Eyelash Extension Training Tips


There are times when something comes along and takes the beauty industry by storm. Eyelash extensions currently holds that top spot, and it does not seem to be letting go of its grip on the industry.
To accommodate the unbelievable demand, there has been just as rapid an increase in the number of eyelash extension courses offered.

Improvements have been made to the types of eyelash extensions used, as well as to the types of eyelash extension training offered. Below are some of the newest improvements to the typical eyelash application training programs offered.

Online training

Online training is now available for those who are pressed for time and cannot afford to sit in a traditional classroom type setting for multiple hours. It has also become an alternative for individuals who may wish to be trained by an expert who is not geographically available to them.

The types of online training that’s readily available comes in the forms of DVD’s, skype classes and pre-recorded lessons, which can be streamed at the viewer’s convenience.
These programs still offer standard certifications to those who complete the courses of study, but offer a way for trainers to easily reach more students.

Short term or 2 day training

Many professional trainers now offer 2 day training courses or some other form of short term program. These should be done in a hands-on environment and they usually involve application on live clients. The training programs offering this type of quick turnaround are most commonly offered to people who are already certified, either as estheticians or as cosmetologists.

Short term programs will not provide as much actual application practice as other longer termed programs might. However, the basis of this type of offering is built around convenience for already otherwise qualified students.

If you are looking to offer this type of eyelash extension training program, be sure to require some type of prior beauty industry qualification or licensure, as a prerequisite.

Non-licensed training

Training for those who are not licensed in any category of the beauty industry may sound scary, but it does not have to be. The training professionals that provide certification to those individuals, just need to ensure they employ highly trained and qualified teachers, who specialize in teaching the proper technique of eyelash extension application, to those who may be unfamiliar with client interactions and other beauty service basics.

Training can be tailored to meet the needs of just about any student who is interested in learning about eyelash extensions. Be mindful of the students you want to attract and focus on the type of training that best suits the type of student you would like to train

Laser Hair Removal: Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow


Women and men alike find beauty of some sort of importance; some consider it far more important than others and many consider it one of the most important things there is. For some that consider beauty important, body hair is an unsightly and unattractive look on anyone. While some women wake up each morning and shave their legs and beneath their arms, men wake up to shave their faces and sometimes have to do it again in the evening. Men and women also choose to have other body hair, such as their facial hair – mustaches and eyebrows – and their bikini lines waxed to remove unwanted hair. Keeping their unwanted hair at bay is a job that takes a lot of time and a lot of effort for many, which is why the concept of laser hair removal is one that is growing in popularity.

Hair removal is something that anyone can do to remove the hair from their body. While it isn’t a permanent hair removal process, laser hair removal does keep a person hair free for a lengthy time; unlike shaving and waxing which last only a very short amount of time. The way that laser hair removal works is that a person goes to a removal office and has a laser trained over the parts of the body they want their hair removed from; the laser kills the hair from the inside and prevents it from growing back in the near future. Some people that have had their body hair removed through laser treatments have gone years without hair regrowth.

A person that opts to try hair removal must understand that it has to be done in treatments; it cannot be done all at once. However, it can be done to numerous parts of the body, including the face, under a person’s arms, their arms, backs, chests and stomachs and their legs. Laser hair removal prevents unwanted stubble at the end of the day and does not require daily touching up. In fact, some people can go months without anymore hair growth. The light that is aimed at the hair kills the follicles, allowing a person to be hair free for a very long period of time.

When it comes to removing hair with a laser, people often want to know if their insurance plan will cover the cost of the treatments. It will not. However, some treatment centers will allow patients to create a payment plan for hair removal that will make it possible for them to afford the services. Getting rid of unwanted body hair is a way for some to feel more comfortable and confident in their bodies while it is simply a time saver for others. Women with children like this procedure because it cuts down on time in the shower each day. Others enjoy it because it means they will look great on the beach all summer long. Whatever a person’s reason for wanting their hair removed, one thing is certain; they will never look or feel better.
