Which eyelash extensions to get?

The B curl is the most natural looking curl. There are several types of eyelash extensions, such as curl B, curl in C, curl in D and curl in L+. It is mainly suitable if you have straight eyelashes and need to lift them up a bit. In addition to being your best option to say goodbye to eyelash glue and self-made eyelashes, eyelash extensions are also popular because they are customizable.

You can get them in different materials, shapes, sizes, colors and curls. You can even get extensions for all or some of your eyelashes. Within these three categories (mink, silk and synthetic material), there are different degrees of length and curl to choose from. Typically, the eyelash artist will use various lengths and degrees of curvature to create a wide-open eye effect, with longer eyelashes in the outer corners of the eyes and shorter eyelashes in the inner corners.

The thickness, curl and length of the eyelashes used in an ensemble will depend on the desired style. There are three main types of eyelash extensions: synthetic, silk and mink. At Lash Perfect we only use high-quality synthetic lashes; our mink lashes are synthetic, ethical and hygienic and are called “mink” because of their soft texture. Each has its own benefits, and it can be difficult to decide what type of eyelash extension is best for you and your customers.

Silk eyelash extensions are not made with real silk, they are synthetic and use materials made from silk fiber. That's why it's necessary to consider all factors before using eyelash extensions to get the desired look. The result was great (I woke up with a strip full of eyelashes and went to work without putting on any makeup), but after a week I started to wake up with my pillowcase covered with eyelashes, extensions and my own natural eyelashes. For people with thick eyelashes, they probably don't need more than the classic eyelash extension.

You can maintain your eyelash extensions by doing regular retouching and filling, avoiding oil-based products and keeping eyelash tension away. In terms of volume, of course, the eyelash extension with volume will give you a more dramatic look and the hybrid could be something in between. Statistics from Grand View Research show that by 2025, the eyelash extensions industry will have a growth rate of around 5.2%. Their eyelash extension training courses include a classic two-day certification course for licensed cosmetologists and beauticians and a volume certification course.

This will also help the eyelash artist examine your eyelash extensions and rule out potential problems. That means you're discreet but still want to have a little bit of boldness in your eyes; use this type of eyelash extension. The hybrid is the combination of both types of eyelash extensions and can consist of a combination of 30% classic eyelashes and 70% volume. Place yourself at the opposite end of the eyelash spectrum with Mega Volume extensions, which offer 5 to 15 extensions per natural eyelash, perfect for those looking to cover spaces from eyelash damage.

There are many types of eyelash extensions and they can vary depending on the salon you choose to do them. All your eyelashes are at a different stage at any given time, which means that some of your eyelashes are about to fall out, while others are experiencing a growth period (this is true whether you have eyelash extensions or not).
