poor. This course is “Advanced Lashing” therefore students taking this course must already be trained in Classic Individual Eyelash Extensions. Russian volume is an add on skill to Classic lashing, therefore students are required to be a competent Classic Eyelash Artist with at least 6 months Classic Lash experience.

If you have not completed your Classic Individual Eyelash Extensions training yet, then do not worry, we offer this course HERE!

This is a 2 Day Russian Volume Eyelash Extensions course.

  • Day 1 is home study covering the course theory.

  • Day 2 is practical classroom training: Morning session working on 4 pickup techniques. Afternoon session is practical application onto a mannequin head.

The key to the volume technique is creating perfect fans, and this takes time to perfect. As such, we choose to use a mannequin head in our Russian volume eyelash extensions course. This takes the pressure off the student, who can then focus their time on creating perfect fans with correct attachment. Students do not need to worry about completing a full set of eyelash extensions on their model, instead work solely on 100% perfection and finesse of their new volume skills.

The Russian Volume eyelash technique has taken the lash industry by storm. The use of handmade lightweight volume fans allows the therapist to create varying levels of fullness on their clients to suit their desired effect.

Russian volume is such a versatile treatment that now allows the lash artist to cater for every client out there. If your client has damaged or weak/sparse natural lashes, we can use Russian volume fans to create a fuller look. Maybe that client already has thick full lashes but wants an even more dramatic look, we can use Russian Volume to create that effect.

Russian volume is an advanced form of lashing, as such should only be attempted by the competent lash artist. Sadly, many are bypassing this super intense training, trying to learn off YouTube or teach themselves and then “butchering” their clients.

The key to this technique is safe lashing, using the correct lash weights so that we do not overload the natural lashes. However, we are seeing severe damage caused to clients from those artists either poorly trained or bypassing correct training, see images below:

Here at Eyelash Excellence, we have the benefit of being experts at this technique. Frankie Widdows (our course developer) has spent her career perfecting the volume technique which is taught in our Russian Volume Eyelash Extension course. As an international lash judge, she is at the top of her lash game especially when it comes to her niche (Russian Volume). Take our Russian Volume Eyelash Extensions course and your will be learning the most technical and in-depth Russian Volume techniques out there. You will be taught absolute perfection and competition fans from the very start. Setting your volume work apart from your competition. You will be hard pushed to find another Russian volume eyelash extension course that is as in-depth and as technical as this, check out what is covered below.
