How many fans do you need for volume lashes?

Volume lashes, on the other hand, are thinner eyelash extensions made in the shape of a fan that consist of 2 to 10 lashes per fan. Each fan is applied to an individual natural eyelash. The mega-volume sets combine 50 and 30 eyelash extensions to form a range of 16 lashes. You can use up to 16 extensions on a natural eyelash when using an enormous volume.

That is, without a doubt, MEGA. A prefabricated volume fan consists of between 2 and 8 tabs glued together at the base. Instead of carefully creating fans yourself, you'll simply select the range you want to apply and attach it to your client's natural eyelashes in the same way you would with a single eyelash extension. Not being as dense as other types of volume fans, the lashes will appear shorter and less impactful.

When using a high-volume fan, make sure that you only apply it to one natural eyelash at a time and that it's not sticky (this is true for any application). You can successfully use prefabricated volume fans to save time and develop your technique as a volume laser. If you're still not comfortable enough to try to tie the volume fan to a loved customer, try different fan sizes and fan-cooling techniques at home first. This is most of what I do, but from time to time I'll have a client who simply wants the thickest eyelashes possible, so Russian Volume is the technique used.

Because the fans are held together by adhesive, they weigh more than thermally bonded pre-ventilated volumetric flanges. The eyelash fan with the perfect volume must have the same space between the individual eyelashes, a ratio of 1/3 in size between the body and the base of the fan and an area of 2 to 3 mm for applying the glue, and must also be symmetrical. Basically, what you do there is take a voluminous eyelash, separate it from the rest that is on the tape and then extend the eyelashes in a fan. Ideal for beginners, this technique allows you to move eyelashes with individual volume on the same belt or on a different belt.

It's very harmful to natural eyelashes because of how heavy they are (they take too many at a time and aren't strategically manufactured for the person you're working on) and you don't have to pay volume prices for it. Standard eyelash sets are an excellent technique for adding length and adjusting the natural curve of lashes, but those that lack volume or want an extra boost won't get much out of them. Because these fans are heat sealed, they are lighter and easier to maneuver than pre-styled volumetric tabs attached with glue. The image below shows more fans of volume than the classic one, which extends 2 to 3 mm beyond their natural eyelashes.
