If your eyes are hooded, you might want to stick with a B or C curl instead of a D, J or L curl. If the client doesn't have a lot of natural eyelashes in the outer corner, an L curl may be best for that situation. The D curl is designed to create a more dramatic look and is also recommended to customers who want to open their eyes spectacularly. Curl D is similar to curl C, but it's curlier.
They are especially good for customers who want a spectacular look and can also be used on customers who have eyelashes that are tilted downwards. These lashes will brighten and broaden your eyes while creating a distinctive curly look. The best eyelash extension curls for hooded eyes are M, L and L+ curls. Any eyelash extension that has such curls will suit people with hooded eyes.
Eyelash extensions with those three curls have a straight base followed by a beautiful curl from 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 tend to 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 goes up,” he says.
But that doesn't mean they're for everyone. L+ eyelashes can feel heavy and twisted as they grow. C-shaped eyelashes are also ideal for hooded eyes, as you need a light curl so they don't look like they're curling up on the hooded eyelid. This type of eyelash extension is perfect for people with droopy and hooded eyelids, as they will brighten and open them.
Eyelash extensions with this type of curls provide a combination of all the good qualities of other curls. M curl eyelash extensions straighten as you move towards the tip, they do not have extreme curls as in the case of C curls. L, L+ or M curls are more suitable for hooded eyes than with D-shaped eyelashes for hooded eyes, since this range of curls has a flat base with a nice curl in the center and at the tip of the extension. The shape of the eyes plays an important role in eyelash extension techniques, and this is especially true for customers with monolid, hooded eyes.
D Curl eyelashes are a great choice for those who want to improve their appearance without the hassle of having false eyelashes. DD Curl eyelashes are ideal for downward eyes because they lift the eye upwards and give it a spectacular look. This is due to the fact that the extension curves dramatically and will most likely touch the client's eyelid and cause irritation. Unlike other types of curls, these eyelashes are softer and are therefore suitable for people with deep eyes.
L-curls have a flat, straight base that provides a good connection between natural eyelashes and eyelash extensions. The straight base is also advantageous for people with hooded eyes because it causes eyelash extensions to protrude more from hidden eyelids. A good eyelash technician will carefully look at the unique shape of your eyes and adapt your extensions based on that shape, instead of choosing the same curl and length of eyelashes for all of their clients. To reduce alertness, Buhler recommends asking the eyelash technician to give you shorter lengths on a looser curl (such as a B curl).
