"I am thankful that Levi Shephard has helped make this industry safer by regulating things. Without that, it would be a very risky and dangerous industry."

Ashley P.

"I'm so happy that there is finally an association that is helping to regulate the industry. We definitely need standards! I love how the president of NALA, Levi, is experienced in the industry - this ensures that we are implementing realistic standards and focus on the important aspects of the industry. She has a wealth of knowledge and is always there to provide guidance and encouragement for both business and lashes. NALA is beneficial for clients, students and educators. Clients are able to use the site to look for quality and accredited Lash Artists. Students are able to find training facilities that are accredited to ensure that they receive the quality training. Educators are able to get certified to ensure they have a strong foundation to provide to their students. We can all benefit from the workshops and blogs on the site as well! I highly recommend joining NALA!"
