What should I look for in a Eyelash Extension Course?

Be wary of online training, or one-day courses.

  • Learning theory, along with hands on training with a qualified and experience technician is vital to your success.
  • Our 3 day course allows you adequate time to cover the in depth theory with the lash educator, while providing you with enough time and opportunity to ask questions. 
  • No two sets of lashes are alike, therefore you will have several opportunities to work on live models with the educator alongside, guiding and assisting you throughout the entire application.
  • Need more time with the educator? No problem! We will be happy to have you come back with one of your required models for extra one-on-one training. You are also welcome to call your educator anytime for advise, questions, or troubleshooting.

Be wary of courses that teach lash application on mannequins rather then live models.

  • Although mannequins can be a great tool for learning the basic principle of picking up the lash with your tweezer and adhering it, this is not an adequate method of learning this meticulous skill. No two sets of lashes are alike and therefore working on strip lashes does not properly prepare you for working on actual clients. Be sure that the first time you apply lash extensions to a live model will be under the guidance of the educator!
  • We believe it is our professional responsibility to insure that students have demonstrated proper application techniques on live models with the educator present, prior to performing this meticulous and delicate service on the required practice models at home. 
  • We want to ensure that our students are not only practicing safe and proper technique, but that they feel confident in their application throughout the learning process.

Be wary of courses that limit you to one product line or brand.

  • This comprehensive course includes theory based on several of the leading eyelash extension companies across North America.
  • CanWest also provides you with one of the largest training kits in the industry (approxamitly 90 sets of lashes), which includes an array of the highest quality tools, implements, and lash products from various reputable lash brands. 

 Do your research!

  • Ensure a well-recognized and qualified institution is issuing your certification.
  • With a CanWest Esthetics Division Education Program, your certification will be well recognized by salons, spas, and beauty distributers all across Canada.
  • The Canwest Eyelash extension 101 course is currently the ONLY lash extension course that has been approved and recognized by the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship Board for Journeyman certification.
