?What are lash extensions?
Lash extensions are hair-like fibers that are designed to mimic natural lashes. During the lash extension service, false lashes are placed strand-by-strand to achieve longer and fuller lashes. The procedure is painless and take 1-2 hours to complete.
?What is microblading?
Microblading is a tattoo technique where tiny lines are sketched to create fuller eyebrows. This is a semi-permanent procedure that take about 45 minutes from start to finish. There is minimal pain and bleeding involved.
?Is there money in this business?
Yes! The lash extension and microblading business is a billion dollar industry in the beauty world. Certified stylists across America are earning six-figure incomes! What could be better than owning your own business to gain financial freedom and make your own schedule? Becoming a certified lash extension and microblading artist requires little start-up costs and most artists earn back the money they paid for their training in just weeks!
?Are there payment plans available?
Minks does not offer any train now, pay later options. However, we do allow students to make installment payments on their class leading up to their training date. Please be aware that all final balances must be paid on or before your class date.
?Can I really learn everything in just one day?
Absolutely! Minks has a comprehensive, accelerated training format that is perfect for fast-learners. Our one-day courses teach students how to master lash extension and microblading techniques in a short period of time. We've never had a student complain or ask for additional training, EVER! Minks also offers students other training options such as advanced training classes which give students more learning time (two-day, three-day, and four-day classes).
?Are there any options for longer/extended classes?
Yes! Minks offers a wide variety of class options for students to customize their learning experience to fit their budget and schedule.
? Do I need a license?
In most states, you must have a cosmetology or esthetics license or be in a state-approved apprenticeship program to practice lash extensions and have a tattoo or permanent makeup permit/license or be in a state-approved apprenticeship program to practice microblading. For all body sculpting services, most states require a massage therapy, esthetics, or nursing license. Although these are what most states require, STUDENTS MUST RESEARCH THEIR STATE'S REGULATIONS by checking with the Board of Cosmetology and Board of Health. Students must also agree that they either already have their license, or agree to obtain it before they begin servicing clients.
