On average, classic eyelashes can last 4 to 5 weeks. Since the purpose of classic eyelashes is simple, these eyelashes will last longer than Russian eyelashes. Since Russian Lashes are divided into 3 or 4 separate lashes to give a voluminous appearance, they last less than classic lashes, 2 to 3 weeks. Voluminous lashes last longer than classic lashes and last 6 to 8 weeks with proper aftercare, depending on the natural eyelash growth cycle.
Both styles require fillers after 2 to 3 weeks. If you want your eyelash extensions to last longer and, at the same time, maintain that dazzling and renewed look, Russian Lashes is your choice. Usually, an eye has 90 to 150 natural eyelashes and this means that 80 to 100 eyelash extensions can be added. It depends on how lush or thick your natural eyelashes are, as well as how you want the extensions to be.
Nowadays there are several sizes of eyelash extensions that are used for the classic style, from the lowest with 0.10 mm to 0.12 mm, and 0.15 mm as the maximum size. While some eyelash artists use eyelash extensions up to 0.20 mm thick, we never exceed 0.15 mm at Divine Lashes. An eyelash technician uses 2 to 16 lashes per fan on individual lashes. The proportion is decided by the extent of the voluminous effect you want.
The total number of extensions per fan is called 2D, 3D, 5D, 7D, 10D, etc. For example, a 10D fan can use extensions of 0.03 mm each, a 4D fan of 0.05 mm each, and a 2D volume fan extension of 0.07 mm each. Your eyelash technician can use thicknesses of 0.07 mm, 0.10 mm or even 0.15 mm for the classic eyelashes that will be applied, or thicknesses of 0.03 mm and 0.05 mm for the eyelashes with volume to be applied. On the other hand, volume tabs can mean anything from 2D to 12D.
Another nuance of Russian eyelashes is that they are soft and thinner than standard volume eyelashes. In addition, those who don't want their extensions to be too noticeable or elegant can opt for the classic eyelash set. With the training modules to give volume to your eyelashes, you'll learn the right extension styles that best suit different eye and eyelash shapes. Many eyelash artists consider flat lashes to be better than classic lashes because they are lighter and therefore better for eyelash health.
An eyelash artist dips the end of an individual extension in an adhesive, then applies it above or below the natural eyelash and repeats it until each medium, mature eyelash is ready. The more tabs the technician has to apply, the longer it will take, since it is a labor-intensive task. When it comes to creating a bolder, thicker and fuller eyelash look, Volume Lash extensions, also known as Russian Volume Lashes, are the ideal beauty treatment. However, if you've fainted at the eyelashes of celebrities and are craving something fabulously dramatic, there's no reason not to take the plunge and treat yourself to voluminous lashes.
