There’s a lot of conversation about ‘Hybrid Lashes’ at the moment. We think it’s time to unveil the mystery that’s surrounding them. Below we intend to clarify what technique is used to create them, the benefits of this type of lash application and what style of look can be achieved. Whether you are a lash tech wondering what we’re all talking about, a major lash extension lover or simply considering getting eyelash extensions for the first time – we get it! When you’re unfamiliar with the often-obscure lash lingo, it can be confusing. We will guide your discovery through ‘Hybrid Lashes’ to see if they could be an option for you or for your clients.
Don’t get baffled by the terminology… ‘Hybrid Lashes’ is a technique which has been used for several years by some of our expert trainers and technicians prior to the new ‘Hybrid’ term. The Hybrid technique is a combination of two different lash application techniques rolled into one set of lashes. For example; individual classic Extend, one false lash extension on one isolated natural lash combined with Russian Volume, multiple lash extensions on one natural lash. This type of lash technique gives lash techs the freedom to be creative and develop their lash application skills. This is achieved by adding long lengths of classic lashes that are strategically placed to create a frame and filled in between with the volume extensions to give a spiky textured look.
Hybrid isn’t a technique which is taught, like Extend or SVS, by Nouveau Lashes, as the style of lash is created by a culmination of different lash extension techniques, used together. If you are already trained in Extend and Russian Volume or SVS,you can produce Hybrid Lashes with no additional training.
This technique can even be used with Express lashes. Combining cluster lashes and individual lashes together. We have been teaching this to our technicians for years, for example with the lash techs from our NL Key Account Regis.
Many celebs are also loving this technique. Kim Kardashian, often has Hybrid Lashes. Some lash technicians actually call Hybrid Lashes ‘Kim K Lashes’ instead.
