What Are Eyelash Extensions And How Are They Applied?

A lash extension treatment involves applying individual synthetic lashes onto each natural eyelash to add extra length and volume. They’re perfect for holidays, a big event or just perfect lashes every day.

It takes around an hour and a half to two hours for a full set to be applied, so it’s definitely not a lunch-break treatment. But you’ll be surprised; it’s ultra-relaxing and a lot of people fall asleep whilst they’re being applied. So plan your time wisely and catch up on some rest at the same time.

How Long Do Lash Extensions Last For?

Lash extensions typically last the same lifetime as your natural lash cycle, which is between 4-6 weeks. However, to avoid them looking patchy as they grow out, most lash salons usually recommend top-ups after 2 or 3 weeks to keep lashes looking full and uniform.

Why Become An Eyelash Stylist?

Invest in a career that empowers you with financial independence, a flexible work schedule, and repeat clientele who rebook lash appointments every two to four weeks.

As an George Lashes Certified Lash Stylist you can own and operate your own business, seek employment at your local salon, contract at your local multi-stylist lash studio, or even become a mobile freelancer. Plus, you’ll be extending your client’s beauty every day!

Whether you’re starting your eyelash extensions career or looking to advance your skills and increase your profits, we have a Career Builder Package that’s right for you.”



EYESIGHT – Is your vision (far sightedness or near sightedness) correctable with glasses or mags? Do you have depth perception problems? Wearing glasses or mags will not compensate for depth perception issues. We highly recommend you have your vision checked for acuity and depth perception prior to taking a class. Vision problems can be problematic when applying eyelash extensions. Individual eyelash extensions are applied to one human eyelash and cannot touch another lash. You will be required to single out and isolate one human lash and see clearly if there is anything surrounding that lash. 

SPATIAL ABILITY Can you interpret and visualize the spatial relationship of one object to another? Applying eyelash extensions requires you to be able to understand and visualize the different angles that you can pick up and apply the eyelash extensions at in order to correctly attach the extensions. 

STEADY HANDS & DEXERITY You need to have extremely steady hands. You will be working around the eye with very sharp tweezers. Both hands will be needed, and you will be required to use your non dominant hand to isolate the natural lashes. You will be required to use your dominant hand to place one single lash extension perfectly on one natural human lash.

George Lashes training will teach you everything you need to know about the application process. We focus on the theory behind the application, and the application process. We offer support after you train with us. Our goal is to make you one of the best eyelash extension stylist in the field. We not only want your extensions to look good, but to be technically correct and comfortable for the client. Safety is our number one priority as well as maintaining the health of your client’s lashes.

You must be a patient person and have the willingness to make time to practice. If you don’t have a place to practice or have a manager that will push you to take paying clients before your application is acceptable you may want to give us a call first before signing up for our class. Visualizing what is appropriate and flattering to the clients eyes is something George Lashes prides itself on in training. Most importantly our goal is for all candidates to want their application to be technically sound before venturing out in the field. Be Savvy. Be the Best. Be George Lashes!

Whether you’re starting your eyelash extensions career, or an experienced Lash Stylist looking to advance your skills and increase your profits, we have a Career Builder Package that’s right for you.
