What lashes to use for volume?

Voluminous lashes are lighter, fluffier and give the customer a fuller look.

Volume lashes

are perfect for people who don't have a lot of eyelashes, have sparse eyelashes, bald spots, or simply want a more dramatic look without having to use thicker lashes. When looking for a set of thick and fabulous eyelashes, choose eyelash extensions with a thickness of 0.03 mm to 0.05 mm. Larger eyelashes give the eyes a denser, darker look that causes the eyes to focus on them.

As expert eyelash artists know, every client will have different eyelash extension needs due to their own unique natural lashes. So while many LivBay Lash artists love using the J-curve for voluminous eyelashes, that doesn't automatically mean that you do too. The difference in the thickness of the eyelashes gives space for various volumes and finishes, which optimizes their market offer. However, eyelash extensions with a thickness of 0.15 mm stand out as the most popular option, as they leave a naturally thick look that complements the classic eyelash set.

The diameter you use and the number of eyelashes you have in each range you use will depend on your client's natural eyelashes and the desired look. In the photo below, you can see that the stylist had completely filled ALL of the natural lashes, including the baby's lashes. This is a great way to add length and modify the natural shape of eyelashes, however, people who lack volume or want an extra boost, can't get much out of classic eyelash sets. The mega-volume makes insulation difficult because the base of the lash line becomes too thick with all the fans.

Then, fill in teenagers' eyelashes with a shorter length and a smaller weight, complementing the natural lashes. After talking to the previous customer, I gave her a daily volume set that wouldn't damage her eyelashes and would maintain her design after 3 weeks. For customers who are new to the beauty of eyelash extensions, it's helpful to have a series of questions to ask to determine what type of eyelashes your client will love. In the image below, you can compare a client of mine without eyelash extensions, with a set of natural volumes and with a set of divine volumes.

However, customers should ensure that their eyelash stylist has the necessary experience and practice before proceeding with a mega-volume set. Russian volume eyelash extensions focus on filling in the gaps left by natural eyelashes with layers of lightweight extensions.
