It has been our mission to make sure we keep every student and team member safe during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
We have taken drastic measures to exceed all CDC recommendations in every classroom. Here are some of the measures we have taken:
- Class sizes are reduced to provide additional social distancing, the current average class size is 8 students.
- Temperature checks are mandatory for all staff, students, and models upon arrival at the door.
- Facial masks are required for all students, models, and staff who enters the classes.
- Gloves are highly encouraged during the hands-on portion of our training classes.
- All training lash beds are separated by at least 7′ of space from each other.
- Hand washing stations are available in every classroom.
- Hand sanitizers are available in every classroom.
- Group presentations have been replaced with video presentations to provide a detailed view on a large screen negating the need to congregate.
- All surfaces are being sanitized, sterilized, and disinfected before and after every class.
- All snacks and water are being available in individually wrapped/bottled packaging.
The main difference between Online and Classroom training is the live model hands-on experience.
The theory portion of the training curriculum for our Classic Online and Classroom training is identical. The Certification level upon completing either course is identical.
The hands-on portion of the Online class would consist of a series of detailed step by step presentations including full setup, gel patch application, isolation, application, and removal process. Our Master Trainer will provide ample time for each student to clarify any details before proceeding to the next presentation. Upon completion of the Online training, our students begin practicing to replicate each of the steps they learned on their own time while having a direct phone line access to our Master Trainer for follow-up questions and to review photos of their work.
In-classroom hands-on portion, a student receives 4 hours of live hands-on model training under the supervision of the Master Trainer.
The Lifetime Membership a student receives upon completing their training is identical for both Online and Classroom training.
As with any new profession, one must first learn to walk before they can run. Eyelash Extension artistry is no different in this regard.
Pearl Lash Classic Training Course and Certification is our beginner level introductory course. Classic training will delve deeply into key fundamentals of lash artistry. Subjects like proper sanitation, client medical and allergy analysis, the anatomy of the eye, client consultation, proper lash maintenance, hair growth cycles, how to conduct a test patch, lash extension removal, choosing the correct products, learning about the adhesives and focusing on isolation are some of the key elements discussed in the theory portion of the Classic Course. The second part of the course is dedicated to the actual Classic lash application process starting with a mannequin and transitioning to a live model. The Classic eyelash extension application is meant to enhance your client’s look while preserving the natural look of the eye. This is achieved by applying a single lash extension to every single natural lash on the client’s eye. The process enhances the natural look, making the lashes look fuller and longer while keeping avoiding creating dramatic changes to your client’s eyes. More information on Pearl Lash Classic Training could be found here.
Pearl Lash Volume Training Course and Certification is our advanced level course targeted towards Classic Certified lash artists with various levels of practical experience. Students signing up for this course must be familiar with all the basic theory described in the Classic course curriculum within the paragraph above. Subjects to be covered in this course include proper fan creation starting from 2D and up, proper curl layering, weight calculation formulas, hybrid sets, the difference between a standard Volume and Russian Volume set and much more. The second part of the course is dedicated to the actual Volume lash application process starting with a mannequin and transitioning to a live model. The Volume eyelash extension application is meant to create dramatic looks that are more prominent and more customizable. There are many techniques, calculations and lash mapping techniques that are associated with completing a Volume set however if performed properly, the final results could be breathtaking. More information on Pearl Lash Volume Training could be found here.
We strongly recommend for all our students to have some real-life eyelash extension working experience before proceeding with Volume Training. If you are just beginning on your journey to becoming a professional lash artist, you are strongly encouraged to attend our Classic Training Class before proceeding to Volume. Classic Training will cover all aspects of eyelash extension artist experience, starting from customer interaction and medical consultation, choosing the right products, forms, and techniques, as well as many other basic requirements that every lash artist must know before indulging in the world of eyelash extension artistry. Please remember that proper education from the beginning will help you become a master at this craft.
All of our In-class Training classes are divided into two portions. The first portion of the class is called the “Theory” portion where our trainer will cover all aspects of lash application techniques, various styles, product options, client consultation, medical consultation, eye anatomy, marketing and walk you step by step through the real-world client experience. Each student is provided with a detailed training manual that will walk them through the theory portion of the class and allow them to take notes and perform several practice assignments. Each student keeps their training manual and is encouraged to reference this guide as they continue to practice after completing the class. The second portion of the class is the “Hands-on” portion. In this portion, each student will require to bring a model (look in the “Do I need to bring a model” section of the FAQ) who will be with you for the second part of the day. During the hands-on portion, all students will be provided with a supply kit to use in class that will include everything needed to start working on your model’s eyelashes. Our trainer will help each student with one on one attention and consult each individually throughout the entire process.
Yes, each student will receive a certificate of completion for each class they successfully complete. The certificate will be provided before you leave the training site in order for each student to take it home rather than wait for it in the mail. Please be advised that the Certificate Pearl Lash Extensions provides is not a state license. Before proceeding to work professionally in the state of Florida, you are required to obtain one of the following licenses: Cosmetologist, Full Specialty, Facialist (Esthetician), RN, NP, or any Medical License. For regulations in other states, please follow this link.
The minimum requirement to attend Pearl Lash training is 16. Students between ages 16 and 18 will be required to have a written and notarized permission letter from their parent or guardian stating that he/she authorizes the student to attend the training.
At Pearl Lash, we believe that there is nothing more valuable in our profession (or possibly life) than time. While most of us are able to take a day off and dedicate to training, spending two days away from your job and asking your model to take a full day off for you might be challenging. Early on, we made a decision to incorporate each of our training courses into a single day. We believe the required technical information and hands-on training does not require more than a day when researching student testimonials. However, if any of our students do not grasp any portion of the class during the full day of training, we have a great option for you… Free Refresher Training!
Pearl Lash has pioneered the first and only Free Refresher option in the SE United States! Coming in for the second day of training is absolutely free! Yes, you heard it right, Free! If you choose to extend your training from a one day to a two day, you are welcome to do so at No Additional Charge!
You may do so right on the spot (during your initial class) or you may attend any of Pearl Lash’s future events, in any city, at any time. The best part is that Free Refreshers are truly Unlimited! You may come in as many times as you like until you feel confident to proceed with live clients! This concept of giving our students an option of how much time they need to spend in class, one day or five days, as well as providing each graduating student a direct line of communication with their instructor while practicing at home, is what has given Pearl Lash an A Rating from the BBB and propelled us to be the Highest Rated Eyelash Extension Academy in Florida!
