ALA Leadership Councils: How We’re Setting The Highest Standards In Beauty

Every iconic group has a strong leader at the helm. The Plastics had Regina George, Destiny’s Child had Beyonce, and The American Lash Association has an absolutely stacked leadership council helping us secure our place in the beauty world.

True…our council members may not sing like angels or have enviable Y2K fashion. But they are experts in the lashing field that will hook you up with all the tools you need to uphold your professional values and best interests.

There are a number of challenges facing our industry as it grows. But when we empower each other to promote our shared vision as lash professionals, we can push for best practices that support our specialized field instead of stifling it.

Our Leadership Council’s goals are just that. We’re inspiring each member to get involved in shaping and guiding our lash artistry. When we come together as a distinct sector of passionate and knowledgeable professionals, we can help our clients, regulators, the general public, and aspiring artists to understand our training and value our input.

Accreditation Council

Business ethics and social responsibility are at the core of everything we do as beauty experts. Our client’s needs are at the heart of everything, and we’re committed to creating a national brand for lash artists built on the professionalism, integrity, and values our clients and the public expect from us. 

Through your training and experience, you have the skills to be a lash artist. But ALA accreditation isn’t just about validating all the hard work you’ve put in. Our council uses a unique process to acknowledge individuals dedicated to lashing excellence, representing our field beautifully in the minds of clients, industry players, and the general public.

We’re identifying the minimum standards our members should provide their clients and colleagues while defining the values and ethics lash artists should uphold every time they step into their studios. With this approach, we can build a framework for certified lash technicians to become accredited, have their qualifications recognized, and promote our ever-growing field.

Safety & Health Council

Cleaning and proper sanitation aren’t the most exciting part of a lash artist’s day, but they’re absolutely essential to our credibility as professionals. After all, you wouldn’t get a blowout at a salon with hair all over the floor or eat dinner at a table that hasn’t been wiped down.

Our Safety and Health Council is dedicated to identifying the best practices and standards to protect our profession (and our client’s eyes). It’s not just about keeping a clean workspace, we research and share best practices for safe lash application with all our members — a crucial process for all the new products, tools, and techniques hitting the market every month.

We’re also out to increase awareness about concerns related to product ingredients and materials as they surface. You’ll be the first to know if a cheaper glue is causing allergic reactions or which tweezers are actually worth the big bucks!

Professional Standards Council

We don’t want to treat lash artistry as an exclusive club that only the rich and famous can get into. But we do want to establish a nice “dress code” to set the right vibe. 

Lashing is taking the beauty world by storm. But business ethics and social responsibility are WAY more important to us than a paycheck.

You got into lash styling because you love helping women look and feel their absolute best. You love enhancing your client’s natural beauty. And you love that extra bit of confidence it gives them to go out and take on the world.

That’s why our professional standards council is creating a benchmark that all artists should strive to meet to best represent our industry, protect our clients, and keep the lash industry growing strong! By defining a stringent professional code for our community, we can uphold our mission, vision, and passion — all while building the most trusted beauty brand in the world!
