This course holds between 5 - 13 CPD points (all professional bodies are different please check with the one you are registered with for confirmation of points they award for one day courses)
This is one of our top selling beauty courses, due to recommendations and word of mouth we are putting on more and more date choices and venue options to deal with the demand.
The tutors use a wide brand of products Nouveau being one of those included. This is to show that there isn't really much difference in quality only labelling and then ultimately cost of stock to purchase. Eyelash extensions are exciting new products which make your client’s eyelashes appear longer, thicker and very natural.
This course is not brand specific, it is training in the application and technique. This therefore provides students with more options re purchasing stock and equally their insurance. The tutor will go through all of this within your training but if you wish to use another brand they will tell you where to get these however the technique is the same for all brands.
The course fee includes the Materials/products used on the day so no hidden extra's to pay.
We do also offer an alternative of a cluster lash application course which you glue in-between your own lashes which lasts around 3 - 5 days. However if you are looking for a course where the lashes are individually applied to your own individual eye lashes and last between 2 - 3 months then this is the course for you.
This is a fantastic treatment for clients to have before they go away on holiday and for those who are concerned about the length or thickness of their own eyelashes. They can be used to highlight the eyes by using very long, thick, curled, or coloured lashes to create flattering and bold fashion statements.
To take part in this course students are required to work on each other – therefore bare eyelashes are important. If you have eyelash extensions in place please make arrangements to have them removed or bring a model along for the other students to work on.
Please arrive without any eye make up on or bring along, a water based make up remover to be used prior to the practical session commencing- if you wear contact lenses you may wish to bring along glasses.
The Lashes are a professional product made of a soft and naturally curved synthetic material designed to bond to human eyelashes.
Eyelash hair is particularly fine, and therefore the chemicals used are a specially formulated bonding agent, it dries soft, remains flexible and bouncy and most importantly causes no damage to the client’s natural eyelash. However it is very important to note that the Lashes must be removed professionally.
This course is designed to give you the skills you need to start practicing as an Eyelash Technician. We teach with Nouveau lashes and some of the kit ones too for contrasting lash lengths and thickness, so the students learn about creating looks, definition etc. We find that the lash kit lashes are also a better quality lash than the Nouveau lashes.
It is also very beneficial to attend our eyelash tinting and Perming course as the tinting process is beneficial for clients to have at least 24-48 hours prior to lashes being applied to ensure a seamless look for clients with light lashes.
This is dependant on the client, whether they play with their eyes (rub them) etc and the natural growth pattern of their natural lashes and to what length lashes the individual lashes are applied to. Generally it is expected if correctly applied that lashes applied to younger natural lashes with good care by the client may last up to 2-3 months which is the normal life of an eyelash.
All materials are included in the price of this course to use on the day, however if you wish to purchase a kit after training the tutors will be happy to advise you of the best companies to contact to get an affordable kit. We would rather keep the price of the course down and not incude a cheap kit as other companies sometimes do and would rather give you the information where you can order these kits after your training.
Why is our course so popular? This is because the certification we give you allows a student to work with which ever particular brand they choose to purchase as we teach effective and safe application and removal of lashes rather than looking to do a hard sell of a brand.
This then allows students to make their own choice of brand and also means that they are not tied by any particular brand when it comes to their insurance, so should they ever have a problem and a claim is made and they have changed brand they would still be covered.
Our beauty courses offer the opportunity to train in the technical aspects of application of the materials required for your chosen course, without losing valuable practical time trying to sell you products. We show you how to effectively use the product to achieve fantastic results, that will build your client list and your business.
Our certification is not brand specific. This is very important as in some cases you insurance may be invalid if you train with a branded product detailed on your training certificate and you then change to another brand. This also allows us to offer our training courses at a lower cost allowing you to spend what is right for you on the necessary products rather than buying unnecessary and costly equipment.
Some of the beauty courses have kits available to buy on the day enabling you to continue to build your confidence and skills immediately upon your return home.
Your tutor will advise you if a kit is available for your course, when confirming your booking. Some kits may require payment in advance and other may be available for purchase on the training day.

Feedback from Patricia Vassall
The tutor was very welcoming and I totally enjoyed the course from start to finish. Everything about the course the theory and the practical was explained and demonstrated very clearly and I would quite happily book another course or recommend to other people. I am confident that I can complete a full set of individual eyelash extensions due to the tutoring that was provided. Thank you Gateway
Feedback from Taylor
I had just completed my first year at university and with a four month summer holiday I thought (considering beauty treatments as always been something i've loved to watch and have done myself) that learning how to do individual eyelash extensions would be a brilliant skill to learn and build up during my time off and during uni. After research I decided to train with gateway and the whole process of booking my course and contact with my tutor was amazing. I had no problems, all my questions before and during my course were answered and i'm sure if I have a future question Claire will only be more than willing to help me. On the day of my course, the atmosphere was easy going and very comfortable. My tutor was very experienced and skilled in the application of eyelashes which allowed me to complete the course with ease, she is a brilliant teacher! Also, listening to her own experiences of having had her own salon and teaching gave a real insight into the beauty industry. Even though I am hoping to achieve well in my academic studies at uni, the course really sparked my interest into beauty further and I really want to develop more at being a good eyelash technician, in the future hopefully once I have a clientèle base for lashes, I would like to perhaps do a lash tint and lift course and a Shellac nail course through gateway, the training was brilliant.
When I found gateway I was relieved and so happy I made the choice to book with them. The training was rewarding and explained in detail every step, my tutor was very encouraging and I found I picked up the skill with ease on my first attempt. Not only was the process of gateway a huge benefit to myself but also my qualification allows me to gain insurance with any brand of lashes! Unlike other courses I researched where I could only be insured for one brand that the course was promoting. Now I feel confident in the skills i've learnt and happy and assured that I can opt for any brand I wish and still be insured!
Feedback from Andrea Lengova
I liked the course very much. I learned everything I needed and information about the eyelash extension was easy to understand and it covered a wide range of topics. Out tutor was very friendly, helpful and professional. I would definitely recommend Gateway Workshops to my friend and I will be back, too. Thank you!
