Why choose Volume Lashes?
Unlike Classic Lashes, Volume Lashes are supported by other lashes and not just your natural lashes and one single extension. With just one lash extension and your natural lashes support, after a few days the lashes begin to turn, twist and large lash gaps become noticeable. That can cause irritation and thin and spidery looking lashes. Volume Lashes are the complete opposite they last longer and are supported with a fanning technique. This fan technique creates a stronger bond to the natural lashes and supports the lashes. During your lash shedding, your lash will still look full and natural. Unlike Classic Lashes, volume lash shedding doesn’t create gaps and thin spidery lashes because of the fanning technique. Volume lashes are softer and more versatile. Volume Lashes are great for clients with thin lashes or full lashes, because volume is applied using a thin mink and silk blended extension. This allows the lash artist to create any look, length and lash thickness. Volume Lashes are not thick and unnatural looking, their soft and can be customized to look like mascara or super- glamorous.
