A two-day foundational class, classic lashes will begin with where the idea for eyelash extensions originated with the history of eyelash extensions. We’ll then move onto the importance of sanitation in your eyelash studio, as you can transmit eye conditions such as pink eye to other clients. We’ll go over how to sterilize your equipment properly after each client. We’ll review some tips and tricks on how to set up your workspace station. Then, we’ll get into the technical aspects of how your eyelashes grow and how to keep them healthy. This is important to avoid breakage when applying and removing, as too many breakages can affect the overall look of your client’s eyelashes.

Since applying eyelashes is such a small-detailed process, involving tiny instruments, it’s important that you take care of yourself. We’ll go over the proper posture as well as hand position so you don’t develop any unnecessary pain. If you don’t take care of yourself, you won’t last long in the eyelash extension business. This is one of the most important parts of our class as technique is everything.

Speaking of technique, we’ll next move into the application of eyelash extensions itself. This is where your inner artist shines because, as we all know, different types of eyelashes look better on some people than on others. This is another important part of the eyelash extension process, as everyone wants a customized approach to their look. We’ll review basic styling and mapping as well. Tips will be helpful here for maximizing the retention of the eyelashes, as they do fall off from every day wear.
