I'm working on stylized eyelashes for a character sculpt, and I'd like to make a sharp turn at this point.

The curve that I'm attempting to add a sharp turn to.

I believe it's a NURBS curve. The path was created with Shift + A > Curve > Path. I hit v and set the handle type to Free, but I don't see any handles.

I've tried setting the spline type to Bezier, but the results weren't pretty and the handles don't appear to do anything.

After setting the spline type to Bezier.

Where are the handles on my NURBS curve?

    $\begingroup$ If I'm understanding you correctly, NURBS curves do not have handles (only beziers have handles.) Instead, the curvature of NURBS curves is adjusted by adjusting each control's "W" component, which I access on sidebar/item/transform. $\endgroup$
