Gina Foster, owner of Urban Lash – a premier eyelash extension studio in Baton Rouge, LA – started noticing the damaged natural lashes and poorly-applied lash extensions on her new clients, some of whom were in pain. At first, she thought it was the fault of the lash technicians. But after some research, she found that the training they received were lacking in many ways. 

Most of the training classes available were from academies in other states who would come in for a day or two, teach a class, and return only for the next course, which was often months away. These instructors were not on ground to assist their students who had difficulty with their technique and still needed hands-on work and supervision. 


Gina saw the need for a better local training course so that struggling students could easily return to for help or extra lessons without having to pay for an entire course again. There had to be an instructor to coach each student every step of the way on the journey to perfection. Gina chose to be that lash coach and established LA Lash Academy.



Local - Our goal is to ensure that individuals with a passion for eyelashes will not only be able to learn and get certified, but also have a nearby place they can turn to for continued guidance and support.

Experienced Educators - We will provide you with the knowledge and skillset to become a master lash specialist. She bases her curriculum off her experience, updated knowledge of the lash industry from attending yearly conferences, and feedback from those who have taken other courses and were left unsatisfied. 


Hourly Sessions - Is there a specific skill you need help with? We offer affordable hourly sessions after the initial group training, to help you perfect your technique. This allows you one-on-one time with an educator without having to repeat the entire course again. Hourly sessions are unheard of in lash trainings across the world. 


Small Classes - Our group classes accommodate a max of 4 students. The more attention you get, the easier, quicker and more efficiently you learn.
