Classic Eyelash Extension Training
Learn from Philadelphia's lash experts! Master the art of semi-permanent eyelash extensions with our comprehensive training. Spread over the course of two days, we dedicate enough time to the topics you need to understand most (that means a little less classroom time and a lot more hands-on practice!). Receive real-time, in-depth feedback from our experienced LashBee trainers. Small class sizes (maximum of 4 trainees) ensure you receive plenty of one-on-one attention.
The help doesn't stop on the last day of class, though - our instructors will check in to check your progress and answer any questions. You'll have the option to become LashBee-certified (upon successfully meeting our high standards) and proudly share your expertise with clients. Even more, LashBee-trained stylists receive preference for open positions at our locations.
Take a peek at what we'll be covering:
Day 1: Focus on Fundamentals (10:00am-6:00pm)
- Introduction to eyelash extensions & their history
- Natural eyelash growth and anatomy
- The eyelash extension application process
- Client consultations
- Styling concerns - selecting the appropriate extensions for optimal lash safety, retention and appearance enhancement
- Factors that affect retention
- Caring for extensions
- Allergies & adverse reactions
- Hands-on practice: application foundations (+ demonstrations)
- Client & workstation preparation
- Proper isolation
- Proper adhesive use
- Proper extension application
Day 2: Practical Application of Knowledge (10:00am-6:00pm)
- Advanced application techniques (corrective lashing, using tape during application)
- Process for conducting fill appointments
- Process for removing extensions
- Hands-on practice: application of full sets of lashes on 2 models, incorporating advanced techniques
- Evaluation & feedback
- What's next: basics of building your business, additional training, LashBee partnership opportunities, and more!
You will notice that, relative to some other companies, we spend less time focused on theory and more time on practice. Over the 2 days, you'll get more than 10 hours of guided, hands-on practice! This is because we believe that, as a beginner, it's hard to truly understand the concepts taught in training without sufficient time to practice them in the presence of a LashBee expert.
All trainees receive a large kit with enough materials for more than 25 applications (a $300+ value!) or have the option of purchasing an extra-large kit (50 applications) for $100 more. All kits include everything you need to get started, from a selection of extensions, eye pads, tweezers, magnifying glasses and much more! Our kits come in a complimentary beautiful makeup bag (a $75 value) that makes it easy to transport all your lash supplies.
After completing the course, you will receive a complimentary LashBee Certificate indicating that you were trained in Classic Eyelash Extensions.
After you are able to complete a full set in 3 hours, you are able to schedule time to come back to LashBee to take an exam for LashBee's Level I Certification. During this exam, you must lash all healthy adult lashes and correct for any mistakes within the time allotted. This certification is equivalent to being a LashBee Junior Stylist.
After you are able to complete a full set in 2 hours and 15 minutes, you are able to take the exam for LashBee's Level II Certification. This is equivalent to the level of a LashBee regular stylist.
All certifications are included in the initial course tuition. Those who have not taken a course with LashBee are able to come in for certification for a fee of $35.

The Fine Print
Trainees are responsible for providing their own models (2). Please notify us ASAP if you are having difficulty finding sufficient models. We may be able to provide additional models (may incur a small fee). On day 1, no models are necessary as hands-on practice will focus on mastery of application basics before working with a live model. On day 2, from 10:30am-1:30pm and 2:30-5:30pm. You are welcome to use the same model for both sessions on day 2, although we recommend using two different models to experience variety in natural lash types.
State regulations vary. It is your responsibility to ensure you understand your state's licensing regulations regarding application of eyelash extensions before registering. The state board of cosmetology of PA and NJ do require a cosmetology or estheticians license for applying lash extensions. If you are coming from another state, we encourage you to check with your respective state board.
