Eyelash extensions are the false lashes that are applied on natural eyelashes to make them larger and more voluminous. Eyelash extensions training programs are globally renowned. If you live in Colorado and want to become a lash boss, then we will tell you the procedure - how to get a certificate of eyelash extensions.
To get a certificate, you must have a cosmetology or esthetician license from the office of cosmetology and barber. Through this license, you will learn the basics of the beauty industry.
COMPLETE A PROGRAM IN COSMETOLOGY
You have to complete a cosmetology program. Unlike other states, Colorado acknowledges credit hours for licensure. Here you have to complete 60 credit hours. Generally, a program with 60 credit hours results in an associate degree.
APPLY FOR THE LICENSE
Once you have completed the cosmetology program, now it’s time to submit an online application and pay $27 as a fee. The process of application is completed via the Colorado cosmetology licensure portal. This portal is the part of PSI that handles the cosmetology exams. While applying, you must be 16 years old.
After sending the application, you will be informed through email within 48 hours. After receiving the email, do contact PSI. Pay the fee of $71 and schedule your practical exam.
When you will contact PSI, it will provide you the numbers of testing centers for the practical exams. Centers are includes:
- Colorado Springs
- Grand Junction
The duration of the practical exam is 2 hours and 20 minutes. After passing the practical test, now you have to pay $56 and schedule the written examination through PSI. You will be given 2 hours for the written test. You have to pass both exams within one year that starts with the application date. If you fail, your application will expire and you have to submit the application again and pay the fee. After passing both exams, you will immediately get the cosmetology license along with a photo-bearing pocket card.
