Flirt Custom Lash Studio has been around longer than eyelash extensions were a “thing”, and longgggg before every one out there was offering a “lash course”. When lashes first came to Toronto you had to leave the province in order to learn the art of lashes and it was taken very seriously. Courses were at least 2 days in length taught by a Master Lash Artist… included a theory test AND! a practical exam. Expectations were high and if the student did not pass either of the tests then they could not graduate and would not receive their certification. It didn’t matter that you paid for the course, if expectations were not met then you were given one more chance to write the exams or you had to take the course again. Like anything, soon lash courses became about money, courses are now being offered by Lash Suppliers. Meaning they SELL lash products (adhesive, lashes, patches, tools etc), their only goal is to teach you the basics and then push you to buy their products. All products except for adhesive are very much the same – the only difference is the private label on it. The industry was no longer about the art of lashing, proper application, disinfection and eye health. Flirt Custom knew it was time to do something about this, enter THE ACADEMY.
Lash Course:The Academy
The Academy was created with ONE intention: to create lash artists that will an asset to the industry. We are NOT lash suppliers, we do not SELL lash products…at all, we do not teach the courses with the agenda of selling products to students. Classic Lash Courses are 2 days in length, include a theory and a practical exam. We are the only course that keeps class sizes small, no larger than 3 students so each student is given the attention they need. The second day includes 2 lash models done with the supervision of the instructor, other courses offer one lash model at the end of the second day and you are only given a few hours. Classic Lashes courses are where every lash artist begins their journey and so it needs to be done correctly – starting off with bad habits never leads to long term success.

Brampton Eyelash Extensions
Flirt Custom Lash Studio Brampton has reopened! Part of the FCL locations this is a private studio in Brampton with one recliner for service. Brampton was closed a few years ago but has reopened due to popular demand.
Brampton Lash Studio
You said there were no reputable lash studios and Brampton so we listened and reopened. Run with the same level of disinfection control as the 2 larger studios in Burlington and Toronto (Queen West). Brampton still offers the best price in the GTA for Classics, Hybrids and Volumes. Bookings can be done though the site or by calling 1.855.721.7108
10 years ago home based lash studios is where most went to have their lashes done, someone knew someone and you were referred to them to have your lash extensions done. Time went on, and those in the industry that were lashing from home opened lash salons/lash studios. As eyelash extensions became more popular, the Health Board of Ontario started monitoring them – as they should. Infection from the eyes can spread quickly and if proper disinfection sanitation practices are not in place then it can spread like wild fire. Now there are people taking courses in lashes, starting them in their homes and they are not being watched by any governing body. You have to count on the lash artist and the people living in the home of the lash artist to ensure that proper disinfection is taking place. Meaning not only the lash artist needs to make sure to wash their hands and all surfaces but the people living there also must guarantee they are washing their hands frequently and wiping surfaces after use.
A home based lash studio typically does not have access to hospital grade disinfection liquids like ACCEL or any of the other products listed on the Government of Canada site for disinfection of surfaces and tools for the fight against Co-VID 19. Most of these home based businesses do not have a business licence nor a business number needed to set up an account for the purchase of graded disinfection liquids.
If you have been referred to a home based business and you are set on going to see them to have your lashes done. Ask to see their business licence, ask to see their tool bath (lash language for the container holding the ACCEL or another hospital grade disinfection liquid). It’s always been important to ensure that disinfection is top priority but now with the battle against Coronavirus it’s more important than ever.

Infection Control Certificate
Licensed (meaning not a home based) Eyelash Extension Studios have always been some of the cleanest environments to be in if run correctly. Detailed lists of daily, hourly and in between procedures are in place to keep everyone (clients AND artists) safe from infection. Pink Eye (conjunctivitis) is a sneaky virus and can jump from surfaces to humans. FCL has been in business for 13 years with a client base of 2500 and has NEVER had a case of Pink Eye – that is a big deal, like a REALLY big deal. Every year FCL Management takes a course in Infection Control to brush up on practices and to keep up with any possible changes to protocol. The course is not mandatory from the Health Board of Ontario however to ensure the safety of clients and artists alike it’s taken every year.
WHO – Covid-19 Certificate
Thennnnnnn Corona Virus (Covid-19) arrived and stopped the world in it’s tracks, a virus like no one had ever seen before. FCL shut it’s doors at all studios before instructed to do so, we didn’t know anything about it and we certainly didn’t want to put anyone’s health at risk. As time went on after closure and all of Canada was in isolation, FCL used the time to take a weeks long course in infection control for Covid-19 specifically from the best source there is: WHO (WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION) ensuring the safety of everyone both working and coming to have their lashes done. Procedures for this virus specifically required changes for clients as well as the studio, understanding how the virus develops and carries has allowed us to ensure everyone’s safely without a doubt. Keeping it clean so we can help you keep it cute!
