Although there are now numerous companies where you can acquire eyelash extension products, your choices for purchasing the right training are very limited. The formula to be successful with eyelash extensions is easy:
Know what to expect
The term “eyelash extension” refers to both a product and the procedure of applying eyelash extensions. Eyelash extensions are individual synthetic or natural fibers manufactured to look like a single natural eyelash. Made for professional use only, eyelash extensions come in various colors, lengths, curls, and thicknesses and are packaged as loose lashes or fixed upright on a lash card.
Eyelash extensions should not be confused with strip lashes, magnetic lashes or cluster lashes. Eyelash extensions refer to the procedure where a trained professional applies a single eyelash extension or multiple thin eyelash extensions to a person’s single natural eyelash. With the use of a cyanoacrylate-based adhesive, the extensions are applied with precision such that they do not touch the skin or stick to other eyelashes. A cyanoacrylate-based adhesive (a form of instant bonding cosmetic super glue) is used so that the eyelash extension adheres for the duration of the natural lash’s life cycle. Properly applied, eyelash extensions can remain attached until the natural eyelash sheds. They can transform the shape of a client’s lash line and add more thickness, curl, length and/or color, while feeling virtually weightless.
Eyelash extensions are applied by an certified technician trained in the art of eyelash extension application. The application process starts with selecting lashes to match the client's desired look, then the technician cleans and preps the natural lashes and applies a medical-grade adhesive to each individual synthetic lash before attaching it to one of the client's own individual natural eyelashes. With careful attention and precision, the technician will apply multiple lash extensions along each row of eyelashes, with each synthetic lash being adhered one at a time until reaching the desired fullness.
The entire procedure takes about 1-2.5 hours depending on how many lashes are desired.
The application of eyelash extensions requires both professionalism and safety, as it is a delicate procedure. Professionalism is important to ensure that the service meets the customer's expectations in terms of look, quality and longevity. Safety should be taken into consideration to avoid any irritation or infection on the eye area from improper procedure, wrong product or unclean tools and environment. Professionals are trained and certified to use specific tools and products correctly to provide a safe procedure that yields optimal results. Taking safety and professionalism seriously during eyelash extensions services will help protect customer's eyes healthy while ensuring they get their desired results.
Assess your physical abilities
Due to the inherent risks associated when working around the eyes, safely applying eyelash extensions requires you to meet the following physical requirements:
We highly recommend having your vision checked by a professional for acuity and depth perception before taking a class and applying eyelash extensions. Please keep in mind that using magnification devices can distort your depth perception, and it is possible that it may not compensate for lacking keen vision.
Most people are not accustomed to simultaneously manipulating sharp objects (like the tweezers used for applying eyelash extensions) with both hands. You will need to train your hands to maintain good control at all times to apply eyelash extensions safely.
Spatial ability is a cognitive skill and the innate ability to interpret and visualize the spatial relationship of one object to another. You need to be able to perceive and visualize the various angles you can pick up and attach the eyelash extensions to achieve precise attachments that are flattering and appropriate. The exemplary Lavish Lashes® training course will provide you with the theory and technical training needed to perform the intricate eyelash extensions application process. Still, you also have to have spatial ability.
Good candidates for learning the lash extensions procedure should possess the physical requirements above, as well as patience, great attention to detail, and a commitment to practicing.
Your certification must be earned
Earning your certification should be something to strive for! It's not about just "showing up" or finishing an online course - it takes a bit more than that. To prove you have what it takes, demonstrate that you can execute the application technique by applying a certain number of eyelash extensions within a specified time with the perfect technique.
Before being awarded certification from Lavish Lashes, you must demonstrate comprehensive understanding of the essential concepts. This can include topics such as safety practices and techniques, proper product use and application, design principles, contraindications, aftercare and more. Successfully completing the coursework is only the beginning - applicants must be able to clearly demonstrate comprehension of all subject areas in order to be certified. Furthermore, they must also pass a verbal evaluation in order to receive their certification - ensuring that each professional has sufficient knowledge and skills before treating clients.
