The technique is suitable for weak eyelashes, allows you to visually correct the shape of the eyes, location imperfections.
- double volume – This is the fixation of two synthetic eyelashes on each natural one. Accordingly, the volume granted by nature doubles immediately and for a long time. The appearance of such eyelashes is still natural, artificiality is not striking.
Products with a thickness of 0.10 and 0.07 are used.
- To create a 3D effect lash makers stick three eyelashes 0.07 mm thick on each of their own. Such a volume looks less natural, one feels the hand of an experienced master who created a masterpiece.

- When creating a 4D volume the lash maker fixes four eyelashes, collecting them in bunches. To do this, take the thinnest material, not exceeding 0.07 mm in volume. Thanks to the increased splendor, the eyelash extensions look perfect even after 3-5 weeks.
The loss of a few hairs or cilia has little to no effect on the overall appearance.
- Five times the volume – these are five synthetic hairs on one natural. The ultra-thin material, which is less than 0.05 mm in diameter, creates a lush, thick “fan” without gaps. The smooth, gracefully curved shape makes the eyes more open, and the delightful volume will not leave anyone indifferent.
Volumes of 5D and more are most often made for certain events, as they are too theatrical in everyday wear.
