Wispy Lashes Vs Hybrid Lash Extension

As a lash artist, maybe you’ve seen it all. Everything from the basic everyday natural look to the most extravagant, over-the-top, "let's get ready to rumble" extensions you could imagine. But one question that always comes up is: What's the difference between wispy lashes and hybrid lash extensions?

Eyelash extensions are pretty much all the rage these days, and for good reason! They're an easy way to add length and volume to your client's natural lashes, and they can make any look more awake and refreshed. But if you're new to this whole lash extension thing, you might be wondering about these two. 'Wispy' and 'hybrid' are two terms often used to describe lash styles.

When it comes to lash artistry, there are many different styles and techniques used. Some are more complex than others, but one thing is for sure: each style has its own set of challenges.

In this blog post, we're going to talk about 2 of the most popular lash styles!

 

WHAT ARE WISPY EYELASHES?

If you're looking to up your eyelash game, then it's time to start thinking about wispy lash extensions.

Wispy lashes are no joke—they require a variety of lashing techniques, lash types and forms, which can make it difficult for you to get the right look.

But don't worry! We've got you covered.

Let's break it down: Wispy lashes are described as freestyle lashing. This means that lash artists create an uneven spikey appearance with varied lash lengths that gradually rise and fall over the eyes. This is what gives most lash artists difficulty when it comes to wispy eyelash extension mapping.

Wispy lashes are bold, beautiful, and on-trend. They're a great look for the modern woman who wants to stand out from the crowd. Wispy lashes are a variation of strip lashes that create a spikey effect. The extensions are placed in a fan shape which gives the illusion of false strip lashes—but with more volume!

This look uses premade or promade fans and a close fan (lash wisp/spikes - not classic lash which is opposite to hybrid set which uses classic lash)

Wispy lashes are perfect for anyone looking to get some extra volume in their lash game. It's also a great option if you want your client's lashes to look dramatic but still natural (it depends if you’re client wants wispy classic lashes, wispy hybrid lashes or wispy volume classic lashes)

HOW TO APPLY WISPY LASH EXTENSIONS?

It's easy, but you have to know how.

First, you put the spikes then you fill in between the spikes.

Personally, I like to fill in the middle last because it's much easier and has easier visibility generally. 

But you don't need to take my word for it! You can try this yourself with any number of clients and see what happens.

Wispy lashes are great because they cater to so many different clients and make you a lot of money. But they're also hard to master without the right training—you need to practice with at least 20-30 clients before you start feeling comfortable with this lash style.

ARE HYBRID LASHES THE BEST?

When your client wants to go big but not too big, a hybrid lash set is your best bet.

Hybrid lashes are a combination of single classic lashes and volume lash fans. They're perfect for clients who have sparse or thin natural lashes. A hybrid can add some density and volume without going overboard with the volume lashes.

A hybrid lash combines the volume that comes from volume lashes with the natural look of classic lashes. 

This look uses premade or promade fans and a classic lash (not lash wisps/spikes which is opposite to the wispy set which uses lash wisps) OR YY lashes.

If your client is used to classic lash extensions, but they're not sure they want to go full-on volume, hybrid lashes are the perfect compromise. They'll get the thicker lashes they've been craving without having to commit to a full set of volume lashes right away.

HOW TO APPLY HYBRID LASH EXTENSIONS?

Start with the classic lashes. They'll help you make sure the spikes are evenly spread out within the set.

Fill in any gaps with the premade or promade fans: these are less curly and shorter, so you can still distinctly see the spikey effect from the classic lashes. Keep doing it until you fill the entire eye.

And voila! Your hybrid set will have a texture that's both spikey and voluminous!

DID YOU KNOW?

You can use YY for a hybrid set?

YY lashes are like 2D-4D volume fans, but with a bonus. They have more surface area than regular lash fans and excellent retention, so your clients can be confident that their lashes will last longer than usual. And this also means you won't spend as much time between lash fills.

CONCLUSION

So, there you have it—the difference between wispy and hybrid lashes is more than just their names. While they may have a lot in common, their applications differ, which means you can choose the style that's right for your client.

If you want to make the most of your client's natural lashes with minimal effort, go with a hybrid. If you're looking for a more dramatic look that still feels natural enough to wear every day, go with wispy. Either way, we know you're client going to love the results!
