With ADFEE, you will be given the proper resources and education in order to ensure your clients that you are doing everything to protect the integrity of their natural lashes. Start building trust with your clientele by becoming Damage-Free® Certified.

Let the world know that YOUR salon offers DAMAGE-FREE® EYELASH EXTENSIONS.
The Damage-Free® Certification Exam is a one-on-one life in-person exam. Exams are not done online or through photographs or videos. It may be required for you to travel to become certified.
The exam is exactly 2 hours. You must have applied at least 40 eyelash extensions per eye. You must use the entire two hours.
The stylist must demonstrate each of the ADFEE 6 Standards of Eyelash Extension Application in order to Pass. The Exam is Pass or fail. If any of the 6 standards are not met in the exam, one cannot pass the exam and it must be retaken.
ALL of the following in this section are required to apply for the Damage-Free® Certification Exam.
You must show proof of a currently license in cosmetology or esthetics or whatever your state/country/providence requires for you to legally do eyelash extensions.
Whether it is a course through ADFEE or through another institution, you must provide a certificate from a training institution proving that you have had prior training in eyelash extensions.
The Damage-Free® Certification exam is not something to rush into. We recommend that you have at least 1 year of eyelash extension experience before attempting the exam. The exam, if not passed, is non-refundable, and another exam must be purchased and administered to receive certification. Not all stylists pass the exam. Please be confident in your work if you are considering purchasing an exam .
