“So glad I decided to take the eyelash course while enrolled as a student at DSI. It is a great skill I can now to add to my current esthetics practice. The instructor is very detailed and provides good one on one interaction with each student. The manual provided also offers all the information you need to lash any type of client. I have referred back to this manual many times when lashing.  I would recommend the class to any students or professionals looking to learn or even advance their practices.” Logan

“As a student of the basic aesthetician program I could not be happier. The program here provided a comprehensive education and the best teachers. The faculty and staff care about their student’s success and making sure they understand the materials they are learning. The school provides hands-on opportunities to practice the skills they are learning in the classroom. I am so thankful for the opportunity to study with such great faculty. I also had the opportunity to study eyelash extensions while I was here. The class was great, the teacher was amazing and I now have another skill to use at work, allowing me to bring in more clients in my personal business.”
