Don’t Be Fooled By Overpromises!

Your eyelash extension application skills will take time to develop and refine. Before you enter into the fabulous world of Russian Volume Lashes, you first need to master Classics Lashes. Just like in construction, the foundation is important. The foundation determines the quality of the structure above it. If the foundation is imbalanced or weak, the building itself is unsteady. The same goes for both lash techniques - applying single Classic lash extensions and Russian Volume Lashes. You can’t expect to do a perfect set of 6D Volume Lashes without mastering a set of 3D lashes first. Remember, there are many important factors to consider before you pick a lash course, not just the price of it! Choose an eyelash extension course that will help further your career in the lash industry.
