I'm so excited to announce that MYSTIQ Lash Academy took home the Comprehensive Curriculum Award at the NALA Awards Gala! I'm so honored to receive this award, which was judged by some of the top lash masters & educators from all over the world.
NALA is an international, non-governmental organization that advocates for professionals in the lash industry. NALA support to the lash industry by establishing much-needed regulatory guidelines, as well as offering Academy Accreditation, Lash Educator Programs, Memberships and International Industry Awards.
The NALA Awards are the Academy Awards of the Lash Industry!
The Comprehensive Curriculum Award is awarded to the lash academy that offers an extremely comprehensive program with great detail to valuable information. An academy that has gone above and beyond the requirements to prepare their students with the best possible education for their new career.
This award reflects the hard work and dedication it takes to create and deliver our Lash Launchpad program. We were up against some of the top educators in the world and are so pleased to be considered among the best of the best in our industry.
When I was building our flagship program, it was so important to me that it be fully comprehensive and leave no question unanswered. I wanted to fight the industry standard of "certify now, figure it out later", ensuring that every student that trains through MYSTIQ Lash Academy is capable and confident before receiving their certification, not after. Most of all, I wanted to create a course that I would happy to take, by including all the information that I wish I was taught when starting out in eyelash extensions.
I knew we had a great program from the amazing feedback received from students. Last year our program won the Best Online Course Curriculum at Lash Open Australia 2020. But to be recognised on the world stage was a suprise and a great honor. This award is a true motivator to continue creating amazing courses that create confident & successful beauty professionals.
In addition to the Comprehensive Curriculum Award, I am so pleased to announce we also took home the Good Earth Award for our extensive Environmental Policy and partership with Terracycle for the Beauty Product Zero Waste Box.
Thank you to everyone involved in the NALA Awards, I look forward to the next year!
