Eyelash extensions are a popular service that extends each individual eyelash by either a single or multiple lashes per natural eyelash. It is a highly specialized skill that takes time, repeated practice, proper knowledge, and training. The instructor, Kimberly Rierson, has been a lash artist for over 7 years. She has been an instructor for 3 years, and she continually refines and adds to her teaching methods. Kimberly’s proven philosophy is to teach lash artists to walk before they run. Meaning, she believes in a solid foundation in classic lashing before graduating to advanced styling and volume lash artistry. She has designed her courses around her success of teaching students in this manner. Currently, there are 3 levels of certifications she offers through Concepts.
