  • What are Hybrid Lashes? 

Hybrid lashes are suitable for people who feel individual lashes aren’t enough but maybe Russian lashes are too much.

They can also be a great way to achieve that suggested look made popular by Kim Kardashian by using longer classic extensions interspersed with shorter volume lashes

  • What are Russian volume lashes? 

This method of lashes is perfect for people who want a more Glam look. Russian lashes are fine synthetic Lashes that are made from the same fibre as classic lashes, however because they are much thinner we are able to apply more lashes to each natural lash. Anything between 2 to 8 Lashes can be applied without them damaging your natural lashes or weighing them down.
Russian lashes are applied in a fan like shape which we make as we are with our clients. This technique gives you the most volume and because the lashes are so light weight they last up to 50% longer than individual lashes. 

  • What are Mega Volume Russian Lashes? 

This method of lashes is perfect for people who want a dramatic look. These lashes are Russian volume lashes and are applied the same way but the technician will make larger fans and apply them to each individual natural lash. Anything between 6-12 lashes per natural lash can be applied. Larger fans gives you the greatest volume and are the most glamorous lashes we offer.
