How long does a beginner lash tech take?

The initial application can take between 1, 5 and 4 hours, depending on the style you want to achieve and the experience of your eyelash artist. The filling (retouching) can take up to an hour or two. There are many examples that prove this statement, the renowned “queen of eyelash extensions” Jo Mousselli, began her career as a nurse, but her love for eyelashes led her to the world of lashes. In fact, in some states of America it is not enough to have a certificate, it is necessary to obtain a license to become an eyelash technician.

If you use too little, eyelash extensions won't last long, if you use them too much, the eyelash extension will become too heavy for natural eyelashes and will come off faster than it should. As an eyelash technician, you meet incredible clients, you meet people from different walks of life, and many clients are lifelong friends. Secondly, you'll have to keep an eye on the direction in which the tips of your eyelashes point; if you don't, the final look will be a disaster. Sometimes I also make a tab on the outside and another on the inside working from side to side so that the glue dries.

After completing the theoretical course and taking practical classes, you can start making eyelashes at home. The Lashmaker profession attracts specialists from other areas of the beauty industry (manicure, pedicure, hairdressing), as well as people interested in fashion trends. Luckily, there are thousands of experienced eyelash artists who came before you and made mistakes in their first careers that they had to learn from. If you don't place the extension close enough to the eyelid, you run the risk that your eyelashes will grow too quickly and ruin the appearance, or they will become too heavy for your natural eyelashes and cause damage.

Improper placement of the eye patches will also cause the eyelashes in the inner corners of the lash line to lift up, meaning that the placement will not be accurate and the eyelashes will look messy. Lash Tech's career path comes with limitless growth opportunities, you can expand your eyelash business massively, introduce your own line of products and be an eyelash educator. The eyelash extension procedure can take several hours, so it will be more comfortable to work with light tweezers. The Lash Professional has done everything possible to cater to emerging artists in the industry and would do anything to make YOU successful.
