Different Types of Lash Bands
We have an unbeatable selection of fake lashes available to purchase. Our wide range of strip lashes varies in style and price range, offering a product to suit every individual’s needs.
False eyelashes come in every shape and with all textures covered. Every style is catered for, and within that, we have lash bands to suit every pair of falsies. Clear band eyelashes for those who want a natural style are extremely popular right now.
When it comes to selecting a pair of false lashes, it is essential to consider what is best for you. With so many different types of false lashes, knowing what you're looking for is important.
Lash bands are the main thing that affects the comfort and fit of your falsies, and there are many different lash bands to choose from, ranging in material and design, making it hugely important that you select one that is suitable for you.
Once you know what lash band you need, then it’s good to know what sort of falsies suit your eye shape. Read our blog and get all the up-to-date information and tip to make sure what you choose will suit you.
The lashes with clear bands or invisible lash bands are one of the most popular lash band inventions. These are completely clear in colour instead of black and therefore provide a much more undetectable look once applied.
Eyelashes with clear bands allow for a seamless blend between your natural lashes and the false lashes. We stock a variety of lash styles from top-selling lash brands that feature eyelashes with clear or invisible lash bands, but each is slightly different.
Here are some of our bestselling options:
Unicorn Lashes Crystal Collection
The Unicorn Lashes Crystal Collection was specifically designed with clear lash bands. Some of their most popular lash styles, such as Glow-Up and Vespertine, were revamped featuring this new band, and they also added several brand-new styles to this collection boasting an invisible band.
As the majority of Unicorn Lashes are dramatic, these clear bands are still quite thick, but they are completely clear in colour. These are a great choice for those that don’t want enhanced definition at the lash line, as thick black lash bands can often give the effect of eyeliner.
Why not check out all the Unicorn Lashes as unicorns are generally hard to find but once you’ve got your favourite invisible band lashes there is no going back.
Lilly Lashes Bandless Styles
Many of our Lilly Lashes styles are invisible band lashes or bandless, allowing you to achieve a full, fluffy look without needing a heavy lash band. The top-selling Lilly Lashes bandless styles are Arika and Delara, both ideal if you want to add glamour to your style and enhance your makeup.
Ardell Invisiband Lashes
Ardell offers a whole range of false eyelashes with invisible bands. These are extremely lightweight, flexible, and comfortable to wear, and they also provide the most natural finish.
Their popular styles, Wispies and Demi Wispies both feature ‘invisibands’ and are, therefore a great option for beginners as they are fairly natural-looking and extremely easy to apply.
¾ Lash Bands
Ideal for those that don’t require a full strip lash style, or those that love a natural lash look, ¾ bands are a fabulous alternative to standard strip lashes.
Otherwise, known as ‘accent lashes’ ¾ bands are designed to offer just a little extra length and volume, focused on each outer edge of your eyes.
These lashes tend to be a lot easier to apply, and they are also a top choice for if you’re new to wearing false lashes, as they are subtle yet effective.
We offer a range of different accent lashes from top brands such as Eylure, Ardell and we also carry the Fleur De Force range which consists of two stunning pairs of accent lashes.
We recommend applying one coat of mascara to your natural lashes prior to applying accent lashes, to ensure the best results and a seamless blend.
Glitter Lash Bands
As well as the different lash band materials we offer, lash bands have been specially created to add something extra special to your look.
From sparkly invisible eyelash bands to glitter designs, there is a range of stunning styles on our site that have unique lash bands that look amazing once applied.
The Eylure Couture lashes in style Bedazzle feature a silver glitter line along the lash band, and the Eylure Bedazzle lashes boast small, diamonte gems spaced out along the band, making both pairs perfect for completing a dramatic yet tasteful look.
Thick Lash Bands
Many synthetic strip lash styles feature a wider, more thick, black lash band that is made from the same material as the lashes.
These are often on more dramatic styles with heavier volume, and although they are thick they are still very flexible and easy to apply.
If you are a beginner and haven’t got much experience with false lashes, then lashes with thicker bands probably aren’t the best lash to try first.
Brands such as House of Lashes and Violet Voss boast really dark lash bands that are perfect for adding enhanced definition at the lash line, and they also complete a heavy makeup look really well.
Pre Glued Lash Bands
Pre Glued or ‘self-adhesive’ lash styles boast a lash band that already has adhesive applied to it, meaning they are quick and easy to apply and don’t require lash glue.
Pre Glued lash bands are very durable and fairly thick to ensure they remain in good condition in their packaging before you apply them. Pre Glued bands come in several styles, including clear band eyelashes and invisible band false eyelashes.
Pre Glued lashes can’t be reused, but as they don’t need adhesive, they are really convenient for those that wear false lashes every day and are looking to speed up their routine.
Some of our bestselling lashes are available with Pre Glued bands, such as the well-loved Ardell Demi Wispies, and the Eylure Texture 117.
Magnetic Lash Bands
One of the latest additions to the world of false eyelashes, is the innovative magnetic lashes. Designed with magnets spaced out along a fine, lightweight lash band, magnetic lashes offer an incredibly quick and effortless application.
Ardell provides a selection of different magnetic lash styles, such as the iconic Demi Wispies, as well as some accent lash styles.
Magnetic lashes are ideal if you suffer from any adhesive allergies, or find standard strip lashes difficult to apply.
They are also easier to reuse as no adhesive is required, meaning the lashes remain in top condition, and you are guaranteed to get more wear out of each pair. For tips on applying magnetic lashes, read our post about them here.
