Hybrid Lashes? Everything You Need To Know

Posted on: 3 August 2020


If you were born with eyelashes that are barely there, you may have worn false eyelashes at some point. Eyelash extensions are much like false eyelashes, although they are longer-lasting than those eyelashes at the pharmacy you glue on your eyelids. Hybrid extensions are an eyelash extension that is a hybrid of a traditional eyelash and a false eyelash that gives you both length and volume. This mixture gives you a fan-like eyelash, which can look more natural than other types of eyelashes. Read on for further information about hybrid lash extensions.

How Are Hybrid Eyelashes Applied?

Hybrid lashes are meant to look more natural, so they aren't quite as uniform as a lengthening eyelash would be. These eyelashes are applied using volume lashes and fan lashes. They are applied using tweezers around your existing eyelashes. This gives you a messy, more natural look. The eyelashes are chosen to match how your natural eyelashes curl and what color they are.

How Long Does It Take To Apply?

Hybrid eyelashes take a while to apply, and it can take over 2 hours to apply them. Hybrid eyelashes are a little more difficult to apply, as there are two different types of eyelashes being applied to the eyelids. 

How Long Do Hybrid Extensions Last?

Eyelash extensions usually last as long as it takes for your eyelashes to grow out. This usually takes about 6-8 weeks, depending on how quickly your eyelashes grow. When your eyelashes begin to grow out, you will begin to see the lash line from your extensions. You need to have the old extensions removed and new ones applied if you want new extensions. Have your eyelashes maintained every 2-3 weeks to prevent the last line from being exposed.

How Do You Care For Your Eyelash Extensions?

You need to remember that you have the eyelash extensions and stop yourself from picking at your eyelashes or the glue holding them on. You need to keep them dry for at least 24 hours after you have them applied to allow time for the glue to cure. Don't sleep on your eyelashes, so avoid stomach or side sleeping for a couple of days to prevent creasing your eyelashes.
