Volume Lashes : What you need to know ?

1. What Are Volume Eyelash Extensions?

Volume lashes is a technique in which multiplied lash extensions are fanned out and applied to one natural lash (one to many). Volume eyelash extensions allow for a great level of customization to achieve the client’s desired look. This technique will give you a fuller and fluffier lash line.


2. What’s the Difference Between Mega Volume Lashes and Volume Lashes?

The difference between mega volume and traditional volume is the number of false lashes used to create a fan and the diameter of these false lashes.

Each mega volume fan uses 6 to 16 false lashes with diameters between 0.03 to 0.05 mm while a volume fan will use 2 to 5 false lashes with diameters between 0.05 to 0.07 mm. Mega volume allows for a denser and darker look since it uses these lightweight fans with numerous extensions.


3. How To Calculate Volume Lashes Size & Weight

The appropriate weight of a volume fan is controlled by managing two crucial variables :

- How many extensions can be used to create a fan. This is also referred to as “D” for dimension

- The diameter of the extensions used to create a fan.

A healthy and thick natural lash will be able to bear a heavier volume fan than a thin natural lash. Maintaining healthy lashes should always be your #1 priority. Let’s dive into an example.

A client with healthy natural eyelashes should handle 0.15 mm diameter classic extensions (only one extension on the natural lash).

Using this as a baseline, the same client should also be able to handle the following volume fans:
- Up to 3D volume fans using 0.07 mm diameter extensions.
- Up to 7D volume fans using 0.05 mm diameter extensions.
- Up to 12D volume fans using 0.03 mm diameter extensions.


4. Are Mega Volume Lashes Safe?

Yes, mega volume lashes are safe just like traditional volume or classic are. However, they are definitely more complex.

They require a high level of expertise and experience to make sure that the weight of the extension is not too heavy for the natural lash. Also, not all clients can bear the weight of mega volume lashes. You need very strong natural lashes to support mega volume.

As you can see in the “volume fan weight calculation” section of the article, there is a delicate balance between dimension, diameter, and even length when creating the appropriate fan. Moreover, the application needs to be perfect for mega volume lashes to be safe.


5. How Can Mega Volume Lashes Damage Natural Lashes

The most common mistake is to completely fill all the natural lashes regardless of the growth stage they are in. Clients love the initial look but will hate it in 3 weeks. Applying fans on baby lashes will definitely cause damage to the natural lashes.

After a fresh set, they look uniform and beautiful but when they grow out they look like the above. The mature lashes fall out naturally whereas the baby lashes are still growing. In 3 weeks, these baby eyelashes will grow into teenage lashes which will mess up the design, and it could potentially cause damage (extensions that are sticking out are more likely to get caught or prematurely shed). That’s not to mention the weight that’s on the baby lashes, is the same as the mature lashes. If there is too much weight on a lash it could snap off or weaken.

The second common mistake is improper isolation. When applying a mega volume fan, you need to make sure that the fan is only applied on one single natural lash and that there is no sticky (this is true for any application). Mega volume makes isolation more difficult because the base of the lash line becomes very thick with all the fans. Practice makes perfect here.


6. How Long Do Volume Lashes Last?

Volume lashes will last from 3 to 5 weeks without any issue. Don’t believe that your lashes can still look fabulous during week three as they did on day 1?
