The City

It only made perfect sense to open the very first academy right in the heart of New York City where fashion and beauty is an everyday part of life. While attending JJ Eyelash Academy, consideration is given to our students while visiting New York City. Schedules that are both accommodating and structured so that superior instruction is provided even amongst the many distractions of NYC. After class is out, well that’s your schedule.

The Style

Here in NYC there are many cultural diversities along with artistic expressions of personalities and trends. One’s personal appearance in many cases communicates personality and personal preference without a word being used. Being exposed to this environment will further improve your artistic expressions needed with your clientele. Whether it is the professional look of Wall Street, or the cutting edge of night life, ones definition of beauty and elegance can take on a whole new meaning.
