Eyelash Extensions: What is the best curl for me?

Creating the Perfect Set of Extensions


When it comes to eyelash extensions there is no one size or curl that fits all. It is all about selecting the right size, curl and material for you in order to achieve your perfect eyelashes. What is so great about eyelash extensions is the freedom you have to customise your own unique set of eyelashes, some of the many ways you can customise is through the size of the lashes such as the length and thickness, the curl used and the material used (synthetic, silk, faux mink or mink). If you are not a lash technician and are unsure about what all these lash tech words mean, you can also book a consultation with your eyelash technician who will recommend what size and curl suits you best. We have put together a straight forward and easy to follow guide for all of you that are wanting to know and understand more about all things lash curls.

A great way to create bespoke unique extensions that suit your client perfectly is to use a mix of different curls. Remember the curlier the extension, the more dramatic the finishes results will be.

B Curl Eyelash Extensions

B Curl: This is a great curl for those who are looking for a more natural look with extra length and thickness as it mimics your natural eyelashes. This will also help you achieve the appearance of more open eyes. The B curl has a rather straight base with a gentle, gradual curl which will help you to achieve a subtle lift.

Best for: those with a slight curl in their natural lashes. The B curl is not recommended for those who have straight or downward slanting eyelashes as it won’t work out as well in comparison to those with a slight curl as it tends to drag down the eyelashes.

C Curl Extensions

C Curl: This is one of the most popular and most used curl. This is because the C curl can be used in several ways and suits almost every eye shape! So what is the difference between the B and C curl? The C curl has a stronger curl than the B curl and therefore will open the eyes more than the B curl will. Many clients love the C curl due to the way it opens up their eyes and gives the appearance of wider and awake eyes. Due to the C curl being curlier than the B curl this creates a more dramatic finish than those wearing a B curl (more natural). The C curl can also be blended amongst other curls to achieve a more dramatic or more natural look.

Best for: The C curl is great for clients that are unsure what kind of finish they want as it is the perfect in between, not too natural and not to dramatic. This curl works great with a large range of eye shapes which makes it such a lash tech must have!

D Curl Eyelash Extensions

D Curl: A great option for those who want to achieve a very dramatic finish as it not only opens eyes but also creates a full and thick lash line. However, those who wear D curl will notice that their extensions do not last as long as those who wear a B or C lash curl for example. This is because D curls need to get infills more often due to the shorter length the eyelash extension has to bond to. Therefore the glue is unable to unable to hold the extensions as long as those less curly extensions.

Best for: Those who want to achieve a dramatic, thick and full set of lashes. However, although this works with a variety of eye shapes, it is not recommended for those with hooded eyes. This is because of how curled the extension is and will most likely touch your eyelid which can cause irritation. It is also recommend that those with naturally larger eyes should avoid this curl if that don’t want to give the appearance of even larger eyes.
