Welcome to the most advanced Online Russian Volume Eyelash Extension Course, designed to impart the art of creating flawless handmade fans. Anything less than perfection is simply not acceptable!
I'm Frankie Widdows, a renowned lash expert specialising in all areas of Eyelash Extensions. I have been a lash artist since 2012 and in that time have travelled the globe training thousands of students in my advanced lash techniques, judging at the global lash competitions and speaking at the biggest lash events.
I was one of the first lash artist's in the UK to master the Russian Volume technique when it was first invented in Russia back in 2012/2013. I originally trained under the esteemed Nadia Afanaseva in New York, and from there honed my Russian Volume skills in the pursuit of perfection, qualities I instil in my students.
This course is recommended for lash artists with a minimum of 12 months of classic lashing experience. While prior experience is preferred, confidence and proficiency in classic lashes, along with a strong grasp of fundamental lash techniques, are prerequisites. If you can create a classic set in 2 hours or less and have a good understanding of lash mapping, eye shapes, and isolation, you're ready to delve into the advanced world of Russian Volume.
Why Choose This Course:
- High-end Russian Volume taught by a true expert.
- No messy or imperfect volume fans; only "Frankie approved perfect fans" are allowed.
- Focus on precision, volume fan creation and application.
- Learning made easy and fun.
- Continued aftercare support.

THE NO 1 LASH MAPPING & EYE STYLING ONLINE COURSE
This course is for those that are already trained in Eyelash Extensions and would like to improve their knowledge of Lash Mapping & Eye Styling. I recommend that students have at least 6 months lash experience under their belt so that they already possess the basic skills of performing the treatment of eyelash extensions.
This Lash Mapping and Eye Styling Online Course is accredited and insured by ABT, the UKs largest beauty and insurance membership provider, as well as insured and accredited by Insync and recognised by the IICT. Please check the regulations provided for your own State/Country to check that our courses are recognised.
This course content is brand new for 2023. You will be taught the most up to date and advanced Lash Mapping and Eye Styling techniques. Taught by myself, Frankie Widdows, Master Lash Artist, Lash Trainer, Speaker and Top lash judge at the World’s largest lash events.
Why should you train with Frankie Widdows from Eyelash Excellence?
Please let me introduce myself and explain why I am the best when it comes to the subject of Lash Mapping & Eye Styling. I am an Award-winning lash expert, specialising solely in eyelash extensions. I have been a lash artist since 2012 and in this time, I feel like I have built up an impressive reputation and resumé in the lash world. As an award winning top judge at the world’s largest lash events, I really know my stuff when it comes to the subject of Lash Mapping & Eye Styling. I have studied this subject in depth over the past 11 years and not to blow my own trumpet, my passion and dedication to this advanced subject means that if you want to learn the high end, competition standard of precise lash mapping & styling, then you will be hard pushed to find someone that understands and can teach this subject the way I do.
In addition to the above, I have over the years, travelled the world teaching my lash techniques to thousands of students across the globe. Not only do I run my own international eyelash extensions courses, but also get invited by salon owners to offer my trainings to lash artists who want me to teach them my high-end knowledge of all things lashes.
Not only can I teach this subject to high level, but I can also execute my high-end techniques on my own clients. Very early on in my career, I understood the importance of being able to style my clients correctly, something that other lash artists seemed unable to do: instead applying the “one look suits all on every client”. My expertise in this subject soon got me noticed, leading to a full client base and long waiting list of clients wanting to be lashed by me.
My niche also became working with mature clients, who require very intricate lash styling to correct mature features of the face. Sadly, most lash artists fail to realise the importance of understanding the facial features of a person (especially mature clients) therefore would lash them incorrectly resulting in sets of lashes applied to mature clients that were too overbearing for their ageing features.
See below for some of my work on a variety of different clients:
Ask yourself this, how often to you get the opportunity to train with a real Lash Mapping & Eye Styling expert like me who has travelled the world teaching my techniques as well as judging the best lash artists across the globe? The simple fact is, that many lash trainers do not and cannot teach what I do due to their restricted knowledge and lack of practical experience of this subject. I live sleep and breath eyelash extensions, ask me any question on any subject or lash technique and I can answer or teach it.
Of course, there are lots of other great lash trainers out there, however unless you are an expert in the subject of Lash Mapping & Eye Styling, then it is impossible to understand this subject in the depth that I do and be able to teach your students to top level.
How does this Lash Mapping & Eye Styling Online lash courses work?
This course is 100% theory based, why?.... because when it comes to the subject of Lash Mapping & Eye Styling, this subject is endless. It is not possible to teach this subject using real models, as we would need hundreds of them to demonstrate how each technique works and your course would never end. However, all of the content in this course is visual, this is how we teach this subject so that you can understand all the technical elements of working on every different type of client you will ever meet. Once you learn and understand the concepts, you can then apply them to your real-life clients.
All the content is pre-recorded, this means you can access whenever you want and don’t have to be free at “set times” to join live webinars etc. When you purchase the course, it will automatically be added to your Eyelash Excellence account.

This is a digital certificate that we email you, however students can request a hard copy at an additional cost and postage fees.
What if I choose not to gain certification?
That is completely up to you as I appreciate that not all students will choose the case study option. However, in your downloads section you will find an editable certificate of completion, which you can print at home and display.

Yes, all students receive lifetime 15% off Eyelash Excellence products as well as 25% off my other online eyelash courses. Your student discount code can be found in your course content.
Is your Online Lash Mapping & Eye Styling Course fun?
I really hope so. I always try to make learning fun for my students: if we can enjoy the journey then learning is easy. I do not class myself as an academic, I am much more hands on practical and therefore structure my courses in this way so that anyone of any ability can learn.
I am a bit unsure whether to invest in this course, can I see examples of your work, your teaching, reviews etc.?
I understand, it is a big decision to invest in one of my courses, especially when there are so many other trainers and online courses to choose from and probably at a fraction of the cost. But please remember, you get what you pay for and sadly our industry is now saturated with so many “quickly put together” online courses which are just terrible.
You can see more of what I get up to on my Instagram channel @eyelashexcellence as well as on my YouTube which can be found here. Bear in mind I do have some very old videos on there, which are poor film quality/old school techniques, but I leave them live due to the great feedback on them. I do have some more fab new high-quality videos coming soon so stay tuned.

Also don’t forget to check out some of my student reviews at the bottom of this page.
If you do choose to shop around here for another Lash Mapping & Eye Styling course, here are some top tips to assist you:
Research the company, are they lash experts or an academy that offers lots of online courses? Sadly, you will tend to find that “overall academies” teach only the very basics because it is very rare to be a specialist at multiple subjects due to the time it takes to learn your craft in detail as well as stay up to date.
Who is the Trainer/course developer: are they a lash expert? Again, find out who has developed or taught the content. Anyone these days can design an online course so do your research. Google that lash artist, what are their qualifications, have they won awards, do they judge, share their knowledge, can you find examples of their own lash work or see their teaching style on YouTube etc. Really go to town and find out all you can about them.
Price… avoid cheap courses, they are cheap for a reason. I know we all love a bargain but remember if it seems too good to be true it probably is. Good trainers do not sell their knowledge for cheap, Trainers like me have invested years into learning this subject. I have spent thousands of pounds on my own education, travelling the world to take training with the best lash artists there are so I can be the best and teach my students to be the best. I cannot afford to give away my knowledge to others for peanuts. If you want a Ferrari, you have to pay for it, you want a nice meal, you have to visit a fancy restaurant, simple……the same applies to lashes. You are investing into your future here, so be prepared to invest if you are serious about this journey. If someone is willing to sell you their knowledge for super cheap and to set up your own business, then you need to run. Do not be another person to learn the hard way.
Ensure that you get unlimited aftercare support from your lash trainer, you will need it, trust me. There will be times you will have an urgent question and need an ASAP reply from your trainer, so ask their policies on how long you expect for a reply.
Ask questions, don’t just take what you read as gospel. A good lash trainer loves to be contacted, I know I do, so you can feel free to contact me personally if you have any questions: [email protected]
I do hope all the information above has assisted in you understanding what is included in this Lash Mapping & Eye Styling course. I also hope that I can be part of your journey and that you join me and all my other amazing students in our lash community. And don’t forget, if you have any questions, just reach out and I am always happy to assist
Frankie has developed this course so that it is suitable for both the Classic only trained lash artist as well as those trained in Russian volume.
The Strip lash look is the very latest lash technique to hit our industry. Now clients can have that wispy/spiked effect giving that more dramatic and edgy look for those clients who prefer to step away from that ‘perfect topline’ effect.
This technique requires the use of volume lashes to create the level of volume needed to add texture, depth and darkness to the effect. However, with the use of Pre-made fans or YY lashes, even the non-volume trained artist can offer this technique to their clients, increasing their lash menu, thus increasing their lash revenue.
You will be able to set yourself apart from your competition, creating a very different look to what most are used to. With Eyelash extensions you can now give your clients the illusion of wearing strip lashes but without the hassle of having to apply them every day.
Although the Strip lash effect looks like that “deliberately messy hairstyle” don’t be fooled by the precision and careful mapping that goes into creating this effect. Although not easy to create by the untrained Strip lash artist, Frankie will show you how to create this effect in her easy to follow step by step techniques, broken down to make creating this look easy and fun.
If you are looking to perfect your volume fanning technique, then this course is for you. I will show you how I create perfect fans every time using precision and skill, meaning no more guesswork, or getting lucky for that perfect fan.
This course has been developed to make learning fun and easy. I will guide you step by step through the content and show you how to achieve finesse and perfection in your volume work.
Ok, we all know that volume isn’t easy to perfect, if it was then we would all be awesome at it. Instead it takes hours of practice to perfect and only those that are willing to put in the practice will succeed. However, I will share with you all my hints, tips, tricks and techniques that make creating those perfect fans pretty easy once you know how.
I have done the hard work for you, spending years practicing and perfecting the volume technique. I have travelled the world to train with some of the other great trainers out there, I have taught my techniques worldwide and judged some of the best volume technicians in the world. As such I have an excellent understanding of not only the theory behind volume, but the practical application, and I have simplified all this and will show you how you too can achieve perfection in your volume work.
This online Train the Trainer Lash Educators course will teach you all you need to know to take the next step to becoming an Eyelash Extension Trainer.
However, it is not always as simple as it sounds. It’s one thing to be a great lash technician but to be a great Eyelash Extensions Educator is another.

This course will guide you step by step through EVERYTHING, even the tiny details that are often overlooked.
Ours may not be the cheapest Trainer courses out there but there is a reason for this. Sadly, we have many artists that have taken cheaper trainer courses elsewhere, come to us for advice and guidance due to a lack content covered in their budget course.

This means learning from someone like Frankie who is an expert in this field and teaches this subject to the highest standard. there is.
She shares with you the technical aspects of becoming an eyelash trainer, as well as drawing on her experiences over the years (something many other Train the Trainer courses fail to include). This combination will assist you in being the best eyelash trainer you can be. If you want to be the best you need to learn from the best.

Would you like to be able to cater for the client with the super sparse natural lashes and know how to safely lash them to give them a beautiful set of eyelash extensions?
We have all had it, that client with either severe damage, or just naturally sparse lashes who desires a thicker fuller look. To be able to cater for that client and lash them correctly is a super advanced skill and can only be untaken by the therapist that understands this advanced technique.
Now Frankie will show you how to deal with this type of client, sharing with you her experience over the years with dealing with super sparse natural lashes, an area of lashes she now specialises in.
This course is for the already trained Russian Volume technician and not designed for those who are Classic trained only. If you only hold a Classic lash certificate them please take our Russian Volume course.
