Finding the Perfect Lash Extension Curl
Written by: Paige Thompson
Are you confident in choosing a B, C, or D curl for your eyelash extension clients? How about CC or L?
Here’s some helpful tips when choosing the correct curl(s) of Elleebana lash extensions:
This relaxed curl is perfect for clients looking for an extremely natural lash set. These soft, slightly curved extensions are also great if your client has a curlier natural lash. B curls are ideal to help straighten out over-curled natural lash lines and to avoid the tips of the lashes from rubbing the brow bone or eyelid.
The most commonly used curl! C curls compliment almost every eye and face shape, and are widely used among lash extension artists globally.
C curls create a “pulling” effect on the eye when mixed with other curls; i.e.: use C curl on the outer corner and B on the inner to “pull” close set eyes further apart.
Designed to provide more lift, like a D curl, but with the base retention of a C curl. CC curls are a match made in heaven! Use this curl to give your clients just a little more drama to the lash line when C curls don’t quite do the trick.
This is for all the drama your client has dreamed of! D curls provide the ultimate lift and curl to a lash extension set.
D curls create a “lifting” effect when mixed with other curls; i.e.: use a D curl on the outer corner and a C curl on the inner corner to “lift” down turned eyes.
To properly use a D curl, make sure the natural lash has enough curl to it to properly attach the extension while ensuring you’re providing retention.
The lift and drama of a D curl with the retention of a B curl! An L curl lash is shaped just like it sounds. With it’s flat base and dramatic upturn, this is a perfect choice for clients with naturally straight or downward growing lashes who are looking for a dramatic difference.
To create a more corrective shape or to add some texture to the lash line, try mixing a few curls like:
B & C
C & CC
