How to apply Russian volume lashes on a client who is short on time

What’s the best way to apply Russian volume lashes on a client who is short on time?

Volume lashes are in demand for good reason. The technique can be tailored to the client’s wishes; whether it’s a boost of the natural lashes or a much fuller lash look.

Despite the many benefits of the Russian volume technique, the main issue facing lash technicians is the time needed to complete the treatment. For anyone who is worried about completing a high-quality volume treatment for clients who are short on time, there are a few things you can do.

Firstly, invest in a fast-setting adhesive and practise using it because eventually your time taken for application will improve dramatically, plus the repetition will help build your confidence with the adhesive.

Secondly, make sure you’re using the right tweezers to suit your style because once you do, it makes picking up multiple lashes so much easier. You can also reduce treatment time by narrowing your treatment area. For example, if you place all your essential tools in one easy-to-reach area, you reduce movement, allowing full focus on lash application.

At Nouveau Lashes we’ve created a treatment that delivers all the benefits of the Russian Volume treatment but in half the time. Our new SVS (Speed, Volume, Style) treatment achieves stunning lash looks in as little as 45 minutes.
