1-on-1 Hourly Training-$80/Hr.
Lash mapping, eye correcting and design are advanced aspects of lash extensions, as well as capping, stacking and handmade volume fans. I have an entire chapter dedicated to lash design in my class, but as a new lash artist, focusing on perfectly bonded one-to-one lashes, direction, and mastering isolation and separation skills are what is required for a solid technical foundation.
Not all classic lash training's offer a section of lash design. Some training's do not go into detail on understanding the growth cycle or how to build thickness and structure in a set with layering. Did they teach how to correctly do a fill?
Maybe you already know these things but want some guidance in different fan building techniques, choosing the right fan diameter or lash wrapping for super strong bonds? Do your client's struggle with retention? Bring one in and we can evaluate your process from consultation to aftercare, what humidity your room is at or if your adhesive dries too quickly for your pace. Client's should be able to go (if they want to) 3-3.5 weeks and maintain 50% of their extensions. If your client's can barely make it 2 weeks, there are several reasons why (and it may or may not be your client's fault!) Either way, 1 hour with you and your client and I can almost guarantee I will figure out the changes that need to be made so that your extensions stay bonded for the life of the lash or until you replace it!
