Provide Proof of a Professional License, Formal Training, or Credentials in the Beauty, Medical, or Dental Field. (If applicable in your State)
It is the policy of Lavish Lashes® to sell its products only to licensed and/or certified professionals in the beauty, medical, or dental industry. State licensing requirements for the application of lash extensions vary from state to state and are subject to change without notice. We stress that it is incumbent upon you to confirm whether or not you are allowed to perform lash extensions in your state.
Whereas some states do not require a license to practice certain beauty or body treatment disciplines, such as permanent make-up artistry, Lavish Lashes® may require that such individuals provide proof of formal certificate training or acceptable credentials within the beauty, medical, or dental fields as a pre-requisite to any Lavish Lashes® training and certification.
This being said, we understand that you may be an emerging entrepreneur who will make an excellent lash extension candidate and we do not want to discourage you from becoming trained and certified by Lavish Lashes®. However, this does not preclude the need to make a fully informed decision on your options and check your state’s requirements concerning applying lash extensions for a fee. You may choose to pursue training and certification prior to obtaining a cosmetology or esthetician’s license or vice versa.
For further information on this requirement, please direct your questions to email@example.com.
Purchase a Lavish Lashes® Product Kit
Unlike most of our competitors, we do not require that you purchase a kit prior to attending our certification workshop. Lavish Lashes® provides everything you need for your training class. This option minimizes your initial investment that cannot be recovered in the unlikely event that, after taking the class, you decide that performing this service isn’t for you. However, since we are certifying you on our products, a kit purchase, or the minimum equivalent in core supplies for a Starter Kit, is needed in order for you to receive your certification.
We provide three kit options for you to choose from: Essentials Kit ($625), Pro Kit ($985), and we also carry an affordable Starter Kit ($445). If you are currently enrolled as a cosmetology or esthetician student you may order an Enrolled Student Kit ($348.00). If you are a student at a partner school with Lavish Lashes, you will receive an additional 10% – 15% discount on your kits. Learn more about the Lavish Lashes® Partner School Program.
Successfully Complete Our One-day Basic Certification Course: Lash Extension Basic Technique and Safety
Successful completion of the course requires that you demonstrate comprehension of the key concepts and theory of lash extensions and that you can consistently perform the application technique in a safe manner. This means you will have to demonstrate that you can apply a specified number of eyelash extensions within a given timeframe with perfect technique in order to pass the course.
You are also responsible for providing a model at the training. We recommend a friend or family member, with healthy, dark colored and fairly straight eyelashes. If you are unable to provide your own model, a non-refundable fee for the model will apply (typically $75 per day but may vary).
While the basic, one-day workshop, Lash Extension Basic Technique and Safety is required for certification; it is strongly recommended that you also attend the one-day Advanced Comprehension Course, which typically follows the Basic Course. The Advanced course provides 5-7 hours hands-on time with your model and is typically smaller with only 2-3 students. Taking the two courses back-to-back as a two-day workshop offers the student many advantages in both in price and skill attainment.
