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!

Russian Volume One Day Lash Course

Eyelash Excellence - Russian Voluse Lash Course

Volume Eyelash Extensions are a new lash technique that has taken the world by storm. This is the “must have” lash technique for the experienced therapist.

This technique will allow you to cater for every client that comes into your salon, from those that desire the thickest, fullest look possible, to those that want lightweight Volume with major “fluff”. You can now extend your lash menu and offer your clients a look to suit their requirements and budget – from a natural look, to major fullness.

  • Price: £375 (+VAT)

  • Course time: 10am – 6pm
  • Location: Ashford International Hotel, Simone Weil Avenue, Ashford, Kent, TN24 8UX
    or
    Hempstead House Hotel & Spa, London Road, Bapchild, Sittingbourne, ME9 9PP

    Ashford International Hotel has super links to the M20 motorway and Ashford International train station, which is a 5-10 minute taxi ride away. The Hotel provides comfortable accommodation and is situated next to a large super market and is a short distance from a business park and town centre. Free parking is available all day for students.
  • Course Schedule:
  • 10am – 12.30pm – In-depth Theory
  • 12.30 – 1.30pm – Lunch (provided)
  • 1.30 – 3.30pm – Pick-up techniques
  • 3.30 – 5.45pm  – Application techniques
  • 5.45 – 6pm – Q&A and Finish
IMPORTANT: This course is a ONE day course. Models are NOT required.

The volume technique was developed in Russia, hence the name. It involves the use of ultra fine lashes that are applied to the client in a fanned effect, to create full and fluffy effects.

Each fan is skilfully made by the therapist at the time of application, and attached in a method called the ‘wrap’, which ensures a seamless bond and excellent retention.

This technique is suitable for experienced classic trained (1 on 1) eyelash technician, as well as those who have already taken a volume course and would like to perfect their pick up, application and technical knowledge.

Students must have a minimum of 6 months Classic lashing experience and be a confident, competent and busy lash tech. This technique requires you to be very skilled with your tweezers, as well as having an excellent understanding of the lash industry and techniques. The Russian Volume technique is an ‘add-on’ advanced and intricate lash treatment, and will not turn you into an amazing tech alone.

Frankie cannot teach novice lash technicians, or those that lack the Classic skills required to move onto the advanced and difficult technique.

If you are in any doubt as to whether this course is suitable for you, then please email Frankie with some of your most recent work to: info@eyelashexcellence.com

Afternoon session

  • How to correctly hold your tweezers for perfect fans
  • 4 different pick-up techniques
  • Glue dipping your perfect fan
  • Correcting an “imperfect fan”
  • Fan perfection practice
  • Application to mannequin head using the wrap technique

Models are not required for the day

Frankie does not use models on one-day volume courses. The technique of Russian volume requires the precise creation of consistently perfect fans and this takes many hours of practice. Frankie teaches a variety of techniques, so that each student can find a technique that best suits them. Frankie spends a lot of time with her students perfecting the chosen pick up technique, including the correct glue dipping, placement and wrap of the fan onto the natural lash.

The above techniques all take time and can be practiced and perfected away from a real model, and applied correctly to a mannequin head.

The use of models on one-day courses, limits the time students have to practice and perfect their pickup techniques. This can mean that students lack the necessary practice time and confidence in the techniques taught and are asked to work on real models without having mastered the pickup correctly.
As a result, students either rush their volume work in attempt to create a full set, or the model leaves unhappy with a half-finished set of Russian volume extensions due to the limited lashing time available on a one-day course.

Every student that attends, is expected to be an experienced therapist who is confident and competent working on real models. As such, the techniques taught during the day can then be applied to their clients in their own time.

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!
