Full Answer

Eyelash extension training consists of understanding various eye shapes and learning what thickness and length works well with each of them. During the training, students learn about client safety, picking up the lashes, using the correct amount of adhesive, separating the lashes and finally how to apply the lashes. They also learn about proper hygiene and how to teach clients to keep their lashes clean. Trainees learn how to remove the adhesive in a manner that doesn't harm the natural lashes as well.

Once students learn and have demonstrated the proper technique for applying and removing eyelash extensions, instructors teach them about marketing themselves and their products. They also learn how to teach their clients how to take care of their lashes at home so that they last longer and which products to encourage their clients to use. Once students are finished with the course, they take a test to become certified.
