According to the California Board of Barbering and Cosmetology, in order to legally perform lash extensions, the minimum requirement is that your artist must be a licensed esthetician or a cosmetologist.

The practice of applying eyelashes, eyelash extensions, eyelash strips, and make-up to any person is only within the scope of practice of licensed cosmetologists and estheticians.

As stated in section 7316 of the California Business and Professions Code in part reads as follows:

(c) Within the practice of cosmetology there exist the specialty branches of skincare and nail care.

(1) Skincare is any one or more of the following practices:

As stated in section 7317 of the California Business and Professions Code reads as follows:

Except as provided in this article, it is unlawful for any person, firm, or corporation to engage in barbering, cosmetology, or electrolysis for compensation without a valid, unexpired license issued by the board, or in an establishment or mobile unit other than one licensed by the board, or conduct or operate an establishment, or any other place of business in which barbering, cosmetology, or electrolysis is practiced unless licensed under this chapter.

Board didn’t provide any training on this, any lash artist can look for training to further develop their skills.
