How NALA Serves The Lash Industry

NALA currently serves over 800 members, in 27 countries and 3 languages. We offer support, information, and regulatory recommendations to an unregulated industry. Lash professionals can earn accreditation as either a service provider or as a training academy.

NALA Accredited Membership

This accolade is evidence that a professional lash artist meets, or exceeds, NALA standards in their studio.

In an industry with little or no regulations when it comes to lash certifications, becoming an accredited NALA Member proves professional integrity and skills. 

Lash artists can apply to be recognized as a NALA Accredited Member. This process consists of a thorough review of their abilities, daily practices, studio policies, workplace set up, disinfection protocols and staff prerequisites. Anyone who earned their lash license or certification through a lash academy that has been accredited by NALA may contact their academy director to gain access to a specialized application and exclusive membership discounts.

Once approved, our Accredited Members are bound to the NALA Professional GuidelinesCode of Ethics and Decontamination Guide and they are listed on the NALA Global Directory.

NALA Educator Training & Certification

NALA School for Lash Trainers Educator training & Certification offers over 40 educational modules filled with extremely valuable content to help educators create a quality curriculum, understand their legal obligations, be aware of their responsibilities as a lash educator, be adept in workplace safety, and gain access to up-to-date accurate information about disinfection and health & safety concerns.

Upon successful completion of this three day intensive course, participants earn their Educator Certificate from NALA.

NALA Accredited Academy

The NALA Seal of Accreditation is the 'Michelin Star' of the lash industry. Recognized as one of the highest accolades a lash academy can earn, our seal is a symbol of educational excellence and professional credibility.

The NALA Seal of Accreditation is NOT easy to earn. In fact, no academy has passed the application on their first attempt. Of course, we work closely with all of our applicants to guide them through the necessary changes they need to make in order to earn accreditation status.

NALA Accreditation cannot simply be purchased. Each academy that has successfully earned accredited status through the association has made changes to their practices and curriculums in order to meet our requirements and become officially accredited by NALA.

Once officially accredited, they are listed on the NALA Global Directory. 

Educator Programs

NALA SFLT has a variety of online programs to suit your professional needs and individual business goals.
