South Dakota Cosmetology Commission

Eyelash Extensions, Electric File and Microdermabrasion Education

The South Dakota Cosmetology Commission requires education prior to performing eyelash extension services, using a microdermabrasion machine or electric nail file. These are one-time educational requirements. Documentation must be sent to the Commission immediately upon completion of any course. A $35 verification fee must be paid by the licensee to the Commission if the education provider is not approved by the Commission. The providers on the list below are approved providers for South Dakota licensees, so the licensee does not have to pay the $35 verification fee to the Commission.

If you would like to apply for approval as an educator of eyelash extensions, microdermabrasion, or electric nail file, please fill out the Education Certification Course Provider Application (Adobe PDF format) and send to the Commission office with the $100 application fee. Your application will be presented to the Commission for approval at their next regular scheduled meeting. Approval is valid for a one-year period of time.

  • Performing eyelash extensions requires 16 hours of training, which must be completed before performing the service.
  • Performing microdermabrasion requires 16 hours of training, which must be completed before starting the service.
  • Using electric files requires eight hours of training, and licensees must complete the electric file course before using the electric file.
  • If a licensee does not complete the education requirement and continues the service, the license may be suspended or revoked.

The Commission is not responsible for any course dates, rescheduled courses, cancelled courses or fees paid to the provider.
