“We are excited to not only be the largest lash training provider in the world, but to also be the first to address the needs of the industry in providing this training and mentoring program to lash artists and salons alike,” said Dave Jaynes, CEO of Borboleta Beauty. “We have heard and seen time and again our partner salons and owners frustrated by the lack of qualified artists that are salon ready. This is the first extended hands-on training and mentoring program for lash artists that prepares them to provide high quality services in a professional salon environment. The Academy also provides Borboleta partner salons an invaluable resource for finding and hiring qualified lash artists.”
In the Borboleta Lash Academy, students will receive personalized mentoring from top educators who will guide students through the ins and outs of lash artistry. The academy courses allow students at every level, from those just beginning to seasoned artists, to develop a wide variety of skill sets that will not only raise the bar of quality and professionalism within the lashing industry, but also provide students the necessary experience to be salon ready.
“Borboleta Beauty is known for the highest quality products and training and we are so excited to bring another level of leadership and innovation to the industry,” said Kim Jaynes, Founder of Borboleta Beauty. “This new offering allows us to guide artists from those just beginning their lashing journey to the well-versed and accomplished artists and everyone in between to be the very best that they can be through mentorship and guidance from the trade’s top educators and artists.”
The Borboleta Lash Academy will be held at the Borboleta Beauty headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah. Students will participate in an extensive program based on their needs and skill set. The courses will range from an 8-week long course to abbreviated offerings based on a student’s skill level and experience. The first academy course will begin mid-October and has already been filled with students eager to gain experience through this extensive and one-of-a-kind program. Only those students who meet the necessary standard of excellence will be able to receive the Academy’s illustrious certification.
“The lash industry is growing rapidly and we have created the Borboleta Lash Academy as a comprehensive mentorship program to foster a positive learning experience with real world application that builds confidence and success for both artists and their salons,” said Kelly Clark, a member of Borboleta’s Board of Education.
