Introducing the ALA Leadership Council

Shaping the Future of Lash Artistry

Sylwia Walus

VP and Head of Education & Product Development

I’m absolutely thrilled that our industry now has an official association – how amazing is that! It’s a warm and friendly space for lash artists of all levels, from Newbies to Masters, to access a wide range of tools and resources, build connections, and be inspired! I feel honored to be a part of the leadership council, and I can’t wait to share my experience and all the amazing things my team at LASHBOX has learned to help our community grow in an inspiring and innovative way.

Vanessa Molica

CEO of The Lash Professional & Founder of The Lash & Sugar Company

This is the community lash artists have been waiting for. It’s an incredible opportunity to engage with other lash leaders, and to foster the type of lash community we all wished we had during our come up.

Shelby Tarleton

Salon Owner & Host of Lash Boss Radio

I love that the ALA is bringing so many resources to new and seasoned lash artists. At the same time, they prioritize community and mental health which is such an impactful contribution to our industry.

Paul & Tussanee Luebbers

Co-Hosts LashCast & Co-Founders LASHCON

Building a positive community and empowering lash artists is at the core of our mission. When we learned about the ALA and their vision, we were thrilled to find that we share similar goals. It is an absolute privilege to collaborate with the ALA to serve our lash community.

Brittany Hawse

Celebrity Lash Artist & Founder of Beauty Books

Being a solo lash artist can be a lonely and overwhelming journey. That’s why I love the idea behind ALA. It provides a community where lash artists can find support and connect with others on the same journey. It’s about turning a solitary venture into a collective experience, where we all grow and thrive together.

ALA is the community I wish I had when I was a beginner lash artist. Being self-taught at lashing with no business background, I struggled to navigate the lash world and running my salon. For the longest time, the lash industry was full of gatekeeping, with limited resources. When I found the ALA and learned what ALA is about, I literally busted out loud, “finally, this is what the lash world desperately needs!” ALA is all about building the community, providing resources, webinars, discounts, and support from multiple educators, and lash brands. ALA at its early stage has attracted many big brands and educators simply because we all see the need for it. I’m honored to join the ALA council to continue to give back to the lash community that built us here at PLA. And I can’t wait for all the positive changes the ALA brings to our wonderful industry!

Kourtnie Warden

Salon Owner & CEO of Lash Essential

I am thrilled to be a part of ALA because they are a community focused on growth and empowerment for the lash world! This is a no-brainer if you are invested in growing your business, or seeking a supportive network invested in your success. If only this was around when I was starting out!

I became part of the ALA because, to me, it represents a family of like-minded individuals. This is not just an association; it’s a community where we support each other, share our experiences, and grow together. Joining the leadership council allows me to be part of something special, something that goes beyond professional collaboration—it’s about connecting on a personal level with fellow lash artists and contributing to our collective success story.

Kimber Jaynes


I am thrilled to join the American Lash Association’s Leadership Council, a community dedicated to supporting lash artists, professionals, and industry regulations. With over a decade of experience growing a successful lash brand, I am eager to contribute valuable insights, fostering growth, and sharing my expertise in business to elevate our industry collectively.

The American Lash Association isn’t just a professional decision; it’s a personal journey of growth and empowerment. This community goes beyond networking – it’s a tight-knit family of Lash Artists, who understand the industry’s ins and outs. They don’t just guide your career; they walk with you, offering invaluable connections and new avenues for lash education. The American Lash Association is where passion meets mentorship, uniting YOU with the best in the country in a collective of support and inspiration. It’s not just an association; it’s YOUR personal key to becoming the best lash artist YOU can be.
