Pre-Course Study

This intense, action packed program includes in-depth lecture in a classroom environment followed by a demonstration by the trainer of an ideal lash application. The student is required to bring a model with them for the hands-on portion of the class. After the trainer has demonstrated the techniques, the student will begin applying lashes on their model under the direction and supervision of the trainer. Upon conclusion of the practical application, the trainer will evaluate the strengths of each student and help them identify opportunities for improvement. A written exam follows the completion of the course. Upon successful completion of the key performance indicators, the student will be given the instructions that they must follow for their case studies.

Things to remember on class day:

  • Do not be late. Be early. If your class starts at 9:00 AM, arrive at 8:45 AM. If your class starts at 10:00 AM, arrive at 9:45 AM. If you are more than 10 minutes late for the class, the trainer may ask you to leave and make-up the class on another day.

  • Do not drink caffeine on the day of the class. This is a technique that requires fine motor skills and steady hands. Caffeine can sometimes make performance difficult
