No, this does not mean a Russian must apply the lashes.
Unless she is trained in the technique, of course.
This style originated in Russia and Ukraine, hence the name.
Volume lashing is the technique in which anywhere from 2-12 synthetic extensions are applied to each individual lash.
This is up to a 12:1 ratio. Quite a difference!
A lash stylist will create a fan, customized to you, in a variety of ways.
