These courses are guaranteed to bring in regular customers every 2-4 weeks. You can charge around £50-£120. Dependent on location and experience.

Individual Lashes - One lash to each lash. These are a great starting point as you can have natural or a more dramatic look. You can mix the lash length, volume and curl! This is a really great treatment to start off with when training. Any lash technician should start with this course before going on to learn the below.


Russian LashesHand-made fans. This is multiple lashes made into a fan that is applied to 1 lash! Great if you like the fuller darker lash line and want to provide a more dramatic look for your clients. This is the perfect next step course from individual lashes. We don’t recommend offering pre made fans, as this will mean you have double the amount of glue on the natural lashes and can damage them. This is the hardest lash technique to learn, we recommend you spend some time at home just practicing creating those perfect fans before going onto a client so You know your offering the best quality, long lasting sets of lashes!


Hybrid Lashes - A mix of individual lashes and Russians! This is beautiful to give you the perfect wispy look for your clients. To perfect this skill set you will need to be able to perfect both of the above techniques.

Mega Volume - This is as full, big and bold as you can get! These are not for the faint hearted but wow on the right set of natural lashes they can look amazing! You. Usually find this course. As a master. Class and we. Would only recommend you do these when you are fully confident and have done a lot of Russian sets so your fully confident on how to place the lashes safely and how to create the best fans. Do not rush to learn this take you time and really ensure your confident enough to move onto this stage.
