Do You Need a License to Be a Lash Technician?

To work at The Lash Lounge,  a relevant certification is required before a stylist begins training. What kind of certification? A cosmetology license, an esthetician license or an eyelash extension specialty license is what you will need if you want to pursue a career inside one of our salons. It’s our goal to make sure our stylists feel comfortable and well-prepared before they begin working with guests.

Note: Some states require certifications, and some do not—so it’s always a good idea to check on what’s required in your area.

How Long Does It Take to Be a Lash Technician?

Depending on the license you choose to acquire (cosmetology or esthetician license), many programs take about a year to complete. However, programs can vary by location and state. Additional training will be required by the salon or employer you go to work for.

The Lash Lounge training program takes approximately 9 (8 hour) days of training and then 4-6 weeks of practice/certification. (If you have previous experience you may be able to complete our certification in a shorter amount of time.)  Our training program includes hands-on coaching as you work to get certified at The Lash Lounge and continues throughout your career at our salons. The best part: training at The Lash Lounge is 100% complimentary for our lash stylists. (It’s awesome, we know!)
