What are Hybrid Lashes?
Don’t get baffled by the terminology… ‘Hybrid Lashes’ is a technique which has been used for several years by some of our expert trainers and technicians prior to the new ‘Hybrid’ term. The Hybrid technique is a combination of two different lash application techniques rolled into one set of lashes. For example; individual classic Extend, one false lash extension on one isolated natural lash combined with Russian Volume, multiple lash extensions on one natural lash. This type of lash technique gives lash techs the freedom to be creative and develop their lash application skills. This is achieved by adding long lengths of classic lashes that are strategically placed to create a frame and filled in between with the volume extensions to give a spiky textured look.
This technique can even be used with Express lashes.
Many celebs are also loving this technique. Kim Kardashian often has Hybrid Lashes. Some lash technicians actually call Hybrid Lashes ‘Kim K Lashes’ instead.
Benefits of Hybrid Lashes?
There are a variety of benefits of Hybrid Lashes and each delivers an individual finish. This particular technique results in an extraordinary rich dark volume set of lashes. If your natural lashes aren’t thick, Hybrid Lashes will achieve a fuller look to fill in any empty gaps. Classic Extend lashes can make low-density natural lashes look more sparse. Mixing two techniques together to deliver a unique finish to you.
