If there’s one lash trend dominating 2024, it’s the fabulous wave of L curl eyelash extensions! 🌟 Unlike your typical lash extensions, the L curl doesn’t follow the usual straight or curved path. Instead, the unique L shape opens up your eyes, making them look wide awake—perfect for those “late to work” mornings we all know too well. 😴
So, if you need a little nudge to add L curl eyelash extensions to your service menu, here’s the lowdown, complete with all the deets you’ll want to know.
What Makes L Curl Eyelash Extensions So Special?
The magic behind L curl lashes lies in their flat sit on the natural lash, pointing up at a 90-degree angle like a sleek “L”. This transforms your eye shape, giving you that feline/foxy look.
By creating a lifted and open appearance, L curl lashes enhance the natural shape of your eyes, making them look bigger and giving your whole face that snatched appearance. So, instead of a run-of-the-mill eyelash set, you’ll get a baby facelift. 😻💁♀️
L curl eyelash extensions were crafted to mimic the natural lash shape, making them perfect for those who want a more natural look without sacrificing the exotic eyeliner-like effect.
They seamlessly blend with your natural lashes and are easy to combine with other curl types. Ideal for adding on the outer corners, L curl lashes provide that instant lift to any look.
Who Are They Suited For?
While our obsession with L curl lashes knows no bounds, not everybody will be a perfect match. No matter how good they may look on somebody, there are still some eye shapes that should stick to the classic C or D curl.
However, don’t be fooled. Adding this highly sought-after service to your menu will still undoubtedly attract a bunch of new clients to your salon.
L curl lashes shine brightest on clients with deep or droopy eyes, offering a fresh and wide-awake look while maintaining a soft and natural appearance. Next up are clients with round eyes aiming for that foxy and snatched look. Last but not least, L curl is ideal for monolid or lined eyes, adding drama without overwhelming heaviness.
For clients with super elongated eyes, a full set of L-curl lashes might be a bit much. Instead, offer them a hybrid set, applying L curls only to the outer corners of the eyes.
And it’s not just about eye shape—L curl lashes could be the ideal solution for clients with extremely straight or downward-pointing natural eyelashes, giving them a lifted and curled transformation.
