Eyelash Extension Training has been added to the Gene Juarez Academy Cosmetology program. Starting in October 2019, all new students will receive this certificate-based training within their kit and program.
While some Seattle-based schools offer eyelash extension courses separately or within an Esthetics program, Gene Juarez Academy is one of the only Seattle schools to add it to a standard 1600-hour Cosmetology program. Students will be working with locally-owned products and training from London Brows & Lashes , the same premier product line used by Gene Juarez Salons and Spas.
“With the increasing demand for eyelash extension services in the beauty industry, we want to ensure our students are graduating with a greater earning potential,” General Manager Mike McNamee said. “It’s a skill that more employers are looking for and the additional certificate training can be extremely costly for licensed professionals.”
And the stats don’t lie. As of May 3, 2019, the average annual pay for an Eyelash Extension Artist in Seattle, WA is $69,688 a year. This is significantly more than the reported Cosmetologist salary in the state of Washington. (According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics)
