Do I Need a License To Do Eyelash Extensions?

Do you have to be licensed to do lashes? Eyelash extension state requirements vary. In most states a license is required to do eyelash extensions. EBL does not give lash tech licenses—this is something you will receive for attending school within your state. If your state requires a license, we do require verification of the license in order to take an eyelash training. Once you have verified that you have the proper licensing we would love to have you in class.

When you take an EBL Course you will receive an eyelash certification. This certifies you to do eyelash extensions, stating that you have passed our class.

This information is made to the best of our knowledge. It is recommended to call your state and verify if you need an eyelash extension license. If you’re just getting started we would love to have you in a Classic Lash Training or Volume Lash Training. Shop EBL Lashes for all the supplies you need as a lash technician, or contact us if you have any other questions!
