For hundreds of years, long, thick lashes have been thought to be a symbol of youth and beauty. It’s no surprise, then, that new treatments and products have continued to increase in range and popularity in the search for the perfect pair of lashes.
Volumising mascaras and false eyelashes, in particular, have become a fashionable DIY way of lengthening the look of your lashes on an everyday basis. But what if you want your lashes to last that bit longer? Is there a treatment that will keep your lashes looking fuller and more luscious without needing constant daily reapplication?
Lash extension could be the answer, and training as a lash technician will equip you with all the tools and tricks to succeed in this high-demand industry. Here’s everything you need to know!
The job of an eyelash technician
Eyelash technicians are tasked with the physical and aesthetic maintenance of lashes. The best technicians will create a safe and comfortable environment where clients feel listened to when it comes to their lash needs or insecurities.
Popular eyelash treatments include:
- eyelash extensions – the application of synthetic lashes to the lash line, merging them seamlessly with the client’s natural lashes in order to create a lengthened and defined final look
- eyelash lift and tint – where the natural lashes are uplifted and enhanced, this is the perfect look for anyone wanting a more natural vibe
- hybrid lashes – the best of both: lash extension combined with volume technique, resulting in ultra-defined lashes
It is also important for a lash technician to be knowledgeable about the health and maintenance of the client’s natural lashes, such as strengthening and supporting eyelash growth, as well as keeping them healthy between treatments.
What are the benefits of lash training?
Taking an eyelash technician course puts you in the driver’s seat of your career. You will learn creative and practical skills which you can use to grow both your business and your clients’ confidence. Whether you are working a wedding or just offering a bit of a weekly self-confidence boost, you can be assured that you are making a positive impact on someone’s day whilst creating a great reputation with your clients.
We find that beauty treatments can help us reconnect with ourselves and keep us grounded in the present moment, especially when our minds may be wandering to thoughts of other life responsibilities and stresses. Beauty is a very sociable industry, allowing us to make new connections and bonds with those we get to work with.

Is eyelash extension training worth it?
To be honest…yes! Training as an eyelash technician and becoming skilled at treatments such as lash extensions is an excellent way to create a flexible and creative career for yourself, which can grow and expand as your skills and client base do.
You get to do what you enjoy whilst making others happy – what’s not to love about that?
