WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A LICENSED AND CERTIFIED LASH TECHNICIAN?

Certifications are normally obtained through a private lash company's offering days of sessions or online courses. Only a state can issue a license. To become licensed, you must first complete a specific hours at an accredited institution and then pass an exam.

The most common misunderstanding is that certification refers to license. A lash artist certification does not imply that he or she is licensed.

INVEST IN YOURSELF

When we study, we will be the one to benefit from of it too. Don't be afraid to join lash trainings, I know it's going to be expensive but I will assure you that this will be beneficial for you.

Since we are experiencing pandemic, most of the lash classes are online, in this case, you will have the comfort to learn on your own time, your own place which is the safest as of the moment. Maximizing your time to learn new stuff even at home. Most of the lash artists that I know are having lash training during the quarantine period while not taking any client yet since most of the salons are closed down.

Don't worry on how to practice, there's a mannequin that you can work on even you don't have a real person to practice.
