Russian Volume is a technique developed in Russia. It is the use of ultra-fine extensions (0.03, 0.05, 0.06, 0.07 – and sometimes 0.10), that are picked up in a “multiple lash pickup” technique, to create a “fan” or “bouquet” of eyelash extensions. These are then applied to the natural lash to give a fuller look than can be created with Classic lashes, where we can only apply one extension to one natural lash (i.e 0.12, 0.15, 0.18, 0.20).
The use of these “ultra fine” lashes allows us to keep the lash weight light, yet still create added volume, and with the fan or bouquet effect we can create extra fluff and coverage to give that “volume” effect that our clients desire.
The level of volume that we use can vary, depending on the look desired by the client, as well as what their natural lashes can safely support – so although we have the ability to create more volume, we must always ensure that we do not overload the natural lashes and cause damage.
The Benefits of Russian Volume:
Firstly, I think that the progression into learning the art of Russian Volume is a ‘must have’ for any experienced Lash Artist – BUT, this technique MUST only be undertaken by the “experienced artist”
“You must be a Master at Classic Lashing, before you can attempt to Master Volume”
You can now cater for every client you meet:
(N.B – when I used the term “she”, I am using this as a “generalisation” only. Eyelash extensions can also be worn by men too, and are therefore an amazing treatment for both sexes).
Lash technicians tend to attract those clients with very sparse natural lashes, and who dream of a thicker, fuller look. Classic lashing allows us to apply only one extension to one natural lash, and on a client with very sparse natural lashes, she will never get the look she desires. Her set can still look sparse; as one-on-one extensions will do little to create extra fullness or hide her “gappy” lash line.
However, by using multiple extensions onto one natural lash, she can now see that extra fluff and coverage that she dreamed of.
Good lash artists will also see a lot of clients who have been the victim of poor lash technicians, and as such will spend a lot of time not only re-educating clients, but trying to repair the work and damage caused by others. As a result of this, you will see a lot of damage and frazzled natural lashes, and lash lines with “bald” areas, where severe damage has been caused – usually as a result of the overloading of extensions.
The volume technique is perfect for this type of client where a lightweight, fluffy set is required so that the damaged lashes can repair underneath.
Increase of lash revenue:
The application of Russian Volume is an art that requires skill and perfection, and we must charge our clients accordingly for our skill. Russian Volume is a “luxury” treatment and, as such, you will attract those clients that are prepared to pay a higher price for this service, which in turn will increase your lash revenue.
You will corner the market:
Russian Volume is such a skilled technique to master, and only those that have the passion and determination will succeed. It takes hours of practice and patience to perfect, and many technicians will give up and choose to go back to Classic lashing only.
Lash technicians attending volume courses have no idea how hard the technique is and assume that because they are “good” classic technicians, then volume will be easy – but they are in for a big shock! Some may think they will walk out of the class having mastered the technique, ready for a full day of volume lash clients that will leave with the most amazing set of Russian Volume lashes, that will rival some of the top lash artists out there: – they couldn’t be more wrong!
From the above I am sure that you can now see why Russian Volume is such a popular treatment within the eyelash extensions industry.
