Want to learn Russian Volume + Kim’s Effect? Now is your chance!

Eyelash extensions are currently one of the most exciting beauty treatments on the market! Cash-in on the industry when you learn Nadia Afanaseva’s one-of-a-kind techniques for Russian Volume and Kim’s Effect lash styles.

Become an expert in Nadia Afanaseva’s exclusive Russian Volume and Kim’s Effect techniques for eyelash extensions at her all-new Masterclass!

Eye Design University’s Advanced Volume Lash Class was developed for experienced lash artists, as well as beginners who have already completed our Basic Lash Class. Cater to more clients and increase your income with our studio’s signature Russian Volume techniques, developed by Nadia herself.

The benefits of participating in an Eye Design University course are endless, but perks specific to our Russian Volume and Kim’s Effect Masterclass include:

  • 5 methods for applying Kim’s Effect lash extensions
  • Kim’s Effect for Asian eyes
  • Mixing black and brown lashes for Kim’s Effect (ideal for clients with blonde hair or fair skin–especially those with freckles!)
  • More than 20 ways to style Kim’s Effect and other Volume lashes
  • Cat, Doll and more!
  • Russian Volume: 2D to 8D training!
  • Layering techniques
  • Proper application for thin and sparse lashes
  • Lower lash application
  • Removal techniques
  • Essential aftercare information
  • More!

Nearly all Eye Design University courses are written and led by our founder and Master Technician Nadia. She is credited with bringing Russian Volume techniques for eyelash extensions to the United States approximately five years ago.

Kim’s Effect is a combination of classic lash application and Russian Volume. It uses varied lengths throughout for intense volume near the lash line and a lighter, more fluttery look near the brow bone. Kim’s Effect, a modern approach to beauty, brings everyday wearability to red carpet glamour.

Our Masterclass is a two-day intensive training workshop that includes live-model practice! You will watch Nadia work on a model, then apply individual lash extensions to a model of your own. On Day 1, we will cover Russian Volume techniques and on Day 2, the class will focus on the different methods for applying Kim’s Effect. (Students can also opt to enroll in Day 1 or Day 2 only and take the remaining day at another time.)

Day 2 (Kim’s Effect) is full of essential information and practice lash artists need in order to be successful. It includes:

  • One full day of training
  • Live-model practice
  • A toolkit full of Eye Design’s premium supplies so you can start working right away (worth approximately $400)!
  • Online support with Eye Design’s expert team after the class
  • Graduation and certification

Clients cannot get enough of the beautiful Kim’s Effect technique and shortly after its debut, Kim’s Effect quickly became one of the most popular lash styles in the world! Kim’s Effect is the most in-demand lash service at Eye Design’s Fifth Avenue studio–and we have a feeling your own clients will be begging for it, too.

As you work with your live model, you will have plenty of opportunities to snap “before” and “after” photos. The Eye Design team encourages you to do so that you can show off your new skills on social media and grow your portfolio! This will help you attract new clients and keep previous clients coming back for more. In the age of technology, sharing snippets of your skills on social media can bring you tons of amazing opportunities.

An Eye Design University course is the ultimate way to gain new skills and refine old ones in whichever techniques you choose! You will work with one-on-one guidance from Nadia and gain the confidence you need to start working with REAL models and clients right away. With certification from Eye Design, clients will know you learned from the best!

Set in our beautifully renovated warehouse, Eye Design University is the only place in the world where you can learn the original Kim’s Effect technique for lash extensions. Our courses are packed with must-know details all beauty professionals should have. Of course, Nadia will share her exclusive tips, tricks and techniques with every single student.
