Russian Lashes also known as Volume 3D, 4D, 5D, right up to 20D Lashes originated in Russia.
The technique of Russian Lashes can be defined as the application of a custom made fan which consists of very thin single eyelash extensions which are then applied to a single mid growth lash of your own.
The fan is normally made up of very fine single grade lashes with a thickness of 0.05mm, 0.06mm, 0.07mm or 0.10mm. The combined weight of the fan is normally around the weight of a single standard eyelash extension when used for Semi Permanent Eyelashes which is usually about 0.25.
Russian Lashes are a Semi Permanent method. They last as long as the hair growth cycle which is between 6 to 8 weeks with regular infill’s every 2/4 weeks.
Each fan is applied to one single mid growth lash of your own using a strong bonding adhesive.
I mainly use C Curl for the Russian Lash treatment as I find they give far superior results. I use 9mm, 10mm, 11mm, 12mm, 13mm and 14mm length lashes.
Benefits of Russian Lashes include:
