💯 #repost @learn.lash.repeat_academy Being a “Certified” Lash Stylist does NOT mean that the person is licensed. The difference between beauty professional license and certification is huge.
License •Legal designation of professional status granted by state authorities
•State defines task, function, educational requirements and scope of the practice
•Standards and practices must be completed
•Proficiency must be demonstrated by passing written and practical state testing
•Texas requires 320 hours to complete education
Certification •A voluntary process to teach
•Certification is provided by private organizations or companies.
•There is no oversight as to the viability, efficacy of the curriculum and skills being taught for certification process.
•Time necessary to complete certification course varies, certification can be completed in as little as 8 hours
Being licensed is for public safety. State of Texas requires anyone who performs eyelash extension services to be a licensed professional, usually a cosmetologist or esthetician. However, Texas now has “specialty” licensure program for lash technicians.
So, before you decide where to go for your eyelash extensions training, be sure to ask that important question... Will I be LICENSED in the state of Texas upon completion of this program?
Remember if the price is too good to be true be it lash training or lash services it probably is... someone who has received proper training and licensing will not charge inexpensive... its quality over quantity.
After all, you wouldn’t let an unlicensed professional give you beauty services right? #learnlashrepeattrainingacademy #certificatevslicense #cosmetologyschool #beautyschool #dallas
