When choosing a lash educator,
it's good to know what makes them certifiable
Have they ever taught their course in any schools if so please get them to give you the names of the schools?
Have their certificates ever been accepted in any professional schools?
How long was their Lash Trainer program? Was it an online course, and who taught them?
Are their classes held in a professional setting i.e. a salon or a school?
How do you fill your kit products after you run out?
Do they fully stock / deliver their products?
Do they have a visible lash directory of past students or does the public need to log into their system for that info?
This is important for anyone looking to see your name to hire you or a customer wants to see if you are certified.
Please be aware and do your homework! - If a lash artist or company has just copied someone else's course they will not have been trained to teach lash extensions, nor will they have branded products.
We are trying to keep the public as informed as we can, as far as Lash education and certification goes. Our trainers have had at least three months each of training from Elaine the founder of Enlightened Lashes, on how to teach lash extensions to students.
