Eyelashes enhance natural beauty and provide a stunning foundation for the rest of your look. Investing in professional lash services will allow you to achieve gorgeous, fluttery eyes with minimal effort effortlessly.
Choosing the perfect lash style depends on your preferences and unique eye shape. This ultimate guide will provide an overview of different lash extension styles to help you choose the best option for your needs.
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent lashes made of synthetic or mink fibers designed to enhance the length and thickness of your natural eyelashes. These beautiful lashes create a more dramatic look and can make your eyes appear bigger, brighter, and more awake.
Individual lash extensions are typically attached to each natural eyelash using a safe and effective lash extension adhesive. Your desired look and eye shape determine the amount of lashes applied.
If you want fuller, more voluminous lashes, your lash artist at Lash & Company will apply a volume technique. This differs from Classic lashes as multiple light, thin lash extensions are clustered together to form “fans” and then applied to each of your natural eyelashes for a lush and high-density look.
Hybrid styles are also available – a mix of single lash extensions and fans for a more textured look that adds variety in shape to your lashes. Your stylist will advise on the best option for your eye shape and look you desire.
When it comes to eyelash extensions, length can dramatically affect the look of the eye. It’s essential to have various length options to cater to your client’s needs and style preferences.
Whether your client wants to achieve a natural-looking look or kick up the drama, there’s a lash extension length for everyone!
Classic lashes are thick, long extensions that help lengthen and darken the natural eyelash line. They are applied on a 1:1 basis, meaning one lash extension is applied to each natural eyelash, providing a subtle enhancement. For a more dramatic look, consider a lash style like a cat eye or doll eye, which uses different lengths to create a fuller appearance. These styles feature longer lashes in the center of the eyes and shorter lashes in the inner and outer corners. This gives the effect of more enormous eyes and a more defined look. You can also opt for a lash style with a varying curl, like a C or a J, to further enhance the shape of the eyes.
So many factors go into creating the perfect lash look for your clients. Among them, the curl type plays a significant role in how lashes are shaped and how they affect the eyes.
L and L+ curls are ideal for clients with hooded or monolid eyes, as they have a flat base that lifts the eyelash from the lash line. This helps them to appear less heavy, which can happen when using stronger-curling lash extensions on these clients.
In addition to this, a J curl is also suitable for hooded or monolid eyes. It has a subtle curve at the tip and blends well with lashes, opening up the appearance of the eye. For a dramatic effect, the D curl is an excellent option for hooded or monolid eyes, offering more visible lift than other curls. This is especially true when combined with longer lengths, which will add to the overall Volume of the lash set.
Eyelash extensions come in various lengths, thicknesses, and curls. This allows stylists to customize a look for each client.
Eyelashes add depth and fullness to your natural lash line. Each natural lash is isolated, and an extension is applied using a special lash glue. The result is a long-lasting, volumized, dramatic lash look.
For a natural, elongated appearance, your lash artist can map out a C or J-curl lash style with varying lengths to create a wide-eyed effect. You may also use a fan-shaped volume style with lighter extensions for a more textured look.
Regardless of eye shape, an adequately executed lash extension look enhances the beauty and appearance of the eyes. The resulting transformation is captivating, boosting confidence and leaving a lasting impression on others. To achieve your desired look, a detailed consultation is the first step. Be sure to select a lash technician with experience in eyelash extensions.
