Eyelash Extension Certification in Florida

If you live in Florida and want to learn how to apply eyelash extensions, then you've come to the right place. Eyelash stylist is an amazing profession that allows you to be your own boss. In this article, we are going to talk about the specific requirements needed to obtain the Florida Eyelash Extension Professional Application Certificate.


Before you want to become an eyelash stylist in Florida, you must obtain a cosmetics license. You can get these from the Board of Cosmetology in Florida. To obtain the license, you must be at least 16 years old or have a high school diploma.


From a cosmetology school you have to complete a program of 1200 hours. After attending this school, you can earn an associate degree or diploma/certificate in cosmetology.


Upon completion of the cosmetics program, you must apply to the Department of Business and Occupational Regulation for an initial license. You have to pay a fee of 78 USD and submit it together with the application. This can also be done online.


If your application is approved, you will receive a notification from Pearson VUE. Now you can arrange the time and date for the written cosmetology exam. The exam consists of two parts:

  1. Written (theory) exam
  2. Written clinical exam

In both sections there are 65 multiple choice questions that you have to answer within two hours. After you pass both the academic and clinical exams, Pearson VUE notifies the department and you get your Florida cosmetology license.


You must renew the cosmetic license when it expires. A fee of $55 must be paid for this. You also need at least 16 continuing education units.


After you get the cosmetics license, you can attend eyelash extension training courses. There are numerous beauty schools in Florida. Most include a two-day course based on practical knowledge. You will be introduced step by step to the art of eyelash extensions. If you complete the training you will have gained a lot of experience in the field of eyelash extensions. In the courses you will also learn how to successfully run your own salon.

If you live in Florida, fulfilling your dream of becoming a self-employed eyelash stylist is totally doable. There are already more than 7000 beauty salons in Florida. The demand for eyelash extensions is enormous. After receiving the certificate, you have many more chances to make a name for yourself as an eyelash stylist.
