To best understand what Hybrid Eyelash Extensions are, you'll need to know the difference between Classic lashes and Volume lashes because Hybrid is a combination of both.
What are Classic Lashes?
Classic lash extensions involve gluing a single extension to a single natural lash. This type of procedure augments the natural lash line by giving it more length and, in some cases, thickness. It simply enhances the lashes you already have.
What are Volume Lashes?
Volume lashes involve applying a fan, or multiple extensions, to a single natural lash. This type of procedure creates a sense of greater depth and darker lash line since there are far more lashes than normal.
A Volume lash fan could have about 3 or more extensions glued to a single natural lash. This technique is also called the Russian Volume extension, 3D, 5D, Mega Volume, etc.
What are Hybrid Lashes?
Hybrid lashes are simply a combination of Classic and Volume extensions. Instead of placing a single lash on each natural lash, the lash artist or technician will stagger the fans inbetween the individuals.
So one natural lash might have a single extension and the natural lash next to it might have a volume 3D fan of 3 lashes attached to it.
Why Get Hybrid Lashes?
The asthetic of hybrid lashes is slowly becoming the next trend in eyelash extension styles. The staggering effect between classic and volume gives a more elegant look while maintaining a more natural solidness.
While classic extensions are more natural and volume is more dramatic, hybrid eyelash extensions are best for clients who want a volume look without too much drama.
