This is where we come in.
Our team of lash loving experts at BELO have put together this guide to creating a stunning wispy lash look that’ll leave your clients speechless. From insider tips to some of our favourite products, this blog will cover everything you need to know to master the ultimate wispy lash.
What is a wispy lash look?
A wispy eyelash look is a technique that creates the appearance of long fluttery lashes. ‘Wispy’ describes the feathery texture of the lashes, giving them a soft and ethereal flair that everyone loves. This style enhances the beauty of natural lashes as it incorporates volume and length while maintaining a stunning, effortless look!
To achieve this look, you can use a variety of techniques including the popular Russian strip method, which involves applying multiple individual lashes to each natural lash, creating the most voluminous fluttery effect. You can make any lash shape into a wispy look by varying lengths along the lash line, even cat eye shapes!
What makes lashes wispy?
Wispy lashes are all about achieving a fluffy effect. It’s all about using different lengths and spacing them out strategically in the lash line to create wispy volume. In order for your lashes to be considered wispy, they need to be fluffy with an air of effortlessness. The placement and length of each fan can make or break a wispy look, so you’ll want to use lashes that vary in length, creating a lovely flutter that is sure to turn heads.
How to create wispy eyelash looks
There are lots of different methods which you can use to create wispy lashes, and there are plenty of hacks you can use to make the process easier. These are our top recommendations:
Narrow fans are one of the most common techniques used to create a wispy lash look. As all lash techs know, narrow fans are created in a similar manner to regular volume fans, but you do not ‘fan’ out the individual lashes as widely.
Using narrow fans to bring a wispy finish to your eyelashes is dependent on their length and thickness. Construct your narrow fan using a lah length that is slightly longer than the other volume fans in the treatment, these narrow fans will act as the wisps. If you’re wanting a more choppy look rather than just wispy, place two narrow fans on adjacent lashes to define the chop.
It's also good to keep in mind that selecting narrow fans with a variety of lengths actress the lash line is crucial for that soft feathery look. It sounds obvious, but you cannot have a narrow fan in the inner corner being the same length as the outer corner.
Narrow fans are one of the more challenging ways to create wispy lashes as they require an alteration of your normal lashing technique and it may take you a while to get the hang of it.
Rather than constructing narrow fans for every wisps, premade spikes are a simpler way to produce wispy lash looks. Premade spikes are individual lashes that have been bonded together to construct a spike which can be used in more dramatic wispy looks. To create the look, simply place appropriate lengths strategically along the lash line to break up the lengths.
