2.4 Lash enhancement process

Now that you have a solid understanding of the history of perming and the differences between lash perms and lash lifts, we will finish this module off by taking a look at the lash enhancement process from end to end and introduce you to key terminology that you will use in your role as a lash artist.

When working with your clients, you will begin with the end in mind (the desired look) and will then work backwards to determine what you will need to do to achieve the end goal. Using a similar approach in your learning, it is important for you to understand what the end goal is before you can begin working towards it. The diagram below provides a simple overview of each phase of the lash enhancement process that you will learn throughout this course:

This course has been strategically designed to ensure that you begin by building your knowledge of all the processes, techniques, tools, products, and safety requirements that are critical for your role as a lash artist. Once you have a solid understanding of all of the theory components, you can then begin practising and refining the broad range of skills you will need to be successful in your role and to ensure your clients leave your treatment area happy and satisfied.
