Have you ever heard of hooded eyes? If you are in the eyelash extension industry, you probably have, and it is our responsibility to figure out what kind of lashes would suit our clients the best if they do have this eye shape.
In previous blog articles, we have explained the different types of possible eye shapes and what style would best suit your client. In this article, we will go over what curl and length we suggest would suit your client with this specific eye shape.
First off, do you know what hooded eyes are and what they look like? People who have hooded eyelids have excess skin under their eyebrows, which can make it look like a small flap. The lash line can disappear under the lid depending on the size of the hood, causing the lashes to be tucked under and the bases to be practically hidden. This gives the eyes the illusion of being smaller than what they truly are. This is very similar to having monolid eyes. Women who are a bit more mature also tend to get hooded eye shapes as well.
First of all, it is important to consider the client’s natural eyelashes. It is important to measure their natural lashes and to take a look at their natural eyelash curls. Something to note is that when a client shows you a picture of what she wants her lash set to look like, we need to let the client know that depending on the number of natural lashes will affect how full their set will be. This will help avoid any disappointment for your client and keep things realistic.
