Lash-Extensions can be learned by anyone  

bulletA licensed cosmetologist, aesthetician, permanent makeup technician, beautician, nail tech, or any person just wanting to change or add to they're profession.  Just about anyone can become a lash-extension technician.  Lash-Extension techs are not licensed by the government in most states.  You might check with your state but if they do not teach it in a state regulated school. The state will not require a state license. Anyone can do the service who knows how.

How long do lash-extensions last?

bulletLash-Extensions can last up to 90 days. 
Initial full set application then requires Fill-in's or Touch-ups.   
bulletYour natural eyelashes replenishes themselves every 90 days.  If you have an lash-extension attached, to a newly developed eyelash, it can last up to 90 days.  When you attach a lash-extension to a natural eyelash, that has gone thru its natural life cycle, you will loose that lash when the natural eyelash falls out.  You do not know at what stage natural eyelash is in when you attach the lash-extensions.  Natural lashes recycling is why touch ups are necessary every two weeks. This is done by replacing any lashes that might have fallen off and you will need to charge a fee for each lash your replace.  Lash-extensions do not make natural eyelashes fall out, it is a natural occurrence.
bulletEach single synthetic lash is applied to only one single natural lash.  Therefore, the number of lash extensions applied will be limited to the number of accessible natural lashes.
bulletProper application and client education of after care treatment is necessary.  The better they care of their lash-extensions the longer they will lasts.

After care instructions

bulletEducating your client in after care procedures will help with the duration of the lashes. You should inform your customers not to rub eyes, scratch, or pick.  Creams, eye makeup removers, lotions, or cleansers containing glycols or carbonates can relax the glue bond of Lash-Extensions.     
Apply eye cream sparingly and avoid of the lash line area.  Keep the Lash-Extensions clean using baby shampoo. (this will cut the oils from lotions, creams, makeup remover) and is safe and gentle to the eyes.  
bulletYES mascara can be worn. It must be a  Water Soluble mascara.  Remember that constant use of mascara may shorten the life expectancy of your Lash-Extensions. DO NOT USE A "WATERPROOF" MASCARA   IT WILL DISSOLVE THE GLUE BOND THAT HOLDS THE LASHES.

How should I price the procedures?

bullet

Old school pricing was a "set price" 
common price range for a full set of Lash-Extensions would be $100 to $300
Depending on what part of the country they lived in.
Half sets and touch-ups are usually provided for a much smaller fee.
(example $55.00 for touch-up).

 
bullet

NEW PRICING METHOD
Charge by the lash
 NEW FULL SET or TOUCH-UP 

bullet

Price the service by the number of lashes used.  
example: a customer requires 30 lashes in each eye x 2 = 60 lashes total 
(this is usually, all that is required to create the illusion of beauty natural eyelashes.) 

60 lashes x $3.00 per lash = $180.00

bullet

You have established the price it will cost them for replacing each lashes when they come in for their two week touch up ($3.00 each)

bullet

If you charge only a flat fee (example $55.00) for touch up.  Customers will not take care of them and come in with only one or two lashes left from your previous service, expecting you to do a complete service for $55.00.  If you charge by the lash they will take better care of them.

We recommend  that you compare the prices in your area.
Price will vary to the area demand.

How long of an appointment time does it take to apply lash-extensions?
bulletAt first your skills will take you longer to complete the service.  As you improve it is not uncommon to complete a full set of lash-extensions in an hour.  Time schedule is also based on your clients needs or difficulties.
