These extensions are a move away from the traditional strip lashes that everyone has painstakingly tried to apply at one time or another. Instead, these are individual lashes which are added to the clients own natural lash for a truly fabulous effect. Clients can achieve anything from dramatically sweeping lashes to a generally thicker and fuller effect.
This course will teach you everything you need to know about offering a professional eyelash extension treatment and includes a practical training session and assessment.
This course follows the National Occupational Standards and covers the technique for eyelash extension application for both individual and flare as well as the correct removal and maintenance of lashes. The course includes anatomy and physiology of the hair and eye, contra-indications and contra-actions to treatment and consultation and aftercare advice.
The course is fully accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists, the UK’s leading professional beauty trade body, for membership and insurance purposes. Upon completion of the course, students will receive a full-colour certificate for a GTi Award in Eyelash Extensions Treatments.
The course is beautifully written and accompanied by images, video and a voice-over. Upon completion of the online theory modules, you will receive a PDF manual which you can refer back to. All modules and examinations are completed online with full online support available
Please note: From 1st May 2018, if you are not already a member of the GTi you are required to join as a Student Member costing £25 and paid directly to the GTi.
