What are Volume Lashes?

Volume eyelash extensions came to America in 2013 and took the eyelash industry by storm! People were shocked, amazed, jaw dropped by what volume lashes could do for us! Volume has made it so sparse lashes lines can have lash extensions and full lashes can we made fuller! The options for lash extensions are now endless with volume lashes! 

Volume lashes are the art of fanning and picking up multiple lightweight extensions at a time! Yes you heard that right. When you pick up multiple lashes you create a fan. You can then place that fan with MULITPLE extensions onto one natural lash. For classic lashes we were only able to add one lash extension to one natural lash. Volume lashes it possible to add over 200 lash extensions per eye!

For volume lashes you will not use the same lashes or tweezers as you would for Classic! The weight of the eyelash extension needs to be a lot less, that is why you are able to add more than one lash extension to a natural lash. Whatever you do do not use your classic lashes for volume lash application. Using multiple Classic lashes can cause damage to the natural lash by putting something on that is too heavy for the natural lash. A popular diameter to start with for volume is ".07". We also recommend using a boot style tweezer. Our 207 and 208 tweezers are most popular for volume. Volume fans can be made with the following diameters .07, .06, .05, and .03.

Clients have fallen in love with the look and feel of volume. It can be a natural or dramatic look depending on how big you make that fan. Volume is known to be soft and weightless! 

You can see Volume Lashes described as a "D" here is what that means!

2D = 2 extensions per natural lash 
3D = 3 extensions per natural lash
4D = 4 extensions per natural lash 
5D = 5 extensions per natural lash 
and so on. 
The most commonly made fan for volume is 3-6 lash extensions. Remember to keep in mind the health of the client's natural lashes. To find out more and how to do volume lashes join us in a course! We offer courses on Volume Lashes both in-person and online.
