This 2 Day Beginners course is like no other out there and, if you want to be the best, you have to take the best training available.

The art of eyelash extensions is an intricate skill, working on the delicate eye area while using extremely sharp tweezers and strong glues.

To learn and perfect this technique not only takes hours of practice, but also experience within the industry and only by learning the correct techniques, with the most up-to-date training, can this be achieved. Sadly there is a lot of out-dated training techniques still being taught, using poor quality products with a high risk of detrimental effects.

Failure to teach the technical elements and skills required to become both successful and safe, will lead to demoralised students that must frequently reinvest their money into retraining.

Training with Eyelash Excellence, your course is specifically designed to provide you with all practical techniques, along with technical skills, hints, tips, advice and guidance that will equip you to become a talented and successful technician. Most of this information cannot be found on any other course.
In addition to this, every student receives unlimited and on-going support and guidance with all aspects of their career – again, this is simply not available elsewhere!

Frankie Lash Trainer

Far too often I see students that were attracted by cheap beginners courses, or suddenly found there were additional hidden costs that were not stated at the time. Please research your course and your trainer. Ensure that training is either one-to-one, or that class sizes are kept small.

Cheap courses are usually cheap for a reason – if you wish to excel in this industry then you must invest into good training. The UK has some amazing Lash Trainers, however for every good trainer, there are 10 bad ones.

Train poor, train twice – so be prepared to invest into your future!

Assessment

Students are required to practice and perfect their lashing techniques on live models after the course. Students must provide 4 case studies to evidence their work before they become certified. Any student that does not meet the required standard will be invited back for a free refresher day. Students that pass their case studies will be sent out their Eyelash Excellence certificate, this can then be provided to your chosen insurance company.

Case studies

(photographic evidence of work)

Photos must be clear and unedited and be taken both before and after eyelash extensions have been applied.

Photos to be taken from the following angles:

  • The front
  • The side
  • From behind the client.

Please email these one by one, stating the case study number to info@eyelashexcellence.com and explain the following: length, curl and thickness used and why, as well as the lash map used.

Each case study will be assessed against the required standard. Students that pass their case studies will then be issued with their certification, this will then allow you to apply for insurance (a legal beauty requirement within the UK).
