Learning lashes
should be fun!

With a hands on approach to lash classes, you're sure to learn proper technique and foundations to launch your lash career.



As a self taught lash artist Michelle struggled to find information on how to lash. We’ve created a detailed course at a low cost to give you the knowledge you need to launch your career as a lash artist.
All proceeds from this course directly feed into the PLA Foundation, our charity that gives back to lash artists in need.

Let's Lash!

"Hi, I'm Michelle, the founder and CEO of PLA. I'm passionate about teaching lash artists and excited to help you on your journey."

Coming to the scene as a self-taught lash artist in 2008, Michelle Nguyen knew how difficult it could be to truly break into the beauty industry. After running her salon for 6 years in Reno, Michelle ultimately decided to sell it to focus on Paris Lash Academy, or PLA — a way to share her vast lashing experience with lash artists all around the world. Today PLA employee over 50 employees at the PLA headquarters in Reno. She is proud to own multiple lash manufacturers in Vietnam, where she was born and raised on a coffee farm. These manufacturers allow Michelle to give back to her community, providing jobs for over 700 women who would otherwise be working in harsh farming environments.

For the last fourteen years Michelle has practiced and studied eyelash science. Calling it a science may seem simplistic, but by studying the discipline and knowledge associated with eyelash care, Michelle has been able to elevate her expertise, bringing lashing to a new and higher level.
