While some programs offer models, it's common for aspiring eyelash technicians to bring their own models to practice their techniques. You can find models by asking family and friends if someone is willing to attend class with you and receive a free set of practice tabs. Another popular method is to post on social media with the available time slots to promote your free services while you develop your skills. It's worth waiting for something worthwhile and applying eyelash extensions is no exception to this rule.
A session can last between 1.5 and 3 hours, so it's important that you keep the environment calm and relaxing for your clients, being patient at all times and not hurrying with the work at hand. Remember that if your clients feel that you are anxious to finish their treatment or that their heart isn't working, this will also affect their mood. Most people need three to six months or more of practice before becoming a skilled and talented eyelash artist. As you get up to speed, you may become discouraged and question your decision to become an eyelash artist.
Trust us, no one is born as a great last artist. Even the best of them had to practice a lot. Or maybe you're simply in love with eyelash extensions and think you can make a rewarding career doing what you love.
