The volume technique was developed in Russia, hence the name. It involves the use of ultra fine lashes that are applied to the client in a fanned effect, to create full and fluffy effects.

Each fan is skilfully made by the therapist at the time of application, and attached in a method called the ‘wrap’, which ensures a seamless bond and excellent retention.

This technique is suitable for experienced classic trained (1 on 1) eyelash technician, as well as those who have already taken a volume course and would like to perfect their pick up, application and technical knowledge.

Students must have a minimum of 6 months Classic lashing experience and be a confident, competent and busy lash tech. This technique requires you to be very skilled with your tweezers, as well as having an excellent understanding of the lash industry and techniques. The Russian Volume technique is an ‘add-on’ advanced and intricate lash treatment, and will not turn you into an amazing tech alone.

Frankie cannot teach novice lash technicians, or those that lack the Classic skills required to move onto the advanced and difficult technique.

Models are not required for the day

Frankie does not use models on one-day volume courses. The technique of Russian volume requires the precise creation of consistently perfect fans and this takes many hours of practice. Frankie teaches a variety of techniques, so that each student can find a technique that best suits them. Frankie spends a lot of time with her students perfecting the chosen pick up technique, including the correct glue dipping, placement and wrap of the fan onto the natural lash.

The above techniques all take time and can be practiced and perfected away from a real model, and applied correctly to a mannequin head.

The use of models on one-day courses, limits the time students have to practice and perfect their pickup techniques. This can mean that students lack the necessary practice time and confidence in the techniques taught and are asked to work on real models without having mastered the pickup correctly.
As a result, students either rush their volume work in attempt to create a full set, or the model leaves unhappy with a half-finished set of Russian volume extensions due to the limited lashing time available on a one-day course.

Every student that attends, is expected to be an experienced therapist who is confident and competent working on real models. As such, the techniques taught during the day can then be applied to their clients in their own time.

Frankie Widdows - Russian Volume Lash Course Instructor

Far too often I see students that were attracted by cheap beginners courses, or suddenly found there were additional hidden costs that were not stated at the time. Please research your course and your trainer. Ensure that training is either one-to-one, or that class sizes are kept small.

Cheap courses are usually cheap for a reason – if you wish to excel in this industry then you must invest into good training. The UK has some amazing Lash Trainers, however for every good trainer, there are 10 bad ones.

Train poor, train twice – so be prepared to invest into your future!
