B-curl lash extensions are for those individuals who want something that is in between the two. They are considered the second most natural eyelash extensions after the J-curl lash extensions. They add a considerable length and volume but not curls.

3. C-Curl Lash Extensions
C-curl lash extensions are the most popular type of lash extension preferred by clients. They have a straight and short base with a natural curl at the tip of the lash extension. This type of lash extension matches the natural lash curls of a lot of people. They also compliment all eye shapes ranging from the hooded, round, almond, down-turned, and up-turned.
Be sure to have a look similar to the one you get when your natural eyelashes are curled by an eyelash curler. C-curl lash extensions are mostly used by clients who would like to achieve a natural look. This type of lash extension is beautiful but it will not open up your eyes so much. They may not be the best alternative for individuals with small and closed eyes.
4. CC-Curl Lash Extensions

They are less curled than the d-curl lash extensions. cc-curl lashes are mainly used during volume application.
If you or your client is looking for something to open up their eyes, then cc-curl lashes are the best choice. They will give you a more noticeable and glaring look. Consider using cc-curl lashes that face downward to give your client a fresh and relaxed look. Apply them to clients who would wish to turn up the volume of their lashes.
5. D-Curl Lash Extensions
They are similar to the c-curl lash extensions, only that they are curlier at their tip. They are effective for individuals who have down-angled natural eyelashes and they need an attractive and noticeable look. This type of extension will widen and brighten your client’s eyes, they create a dramatic effect on the user. Some people refer to this kind of lash extension as the cc-curl lashes, there is no big difference between the two.
D-curl lash extensions are ideal for clients with downward-pointing natural eyelashes because they will end up opening them. Avoid using this type of lash extension on eyes that are hooded, deep-set, and droopy because of how tight the curls are. The lash curls may end up brushing against the upper eyelid and cause irritation.
6. L-Curl Lash Extensions
As their name suggests, these types of lash extensions are L-shaped. They are basically c or d curl lash extensions that have a flat base. The flat base provides a good attachment between the natural eyelash and the lash extensions, this creates a secure and lasting effect. The curled part of this type of lash extension lifts up the natural lashes that are facing down making the eyes open up naturally.

They are also perfect for older people and those whose eyelids are hooded and droopy. L-curl lash extensions are the best for providing visual satisfaction.
7. LC-curl Lash Extensions
This type of lash extension has a straight base similar to l-curl lash extensions but they are curled like the c-curl at their tip. The flat base and special curve from the middle part of the lc curl lash extensions give clients a beautiful look, and at the same time opens up their eyes.
They are perfect for clients with arrow straight and down-facing natural eyelashes. Lc curls are well known for creating a natural-looking length and dramatic effect. Opt for this type of lash curls if you aim at creating any volume look. They provide different volumes of lashes ranging from the barely-there lash look to mega volume lashes.

Individuals with lashes that are naturally flat look perfect in them. They also suit clients with down-growing natural lashes.
