Whereas Estes, are not legally able to perform chemical services.
Bad news is you will need a license to continue working on lash clients.
Good news is, there is a “grandfathering” period. A pathway to obtain an Eyelash Technician license without going back to school.

Great! You probably won’t have to change a thing.
If your stylist has one of the above licenses to preform lash services, and you are happy with their work, you are all set.

Scope of services for the Eyelash Technician licenseWHAT CAN I DO WITH MY LICENSE?
As of Feb 1, 2018, three types of license holders will be able to perform eyelash services. Each license type has differing scope of services which each stylist is allowed to lawfully preform.
The new Eyelash Technician license will only allow for application and removal of eyelash extensions. For additional services of lashes or brows; seek out a cosmetologist or esthetician.
See chart below for scope of services relating to face & brow treatments.
Just because someone is certified, does not mean they are qualified by the state of Minnesota.
Many supply companies offer certification for potential stylists. Often times the training is very good. Too often the training is rather poor. The amount of training or knowledge received varies widely.
Having a certification is not the same as having a license.
Regardless of credintials, ongoing education and practice is imperative to staying current in the industry.
8 hours of state approved Continued Education is required to renew a license.
