What to Expect on a Classic & Russian (Combo) Lash Course

Natural-looking Classic lashes and full Russian volume lashes are two of the most popular lash extension types, and a must for any newbie lash tech or budding lash artist. Now, it’s easy for you to learn the basics of both!

In our Classic and Russian volume lash course, we explore the various techniques, methods, tools, and tips for creating the perfect natural and dramatic lashes. 

Being able to create two such different lash types can make you a better lash technician who is ready to take on clients with all sorts of demands. 

Refining your lash skills and understanding cosmetic industry hacks is one of the best things you can do to advance your career in beauty. Join us as we explain everything about what to expect from our Classic and Russian volume lash course!

Why Take A Classic And Russian Lash Course? 

A career in beauty requires a comprehensive understanding of hygiene, health and safety, chemistry, and attention to detail. The right certification can provide you with all of the tools and information you need to take your lash career to sparkling new heights. 

Classic lashes and Russian lashes are very different—but that’s exactly why receiving training for each is such an important decision. 

We offer individual courses for Classic lashes and Russian volume lashes, but taking this combo course will give you everything you need in one go. Double up your skills and start offering a range of lash sets to your eager clients!

Why Specialised Training Is Essential

The more training you receive, the more confidence you’ll have and the more clients you will attract. Taking a Classic and Russian lash course will help you gain a deeper understanding of what makes each of these lash types unique and how to implement them in a way that is professional, gorgeous, and always in alignment with what your clients want. 

Legitimacy is hot! But above all else—it boosts your career and improves your skillset. 

What To Expect From A Classic And Russian Lash Course With BELO

Our Classic and Russian lash course covers a broad range of skills, strategies, and tools for becoming a fully established, successful lash artist. 

From pre-treatment procedures such as setting up client consultations and health and safety practices to adhesive management and volumising techniques, this Classic and Russian lash course leaves no lash unturned so that you can become the BELO babe you were born to be. 

Our Classic and Russian lash course takes a playful yet thorough approach to education so that people from every experience level can learn these important beauty skills. The course includes lessons on:

Pre-treatment procedures 

Every beautiful set of lashes starts off with great preparation and consultation skills. Meeting with clients, discussing options, preparing your station, and practising professional-level health and safety are all necessary for producing beautiful lashes, no matter what kind. 

In this part of our Classic and Russian lash course, we’ll show you how to elevate your lash game with excellent prep and pre-treatment skills. From patch testing to spotting contra-indications and knowing how the lash cycle works, you’ll get to grips with it all.

Classic and Russian lash application techniques

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to classic and Russian volume lash application techniques. Because Classic lashes are applied 1 1 to individual lashes and Russian lashes are applied in fans, there are some tricks, techniques and secrets that you need to learn to master them both. 

Each of these lash types also has distinctive application methods and requires different tools —all of which we’ll break down in simple terms during the course.

Adhesive management

Understanding adhesives is crucial for becoming a great lash artist. Lash glue plays a big role in how eyelash extensions are applied, which is why we focus on comprehensive knowledge about them in the Classic and Russian lash course. 

We’ll discuss adhesive types, storage, application, shelf life, and everything else you need to know about managing this sticky stuff like a seasoned pro. 

Application, isolation, and attachment 

Our Classic and Russian lash course would not be complete without a section on applying the lashes themselves. 

But that’s not all. In this part of the course, we’ll take you on a comprehensive journey through fan creation, application, isolation, and attachment, providing you with a 360-degree perspective on setting lashes from start to finish. Speaking of finish, we’ll also teach you how to remove the lash extensions safely. 

Lash mapping 

Lash mapping, i.e., the art of mapping out a client’s facial and eye structure to create the most aligned and symmetrical eyelash extensions possible, is an important component of our Classic and Russian lash course. 

During your career as a lash artist, you’re likely to encounter a vast range of different faces and bone structures, all of which will need to be accommodated with professional grace. Knowing how to perform lash mapping will help you create more well-proportioned and natural lashes. 

Volumising techniques 

Even though Russian lashes are more known for their voluminous look and feel, understanding the basics of volumising is a useful tool you can apply to all types of lashes going forward. 

This part of the Classic and Russian lash course will teach you how to get the boldest, thickest, and most naturally full-looking lashes imaginable. 

Maintenance and post-treatment aftercare 

Knowing how to maintain your practice, tools, and clients during and after treatments is another central component of any emerging lash artist’s repertoire. We’ll teach you how to set down your station and take care of your tools, and we’ll share tips you can pass on to your clients about lash care, lash health, and maximising retention. 

Business Tips, Pricing Strategies, And Marketing Advice

Our Classic and Russian lash course doesn’t just include information about the practical components of lash artistry. It also features a comprehensive guide to navigating the business side of the beauty industry, empowering new lash techs to take the world by storm.

We’ll help you develop a pricing strategy, marketing position, and professional marketing approach that sets you apart from the crowd and propels your career forward.
