Now that you have learned the skills, it's time to put them into practice. Here are some steps to take after finishing your lash class:
- Practice, practice, practice! Set aside time to practice on family and friends to perfect your technique. It could be 30 minutes on fan makings or isolation, this will help prepare you for real services.
