We have the inside scoop on an eyelash extension service that will give you an eye-catching look for the holiday season – plus, for budding beauticians, there’s some info on courses to learn the skills yourself.
Where to get great lashes
If you’re keen for longer lashes – particularly in time for all those Christmas, New Year and CNY gatherings – then add Eyelash Pro to your little black book. Open since 2013, the centre in TST aims to provide a “safe, professional and enjoyable” eyelash extension experience. The team says: “We want you to feel great, day and night, whatever the occasion.”
The services available cover both the Japanese style of extensions, and the Camellia style (volume lashes). There are special colourful designs available, too. In short, the professional technicians know the trends and can advise you accordingly.
Pictured here is just one example of the kind of look you can get with a visit to Eyelash Pro.
Eyelash Pro is at 10/F, Daily House, 35-37 Haiphong Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon.
Where to learn the art
Not only is it possible to get your lashes lengthened in Hong Kong at a place like Eyelash Pro; you can even train to be a professional eyelash stylist here!
The Hong Kong Lash Association (HKLA) is an Approved Centre of Training Qualifications UK (TQUK) with the mission of promoting the correct concept of eyelash extension and services to the general public.
Among the courses on offer is the TQUK Certificate in Eyelash Extension Services (Level 2 – equivalent to second level in the British qualifications framework). There’s also a more general “Discover Eyelash Extension” one-hour course, which is suitable for people with no related experience who want to try their hand at eyelash extensions and learn more about the industry. It’s HK$300, and includes free use of tools.
The HKLA is also a place where current stylists can swap knowledge and share skills.
