Russian Volume Lashes

Russian Volume Lashes are ultra fine synthetic lashes that are made from the same fibres as classic lashes. However, as they are much thinner so your lash technician is able to apply more than one to each natural lash. Russian Lashes are typically applied in a fan-like shape, which adds to the ‘volume’ look. Due to their lightweight nature, Russian Volume Lashes can last up to twice as long as Classic Lash Extensions.
