Maximum of 6 in a class, keeping it small ensuring individual attention.
On your course day you will be working in partners with another student so please ensure that eyelash extensions and makeup are removed before attending your course.
No models are needed as you will work on each other applying eyelashes throughout the day and all eyelashes will be removed before you leave.
Dolls heads do not compare to real eyelashes and we strongly feel your understanding of this treatment is enhanced by working on a real person.
Please note that in fairness to all students, you will be required to be practiced on. If you can not be practiced on due to a medical condition, we will need a doctors note when booking.
However if you cannot be worked on for a specific reason you CAN still attend - however it is your responsibility to bring a model with you to be worked on. If you intend to bring a model with you please make sure you request this on your booking form (in the notes section when you book) prior to attending your course, so the tutor is aware ahead of the course and can advise you if this is possible due to limited space.
Please note if you are unable to be worked on and you bring a model with you they will be required to be worked on by other students on the day (as they are replacing you) and you will be required to work on another students and not your model as the other students need to team up and have a partner and be worked on. Please note that your model is unable to carry out any treatments themselves with students, unless they pay to attend and learn the course with you.
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)
During this intensive training course you will learn about the safe application of semi- permanent volume eyelash extensions, in addition to completing practical work and assessment to achieve the safe application of semi-permanent volume eyelashes.
Individual eyelash extensions have been popular in the UK since the early 2000’s however more recently they have become even more popular with clients who want their natural eyelashes to appear longer, curlier and thicker.
This course is designed to give you the skills you need to start practicing as a Volume Eyelash Technician.
The tutors use a wide brand of products and brands, 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.
Eyelash extensions have been around since the late 1990s, used mostly for fashion magazines and catwalks. However, since the early 2000s, many salons have offered this service in the UK. Eyebrow extensions are also now available in the UK.
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.
Each individual eyelash extension has been made professionally out of soft curved synthetic material which has been designed to bond to human eyelashes and last up to 6 weeks.
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.
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 you can bring a model with you or arrange with the tutor that one is required. When you book there is a note section in the booking form so you can mention this here ahead of your class.
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 or contact solution.
No, you will be working on each other so please arrive with no eye makeup on. The eyelashes applied will be removed before the end of the class.
The class runs with 2 or more people booked on and you can book 24 hours before the start date if you wish. If you cannot be worked on due to medical reasons, please email a doctor’s letter regarding your medical issue to your tutor after booking.
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 different well known brand of lashes and some of the kit 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 many of the other well known brands of lashes available.
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.
Every year we train thousands of therapists, from Champneys Health Resort, large professional salons like Dior, leading hotels like the Mandarin Oriental Spa at the Knightsbridge 5 star hotel, the Sanctuary, John Lewis Spa, Bobbi Brown, Channel 4 as well as training therapists and complete beginners who come to us at one of our many venues.
This is dependent 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. 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 include a cheap kit as other companies sometimes do and would rather give you the information on where you can order these kits after your training.
Do I need to bring a model?
You do not need to take a model with you as you will work with another student on the day of training, if you do not wish to be worked on we also have head dummies and also can on request provide models if required. The class runs with 2 or more people booked on and you can book 24 hours before the start date if you wish. If you do not wish to be worked on due to medical reasons, sometimes the tutor can provide one if advised beforehand.
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.

When you book with us you have peace of mind we have a proven track record - established in 1998 and accredited by the top professional bodies.
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 later and use with their clients.
Importantly as we teach effective and safe methods with products our tutors love to use but do not insist on the students who attend to have to continue with any one given brand afterwards to gain insurance and use what they have learned with us professionally.
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 if a claim is made and they have changed brand, they would still be covered (please check this with your insurance provider) giving you a lot more flexibility.
This also means you are not tied into buying brands from us which is very restrictive which only makes the school you are buying them from money but does not benefit you. This means the certificate you gain with us gives you the freedom to use what ever brand you wish, the tutors can guide you to good products but ultimately it is your choice!

Feedback from Sian Miller
Tutor feedback: Rhian is without a doubt the best tutor I have ever had. From the second we walked in, she was so warm and welcoming and immediately had everyone feeling relaxed and at ease. Even little touches such as providing comfortable slippers for us all for the day were really lovely and gave it a much more relaxed, personal feel. Rhian was incredibly patient with everyone and went out of her way to ensure we all received the best training and support throughout the day. Her training was incredibly thorough - it was evident that she really knew what she was talking about and genuinely cared about teaching us everything she knew to ensure we went away with the knowledge of best practice and care for clients and ourselves. I felt daunted at the start by the skill required for lashes but Rhian was such a fantastic teacher that all worries disappeared and I really enjoyed learning and practicing under her, she encouraged us at every step and gave constructive feedback so that by the end of the day I genuinely felt confident and excited to get started. Based on the training I was given by Rhian I will 100% book with her for any future courses, she was a brilliant tutor and a lovely person which made for a fantastic 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!
