Although people with fine and short lashes benefit the most, those with longer and thicker natural lashes are still going to be benefit from this fantastic technique. Here’s everything you need to know:

What are Russian lashes?

Russian Volume Extensions Lashes are the latest multi-lash layering technique to take the health and beauty industry by storm. Capable of hosting whole ‘bouquets’ of eyelash extensions for every single natural lash, they create an incredible, glamorous look which is high in volume as well as being highly flexible.

Are Russian lashes mink? What are they made of?

For some reason, many people seem to think that Russian lashes are made of mink. In reality, Russian Volume Lashes are actually usually made from synthetic Mink. (Though there is a wide variety of ultra-fine synthetic fibres which are suitable for making them.)

Synthetic Mink tends to be the preference because they appear thicker and have greater body.

What’s the difference between Classic, 3D lashes and Russian lashes?

Classic lashes involve a single lash extension being applied to single natural lash on a 1:1 basis. Lashes which are described as 2D, 3D and so on up this ratio. So, with a 3D eyelash extension, you have three lash extensions being applied to a single natural lash.

Russian Volume Lashes take this to the ultimate level. With Russian Volume Lashes, you can have anywhere from 2 to 10 lash extensions for every natural lash. These can be varied not only by number but by the thickness of the extensions, allowing more or fewer extensions to be used as desired.

How long does it take to apply Russian Volume Eyelash Extensions?
Applying Russian Volume Extension Lashes requires a highly skilled and experienced professional. They usually take anywhere from between 1.5 to 4 hours to apply, depending on how much volume you want to add to your lashes. This is a process you don’t want to be rushed. Because of how intricate the whole process is, it’s also something that’s not to be tried DIY fashion.

How long do Russian volume lashes last? How to properly look after your Russian lash extensions?
If looked after properly, Russian Volume Lashes should last a little longer than your Classic lash extensions. Somewhere in the region of 4-6 weeks is common, though getting infills during that time is sensible if you want to ensure you keep your look strong.

Caring for your new lashes is fairly simple. All you need to do is:
• Avoid contact with water for the first 48 hours (no washing your face with hot water, swimming, steam rooms or saunas)
• Don’t wear mascara
• Use an oil-free make-up remover• Pat your lashes dry after washing your face rather than rubbing

How often do Russian lashes need infills?
To keep your Russian Volume Lashes looking their best, infills are usually a good idea every 2-3 weeks, though they can often last up to four weeks. This will depend, of course, on how rapidly your natural lashes fall out and are replaced. Regular infills also allow your beautician to check that your natural lashes are still healthy and happy underneath.
