Wispy Lashes: Tips and Tricks

What is a wispy?

Wispy lashes is a technique where a handmade lash fan is created using 2-6 lashes, then applied using alternating lash lengths, which gives them the appearance of a False Strip Lashes & Kardashian look. Wispy Volume Full Set is suitable for clients who desire a Spikey False Lash Look.

The easiest way to describe it is to call it lashing freestyle because it combines versatile lashing techniques, lash types, and shapes. For the staggered eyelash extensions, lash artists use various lash lengths that gradually rise and fall across the eyes and create a spikey appearance. This is what makes wispy eyelash extension mapping a headache for most lash artists.

Some tips for beginners that you will surely learn so much. Wispy Lashes will eventually cater to so many clients and you’ll surely earn so much money.

It is very hard to master without the right training, you need to practice at least on 20-30 clients to start feeling comfortable with the look.

The 3 lash fans on the picture above show the various kinds of fans you can make for the wisps. I like to do the first 2 because they are still fluffy and they can actually look really good on the set.

The 3rd wispy lash fan I found disappears and blends in within volume sets. It would only look good on classic wispy set since it’s a really fine lash fan.

In classic sets, it can look good, but never in volume mega volume sets. It is because of the density of the lashes in the base will take over and the wisp will just disappear.

I like to apply the wisps first, before filling up the lash base with the fans . This is a personal preference, but I find it is much easier for a beginner because it’s a complicated lash look. By mapping out all the lash wisps first it makes everything much easier, you can think of it as laying out the foundation before building a house.


The bottom line of how to achieve this wispy eyelash extension look is simply mastering the art of lash mapping. There are various lash mapping that you can to achieve the wispy effect look. It’s a unique way of planning as to which lash goes where. 

We recommend that you start by marking high points – the places where spikes are going to be. This way you’ll be able to visualize the look you are going for from the very beginning. If your client doesn’t have any specific requirements, we recommend that you don’t use the lashes of the same lengths for all the spikey points. For example, start with an 11-12mm for the first spike, then go for 13-14mm for the next one and peak with 16mm. The highest point can be either in the middle or at the outer corner of the eye. The first one will open up the eyes while the second one will make it look more winged. Which one you choose solely depends on the preference of the client and the shape of their eyes.

So the wispy / Kim K lashes are applied with using specific mapping, which gives that wispy, uneven lash line. This type of styling is great for girls that love to wear a lot of makeup and have a very bright outgoing personality.

We recommend the Kim K style for special occasions. This look can definitely be adjusted to fit a more low key personality or lifestyle, by making it a shorter length or making the contrast between the wisps a little less pronounced. This style can also be reproduced in classic as well as hybrid styles for girls that want a more low key look.
