Lash Extension Academy FAQ

What is the difference between Classic and Volume Lash Training?

Classic refers to the process of carefully applying one lash extension to one natural lash. Volume is an advanced technique that involves creating handmade fans of 2 or more very thin, lightweight lashes to adhere one natural lash. Volume can provide a fuller, fluffier appearance for clients.

If you are a first-time lash artist we require you attend our classic lash training. If you are proficient at the classic technique, we can help you determine if you're ready to attend our volume training.


What are the requirements to take a Lash Affair training?
