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
Eyelash extensions should not be confused with strip lashes, magnetic lashes or cluster lashes. Eyelash extensions are single or multiple thin extensions that are applied to a person's natural lashes by a certified lash professional to provide extra length, thickness, curl, or even color, enhancing the overall look of the eyes.
Certified lash professionals use a medical-grade adhesive to apply individual synthetic lashes to each natural eyelash hair only. Extensions do NOT touch the skin and are NOT glued to any other lash.
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. 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 of the eye area from improper procedure, wrong product, or unclean tools and environment. These important key concepts will help protect customers' eyes while ensuring they get their desired results.
Assess Your Physical Abilities
There are risks naturally taken when working around the eyes. In order to safely apply eyelash extensions, you should 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.
Skill Observation & Assessment
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.
If you weren't successful with your first lash attempt, don't worry! It is not as easy as it looks. Lavish Lashes is here to provide you with the support you need. We provide a complimentary refresher course so that you can be successful in achieving your certification. Our experienced professional will take you step-by-step through the process and make sure that you've comprehended the skills necessary to pass your certification.
Steps to Certification
