What you need to know

Good eyesight is important for lash technicians and lash applications because you’re dealing with detail. Don’t worry if you’re eyesight isn’t perfect – you can wear glasses or contact lenses if you need to. Another thing that you definitely need is steady hands so you can carry out the delicate lash application process.

One aspect of being a lash technician or training in eyelash extensions that some people find difficult is patience and trusting the process. Like anything, it takes time to build up your skills, speed, and experience. While the work can seem tedious at times, don’t let this put you off. Being a lash technician is also a very rewarding career choice, especially once you’ve developed your skills. Once you are competent with lash applications, running your own lash business from home will likely be the next step in your career in the lash industry.
