This module will teach you how to: <ul> <li>hold your tweezers safely</li> <li>use your tweezers to isolate an eyelash in readiness for treatment</li> <li>to pick up and handle eyelash extensions</li> </ul> You need to spend at least 3 hours isolating a training lash with tweezers in your non-dominant hand. This is the hand you don't write with. Please spend a least 2 hours picking up and handling extensions with tweezers in your dominant hand. This is the hand you write with. It is wise to do this in short bursts rather than all at once. If you diligently complete these tasks before Part 2 of your course where you spend time with Julie, you will be and feel more confident in using your tweezers.
This module covers the anatomy and physiology of the eyes, eyelids and eyelashes. You will learn about their purpose and structure and how the lash growth cycle affects treatment.
This module covers the products and equipment that you need to perform your treatments. As the adhesive is the most critical product in terms of safety and its function, you will learn exactly how it works and essential first aid should the need arise.
This module covers consultations. They are essential to ensure that your client is suitable for treatment at the time. It is the means to gain their informed consent to treat them and for finding out what they want and if it’s achievable. You also need to perform a ‘patch test’ to ensure that they’ll be okay with your products, even if they have been treated elsewhere recently. You will find tools that you can download and use for your business too. These include the Suitability and Consent form, a Service Record and a proforma letter that your clients can use to seek consent from their medical practitioners to treat if needs be.
This module covers how to apply eyelash extensions. It covers the basic and essential elements of styling, mapping and placing the extension on the lash properly.
The module covers eyelash extension removal and you’ll learn 3 techniques. You’ll need to remove extensions if: <ul> <li>a client suffers a reaction after their patch test</li> <li>at the start of an infill for any that are damaged, not poorly attached or grown out</li> <li>during treatment where you apply one that you’re not happy with</li> <li>where they’ve been applied elsewhere and the quality is poor</li> </ul> where they’ve been applied elsewhere and you don’t infill other people’s work so you can account for the quality of the set
This module covers infills. They are routinely done every 2-3 weeks to maintain your clients look. They should have at least 50% of their original treatment in place and how it lasts depends on your client’s eyelash cycle, lifestyle and post treatment care.
This module covers the essential aftercare advice that your clients should follow if they want to enjoy the full benefits of their treatment.
This module covers some basic business and general advice when working with your clients. It covers the questions that Julie sees and hears time and again on Social Media sites and forums. You may find this particularly useful of you are new to the beauty industry.
The module covers the third and final part of your course, being your case study requirements. You can access all the treatment forms that you will need (Suitability and Consent and Service Record) along with your self-reflection template. Once you have submitted your case studies, they will be assessed and to ensure that you have successfully completed your course. You will receive your certificate where you can then treat clients once you have the appropriate level of insurance cover. This course is accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists and Lash Inc. who offer cover to students.
By now, you have completed your online studies and you should also have read your Learning Support Guides. Please complete this knowledge check before attending your part 2 tutored session with Julie.
