Introducing Hybrid Lashes: The Hype and How They’re Different

Drum roll, please:

HYBRID LASHES ARE HERE!

…and they’re already an early hit with guests!

What Are Hybrid Lashes?

“Hybrid” is an application method that provides fabulous fullness and gorgeous texture while strategically combining our classic and volume lash applications across your lash line.

They’re the perfect choice for anyone torn between our classic and volume lashes.

Why Add Hybrid Lashes as a Service (When There Are Already Classic and Volume)?

Simple: Because of you! We’re at the forefront of the lash industry, and this lash look has been trending on and off the red carpet.

If there’s ever opportunity to expand our eyelash extension service menu to give you more choice, we’re on top of it!

How Are Hybrid Lashes Different at The Lash Lounge Than Another Salon?

At our salons, hybrid lashes are different from anywhere else because we developed the application method exclusively for The Lash Lounge. We use a strategic technique that provides the perfect combination of the two things our guests love most: length and fullness.

Who Can Wear Hybrid Lashes?

Anyone who has a natural eyelash to attach a lash extension to.

A guest who desires a fuller lash line.

Anyone who loves volume lashes but might be looking for an affordable alternative.

Anyone looking for a more textured lash look.

Why Has This Service Been Referred to As The “celebrity lash service”?

Many high profile celebs and influencers are known to love their full, textured, va-va-va-volume looking lashes, and we must admit, they are always on point!

If I Already Have Classic Lashes, Why Should I Consider Switching to Hybrid?

If you have classic lash extensions and, you can’t help it, your lash-loving heart desires an even fuller lash line, it’s time to consider a relationship with hybrid lashes!

Fullness is the name of most of our guests’ lash games, and this method will give you just that. Another perk: If you’re trying to stick to a budget, hybrid lashes are just a rung above classic lashes in terms of ongoing investment. In other words, a total win-win!

Store-Bought vs. Salon-Quality Lashes: What’s the Difference?

Attention Lash Lovers! If you have ever wondered what makes lashes you can purchase at the store different from lashes you get professionally done at a salon, we’re sharing the inside scoop!

LONGEVITY: WHICH LAST LONGER?

Typically, store-bought lash products are made for temporary application, meaning you wear them once, then toss them out. When you get them professionally applied at a salon like The Lash Lounge, they’ll last anywhere from weeks to months! As long you keep them clean and keep your hands away from your eyes as much as possible, then only when your natural lash hairs shed will your lash extensions shed with them.

APPLICATION: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Another difference is that the lashes you purchase at the store must be self-applied. This can require patience, skill and often leads to frustration when you cannot get those darn strips on straight! We love a good DIY project, but not when it comes to our lashes!

The beauty of visiting a reputable salon to have your lashes applied is that you get to lay back, relax and let trained experts work their magic.

Unlike the store-bought lash extensions, our lashes are individually applied to single natural hairs with a medical-grade adhesive. So, not only is the quality itself better, visiting a salon gives you the opportunity to let the experts give you a natural, voluminous-looking lash line.

Speaking of quality, here at The Lash Lounge, our lashes are made of premium synthetic material. Unlike store-bought lashes, our lashes are waterproof, sweatproof, showerproof and, when applied properly, will last until the natural hair sheds and both it and the extension fall out. Psst…don’t be that girl at the pool with a lash strip hanging off your eye! Instead splish, splash and enjoy all of your water activities with your luxurious lash extensions in place, minus an embarrassing lash mishap or mascara running down your face. (That’s never pretty, ladies!)

WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH MAGNETIC LASHES?

There are a number of store bought options when it comes to lashes, such as lash strips, individual lash tabs, and the latest product…magnetic lashes, which we’ve been getting some questions about.

Just like store-bought lash strips, magnetic lashes offer a temporary, self-application option for lashes. They also use tiny magnets to sandwich your natural lashes between two strips and, aside from being very difficult to attach properly (and keep in place), they can weigh your natural lashes down.

Not only that, magnetic strip lashes can cause your natural lashes to break off or prematurely fall out (yikes!). Due to the hassle of getting them applied properly on your own and the damage that can be made to your natural lashes, we do not recommend magnetic lashes.

After all this, we know there’s something to that age-old saying: You get what you pay for! And it’s O.K. to invest in yourselves—especially when that means a luxurious beauty service that will give you gorgeous, salon-quality lashes. That’s not to mention the many precious minutes you’ll regain in the morning by simplifying your morning makeup routine. Who’s up for some extra zzzz’s?
