What is the advantage of taking a course with The Lashe®?

The Lashe® courses were developed by experienced stylists and designed to teach artistry, technical skills and provide valuable hands-on experience. The eyelash extension application process is a highly technical skill based on fine detail work. The Lashe® educates for success. Our goal is to certify and graduate 100% salon-ready stylists that are capable of precision extension applications and well educated in the terminology and techniques used in the field. The goal is to master the same level of work and technique as the stylists at Salon Lashe® consisting of 200-300 lashes per eye for a 2-hour full set.

How do The Lashe® courses compare to other training courses available?

Our intensive hands-on training courses are designed to be the most comprehensive courses available.

What is the advantage of being in a salon setting?

The Lashe® courses are not only designed to perfect your artistry but also to place you in a salon environment. Training in this type of atmosphere allows you to observe proper client interaction between stylists and clients as well as proper client consultations and aftercare instructions. The education acquired through total immersion in the salon environment will hone and perfect your client interaction skills so that you will be a more effective communicator. The salon environment is a clean and sterile environment allowing you to learn how to set your work area up to be efficient and hygienic. Salon Lashe® also provides you with proper hydraulic beds that can be raised and lowered via remote control. This will ensure you have proper client height for proper body ergonomics. If you are not properly positioned you may, in the long-term, hurt yourself.

What is the training environment/class size?

The Lashe® has a class size of 2 instructors and no more than 3 students. The course covers technical and artistic skills. You will receive personal and one-on-one attention for maximum material retention. Because of the small class size, classes are often tailored to the skill level and needs of the stylist. If a stylist is progressing slower or faster on certain skills, the class can be easily augmented to fit their needs.
