The volume eyelash technique developed in Russia has spread and become very popular in the UK. Several ultra-lightweight lashes are applied to each individual lash in a way that does not excessively strain the natural eyelash. Using fine extensions, different techniques are used to fan the extensions, it is then placed in a way that wraps around the isolated natural lash, which aids good retention with no damage! Our Volume fans are created by had at the time of application.
Volume lash extensions create a lightweight, darker and more fluffy look. These extensions are so lightweight that they can be safely applied to create extra volume but still remain very light so they do not weigh down the natural lashes.
Great for clients with sparse natural lashes.
Full set 2-3D (2 hours) | £80 Infill (1 hour 15mins) | £40 2-3 extensions will be applied to each natural lash, this treatment is perfect for a subtle and natural look.
Patch testing Cyanoacrylate contained in lash adhesives is the most common reason for reaction to lash extensions. It is an irritant for your skin, eyes and respiratory functions. For this reason lash adhesive should not touch the skin. For many years we have followed the old-school method of patch testing. However this is not a clear indication if a reaction will occur as during the treatment adhesive will never touch your skin.
If someone is allergic to Cyanoacrylate unfortunately you will not be able to have lash extensions applied.
A patch test does not give you full exposure in the same way a full set would. Lash adhesive allergies are cumulative (meaning they build up over time). It is unlikely that a client will already have an allergy to cyanoacrylate if they have not previously been exposed to this.
What about our insurance policy? Well in short they advise we follow our manufactures or suppliers guidelines. LashBase patch testing guidelines are as follows:
we are not required to patch test lash extension clients
we must fully inform each client of the potential risks involved with lash adhesive reactions. This must be documented and signed by the client and lash artist to confirm they understand and are happy to go ahead. The client should be offered the option for a patch test if they have any concerns.
we must follow our insurers guidelines.
