Eyelash Excellence Beginners Eyelash Extension Course

Written on  October 19, 2023
Classic Beginners Course

What is the best beginner’s eyelash extension course? Eyelash Excellence of course…….

Why? At Eyelash Excellence, you will be taught by Frankie Widdows, an Award-winning lash expert specialising solely in eyelash extensions. She has been a lash artist since 2012 and in this time has built up an impressive reputation and resumé in the lash world.

Lash Competition Judging

Over the years she has travelled the world teaching her lash techniques to thousands of students across the globe. Not only does she run her own international eyelash extension courses, but also gets invited by salon owners. Her skill and technical work were recognised early on in her lash career, which opened invites to be a top lash judge at the world’s biggest eyelash extension competitions. She has travelled the world judging some of the best lash artists and offering her expert critique on their work. Her role as a top lash judge requires her to constantly be at the top of her game in all aspects of eyelash extensions, and these skills she uses to teach all er students from beginner to advanced levels.

Ask yourself this – how often to you get the opportunity to train with a real lash expert like Frankie? Fact, if you want to be taught correctly and learn the high-end competition standard lash secrets that many trainers do not and cannot teach, due to their restricted knowledge, then you need to seek out lash trainers like Frankie. She lives, sleeps and breathes eyelash extensions, ask her any question on any subject or lash technique and she can answer or teach it.

Frankie also teaches the most up to date lash techniques, practising with Pre mades, YY and Clover lashes to create full on fluffy looks. Up until now, Beginner’s lash courses have only taught those new to eyelash extensions with Classic lashes: a single strand of hair which creates a very natural, almost too natural lash look on most people. However, it is now time to step into the new era of lashing! Now you will learn how to create full on fluffy effects on your clients, using different types of “new technology” pre made eyelash extensions which also include YY, Clover, Easy fans etc.. These new types of eyelash extensions and techniques technically still fall under classic lash qualification, which is why they have been brought into the beginners training.

As stated before, Frankie’s courses do not just cover the basics, instead the super advanced aspects of lashing which you won’t find in other beginner lash courses.
