Types of Eyelash Extensions
There are a number of different eyelash extensions on the market. These include regular synthetic, silk and mink and 100% Siberian Mink and human hair.
At BeautifEyes, we use only a faux mink. For my own personal ethical reasons, I choose not to use mink from the animal. Checkout my Homepage for more faux mink eyelash extensions information.
Lashes also come in different curls and thicknesses.
J curl – there is not much curl to this at all.
B curl – a little more curl than a J
C curl – the most popular by far
D curl – for a more dramatic curl towards the eyebrows. Looks fantastic on those with dark skin and also those with deep inset eyes.
I carry the following sizes
Lengths from 8mm to 13mm.
Different types of sets.
CLASSIC eyelash extensions
This is 1 extension to 1 natural lash, example 1:1
A natural set will have up to 80 lashes across both eyes spread evenly across the eyes. This is also for those who simply don’t have many lashes.
A full set has on average 110+ lashes per eye! basically we fill em’ up.
RUSSIAN Volume extensions
This is multiple extensions per natural lash. This ranges from 2D to 6D and even 9D now.
For a simple 2D set, I tend to use a 0.10, so 2 extensions per natural lash, this is fantastic for those with such sparse lashes that a classic set just is not enough. I would use a 0.07 for those whose lashes are too fine for the 0.10.
For 3D, 4D, 5D, I would use a 0.07.
And for volume for 6D to 9D it would be wise to use a 0.05.
