You can either train in foundation eyelash extensions with us or, if you’re already qualified (with us or anyone else) we’re offering other skills for you to add to your treatments. Whether you want to start a fabulous career in lashes, extend your skills or want to build confidence in the fundamental skills, we can help.

We’re working with training partners who are as passionate about what we do as we are and are based at various locations around the country. Our training partners are committed to the AHFrancis values of excellence, partnership and integrity. Whichever training course you attend, you’ll receive the same quality of training and it’s all delivered with the same AHFrancis ethos of helping you be the best you can.

By training with one of our training partners, we want you to invest in yourself and leave confident in your new skill and more passionate about lashes than ever. Because we care, we’re there to support you after your training too.

So, meet our lovely training partners and find the right course for you.

“Training with Karen was a great experience, even before meeting and just conversations on the phone and email no query was to great or small. The training itself was very knowledgeably in a warm friendly and no pressure environment. I started my day very nervous and left feeling confident very excited to start my journey with a new treatment. I can highly recommend Karen and AHFrancis training courses as they truly are a company that care and are passionate about their products and helping new talent, sharing their knowledge and passion to others. A great company and glad I too am now a part of AHFrancis” Dawn Dewar, Bury St Edmunds
