For hooded eyes, a C-curl that makes the eyes stand out without being too dramatic. If you like drama and your eyes are prominent or closed, consider the D-curl. The best eyelash extension curls for hooded eyes are M, L and L+ curls. Any eyelash extensions that have those curls will fit people with hooded eyes.
Eyelash extensions with these three curls have a straight base followed by a beautiful curl in the middle of the tip. To achieve a natural effect, Nimbueva mainly relies on three types of eyelash extensions. For customers with open eyes looking for a more dramatic effect (and a lot of volume), CC and D curls usually offer the best results. Meanwhile, people with downward-facing eyelashes benefit from L+ curl extensions because they have “a longer leg and an extreme curl that increases,” he says.
But that doesn't mean they're for everyone. L+ eyelashes may feel heavy and twist as they grow. C, D, L: ideal for hooded, monolid and deep eyes, as the curls will open your eyes to create a brighter and wider look. This tab is also good for creating a more dramatic and defining look.
While some people say that the CC curl is the same as the D curl, it's a unique style that offers a good curl that isn't as curly as the D curl, but taller than the C. Because the C curl is more like natural lashes, the CC is a good way to slightly accentuate lashes with natural curls, such as teenagers. It's the best way to add volume to natural lashes that curl on their own. Eyelash technicians can find these tabs at a 65-degree angle.
On straight lashes, the L-curl can expand the look of the eyes, although it's not ideal for eyelashes that are tilted down or up. The ideal eyelash extensions for hooded eyes are those that can extend beyond the lid hood before they begin to curl. Also for clients with thick eyelids, this is not a recommended curl because this type of eyelash curl can twist backwards and touch the upper eyelids. The “U” shaped curl, the curliest type of eyelash extensions, creates a spectacular effect on both straight and descending lashes.
For folded eyes, CC Curl lashes are great, or you can use them in a hybrid set with D-lashes for many lifts. When your customers want to slightly tilt or curl their straight lashes without going overboard, eyelash extensions with a “J” shaped curl are the perfect choice. When you select eyelash extension curls for your clients, there are a million things you need to know to do a good job. When applying eyelash extensions to clients, it's not easy to decide which curl is perfect, unless you're an expert working with eyelash extensions for a decade or more.
You must add, subtract, and multiple different eyelash extensions and their features (think curl, length, thickness) to create custom sets of eyelash extensions for your clients. Keep in mind that the curls of eyelash extensions are represented by different alphabets of the English language. M-shaped eyelash extensions straighten as you move toward the tip, they don't have extreme curls like in the case of C-curls. Considered a curl that behaves like an eyelash lift for clients with eyelashes down, M Curl is spectacular if you expand your curls facing upwards.
L-shaped curls have a flat, straight base that provides a good bond between natural eyelashes and eyelash extensions.
