American volume vs. Russian volume vs. Mega volume
Russian volume refers to the original volume technique introduced by Olga Dobronravova and Irina Levchuck in 2013. In this method, three or more eyelash extensions spanning a maximum cumulative length of 1-2mm was applied on the natural lashes. It was all about a thick lash line with a straight line shape. No fills and touchups were possible here and one had to remove all previous eyelash extensions and apply a fresh set each time. The American volume was introduced as an alternative to this traditional volume and showcased a more textured or staggered wispy line. Fill-ups and touch-ups became possible here. Mega volume is the latest trend where volume fans are created with six or more .03-.06 thickness of eyelash extensions. They look like a longer version of the traditional Russian volume.
Also known as split tip lash extensions; these have a dual tip at their ends which add plenty of texture and fluffiness to the classic set. It is often used by lash artists who are not an expert in volume to lend a soft and natural look to any eyes.
Silk eyelash extensions
Crafted from the durable PBT material; these lashes typically taper towards the end to ooze a thicker appearance with a deeper hue. They generally have a glossy finish though special matt finish is also available for those wanting it.
