Course benefits

Eyelash extensions have become increasingly popular over the last few years. Ladies are desiring longer and thicker lashes without the hassle of applying make-up or strip lashes every day. The application of individual lashes onto the lash line creates a fuller, natural-looking effect and enhances the appearance of the eyes, and last several weeks before a "fill" is needed. During the course, you will learn the application and removal process of individual lashes, the type of lash suitable for each client. This will depend on eye-shape and existing natural lashes. Also contraindications and precautions for applying lashes.

As you may be aware, when a client is happy with your result, they will return regularly ( every 2-3 weeks) for your services in order to maintain their new beautiful appearance. This become a lucrative service. Once you are competent in applying eyelash extensions, you may also want to enhance your skill-set as a Lash Technician by taking my Russian Volume training.

Course structure

Volume is my advanced education course. This is for experienced lash artists only who feel confident and comfortable in their classic lash applications skills. This is a 2 day course, from 9am – 6pm each day. You will first learn the theory of the treatment. We will take a short break for launch. We will spend the majority of the day working on practical skills.

Course benefits

With the Volume technique you can actually apply MORE lashes, using LESS weight. This allows you to create a much more full and lush lash appearance, especially for those who do not have many natural lashes. This is is not a type of lash, but rather, a technique. You will be using specific lash diameters for your client's needs. As with classic technique, you will learn to apply hand made “fan” of thinner lashes. These are hand-crafted and customized to be the perfect weight for each single natural lash.

In additional to the benefits of using less weight, customizing the lash lengths, and controlling the amount of weight for each lash, this volume technique requires less glue. That's right! More lashes, and less glue! That's because with the volume technique you will be taught how to wrap the adhesive around each natural lash. Thus, all the applied lash extensions support each other. Also, using less adhesive means you will have a lower chance of causing glue allergy and irritation.

This volume technique service takes about 30 minutes longer than the classic. Plus, when you become more experienced and the time it takes you to apply lashes is cut in half, you will be able to charge much more for this service than for classic lashes.

With volume lashes, clients are pleased that they can go longer in between fills. The volume extensions are lighter than natural lashes, which makes long-term wear even more plausible. Salons and spas offering this service are increasing revenue significantly. Clients are even happier with these SOFT, full lashes that look and feel very natural.

  • ""I like how Dr. Cutler is very calm and gentle with the Botox and Dermal filler procedure. I didn't feel any pain. The place is very beautiful and the receptionist is friendly.""

  • "My procedure was a permanent makeup (eyeliner) with Julia. We conversed about my preference and the end result I wanted to achieve. She Accomplished the look I was hoping for!!
    I was delighted with the outcome immediately! Her technique & skills were precise & gentle.
    I've had this procedure done in the past (other spas) & had severe puffiness & swelling and not quite the outcome I wanted. Not so with Julia.
    Slight swelling only. I definitely would recommend Julia to others."

  • "Love my lashes!!! Julia is the most AMAZING lash artist out in the San Diego area. After struggling to find a lash artist who could provide volume and consistency, I found Julia. My lashes always last 3 weeks or longer and never look to sparse between sets! Quality lashes and quick fills! By far, most highly recommended lash tech"
    Gabrielle O.
  • "Upon entering, I was enchanted with the pristine, non clinical, yet professional look of SDIM. Beautiful, clean, tranquil turquoise and white. Julia was calm, professional and answered my 100 questions. I was afraid of a needle near my eyes for the permanent eyeliner and her demeanor relaxed all of my fears. This is the day after and so far, so good!
    I would recommend Julia for her precision and ability to calm the terrified!"
    Cat V.
  • "I have to say he is one of the best doctors out there. He actually listens to what I have to say. He also does his best to fix all the problems I come to him for. I feel like he knows what he is talking about as apposed to some other doctors I have had who don't know what I'm talking about. He also takes his time and is very thorough. Most doctors I have had don't spend a lot of time in the room. He does. He actually wants to fix the problem and not get through his patients as fast as he can. I'm definitely going back and I'm going to recommend him to all of my friends."
    Kimberly L.
  • "I have had my eyelashes done multiple times by Julia and she is great! She is very fast and every time it turns out great! I have gotten my lashes done many time in the past and this is hands down my favorite place! The spa is super clean and professional and offer many other services! I would highly recommend it!"
    Kaylyn G.
  • "SDIM is a special business. Dr. Cutler has made an inviting space here for San Diegans to feel at home. My experience included Dr. Cutler staying after hours for me and went above and beyond the call of duty in the name of good business while supporting excellent customer satisfaction. For those lucky enough to live in Poway or in the general San Diego area, I highly recommend giving this business a chance to earn your business and I believe you'll be their next five-star review. Their prices seem to be most competitive in town too, I came all the way from downtown after vetting many other practices in San Diego and am glad I took the time to research and make the drive to Poway to visit San Diego Integrative Medicine."
