All About the Different Eyelash Extension Styles

When it comes to getting lash extensions, there are a few different styles you can request from your lash technician. Learn more about each eyelash style and decide which one is right for you!

Natural Extension Style

This extension style is the best choice for you if you want your lashes to appear as natural as possible. It gives you longer extension lengths on the midsection of your eyes and shorter ones on the corners, following the contours of your natural eyelash pattern. Thus, the falsies will be unnoticeable because they look real and organic.

Cat Eye Extension Style

The cat eye lash extension style is similar to the cat eyeliner makeup style. It features an extended wing at your outer eye corners with the longest extensions. Then, they gradually decrease length as the extensions move toward the inner corners of your eyes, giving a more feminine and dramatic look.

People with round eyes turn to this eyelash technique because it easily creates an elongated effect that evens out your eye symmetry. Furthermore, it makes your eyes look bigger and brighter.

Cluster Extension Style

This lash extension style is made up of lash strand fans, which are glued together with a thick base. Each eyelash cluster is then glued together along your lash line, giving your eyes a dramatic and heavy look. This gives you some volume lashes that are divided into clusters. Thus, it doesn’t make your eyes look heavy.

Open Eye Extension Style

The open eye extension style makes your eyes look bigger and more open by making the center of your eyelids an important focal point. This adds volume and length to that part of your lash line and tapers down on both corners to create eyelash symmetry. It’s a great style to accentuate the center of your eyes. 

Doll Extension Style

This eyelash extension style replicates the prominent, striking appearance of a doll’s eyes. It mixes the natural and open eye lash styles, spreading long lashes on the midsection of your eyes. This puts more volume on your eye center, making your eyes look fuller and more open. That’s why it’s the best lash style for people with wide-set or downturned eyes.

Squirrel Extension Style

The squirrel eyelash style is popular for giving a stylish, dramatic look. It features the longest extensions under the eyebrow arch. Thus, the eyelash volume is more concentrated from the center to the outer eye corners, creating a squirrel ear-like appearance. This eyelash extension technique is a go-to for a more prominent, striking look.

Choosing the Best Lash Styles for Your Eye Shape

You should know all the factors to consider so that you can choose the most suitable lash extension for you. Here are some expert tips on choosing lash styles that compliment some of the most common eye shapes.

Lash Styles for Round Eyes

The creases beneath your eyes stand out more than any other feature when you have prominently round eyes. So you want to be careful when selecting extensions because not all styles work well with this area of skin on your face. For instance, some styles can make your eyes look bigger but result in a constantly surprised expression.

For best results, put long, curled eyelash extensions at your outer eye corners and shorter ones in the inner eye corners. By mixing both lash lengths and placing them in the right areas of your eyes, you can create an elongated effect that enhances your eyes’ appearance. However, take note that you shouldn’t put too much eyelash volume on your eyes because it will make them look heavier.

Lash Styles for Almond-Shaped Eyes

All areas of your eyes are symmetrical when you have almond-shaped eyes, meaning your eye width is longer than your eye height. Furthermore, your eyelid creases are perfectly visible and can complement any lash style. Thus, there are various options for you to choose from because of your versatile eye shape.

One highly recommended technique for this eye shape is placing the longer lashes in your middle lash line area and the shorter ones in the corners of your eyes. This will help emphasize the center of your eyes and balance your eye corners. That being said, you should avoid putting too much volume on your eye corners to prevent weighing down your natural eye shape.

Lash Styles for Hooded Eyes

If you have hooded eyes and a heavy brow bone structure, your upper lash line appears to be swallowed by your eyelids. This feature of hooded eyes makes them look smaller, but their creases help balance them out for easier styling.

The perfect trick into making a lash lift effect is emphasizing the middle area of your eyes. You can highlight this part by placing longer and loose curled extension strands in your middle eye area. The B curl or C curl is perfect for this eye shape. They will help put attention to your lash lines and create the illusion of bigger eyes.

Lash Styles for Monolid Eyes

The lash lines become an important focal point when you have hidden eyelids. With this complex eye shape, creating creases to lessen the flat appearance of your eyes is very important.

You should opt for styles with multiple layers to create volume around your eye edges. Additionally, you must place long lashes on the center until the outer section of your eyes. Doing this will make your eyes look bigger by opening your eyes more and making your lash lines look lighter.
