Russian Volume Lashes
Russian volume lashes are the latest trend to take the beauty industry by storm.
Russian lashes have more volume while still remaining natural and subtle. This look is achieved very similarly to individual lashes in the sense that the natural lash is first isolated, then where previously Technicians would apply one lash, now they apply a small fan of anything between 2 to 7 lashes. There is no damage to the lash and in our experience, clients do not feel the Russian Volume lashes when applied. It’s just like having your own lashes but lots more of them! It also means that these lashes can be infilled as they fall out.
An experienced Technician will know how strong your natural lashes are and therefore adjust the amount of false lashes in their fans accordingly. These fans are nothing like the pre-made cluster lashes as they are handmade by the technician.
A set of Russian Volume lashes can take anywhere between 1½ – 2 hours to apply.
Hollywood lashes are a more natural look lash extension.
One lash is applied to each one of your own lashes, by isolating the lash and applying the false lash on top. This means that as your natural lash grows out the false lash will grow with it and therefore not get tangled or damage your natural lashes. This also means that they can be infilled after the false lash falls off without building lashes up on top of each other.
Individual lashes take approx. 60 – 75 minutes, lashes last anything between 2 – 4 weeks depending how quick your lashes grow and how well you look after them. We recommend an infill between 2 – 3 weeks.
These are the quickest way to have semi-permanent lashes applied in a salon. For this treatment, individual lashes are applied on top of your natural lashes without isolating your own lashes first. This treatment only takes around 30 minutes for a set and should last up to 2-3 weeks however it is difficult to get a fuller look as with other types of semi-permanent lashes.
Express lashes should not be infilled and instead should be removed then reapplied if you want to keep them on.
For that glamorous touch that will emphasise your eyes. Cluster lashes will create and emphasise the natural length and thickness of your own lashes. Great for special occasions.
EVL Lashes (Extend, Volumise & Lift) is the latest in eyelash perm treatments – an absolutely ground-breaking eyelash lifting treatment!
An EVL lash treatment takes 60 minutes and lasts up to six weeks depending on each individuals’ lash cycle.
This treatment is carried out on the natural lashes, (no false lashes or extensions). It is designed to give one’s own natural lashes a lift by straightening and lifting simultaneously and, with the added colour boost (tint), you will achieve a stunning ‘open eye’ effect.
Unlike the old way of perming the lashes where fiddly rods were used, if you had reasonable length lashes. EVL stylishly lifts the lashes from the root base giving a more wide-eyed open look. Even the Shortest of lashes benefit from EVL Lash Lifting Treatment.
With the EVL lash treatment, silicon pads are used and the lashes are adhered onto the pads making sure the lashes are stuck on straight.
The silicon shields/pads come in different sizes to be able to accommodate different natural lash lengths helping the lashes to curl out slightly from the base of the eyelid. The gel formula is then applied to the base of the lashes where they are lifted up with no frizzing on the ends.
After the volumising fixing agent has been applied, the lashes can then be given a colour boost. Even darker lashes can benefit from the colour boost as they tend to have lighter tips, helping with the appearance of elongated lashes. To finish off the treatment, the lashes will be given an EVL lash revitaliser for nourishment, conditioning and growth.
