About US

The Lash & Brow Academy USA is the premier source of professional products, advanced training, and lash & brow services in the country. Within the “LABA” brick and mortar academy in beautiful Encino, California , you will find the LABA Academy and LABApro Atelier.

The LABA academy

The LABA Academy provides training and certification for licensed cosmetologists and estheticians seeking to advance their careers in eyelash extensions and brow artistry. Founded in 2008, LABA has trained thousands of successful beauty professionals in these skill sets and protocols. As the exclusive distributor and training entity in California for NovaLash Eyelash Extensions, this advanced learning academy is the single source of Novalash professional products and certification in the state. Novalash is widely recognized as the number one eyelash extension company in the world.  Courses are offered within the flagship academy and also throughout the state of California at LABApro Affiliate Salons. These courses lead to acquisition of advanced skills in lash & brow artistry and many lead to certification if mastered by the student. The academy’s desire is to foster lifelong learning and growth for beauty professionals, including the consistent and progressive development of existing and new skill sets. Philosophically, the academy sees cosmetologists & estheticians that graduate from a accredited school, get their license and enter the workforce as a new beauty professional comparable to recipients of “undergraduate” degrees equivalent to an AA (two year college program). The next important step is to acquire advanced skills and develop ongoing educational and development plans.

LABA has a team of trained and certified LABA Trainers deployed all over the state of California. These highly qualified specialists are successful lash artists and when they are not training for LABA, they run flourishing lash & brow businesses. In addition to the expansive course offering at The LABA Academy in Encino, courses are offered throughout the state in various locations, including at LABApro Affiliate Salons. Affiliates Salons act as “unplugged” LABA academies and are owned and operated by certified LABA trainers.


Tucked beautifully inside the LABA Academy is the LABApro Atelier. This is a lash & brow salon environment that provides premier eyelash & brow services for loyal and discerning clients from all over the world. It is also the place professional lash & brow artists go to get their own services done! (Special pricing consideration is given to licensed cosmetologists, estheticians and certified lash & brow artists). LABApro Atelier Lash Artists are licensed cosmetologists or estheticians and certified in Novalash Eyelash Extensions including Classic, American Volume, and London Volume. They are also expert brow and makeup artists.
