Welcome to LashPRO Accelerator ™! The first course of its kind to combine education in Branding, Marketing, Business skills, Lashing and Self-care into one intensive online program.
You’ve been trained in lash artistry, but no one taught you about the other side of the industry. You have too few clients (or too many), and you want to know how to attract and retain the right clientele for you. You want to learn how to use social media to grow your lash business, to build a brand that is uniquely yours, to effectively manage scheduling, pricing, and employees, but most importantly, to become the most proficient lash artist and successful business woman you can be.
HOW DOES LASHPRO ACCELERATOR WORK?
Lash PRO Accelerator is a 35-week online course designed for trained lash artists who are looking to transform their skills as business owners. Every week for the duration of the course, students receive 1-2 video modules focused around one of our five business fundamentals: Branding, Marketing, Lash Skill, Business Skill, and Self Care. Industry experts including founder and CEO Courtney Buhler, our Sugarlash PRO Educators, a cosmetic chemist, chiropractor, mindfulness expert, allergist, ophthalmologist, and a photographer provide in-depth information on a variety of health, lashing, and business topics untouched by conventional lash courses. Each month students have the opportunity to participate in Live Sessions with Courtney and an educator or guest speaker, and will also have access to our private student forum where they can meet other artists, and participate in peer to peer and mentor support.

“I learned both Classic and Volume lashing through LashPRO Academy, and was mentored in business from Courtney. I raised my prices, rebranded my business, and because of the skill level I attained through training, I was sought out by many customers for lash services and I even started lash training! Now I have moved to a beautiful space and I am booked solid. I was honored to win Lash Inc’s Lash Artist of the Year in 2015, and placed in the Lash Festival Competition thanks to the guidance I received from the Academy. I can’t thank Courtney enough.”
