Hybrid Eyelash Extensions: Everything You Need To Know[Update2022]


Hybrid eyelash extensions are hot. What are they, and why are they so popular? How do they look? This article will guide you to know all of them. Let’s begin our journey.

What are hybrid eyelash extensions?

Hybrid eyelash extension is a mix of classic eyelashes and volume eyelashes. The ratio for volume lashes are from 1:2 to 1:10. The popular hybrid sets are 50/50, 40/60, and 30/70 volume to classic lash extensions. Hybrid lashes will give fuller than the classic lash set but not as much fullness and drama as the volume lash set. And they can easily become wispy hybrid lash extensions if you add longer lengths of classic lashes.


Hybrid lashes vs classic

Classic eyelash extensions are one false lash extension applied to one natural lash. That’s 1:1 ratio lash tech. Classic lashes could extend the length of natural lashes and add thickness. This lash tech gives clients a very natural looking.

Hybrid lashes are a mixture of classic lashes and volume lashes. They could achieve various lash sets by combining these two lash techs.

Hybrid lashes vs volume

Volume lash extensions are grabbing 2-5 (or more)false eyelashes to create a fan first, then applying to one natural lash hair. Volume lashes offer a fuller and more dramatic look, while hybrid lashes are more fluffy and textured.

Who can apply for hybrid eyelash extensions?

Hybrid lashes are perfect for people who want to add a bit of volume than classic eyelash extensions but are not fuller than volume eyelash extensions.

Besides, if your clients have thin or gaping lashes, you can recommend hybrid lashes.

Thus, you can give them a charming lash look and not worry about being too heavy to damage natural lashes.

What kind of lash trays can I use for hybrid eyelash extensions?

Classic lashes:

You can choose 0.15mm thickness lashes and 0.18 or 0.20mm lashes if you have clients who want hybrid lash extensions with mega volume lashes. We recommend ellipse flat lash extensions. Thus you can save 30-40% more weight than regular classic lashes.

Volume lashes:

You can use premium lash extensions in 0.03mm, 0.05mm in 6-10 fans, or 0.07mm in 3-5 fans.

Easy fan lash extensions are also an excellent choice for faster fanning, and the lash price is lower than regular volume lashes.

Another choice is premade volume fans. You can finish the hybrid lash extensions at two times the speed.

Step 2: Please use a comfortable bed for your clients. The hybrid lash application process will take 2-3 hours.

Step 3: Wash the client’s lashes and apply lash primer on the lashes before the hybrid eyelash extensions.


Step 4: Put the eye patches on the lower eyelids of your clients, and create the lash mapping.


Step 5: Start applying classic eyelashes. Usually, we use 0.15mm lashes. The eye shape will be coming when the classic eyelashes are applied. You can apply one classic and one volume fan if you are a beginner.


Step 6: After finishing the classic lash layer, you can apply volume lashes. Bother handmade fans and premade fans are okay.


Step 7: When you finish the application, comb the lashes with the lash wands to ensure they are set.
