Made popular by celebrities like Kim Kardashian, eyelash extensions are quickly gaining popularity. Good “lash artists” are highly valued in the modern beauty industry, particularly in the larger cities of Melbourne and Sydney. For these reasons, eyelash application training is a fantastic way for beauticians to upskill and offer clients a new high-demand service.
What are lash extensions?
Lash extensions are a semi-permanent beauty treatment that leaves customers with the appearance of false eyelashes, but none of the hassles. Individual lashes are attached along the lash line with a specific lash glue. They give the appearance of mascara without the hassle of daily application or smudging. Generally, they last about a month before touch ups are needed, or alternatively a new set of eyelash extensions put on.
There are numerous types of eyelash extensions including:
- Classic lash extensions
- Russian volume extensions
- Natural lashes set
- Full-set or half-set extensions
What do eyelash technicians do?
Many beauty therapists are currently adding eyelash extension applications to their skillset due to high demand. Many beauty therapists, however, choose to specialise in these skills. These specialists are sometimes referred to as technicians.
Technicians have extensive eyelash extension training and often work for lash and brow beauty boutiques or start their own small business. They conduct client consultations to figure out what service and aesthetic the client would like, showcasing in-depth product knowledge. From there, the lash technician performs the service and explains all after-care procedures.
