Volume lash extensions
What are eyelash extensions to our clientele
Eyelash extensions are mostly known to make the lash lover feel as if sparkles have been added to their daily lifestyle. A boost of confidence particularly in their inner self-image. You may tell me that this statement seems wrong, but if you take a glimpse at what we have to do every day to feel polished it is best fitting. The feeling that you won’t have to wear much eye makeup and only focus on your skin tone as well as lips is a delightful thought. Not having to mess with mascara and eyeliner most of the time, saves you on applying as well as removing. NO more raccoon eyes! It is the look of high maintenance but truly low maintenance. Your favorite lash stylist does the work, you model the art.
About Volume lashes
Volume lashes are a new, hot and cutting edge professional one and one service available worldwide. Semi-permanent eyelash extensions give you longer, thicker and very natural looking eyelashes. They look so natural no one will know they are not yours! Eyelash extensions are worn by famous celebrities like Nicole Kidman, Star Jones, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Gwen Stefani, Lucy Liu, Naomi Campbell and Liz Hurley to name a few. But you don’t have to be a celebrity to wear them. Donna Beauty is offering you the opportunity to experience those gorgeous Volume lash extensions!
Volume lash extensions at Donna Beauty are faux lashes that are applied to one-single-natural-eyelash at a time.Your natural eyelashes are able to move, grow, and shed as if you have nothing on them. Volume lashes are extremely lightweight, allowing the stylist to apply from 2 to 6 extensions per natural lash, or 200-750 extensions per eye! This cannot be done with classic lashes, as they are too heavy to apply more than one extension per lash. They come in several different lengths and curls; these can create a beautiful full yet natural look, up to the most glamorous look you can imagine.
Volume lashes are prefect for clients who don’t have a lot of lashes, have sparse lashes, bald spots or just want a more dramatic look without having to use a thicker lash.
Volume lashes give you eyelashes that no amount of curling, mascara, or strip lashes could ever achieve, yet they are undetectable and feel weightless.

Each natural eyelash gets between 2-6 extensions
It is a revolutionary advanced technique that uses even lighter and thinner lashes to add multi-dimensional volume. This procedure is done by placing multiple lashes on each single natural eyelash in a fanned shape to create depth, volume, and texture. This number goes up according to how much volume you’d like and what strength your natural lashes are. The more dramatic look desired, the more volume you should request. Despite the large amount of Volume Eyelashes applied, you will still walk away having a natural, flawless lash appearance.
The extensions used are even lighter, and finer than classic extensions, which mean multiple lashes can be applied without damaging the lash, looking “clumpy”, or feeling too heavy and unnatural. 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.
When multiple volume lashes are applied, they create a full and natural feather-effect look. 2D = approximately 200 lashes per eye, 3D = approximately 300 lashes per eye this can continue up to 5D. This technique can be done up to 6D, but anything over 5 D can be quite over dramatic.
One of the best things about volume eyelashes is that the client has the option to choose how much or how little volume he/she would like to add to their natural lashes. There are 6 different kinds of volume lash extensions, varying from 2D lashes (2 lashes per one natural eyelash) to 3D lashes, all the way up to 6D lashes (6 lashes per one natural eyelash). The options a client chooses can vary depending on the level of necessity and intensity desired.
A Volume Extension procedure may take anywhere from 2-4 hours
The reason for this procedure taking a few hours (depending on the volume requested) is due to the care and attention given by the eyelash technician. This technique contains a lot of patience and requires a significant amount of skill compared to classic eyelash extensions. It takes an extremely thorough and dedicated training process in order for one to be certified to perform a Volume Eyelash Extension procedure. This is to ensure each client can book an appointment knowing that they are guaranteed to walk away even more beautiful than they already were! The technicians also make sure to explain after-care instructions as well as any follow up information.
Volume lashes can last from 4 to 5 weeks
As there are significantly more lashes per natural lash (between two and five, depending on the service), Volume Lashes will last much longer before you will notice that you require a refill. Volume Lashes are known to last 4 to 5 weeks if maintained with refills. To maintain the full look of your initial application, we recommend a refill appointment every 2-3 weeks to replace the lashes that have shed or outgrown naturally.
What makes Volume Lashes different from Classic Lashes
There are two different characteristics clients desire in their eyelashes: length and fullness.
Classic eyelash extensions are applied one by one to the natural lashes, and for clients who have naturally sparse or fine lashes it’s not always possible to get that extreme volume.
While classic eyelash extensions add moderate to extreme length to your natural lashes, volume lashes are used to improve their texture, depth, and ampleness. Many clients are happy with the natural length of their eyelashes but desire a fuller look, as their lashes are fine or scarce. Prior to the introduction of volume eyelashes, eyelash extension artists could only attempt to create the desired look with thick and heavy single lashes, which most natural lashes cannot safely support.
Volume Lashes allow a client who has sparse lashes, or those with regular lashes to have more lashes applied than would normally be allowed, due to the number of natural lashes to work with, giving a naturally soft and thick, voluminous appearance. Due to their lightweight nature, volume lashes allow for more customization than classic eyelash extensions. They are also darker than the eyelashes in classic sets, adding a striking richness to your overall look.
Volume lash extensions were designed to fill in the gaps where classic eyelash extensions could not. This technique allows artists to apply multiple extensions to one individual eyelash. Each extension is extremely light and thin compared to the previous thicker options, creating a fluffy and soft appearance that is not heavy or damaging to the natural eyelash. In addition, despite the common misconception that more volume = more adhesive, these lashes require only a fraction of the glue used with older extension techniques.
Preparing for your Lash Appointment:
- To maximize your time with your lash stylist, please remove all makeup in your eye area, including foundation, eyeliner, eye shadow, mascara, eye creams, and eye serums with mild, oil free cleanser. We want to spend time working on perfecting your lashes rather than removing your mascara.
- Clean your lashes gently but thoroughly to remove any residual oils or mascara.
- Do not use oil based makeup removers to clean your lashes prior to the application.
- Shower and wash your hair as you will not be able to stay under steam or water for 24-48 hours.
- If you wear contact lenses, wear glasses instead to your appointment or bring a lens case and remove them when you arrive to your appointment.
- Do not curl your lashes the day of your appointment; straight lashes work better
- Do not apply heavy creams, lotions, or oils to your face in the 48 hours before your appointment.
- Do not tint or perm your lashes in the 48 hours before your appointment.
- Do not drink too much water before. While the procedure is being done your eyes need to be closed. Bathroom time before is recommended.
- Let us know if you have recently received any irritating cosmetic treatments (such as skin resurfacing procedures, chemical peels, eyebrow waxing, laser treatments, permanent makeup application, etc.) in your eye area.
- Consult your doctor before your appointment if you are pregnant, are taking medication, suffer from any medical conditions or allergies, or are recovering from any medical procedure.
A patch test and 10 minute consultation MUST be taken 24 hours before eyelash extensions are applied. The patch test is designed to ensure that you are not allergic to eyelash extension adhesive vapours / fumes.
The Adhesive used for eyelash extensions is a medical grade and is only to be applied to client`s natural lashes, not the skin. It is very unlikely that clients will experience an allergic reaction.
IF YOU’VE NEVER HAD LASH EXTENSIONS, PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
We DO NOT recommend Eyelash Extensions if you are pregnant.
For travel, and important events, please book at least four days prior to rule out any chances of irritation or allergic reaction.
For brides generally we recommend having a FULL SET applied 2-3 weeks before your wedding so you can get used to the lashes. Then we suggest having an INFILL at the beginning of the week of the wedding so you can perfect the lashes for the wedding day and make any changes to the length or volume that you require.
Please advise us if you have sensitivities and/or allergies when making your first appointment to avoid disappointment should you not be a suitable candidate for this service.
Please call us if you have any questions prior to making an appointment.
It is important for eyelash consumers to seek certified professionals from any of eyelash extensions manufacture. Why you may ask? Because there are many unskilled eyelash technicians that lack the correct techniques and/or use inferior grade product. Since eyelash extensions involves working with semi-permanent glue next to your eyes, it is absolutely vital for the lash technician to be well trained in safety and technique.
