Course overview

Semi-permanent individual lash extensions have become a popular beauty treatment. Lashes are made thicker and longer through the application of an individual eyelash extension which is attached to the natural eyelash.

This course has been specifically designed to develop your practical skills in how to apply individual permanent lashes.

You will need to provide a model for practice and assessment. If this is not possible the college will endeavour to arrange for you however, we cannot guarantee that one would be available for you as clients can cancel their appointment without notice.
