Have you ever wondered what would be involved in taking an online lash course or becoming a lash tech? You aren’t alone! Up-and-coming beauticians of all backgrounds have turned their sights to mastering this fabulous skill.
After all, having long, luscious lashes has become one of the most highly sought-after treatments in the modern beauty industry. Thought to be a symbol of youth, eyelash enhancements have been a popular practice since Ancient Roman times – our UK neighbours offer a little history lesson on how lash tricks and trends have grown in popularity over the years.
Products such as false eyelashes and mascara have become an easy and accessible way to lengthen your lashes with minimal intervention. But what if you are looking to offer your clients something a little more permanent? Some lash longevity? Then training in lash tech skills is the way to go!
What does a lash technician do?
A lash tech tends to the physical and aesthetic needs of eyelashes. With lash treatments rapidly rising in popularity, it is the job of a lash tech to create a comfortable environment for their client, offering them the space to express their wants and needs and then tailoring the treatment to fit those needs. Some of the most popular treatments include:
- Eyelash extensions – this involves applying synthetic lash applications to the lash line, which when completed should merge seamlessly with the natural lashes and create a more defined, lengthened look.
- Eyelash lift and tint – a lift and tint treatment will uplift and enhance your natural lashes, perfect for those looking for a more natural vibe as opposed to a full glamour look.
- Hybrid lashes – combining the best of both worlds, lash extension combines with volume technique to create the ultimate defined lashes.
As well as being equipped with all the latest treatments, lash technicians will also advise on the health and maintenance of eyelashes, how to support their natural strength and growth and keep them in the best shape they can be between treatments.
How do I become a lash technician?
Here at New Zealand Beauty School, we have a range of professionally tailored short beauty courses to give you the best start in a career as an eyelash technician. Our lash tech courses include a Certificate in Eyelash Extensions and Certificate in Eyelash Lift and Tint, giving you the freedom to find where your beauty passions lie.
All of our courses are online, which gives you the flexibility to learn and explore your new craft in the familiar environment of home, and maybe you can even rope some family and friends in to be your beauty guinea pigs!
How much will it cost me?
At New Zealand Beauty School, we recognise that paying for a course in one big chunk is not always possible. Our priority is that you get the most out of your training without fretting over the financials, and therefore offer tuition fee plans to make investing in your future that little bit more manageable.
Whether you choose our interest-free payment plan, paying $25-$35 per week, or take advantage of our course discount when you pay the entire course costs upfront, there is always someone on hand to talk you through any questions you might have. So never hesitate to get in touch – we would love to hear from you!
One of the biggest expenses of becoming a lash technician is investing in the materials and equipment needed for the job. But you don’t need to worry about that, as we send you your very own beauty kit with everything you will need to get you started on your beauty adventure.
What are the benefits of becoming a lash technician?
Being a lash technician puts you at the forefront of a customer’s confidence. Whether working a big event such as a wedding or function or just giving someone that boost of self-confidence to get them through the working week, you can be sure that your work is bringing a smile to someone’s face. You will literally be opening their eyes to a world in which self-care and love are put first.
Beauty treatments of any kind often allow us to reconnect with ourselves, grounding us back in the present when our minds may be wandering to other things. Beauty as an industry is incredibly sociable and works closely with its clients to ensure creative excellence.
Sounds pretty good?
