 If you’re trying to choose between C curl vs. D curl lash extensions, try combining both together! Many clients absolutely adore the dynamic hybrid look you get from mixing C and D curl lashes. 

Once you feel comfortable performing standard lash treatments, it’s definitely okay to start branching out by blending various curls, as well as thicknesses and lengths. Create new looks that keep your clients coming back again and again!

Understanding the Difference

Before you start offering hybrid lash extension services, it’s important that you’re confident in your knowledge of the different types of lashes. Once you understand how they work individually, you can blend them like a pro! Let’s take a look at the differences between C curl vs. D curl lashes.

C Curls: Cool and Casual

C curls tend to be the most popular option. They make the eyes pop without being too dramatic. They create a lifted look that really helps the client’s eyes look more open. C curls deliver a look that’s actually quite similar to natural lashes that have been curled with a lash curler. It’s perfect for clients who want to add some visual excitement to their eyes while still keeping it on the subtle side.

D Curls: Daring and Dramatic

D for Drama! D curls offer more of a full, statement-making look. The lash extensions have a strong curl that points right at the client’s eyebrows. If your client is having a tough time deciding between C curl vs. D curl lashes, blending them is a great way to deliver the best of both worlds. That said, D curls look fabulous on their own, but only if the client really wants lots of fun, fluttery, doll-like drama.

Now that you understand the differences between the two styles, you can see why mixing C and D curl lashes is such a popular technique! Many clients want something that pops a bit more than natural, curled lashes, but they’re not quite ready to go all-in with dramatic D curls.
