We have been offering eyelash extensions since July. I am one of the techs providing the service. What brand of lashes (and glue, etc) did you buy? I am not having any of the difficulties that you expressed. We use 3-D Lashes. I do have some tips to share, if you're interested. Coat the extension with glue so that 2-4 tiny droplets peel along it's length. After isolating the natural lash you are bonding, "stroke" the lash upwards (from near base to tip) with the glue-coated lash extension. The lash then gravitates towards the glued extension, making it easier to attach the two. There will probably be a droplet or two on the bonded lashes. Using your tweezers, 'comb' this glue droplet toward the root (not the tip!). That will help to reinforce the 'joint' between the two. I work from left to right, leaving only fine-tuning spaces in between. Some people place "ribs" - five or so lashes, spread far apart - and then work to the right or left of each rib. That gives them time to dry. I use a sealant that I got with my kit. I don't apply it with microswabs. I use a small, flat sable brush from the art supply store. The sealant goes on thoroughly and evenly. My clients return every 2 weeks (give or take) to keep up a constantly fresh-looking lash line (just like filling your nails).

I have been putting fake individual lashes since I was 18 so when they came out with the permanent eyelash extensions I took a course on how to apply them since then I have been using different types of glue from different vendors, Prisma is the far most the best with the best results at this point the key is to apply the least glue as possible, to avoid any cluster of glue or better yet to keep the other lashes from sticking!!!!Good luck

I would recomend using Xtreme Lashes eyelash Extensions. Xreme Lashes currently carries the thickest lashes available on the market. The HP-3 Glue is also by far one of the best adhesives worldwide. Make sure you get properly trained and certified.

X-Xtreme Lashes are by far the best.  I have both the Prisma kit and the X-Xtreme Lashes kits and have been certified with Xtreme and their entire operation is a class act, and superior products and support.  I have not received any feedback form email to Prisma, and I was very disappointed in their kit, which I paid $200 for.

eyelash extensions are awesome!  I now work at a spa in Texas, but i went to school in California around the time they started to get really big.  I'm addicted to them, but have yet to learn how to do it.  Anyways one of my old classmates from Ca has been doing them for a while, I guess she's really good and makes a lot of money at it.  She was self-taught at first and then decided to fork over the money for a class at xtreme.  she was very happy with the class, but then she went to a trade show in long beach and met a lady who worked for Natural Lash? Anybody ever heard of them, I can't find them on the net?  I guess the lady was a book full of knowledge and now they're really good friends.  My friend said there training is by far the best she's seen and said i have to sign up for it, but I still don't know if it's worth the money.  Is is that hard, I don't mind laying there to get them put on but applying them is a whole new story. any help would be appreciated.  Thanks ya'll

Hi there,

have any of you dealt with jane beauty for eyelashes, or heard anything about them.  I have just ordered a kit - I read about them somewhere on the web but can't remember where lol.  They were spoken of quite favourably.

many thanks , June.

there are a number of comapnies. just google eye ladh extensions. the 3 most reputable i can find are Xtreme lashes, Nola lashes and 3-d lashes. They all cost about $1000 for training and a kit. If there is a trade show in your area go and check them out. They usually offer a show discount or ask them for one.

A friend is using xtreme and very happy with the training and the superior glue .

I checked out Michele at http://www.igotomichele.com.  She offers the training at a much lower rate.  GREAT one on one service.  She uses Jane products.  She has a small business and works Seattle, Oregon, and Idaho.  Good luck!

I just took the lash extension certification course from American Institute of Intra-dermal Cosmetics or Premier Pigments in Arlington.

I have only used the extensions in class and I found it somewhat tedious, but simple enough once you get the hang of it. I seem to think that the key is avoid using to much glue and air dry or fan frequently.

It's not something I want to spend the day doing but offering the service here and there to key clients is good business.

Any thoughts?

Hello!  I am seriously considering a lash extension course and looking for information on Xtreme Lashes and/or Lavish Lashes. Both seem to offer the same type of kit and cost for the course.  But, looking for input from users of the products.  Any likes/dislikes and actual experiences...thks

I think they are all competitive. I trained with xtreme and I thought they were excellent. When I read other threads some people didn't like them, personally I think you get out of training what you give. I practiced on the fake lashes from the day I received my kit and when I went to the training I was very familiar with the everything in the kit to holding the tweezers to the technique. And I really picked up on it very fast and by the end of the 9 hr. training I felt very confident in my ability to do eyelash extensions. I think you need to give 100% and practice a lot. Then you will be as good as you can!!! I hear a lot of different pros and cons of every co. you have to try certain products from each and see what works best for you and your clients, that's what I did!!  I have no problems with the glue from xtreme. But when I run out or it expires, I will try another brand to see which one works best.....that's the best advice I can give! But I do love doing the lash extensions.... I hope I helped you : )
