Are All Opportunities to Learn How to Perform Eyelash Extensions Created Equally?
No, to an average consumer the options seem alike. The truth is, the market has many online or in-person trainings that are taught by eyelash artists who could've taught themselves off of YouTube, Instagram Reels, TikTok, etc..
If you are an esthetician, or cosmetologist you are aware that your accreditations play a key role in the success of your career. Each state has different rules and regulations, such as Minnesota requires an esthetician or cosmetologist license to enroll in an accredited eyelash extension academy. In Wisconsin, there are no standards set by the Cosmetology Board.
Eyelash extensions are a relatively new beauty service to our area. In the Midwest we are the last to know of any beauty trends. There are men and women alike who are still unaware of what luxury beauty services such as eyelash extensions, microblading, or powder brows are.
If a business is offering training for eyelash extensions, you should verify: if they've an educational institute, where they received their education, what you receive for the investment, how long they've been in business, and if you like the style of their work. Is the training you will receive hands-on, how many students will there be, and will any continuing education be provided?
Why Is Gloss Beautique Different?
At Gloss Beautique we focus on hands-on education with small class sizes. With one educator we allow six or less students. With two educators we allow for twelve students. We provide two models for the two day hands-on portion if the student doesn't wish to, or is traveling.
We facilitate our education program within our business, while the material is provided by Bella Lash Eyelash Extensions. Bella Lash Eyelash Extensions is the largest lash brand in the US. You gain access to the online training portion as soon as enrolling. You always have this in your back pocket if you need it as a point of reference.
Each of our methods of eyelash extensions are taught in 16 hour, two day trainings. Classic, volume, and mega volume all follow this structure. Eyelash lifting and brow lamination is a one day, eight hour training.
Our passion is in educating future eyelash artists in finding their passion, building a career, and supporting them throughout. We provide 1:1 mentoring in person or via Zoom. 1:1 mentoring is especially beneficial to those students who wish to pursue opening their own business immediately.
What matters most is the value you place in education.
