The class is well organized and structured. With the close eye of Tram, I was doing extensions on a real model 1/2 way through day 1 and by the end of day 2, left with the tools, skills and confidence to coninue on my own. Tram is a great teacher! She breaks down every aspect and helps you to master each skill, from tweezer work to removal, before moving on. I seriously cannot say enough good things about this experience

Lash Pilot Academy has changed my lash game & career! I took my first Classic Lashing Foundation course with the instructor, Tram. As a beginner, I was hesitant and on the verge of giving up. However, Lash Pilot trained me to become better at the art of lashes and not to give up. I’ve learned a lot from Tram, and I appreciated that she offers a one-day course that is super hands-on. I found the course beneficial, insightful, and their teaching technique are real tips from a real professional. I was able to use double tweezers within the first half-hour of the class. The course price is a little more pricey than other places, but the value and unlimited support made it all worth it. The course is very informative, and I highly recommended it.
