Learn Basic + Advanced techniques for eyelash extensions (Russian Volume!)

Everything you need to know about lash extensions, including Nadia Afanaseva’s Russian Volume techniques, is included in our two-part workshop. Choose Eye Design University for expert training in all things beauty!

Eye Design University now offers students the option to learn our Basic and Advanced (Russian Volume) techniques for eyelash extensions in the same class!

When you enroll in Basic Lash Training, a two-day course, you now have the option to add a third day, which is completely devoted to Advanced Volume Training. 

There is no better place to learn Eyelash Extensions than with us! Nadia Afanaseva, Eye Design founder and Master Technician, is credited with bringing Russian Volume techniques to the United States. She is innovative, passionate, results-oriented and completely devoted to her students! Nadia’s goal is to share her techniques with artists and aspiring artists who can help bring her life-changing treatments to women worldwide.

Class is held one-on-one in a private setting to maximize learning. This allows us to share in-depth information and hold intensive training sessions so that students are ready to start working as soon as they leave!

Through one-on-one instruction and hands-on learning, students attending Eye Design University’s lash class (or classes!) will learn everything needed to know to start their own business or expand their already-existing business. 

You are already interested in eyelash extensions, so you probably know that they are becoming increasingly popular in the beauty industry and mainstream throughout the entire world! By learning Eye Design’s lash techniques, you will set yourself apart from other artists while joining an industry worth more than $500 billion dollars. (In July 2019, Business Insider reported that beauty was worth $532 billion USD.)


Our Basic Lash Training course is perfect for beauty professionals who want to grow their clientele base and increase their income by introducing a new service to their menu! In fact, fulltime eyelash artists can earn more than $200,000 per year.

$300 (the average cost of a procedure) x 15 (clients per week) = $4,500 weekly and $234,000 annually! (This does not include gratuities.)

During Basic Lash Training (the first two days of class), students learn all the essentials:

  • Safety + disinfection
  • Product selection
  • One-by-one classic lash application
  • Instructions for using different adhesives
  • Lash growth cycle
  • Eye + facial anatomy
  • Lash styling
  • Tweezer selection for classic + Volume techniques
  • Removal techniques
  • More!

Basic Lash Training also includes a live-model demo by our instructor, as well as two live models for student practice (with step-by-step instructions from the instructor)! Our class instructors are ALWAYS current technicians from Eye Design, who will guide you throughout the entire process. We share every detail with you; when it comes to lash extensions, even the smallest details are crucial!
