State licensing requirement for the application of lash extensions vary from state to state, so it is incumbent upon you to research the requirement for your state and comply with any laws and requirements concerning the application of any lash extension products. Please be advised that since lash extensions are still relatively new to the U.S., you may not find a specific reference to “lash extensions” or “eyelash extensions” written in the codes. However some states may provide a definition that would include lash extensions, such as, “applying eyelashes to any person”.
Although state licensing requirements may vary, the use of lash extension products is for Professionals Only. As an expressed condition of any sale through Lavish Lashes®, you must submit proof of license as required by your state, or whereby licensing is not required you must submit proof of formal training.
Beauty industry professionals and authorized medical professionals interested in learning this exciting new technique are encouraged to apply.
Applying lash extensions requires you to have steady hands, keen vision, good depth perception, great attention to detail and patience . Also, since you will be isolating eyelashes with your non-dominant hand, it helps to have good dexterity.
The Lavish Lashes® kit comes with everything you need to get started. However, since applying lash extensions safely requires great precision, you may need to consider tools to enhance your vision such as a magnification visor, loupe, or reading classes. You will also need to evaluate the lighting in your work environment as it may be necessary to purchase additional overhead lighting or a lamp that reduces eye strain, through full spectrum lighting.
Your client will need to be fully reclined such as in an esthetician chair, or massage bed to best view your client’s lashes and apply lash extensions comfortably. You’ll need to place your lash extension supplies on a table stand or counter within arm’s reach. And a quite, soothing environment is best, as most clients will fall asleep during this relaxing procedure.
It is recommended that most lash removals be done with both you and your client sitting upright with the appropriate back and neck support. Doing so can prevent the highly viscous solution from accidentally entering the eye. For this reason, you will want to have an adjustable chair or stool with both back and head support for your client, and at least one other adjustable chair or stool for you.
No matter your experience as a beauty professional, Lavish Lashes® can help you develop the knowledge and skills you need to excel as a Lash Extension Specialist.
When you receive a certificate from Lavish Lashes® you’ll be recognized among the best in the industry.
Step 1: Choose and purchase either One-on-One training ($1695) or a Small Group Class ($695 per person) in “ Lash Extension Basic Technique & Safety”.
Classes are available at select cities nationwide. Onsite training is also available. You must successfully complete the course by demonstrating in class that you grasp the key concepts and can do the technique safely in order to receive your certificate.
Step 2: Choose and purchase either an Essentials Kit ($625) or a Pro-kit ($985). We do now carry a Starter Kit ($385) if that is all your budget allows. We recommend you practice on the false eyelash strip we put in the kit prior to your class. However unlike most of our competitors WE DO NOT REQUIRE YOU PURCHASE A KIT to take our certification workshop. You may in fact decide after taking your workshop that you prefer not to perform this beauty service. This option minimizes your investment spent that you cannot recover by not performing the service.
If you have 3 or more people interested in training, you may wish to consider on-site training at your location . The same steps apply as above, however instead of incurring the travel cost and potential hotel cost of 3 people, you will simply incur the transportation and hotel cost for one Certified Trainer, ($100-400). Please keep in mind that for safety reasons, the ideal training environment requires that our Trainer have the ability to be within close and direct view of each student during the hands-on training segment with the model. This requires the massage beds or esthetician chairs to be in the same room, otherwise different accommodations may need to be explored. For further details, please contact us at 1-888-708-1115.
Lavish Lashes® Professional Eyelash Extensions are for professional use only and must be applied by someone trained and certified in applying eyelash extensions. Before purchasing this service, make sure your eyelash extension professional is certified by Lavish Lashes® to ensure he or she received the highest level of quality training. Applying professional eyelash extensions to your own lashes is difficult and may result in discomfort or injury.
Lavish Lashes® Professional Eyelash Extensions are semi-permanent, lasting four to six weeks depending on the life cycle of your own natural lashes and other factors. Though the average cycle of a single lash is about 90 days, factors such as your eyelash characteristics, lifestyle, and general care of your lashes will affect how long your Lavish Lashes® last.
Lavish Lashes® Professional Eyelash Extensions are applied individually and when closely observed, appear to actually have a root. The lashes have a natural looking curve, so there is no need to use an eyelash curler. Eyelash Extensions come in various lengths, colors, and thicknesses to create a beautiful and natural look. Brilliant colors, such as blue and green, are very popular and help to accentuate the natural beauty and color of one’s natural eye color and lashes.
When professionally and properly applied, you cannot feel any difference after having your lashes enhanced with Lavish Lashes® Professional Eyelash Extensions. If you do feel a difference, your lashes were not properly applied, and you need to contact your professional.
