Mega Volume lash extensions are a type of eyelash extension that gives an incredibly full, dense, and dramatic look. This style involves applying fans of super-fine eyelash extensions to each natural lash, creating a fan-like effect.
What is Mega Volume Lash Style?
Mega volume and traditional volume lash techniques differ in the number and diameter of false lashes used to create a fan. Mega volume fans typically consist of 8 to 20 false lashes with diameters between 0.03 to 0.05 mm, while a volume fan typically has 2 to 5 false lashes with diameters between 0.05 to 0.07 mm. Although there is no exact number to distinguish between the two, this difference in lash count and diameter creates a much denser and darker look with mega volume lash sets.
Mega Volume Lash Style creates a dramatic and full look, suitable for clients who want dense and fluffy lashes, perfect for special occasions. It's important to note that it's not suitable for everyone, as the weight of the extensions can cause damage to natural lashes if not applied correctly or if the natural lashes are not strong enough to support the weight.
Clients who have sparse natural lashes or who want a more natural look may not be good candidates for the Mega Volume lash style. In these cases, a more subtle style such as Classic or Volume lashes may be a better option.
Most Efficient way to create a Mega Volume Lash Set?1. Manual
Mega Volume lash extensions are an advanced technique that requires a skilled and experienced lash artist. In this style, ultra-fine lashes are used to create fans of anywhere from 8 to 20 (or more) extensions per natural lash. The extensions are so fluffy and thin that they can create a feathery, fluttery effect that is not achievable with other types of lash extensions.
One of the more difficult and time consuming parts of creating such a set is creating very large volume fans with a lot of lashes. This process increases your lashing time significantly. A mega volume set usually requires twice the amount of time needed for other types of set - up to 3 to 4 hours.
Creating large fans can be daunting, especially when you need hundreds of them per set.
2. Pre-made fans
The most efficient way is typically to use premade fans, which are clusters of ultra-fine lashes that have been pre-arranged into a fan shape. This can save time compared to hand-making each fan individually, which can be a time-consuming process. Using premade fans also helps ensure that the fans are uniform and consistent in size and shape, resulting in a more symmetrical and full lash set. Additionally, using the correct adhesive and placing the fans correctly with proper spacing can help ensure the lashes are secure and long-lasting.
