There are so many different lash courses, it can be very confusing to know which course is most suitable for you, which one you need to start with, and what course is going to best suit your needs and your clients needs.

Below is a quick summary of all the lash training that we offer and a break down of what they are. When you have a good understanding of the different treatments, you can make the right decision to help build your business.

Classic Lash Extensions

This course is the entry point for most lash technicians.  Semi Permanent Classic Lash Extensions are performed by applying one false lash to one natural lash to extend the lash length and to give a thicker and denser look to the eyes.  Infills are required every 2-3 weeks.  It is one of our most popular training courses and is the course that needs to be completed before moving on to Russian Volume Lashes.

Russian Volume Lash Extensions

Russian Volume Lash Extensions will enable you to give your client more of a ‘strip lash’ look.  You can create much more density and drama with a Russian Volume Technique.  It is also a perfect technique to give sparse lashes a fuller appearance.  Between 2-6 lash extensions are picked up and the therapist creates a fan.  Each fan is then applied to one natural lash.  This is a much more advanced technique and it is generally advised to be very confident and competent in Classic Lash Extensions before moving on to this course.

Hybrid Lashes

This method is a combination of Classic and Russian volume techniques to achieve a beautifully structured set of lashes.  A framework is created using classic lash extensions to work within and then Russian volume fans are applied between these individual lashes to boost volume.  If you are qualified in both Classic and Russian Techniques, you do not need carry out a course to be able to offer this method.

Fast Lash

This is an express lash service that can create a stunning set of lashes in around 30 minutes.  You can create various different looks, depending on what your client wants and the lashes last for up to 2 weeks, after which time, they are fully removed and a full set reapplied.  This is a great treatment for clients who struggle with the make up restrictions that can be associated with lash extension wear or for clients who are not able to lie flat for an extended period, in order to have a full set of lashes applied.

How to care for your natural lashes at home.

Many of you know that I absolutely love lash extensions!  Its one of my most popular courses and the one I absolutely love teaching.

But those of you who know me, know that I can no longer wear them as I have severe allergies to the lash glue.  I have been teaching lashes for well over 12 years now and have worn them for much of that time and years and years of breathing in the glue (remember back in the beginning we did not think that much of health and safety), the repeated exposure caused me to have to stop wearing them, and also to stop performing the service. 

However, my love for them is still there and I think they are one of the most wonderful beauty treatments for any woman!  Young or old, they define the eyes and make us all feel like fabulous!

But during this lockdown period, many of you are facing the same situation that I was 3 years ago, in that, you cannot get your lashes done! 

So I have put together a few little ideas that may help you get your lashes in tip top condition so that as soon as we are given the green light, you can race back to your lash technician with beautiful and strong natural lashes, ready for the magic to happen again!  If lash extensions are not your thing, you may even feel the urge to try a lash lifting procedure instead! 

Please remember that there is no such thing as a ‘quick fix’ with this.  Our natural lashes grow in a cycle and most of the treatments will take around 8 weeks before you see a definite result.  Also it is always advised that you patch test any new product prior to use.

Lash Growth Serums

There are so many on the market.  The one that I used and highly recommend (no affiliate links here, just my recommendations) is Revitalash.  This really helped my lashes grow, not only back, but much fuller, thicker and longer.  It is a little on the pricey side, but it works and a little goes a really long way. 

You pop the serum across your lash line every night before going to bed.  I would definitely recommend purchasing this from a Revitalash Stockist so you know it is the genuine article.  I bought mine from here https://revitalash.co.uk/catalog/product/view/id/74925/category/9

Castor Oil

A cheaper and more natural version of a growth serum.  I have read countless reviews from people who agree this stuff really works.  Castor Oil contains Ricinoleic acid which contains high levels of triclycerides which can help to nourish the lashes.  It also contains omega 6 fatty acids, which may help to improve the health of your hair – so slap this stuff on your brows and also give yourself a lovely hair mask too! 

Apply this using a cotton bud and run it across the top of your lashes (and brows) before bed.

The Castor Oil I purchased was the cold pressed castor oil from here https://www.hollandandbarrett.com/shop/product/pukka-castor-oil-60019729

Vitamin E Oil or Coconut Oil

Both oils are safe to use around the eye area.  I actually love using Coconut oil to remove my eye make up, so this is another great multi tasker!

Here are two links to both, but I get my coconut oil usually from the supermarket. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Naissance-Vitamin-Oil-100-Pure/dp/B00E5FG992/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=vitamin+e+oil&qid=1585994260&sr=8-6

Purchase here https://www.amazon.co.uk/Vita-Coco-Organic-Virgin-Coconut/dp/B07S1WDDRM/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&keywords=coconut+oil&qid=1585994098&sr=8-10

Biotin Supplements

There are health claims that Biotin supplements can help your skin, hair and nails.  Does it work?  I am not sure, but I do take them in my vitamin regime .  As with any supplement, there are side effect so always read up on anything before purchasing it.  The supplement I take is from here https://www.amazon.co.uk/Biotin-Supplement-Tablets-Nu-Nutrition/dp/B011LY3S7U/ref=redir_mobile_desktop?ie=UTF8&aaxitk=TusaibhJNV5Zytqt463N1A&hsa_cr_id=2927356800402&ref_=sb_s_sparkle

I hope that helps everyone.

Take care xx
