There are so many questions around mega volume that haven’t been answered, but rest assured, I’m here to break them down for you.
We know how important it is to know everything you can about what’s going on in your industry!
So here it is, lash artist: Mega volume lashes.
Knowing The Difference
Mega volume lashes are very similar to the traditional volume lashes we know.
The difference between mega volume and traditional volume is how many lash extensions are being used to create the fan and the diameter of the extensions in the fan.
A set of traditional volume lashes uses .07 extensions to create a fan with up to 5 lash
Mega volume sets use .05 and .03 lash extensions to create a fan with up to 16 lash extensions.
With mega volume, you can apply up to 16 extensions on one natural lash.
That is MEGA for sure.
Being Mega Safe
Just like classic and traditional volume lashes, mega volume lashes are safe for natural lashes if the extensions are applied correctly.
Symmetry and Balance
Was learning the volume lash technique challenging for you?
I remember learning volume and how frustrating it was.
Your hands are used to doing it one way, and now you have to adjust.
A majority of volume lash artist’s use .07 lash extensions and that diameter is awesome.
It gives you that dark lash line with fluff.
When doing Mega volume lashes, you have to use even thinner lash extensions: .05 and .03.
There are some adjustments you’ll have to make to be able to pick up these ultra-thin lashes and create a perfectly symmetrical fan, but you’ll get it!
Symmetrical fans are important in traditional volume lashing, as you know, and even MORE important in mega volume.
Creating a fan where the extensions are equally spaced will not only give you a beautiful look, but it will also create a weight balance.
A weight balance will give your clients great retention and keep their natural lashes healthy and strong.
Weight balance will also give them a beautiful set of lash extensions.
Who doesn’t want that?
