Lash Affair By J. Paris® FAQs

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 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 Lash Affair training?

All students are required to have a valid/active esthetics or cosmetology license in order to attend one of our courses.

What does the training cost?

Our 2-day Classic Lash Certification is $1,600 CAD and our 2-day Volume Lash Certification is $1,600 CAD. This includes The Lash Diary™, a full product kit, and listing on our artist directory. We also provide ongoing mentorship after course completion, 10% off on products and complementary refresher courses for life.

What is the maximum amount of students in each training?

What is Private Mentoring?

Private mentoring is a great choice for beginners or advanced artists alike. Custom tailor an advanced training experience to suit your needs and learning style or spend more time on the basics. Choose from as little as 2 hours, up to 8 hours or try multiple sessions over the course of a few months, for the best possible results. Let us help you become a master artist and be able to charge more for your skills, work more efficiently, and improve your overall design work.
