What are Volume/3D Eyelash Extensions?
When multiple lashes are applied to one single natural eyelash individually isolating one natural eyelash at a time. Using very thin lashes. If two eyelash extensions are applied to one natural lash it’s described as 2D, if three eyelash extensions are applied to one natural eyelash then it’s described as 3D etc. This method is also known as Russian volume. The lash extensions used in this method are significantly thinner (Usually a 0.05 - 0.10 diameter lash extension is used) than the lash extensions used for the classic lash method.
