One of the newest lash treatments available today is the hybrid style. In this, classic and volume styles of lashes fuse into one to create a hybrid variety that customizes your eye even better than either style.Hybrid lashes can look naturally gorgeous when done correctly by an experienced lash tech. They’re also called mixed set lashes in some salons.
How Are Hybrid Lashes Different,The two most important characteristics that differentiate hybrid lashes from the other techniques are:
#1 Ratio: As we have already seen above, classic lashes use a ratio of 1 extension to 1 natural lash while volume lashes use a ratio of many extensions to 1 natural lash.
That’s why for the hybrid set, the density can vary between the two styles and ultimately depend on the look you want.
Typically, eyelash techs go for 50-50 or 70% volume and 30% classic in a hybrid set.
Oftentimes, lash techs ask you whether you want the fluffy lashes in the middle or towards the corners. Each option creates a different look altogether.
For instance, when you add volume lashes in the middle, it creates an open-eye look. If you add volume to the inner and outer corners, it will appear to contour your eyes and taper them.
#2 Thickness: As a hybrid lash set combines the thicknesses of both volume and classic sets, the thicknesses vary accordingly too.
Your lash tech may use thicknesses of 0.07 mm, 0.10 mm, or even 0.15 mm for the classic lashes that will be applied or thicknesses of 0.03 mm and 0.05 mm for volumes lashes that will be applied.
That being said, we generally don’t use more than 5D fans on hybrid sets at Divine Lashes.
Why not go above 5D fans you may ask?Well quite simply because then what’s the point? If you desire 5D + fans in a hybrid set, maybe a volume set altogether would be more appropriate.
