Hybrid Lash Extensions
Hybrid lashes are the perfect blend of Classic and Volume lashes. Typically, Hybrid lash extensions are a mixture of 50% Classic and 50% Volume. Still, the great thing about this type is its flexibility to cater to each unique pair of eyes so that lash experts can vary the Classic to Volume lash ratio that adapts to different desired outcomes.
It is no secret that nowadays, everybody is looking for ways to get the perfect natural lash look that boosts their confidence. However, most people do not want the overdramatic feeling. This is where hybrid eyelash extensions come in.
Lash experts are finding the perfect technique to experiment with lash volume and figure out the ideal amount for each unique set of eyes. Hybrid extensions allow them to apply varying amounts of portion to different areas on the lash line. This will enable the focus on sparse areas on the lash line. When it comes to creating the perfect customized lash look for each eye shape, there is no doubt that Hybrid lash extensions are the ideal solution. They also give the illusion of softer and more natural lashes while improving length and curl.
Nowadays, clients ask their lash techs to give them a natural feeling but with a little dramatic effect on their lashes. Hybrid lash extensions are the go-to lashes to achieve the look.
As lash artists, you need to know how to customize the length and curl of hybrid lash extensions to complement each client's eye shape and natural lashes. This is where lash mapping enters the picture. It is a technique that is gaining well-earned acclaim among lash techs. Lash mapping is the latest and perfect way to determine the best-suited style. It gives artists more room to play with creativity and the outcome that takes their service to a whole new level.
There are different ways and guidelines for using the different lash mapping designs. Since each eye shape is different, it is indispensable to know how to navigate and adapt to each new look.
- Doll lash mapping: Doll eye lash mapping gives an open eye look by adding curlier lashes along the middle section of the eyes, giving an overall open look. This type of mapping goes perfectly with almond-shaped eyes and wide-set eyes.
- Cat-eye mapping: If your client has a closed set or round eyes, then the cat-eye lash mapping is a perfect look for them. This technique utilizes the longest length lashes towards the outer edges of the eyes and gives the appearance of a wide eye shape.
- Squirrel lash mapping: Squirrel lash mapping is the way for downturned and hooded eyes. In this mapping type, you should start by using shorter extensions that get progressively longer along the lash line. It reaches its most extended length in the mid-section of the lash line and then again begins to get shorter towards the end.
- Kim K lashes: One of the most popular types of lash mapping is the Kim K lash mapping. In this technique, lash stylists add long lengths of extensions in different areas along the lash line, often referred to as 'spikes.' Beachy lash mapping is another popular mapping technique that is very similar to the Kim k style but has a more natural feel to it.
