Are You Ready For The Volume? The Perfect Time To Learn Russian Volume After Classic Lashes
Let's dive into a question that's been on the minds of many budding lash artists: when is the right time to start learning Russian Volume after getting comfortable with classic lashes? Well, buckle up, because we're about to give you the low down on making that exciting leap!
Starting Off With Classics
Everyone has to start somewhere, and for most lash artists, that 'somewhere' is classic lash extensions. Classic lashes involve applying a single extension to a single natural lash. It's a fabulous technique to learn the ropes - isolation, application, adhesive control, and styling. Plus, it's a timeless look that's always in demand.
Leveling Up With Russian Volume
Now, here's where things get even more exciting. Russian Volume is like the older, more sophisticated sister of classic lashes. Instead of one extension per natural lash, you're creating and applying handmade fans of 2 to 6 (sometimes more!) ultra-fine extensions. This results in that fluffy, voluminous look that's got everyone swooning.
But as you can guess, more lashes mean more skill required, which leads us to the million-dollar question...
When To Make The Move?
While there's no one-size-fits-all answer, the consensus is you should have at least 3-6 months of experience with classic lashes before you take on Russian Volume. This gives you ample time to polish your isolation skills, increase your speed, and build your confidence. After all, Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither is a lash empire!
The complexity and precision required for Russian Volume are a step up from classic lashing. The idea is, you should feel totally at ease with classic lashes, almost like it's second nature, before jumping into the deep end of volume lashing.
But let's not forget, everyone's learning journey is unique. Some might be ready to take the plunge in 3 months, while others might need a bit more time. It all depends on how often you're practicing and the number of clients you're dealing with. Ultimately, it's all about how ready and comfortable you feel in your skills.
