Past student testimonials
I recently completed LASH by Francesca’s advanced course and it has really made a difference to my technique. It has also given me the confidence to use different lashes and use more advanced styles on my clients. As a result the feedback I have had from my clients has been amazing, they love how natural looking and long lasting they are! I cannot recommend Francesca’s courses enough and I think her technique and expertise is the best in the industry. Sam Gregory
