C curl creates attractive lashes as if they were permed, and it is the most commonly used curl.The standard curl used by most lash techs is the ‘C’ curl. It’s perfect for those men and women with average curls because it helps to open up the eyes and make the client look alert, bright, energetic.

For those with downward or heavy downward lashes, it can give a lifted look to your natural lashes. But if you have a client with straight eyelashes, it’s perfect for opening up the eyes. You’ll find that the degree is 60 with a ‘C’ curl.

For those also with lashes that curve horizontally, this type of lash extension curl can create the doll eye look. If your client has lashes that face downward, go for a D curl.

CC curl is our perfect in between curl, giving you slightly more than C curl but slightly less than D curl.While some people say CC curl is the same as D curl, it’s a unique style that offers a good curl that’s not as curled as D, but higher than C. As C curl is closest to natural lashes, CC is a good way to slightly accent those with naturally curly lashes like teenagers. It’s the best way to add volume to natural lashes that are curled on their own. Lash techs might find these lashes at a 65-degree angle.

CC Curl helps to open up the eyes of those who have naturally downward-facing lashes. When you set it properly, such a curl can help you create the doll eye look for lashes that are straight. However, this style isn’t great for upward-facing lashes.

D curl is used to create doll-like lashes for special occasions or those who want more drama.Curlier than CC and less curly than ‘U’, the ‘D’ curl is one Lifted. Creates the open-eye effect for the downward lash. These curls are often used for the dramatic style of eyes. D curl is best for doll eyes, especially if your client has straight lashes. Here you will see a 70-degree angle.

Although they don’t work so well for upward lashes, D curl is a great starter. It widens most eyes and enhances the shape of your client’s eyes. This is especially good for clients with small eyes who want to widen and brighten them.
