This is a question we receive calls on all the time. The answer is YES you can take the eyelash extension training workshop or online eyelash extension training class if you are enrolled in a cosmetology or esthetician program. All you would need to provide is proof that you are currently enrolled prior to registering for a class. Proof can include you acceptance letter to the program. By taking the eyelash extension training while you are in school, this will give you ample time to practice and perfect your skill so that once you do get your license you can start seeing clients right away.


Cut down on your eyelash extension application time – using a glue ring allows for a quicker lash application because of its proximity. The ring is comfortable to wear and can be adjusted to fit any size finger. It can hold glue and remover for a more convenient service.

Eyelash tinting and perming is typically only allowed by cosmetologists but every state will vary with their rules and regulations regarding which type of license is required to be able to do eyelash tinting and eyelash perming on a client. In the state of California only licensed cosmetologists can provide this eyelash tinting. We recommend contacting the State Board of Cosmetology in your state to confirm which services you can offer with your specific license.
