HYBRID LASHES | EXPLAINED

HYBRID LASHES

Recently, there has been a change in the world of eyelash extensions. Hybrid lashes have become immensely popular in the past few years. The reason is that they combine both classic extensions and volume extensions into one. The real question is, how are they different from classic and volume eyelash extensions? How are they the same? And more importantly, which style is best for you?

WHAT ARE HYBRID LASHES?

A MIX OF CLASSIC LASHES AND VOLUME FANS

Do you dream of having the perfect set of lashes? Then, we've got the solution for you: hybrid lashes.

The term Hybrid lashes describe a mix of classic and volume lash extensions. There is a 1:1 ratio for classic extensions, and one extension is applied to each natural lash. In contrast, a 2-5:1 ratio is used for volume extensions. As a result, two to five extensions are applied to each natural lash. Combining the two create a customized look that's more natural than a complete volume set—with added texture, so your eyes stand out just right!

We recommend hybrid lashes if you want to add some luscious volume and texture to your natural lashes without going overboard with a full-on glamorous look. You'll enjoy more fullness than classic extensions offer while still keeping things feeling natural.

HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?

If you have extensions, it's essential to know that everyone's natural lashes have a personal growth cycle. Your extensions will fall out as your natural lashes do, so you should plan to get touch-ups every 2-3 weeks.

Because of this, regardless of whether they are hybrid or volume extensions, they will last the same amount of time as classic extensions.

WHY SHOULD I GET HYBRID LASHES?

When it comes to your lashes, one size doesn’t fit all. So we’ll repeat it: One. Size. Does. Not. Fit. All. And that’s why we love hybrid lashes! You can personalize your look and create a unique style that’s all yours—no matter how your natural lash line looks!

Hybrid lashes blend individual classic extensions and fans of ultra-thin extensions (also known as “volume”). Therefore, you can mix and match to get exactly the look you want! If you want more dramatic volume in one area, go for it! If you want to add a little extra thickness near the inner corner of your eye? No problem! With hybrid lashes, you can adjust the density and amount of extensions in any given area depending on the look you want.

1

CREATES TEXTURE AND INTEREST

If you want your lashes to look natural but still crave a little drama, this is for you. Combining traditional and volume extensions creates a soft, wispy look but is also highly glamorous and tailored to make your lashes look natural and captivating

2

HIDES LASH IMPERFECTIONS

These lashes are perfect for when you have weaker and thinner lashes or an uneven lash line that could use some volume where it's needed most.

3

GOOD INTRODUCTION TO VOLUME

They're also great if this is your first time trying volume lashes because they won't be too dramatic.

APPLICATION PROCESS

Following the preparation process described in the definitive guide to eyelash extensions, the natural lashes are analyzed and styling is planned. 

Here's how you apply hybrid lashes. Using both classic lashes and volume fans, your trained lash professional will create a set of lashes that perfectly suits your needs and desired appearance. For example, they can use classic extensions to lengthen natural eyelashes significantly. In contrast, your stylist can use volume extensions in areas where natural lashes are thin or sparse. A hybrid set will balance an irregular lash line and create a textured look when applied strategically. The result is beautiful, natural-looking lashes with added volume and fluffiness from the fans.

If you are currently wearing classic lashes and want to change to hybrid or volume, introducing fans at your refill appointment is an option. Adding fans to an existing classic set is quite common and often suggested instead of doing a removal and new set.

*It takes more time to apply hybrid lashes than just classic; therefore, you should expect to spend more time at your appointment.

CARE & MAINTENANCE

As long as a qualified Lash Artist applies hybrid lash extensions and you follow these care tips, hybrid lash extensions do not damage your natural lashes.

Avoid getting your lashes wet (water, sweat, etc.) for 24 hours after application.

Wash your lashes every day with a lash cleanser to remove debris.

Don’t be rough on your lashes. Brush them gently every day to avoid breakage.

HYBRID EYELASH EXTENSIONS VS CLASSIC

Because there are two types of extensions used in a hybrid set (the thicker classic extensions and the ultra-thin extension used for fans), they create a beautiful textured look that’s soft and wispy but still totally glam—and they also make it easy to customize your lashes so they look natural with just a hint of drama (or vice versa).

  • CLASSIC LASHES

    If you already have thick, evenly spaced natural lashes, classic extensions can add length, curl, and add style. Classic lashes will not give you volume and can expose an uneven and sparse lash line.

  • HYBRID LASHES

    Adding fans to individual extensions (which is ultimately what a hybrid set is), can even out a broken lash line and make your lashes appear thicker. They also add dimension and create a beautiful wispy, sometimes spiky look.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Get it done right: you should ensure your lash artist has the proper training in classic and volume lashes and knows how to customize the style for your unique eye.

As you can see, there are several options when it comes to eyelash extensions. Hybrid lashes offer a more natural look, covering up your existing lash problems. Talk to your lash stylist if you are interested in trying this look for yourself but aren't sure if it is suitable for your eye shape. They will be able to give you a recommendation on the best style for the look that you want.
