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 extensions to a single natural lash. This type of procedure augments the natural lash line by giving it more length. It simply extends the lashes you already have.
What are Volume Lashes?
Volume lashes involve gluing 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 between 2 to 6 extensions glued to a single natural lash. This technique is also called the Russian Volume extension.
What are Hybrid Lashes?
Hybrid lashes are simply a mix between 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.
Hybrid eyelash extensions are a great way to get a subtle classic uplift while also getting the darker lash line and more depth from volume lashes. It’s essentially the best of both worlds where your lashes will be noticeable, but not outrageous.
