Can I Mix Classic & Volume Eyelash Extensions?
Mixing Classic & Volume Eyelash Extensions
The answer to this question is yes! A mixture of classic and volume eyelash extensions are most commonly known as Hybrid extensions or a ‘mixed set’. If you are an eyelash technician and you are not yet mixing classic and volume extensions to create a set of hybrid lashes, we would strongly recommend you begin doing so! Hybrid extensions are very popular as they are the perfect in-between of classics and Russian / Volume lashes and are perfect for an everyday glam look. Keep reading to find out why and how you can incorporate Hybrid eyelash extensions into your lash business.
To create Hybrid or a mixed set of eyelash extensions, you will need both Classic and Volume extensions. We recommend you apply the volume extensions first and then go ahead and apply the classic lashes as this will make application simpler. There is also no set ratio of how many Classic lashes you apply to Volume lashes, but extensions should always be applied to each of your client natural eyelashes. You will also need to incorporate a mixture of diameters, there is little need to mix more than two diameter of lashes in a Hybrid set so don’t over complicate things! Lash artist most commonly mix .07 and .15 dimeter lashes to create a gorgeous set of Hybrid lashes. However, for a more dramatic set many lash technicians opt for a mix of .07 and 0.18 diameter. As a lash artist, it is all about making custom style to suit your clients want and a set that suits there face so do not feel restricted by recommended dimeter mixes! Getting creative is what makes an amazing eyelash technician.
It is great to always over a variety of eyelash extension styles as you will be able to charge a variety of prices. Usually price starts at a Classic set being the lowest price, then Hybrid and followed by a Russian / Volume set. This is due to the amount of products being used per set (extensions, materials) and the amount of time it takes to be applied. The more products used and the longer the set takes to complete means the more you can charge per set. By adding Hybrid extensions, you will also be able to bring in more clients as you are able to create a lash style suited to everyone’s eyelash desires.
