It was truly an amazing experience! I took the basic eyelash extension course from at Lashbou Academy under the guidance of the salon owner, Olesya 😊 Sooooooo I hesitated for a long time and was afraid to change my field of work. But when I decided to go to Olesya, I was pleasantly surprised. She has extensive experience and professional qualifications, and I realized that this is exactly what I needed 😇😇 I was particularly impressed that the training didn't just consist of theory. We were all actively working in practice, our instructor readily answered all our questions, and there was a very friendly atmosphere in the class. Thank you so much 😍
