The #1 Wispy Eyelash Extension Style Chart
November 30, 2022 by The Lash Professional.
Years back, people could only get classic eyelash extensions, which are one individual lash extension per natural lash. But people wanted more choices and styles as aesthetic trends evolved, so new styles were developed. The most popular style now is wispy lashes, which are denser, fluffier, and have more volume than other types of eyelashes.
If you're an eyelash extension specialist looking to perfect your wispy style, or a client trying to find the best style for your next appointment, this wispy eyela
What Does Having Wispy Eyelashes Mean?
Wispy lashes are achieved by having lash extensions that are thinner at the base and gradually get thicker toward the ends. This style is also called “feather” lashes. The wispy lash style gives your eyes a natural but enhanced look. The preferred effect is to make your eyes look wider and more open, which is perfect for an everyday look. Wispy eyelashes can also look gorgeous and glamorous for special occasions.
How Do I Achieve the Wispy Look?
There are several ways to achieve wispy lashes. The main goal is to create a fluffy, voluminous effect.
You can either:
- Use wispy lashes that are already pre-made. These come in various lengths, thicknesses, and curvatures
- Make your own wispy lashes by cutting classic lashes into smaller sections.
- Use mascara to try and replicate the wispy lash look.
If you're a lash technician, you'll know how to achieve the wispy look, particularly with the first two methods. If you're a lash client, make sure to communicate your desired look to your technician.
Now that you know all about wispy lashes let's move on to the wispy eyelash extension style chart and styles.
Wispy Lash Styles
There are various wispy lash styles that you can achieve, depending on the length, thickness, and curvature of the lashes. The three primary styles are classic, volume, and hybrid.
Classic wispy lashes are perfect for those who want a more natural look. The classic wispy style uses thinner, shorter lashes that are applied one by one to your existing lashes. This method is great for people with sparse lashes or those who want a softer look.
Volume wispy lashes use multiple, thinner lashes to create a fuller, more dramatic look. This style is perfect for special occasions or for anyone who wants to add more volume and drama to their lashes. It is done by applying 2-6 thin lashes to each of your existing lashes.
Hybrid wispy lashes are a mix of classic and volume wispy styles. This method uses both thinner and thicker wispy lashes to create a unique, intermediate look. You can achieve this look by mixing classic and volume wispy lashes or by applying classic wispy lashes to the inner corner of your eye and volume wispy lashes to the outer corner.
How Does Lash Mapping Help With Wispy Lashes?
Lash mapping is the process of plotting out where each individual lash extension will be placed. This is done by using a fine-tipped pen or Lash Stylist Tool to mark the placement of each lash on a disposable adhesive strip. The lash stylist then uses the lash map as a guide to apply the extensions.
Lash mapping is particularly important for wispy lashes because of the wispy lash style's graduated look. You want to make sure that the extensions are applied in a way that creates a natural, fluffy look. Lash mapping helps to achieve this by allowing the lash stylist to be precise with their placement.
Applying Wispy Lashes
The first step is to prepare your work area by setting up all of your supplies. You'll need:
- Lash extensions in the style and length of your choice
- Lash adhesive
- Lash tweezers
- A lash brush
Once you have all of your supplies, you're ready to start applying the lashes!
Step 1: Start by cleaning the natural lashes with an oil-free cleanser. This will help the lash adhesive to better adhere to the lashes.
Step 2: Next, take a wispy lash and dip it into the adhesive. Wait a few seconds for the adhesive to become tacky before proceeding to the next step.
Step 3: Using your lash tweezers, pick up the wispy lash and place it on top of the natural lash, as close to the base of the lash line as possible.
Step 4: Gently press down on the wispy lash to secure it in place. Repeat steps 2-4 until you have achieved your desired look.
Step 5: Once you're finished, use your lash brush to lightly comb through the lashes and separate any that are stuck together.
