Pinkfishes Lash Curls Explained…
In this blog we will cover the many different lash curls available in the industry, when and what eye shapes to use each curl on, combining lash curls for different looks and what lashes you should stock as a Lash Technician.
What Different Lash Curls are there?
At Pinkfishes we stock a variety of curls to suit different lash techs needs, including the following curls: J, B, C, CC, D, U & M curls (In order from least curly, J, to most curly, M).
There are also many other curls available that you may or may not be familiar with, such as: I, JC, C+, DD, D+, L, L, LC, LD Curl and more!
We know sometimes it might be a little overwhelming looking for the right curls to stock in your salon, so we are here to help you figure out which are the best to stock and the most popular curls.
Being a Lash Artist you always want to be able to offer everything that your clients desire, however when building up your range of lashes there are SO many curls, colours, thicknesses and lengths to choose from, that it would be near impossible to stock every type of lash.
In this section we will look at all the different lashes Pinkfishes offers, why and when you should use them and their differences.
Below you can see all of the curls we offer at Pinkfishes and how each curl sits when placed upon the natural lash.

J Curl Lash Extensions:
B Curl Lash Extensions:
What is a B Curl Lash Extension: B curls are just slightly more curly than a J curl, but are still very natural and will give a subtle curl.
When would you use a B Curl: B curls will be suitable for most eye shapes and should be used on clients that are looking for something that will gently enhance their natural lashes. Similar to J curls, B curls would be good to use on clients with Almond eyes that also have naturally straight lashes or slightly curly natural lashes. B curls are great to use on the inner corners of the eyes and for bottom lashes.
What B Curls do we stock at Pinkfishes: At Pinkfishes we stock B curls in 0.25, 0.20, 0.15 & 0.10 thicknesses in mixed length trays, and 0.07 & 0.05 thickness in individual length trays ranging from 7mm - 15mm & mixed trays.
