The decision to take on a new skill or career path can be both exciting and daunting at the same time. In addition, it can be overwhelming and stressful when deciding where to get your training. It is important to understand that a craft is only mastered through deliberate practice and continuing education. Trends and techniques may change with time, but understanding and acquiring knowledge in theoretical education is the foundation of all skills and is relevant no matter the technique.
WHY YOU SHOULD TRAIN WITH US
We offer training in small groups at our Toronto location and one to one training at both Toronto and Markham locations. Our training is a cumulation of all the information obtained through educational courses, workshops, and seminars, as well as our personal day to day experiences working with clients. We are continually upgrading our own skill sets by taking courses each year to expand our knowledge. The information we present is not only educational but very practical, offering tidbits of valuable tips to assist in making the learning curve a lot easier. Because we've been around for the past 14 years, we also know a thing or two about what NOT to do, and are happily eager to save you from making the same mistakes.
All workshops include 6 months of after-class support.
Currently, we offer the following workshops:
EYELASH EXTENSIONS BASIC TRAINING - CLASSIC STYLE + THEORY - 1.5 DAYS $1200
Our basic eyelash extension training is divided into three parts so that students get the most out of their practical classroom time. A starter kit, which allows for the application of 30 sets is included.
Part 1 teaches the theory behind the application of the technique and familiarizes students on important topics such as infection control, risk management, and troubleshooting. Students will acquire knowledge on the safety and science of the art of applying Eyelash Extensions. The video will also introduce technique so that students are familiar with hand and body positioning so that they are better prepared for the classroom portion of the training. An online test at the end of the video module will test the student's knowledge, and areas, where students are having difficulty understanding, will be discussed in detail during class.
Part 2 involves a full day of classroom practical learning on mannequins, and on a live model. Design and proper use of different lengths, curls and weight of lashes will be covered. Afterwards, students are encouraged to go home and practice.
Part 3 Once students have a chance to absorb this new skill and practice at home, he or she will encounter some challenges. We believe that is very difficult to absorb 100% of information during class, therefore continuing support is offered after classroom training. Students have the option to book 2 separate shadowing sessions with any of the stylists at Pretty In The City Inc. (based on availability) after the class to assist in troubleshooting their own challenges. Students also have 6 months of ongoing support with the trainer.
