NALA Accreditation is the 'Michelin Star' of the lash industry.

Many companies have worked very hard to earn NALA Accreditation and they are dedicated to maintaining their elite status.
Not every company claiming to be affiliated with NALA has successfully completed our vetting process.
Below is a list of companies who are not accredited by NALA and are not authorized to use the NALA name or logos.

To go a little further . . .
I'd also like to clear up some confusion about the title 'NALA Certified Educator' that is sometimes seen on a company's website or social media.
There are no 'NALA Instructors' or 'NALA Educators'. These titles are invalid.
NALA offers an Educator's Comprehension Course (Step One of School for Lash Trainers) for aspiring educators. Those educators, once they complete the intensive course, are now recognized as ‘Certified Educators’ and they qualify for educator’s insurance. It shows a lot of professional integrity when an educator chooses to invest in this course. As certified educators they are well-prepared to teach and are granted access to valuable information and resources, but, at this stage, the association has not reviewed their curriculums yet and therefore is unable to vouch for the credibility of their courses.
Completing the Educator's Comprehension Course does not provide them with accreditation, they do not teach a NALA course and they do not own the right to certify students with a NALA certificate.
To earn 'NALA Accreditation’ is a different accolade. Accreditation is evidence that the association has thoroughly reviewed a school's lash curriculums and acknowledges that they meet or exceed the international standards set forth by NALA.
Any lash artist or lash academy who has earned accreditation, and maintains their accreditation status with vital annual updates, is listed on the NALA Global Directory.
NALA Logo(s) and TM
USE OF NALA NAME AND LOGO(s)
No one is permitted to use the NALA company logo. This logo is OUR trademarked logo and only NALA can use it.
No one is permitted to use the NALA Educator's Badge (logo). Although this was initially granted to all participants who completed the NALA ECC (now called NALA School for Lash Trainers Step One) this logo was revoked in 2018.
Anyone wishing to attach the NALA name to their courses must first have them reviewed by the association and earn academy accreditation (Steps Two and Three of NALA SFLT).
No one is permitted to use the title "NALA Certified Educator" (or similar) or to use this badge/logo:
Only academies that have earned NALA Academy Accreditation, and hold active status (have successfully renewed each year), may use the NALA Seal of Accreditation. All officially accredited academies are listed on the NALA Global Directory www.nalamembers.com
Misuse of NALA property will result in legal action. If you believe someone is misusing the NALA name or logo please notify us via email at email@example.com. All reports are kept confidential.
