What is the difference between classic Mink and Volume (Russian Volume ) lash extensions?
3D or volume, is a specialised technique and style of eyelash extensions. They are light natural semi permanent eyelash extensions, but instead of 1 individual lash attached to the clients lashes, we can attach 3 or more on each lash.
volume lashes are the latest trend to take the eyelash extension industry by storm. As the name suggests the technique originates from Russia, where lash pioneers created a bouquet of lashes, fanning out two or more lashes and placing them on to a single natural lash to create the fullest sets that were unprecedented with classic style extensions.
Prior to this, it was frowned upon to attach more than one extension onto one natural lash, as it would weigh down the lash and compromise the health of lashes over time. The Russian technique uses specialised eyelash extensions that are of a mere 0.07mm diameter (sometimes even 0.05mm) to make this possible without damaging the natural lashes. Before these lashes were introduced, most technicians were typically using extensions of 0.15mm or 0.20mm width for the 1 on 1 classic style.
The term 2D, 3D, etc. in the volume technique is used to describe how many lashes are in the fan or bouquet of lashes. 3D means 3 lashes are placed onto one natural lash.
Volume extensions are all hand made on the spot – your technician makes each bouquet, carefully fanning out multiple lashes using their tweezers right before attaching them to your lashes. The procedure is very delicate and much more intricate than classic extensions; absolute precision is a necessity.
