So my background is Thai/Dutch and before I began in the Lash Industry I was running my own Fashion Clothing store in Fortitude Valley here in Brisbane. Things were going great right up until around 2008 when the GFC hit and then business got really slow so I decided to take a holiday and visit my family in Thailand and at the same time thought I’d do an Eyelash Extension course while I was there.
With Eyelash Extensions now the leading segment of the beauty industry here in Australia with an estimated 2 million (and growing rapidly) self confessed “Lash Addicts”, there has never been a better time to become a qualified Lash Stylist.
Since opening one of Australia’s first dedicated Eyelash Extension salon’s over 7 years ago I never would have thought that Lash Extensions would become so mainstream. It really has become a “must have” of so many women these days.
Compared to classic lash extensions, where you could only SAFELY attach one eyelash extension to each natural lash, Russian Volume Lashes (also known as 2D – 8D lashes) breaks through that limitation by having anywhere from 2 to 8 super fine extensions applied to a single natural eyelash, SAFELY.
This has only been made possible thanks to recent technological advancements.
So you’ve decided to learn volume lashing! Here are 3 of the biggest mistakes lash stylists make… (and how you can avoid them!).
This is where it all starts and unfortunately too many stylists do not research their options for Volume training as well as they should and often end up making their decision based on price. Choosing a training course because it is the cheapest will only end up costing you more in the future.
Here’s a quick video of Classic and Volume Eyelash Extensions Training reviews. All training course is facilitated by internationally awarded Master Lash Stylist, Joy Crossingham.
