Eyelash Extension Certification in Louisiana

Beauty is considered incomplete without eyelash extensions. Eyelash extensions create a gorgeous and charming look. The trend is growing very quickly. In this article, we're going to talk about how to get an eyelash extension certificate in Louisiana.


To get the certificate, you need a cosmetology license from the Louisiana Board of Cosmetology. Through this license you will learn the basics of cosmetics and much more.


To meet the educational requirements, you must complete 1500 hours at a board-approved cosmetology school. Here you will learn the techniques to prepare you for a fantastic career. In this school you will learn both the practice and the theory of cosmetology. After you graduate, you can move on to the exams. The school will provide the Board with evidence that you have met all requirements.



You must pass both practical and written National Interstate Council (NIC) exams. You must complete a beauty school education to take the practical exam. However, you are eligible to take the written exam if you complete 1000 hours of beauty school education. The beauty school will help you prepare for the exam.

Exam scores must be at least 75% to qualify for a Louisiana cosmetics license. The Board of Cosmetology administers the NIC exams. It contains two sections:

  1. The National Written Exam in Cosmetology (90 minutes)
  2. The national practical exam in cosmetology (3 hours)

The practical test assesses your ability. After two weeks of the exam you will get the result. The results are sent to the beauty school. It will report directly to the Board of Directors.


After that, you also have to take a state exam. It focuses on the laws and regulations of cosmetics in Louisiana. The Beauty School will help you plan this exam. After passing you will get the license.


To renew the license, you must submit the license renewal form to the board along with the fee. Although there is no continuing education requirement for renewal in Louisiana, you can continue your education at any time. The higher the education, the higher your income will be. The more services you offer, the more customers you can serve.


After you get a cosmetics license, you can take a training course for the eyelash extensions certificate. There are various online training programs and in-person courses.

If you are interested and want to start a career as an eyelash professional in Louisiana, follow the steps above and get certified.
