Investing in Education

Investing in Education

Eyelash extensions are the latest and greatest trend in the beauty industry. Not to mention the eyelash extension market is the most profitable and fastest growing in both the cosmetology and esthetics industry. Experienced lash techs are making an estimated $75k - $100k+ a year. And that's just doing lashes alone. So, what is holding licensed professionals back from being trained? Money.

Just like in all fields, for a quality education, you're going to have to invest a good sum of money. And while investing a good amount of money on a new skill may seem daunting and overwhelming consider this;

You'll make your money back FAST

You can do as little as 3 clients a day, for 3 hours a day and make as much as a full time employee. Lets break it down... Keep in mind this is low-balling it. These estimate don't include the price of full sets, experienced lash artists offering volume charge more per fill, and we're not including tips!

3 fill appointments X $50 = $150 per day 

$150 X 5 days a week = $750

$750 X 4 weeks = $3000

Full time lash artists do up to 8 appointments a day, charging more per client, and receive tips... you do the math! 

How much is your time worth?

Lets compare a different profession that makes on average the same as an experienced lash artist. Lets take instance, a Chiropractor. On average a Chiropractor makes $80k a year, same as some experienced lash artists.

A lash artist will pay roughly $1,400 for a quality, two day training class. After she's certified she can begin working immediately and likely have made her money back from that initial investment in a matter of months. A Chiropractor will spend four years on pre-medical, undergraduate, college education. Then go on to an accredited chiropractic college where four to five years of professional study are the standard. So after the $40k for the undergrad, up to $100k for the chiropractic college, upward of 9 years spent in school... well you get the point. 

Its rare to find a profession where the initial start up cost is so minimal and the payout so great. 

It's about so much more than making great money.


All experienced lash artists will agree that the look on a clients face after getting lashes for the first time is priceless! Being in an industry that makes women feel beautiful and confident is truly an amazing experience. Hard working lash artists will make great money but they'll also help women feel good about themselves and that's a really good combo, don't you think?

Before making any investment its important to do your research, and the same rule applies to choosing a training program. Look into all your options and then decide what will be most worth your time and money. Does the program get good reviews? Will you receive ongoing support and education? Are the trainers skilled and knowledgeable? Is the product something you'll continue to use? Don't be afraid to reach out and ask lash artists about their training experience!

In an industry with as much growth as eyelash extensions the sky is the limit! To learn more about Borboleta's training program click here >>
