New eyelash trade body launches for UK market

The Lashologist UK, a new trade body for eyelash technicians, has been launched in response to significant growth in the category.

Individual and business memberships are both available, with benefits including best practice training and industry updates. The Lashologist UK will also ensure health and safety requirements are met in salons.

Members will be able to display the association logo to communicate that their business meets The Lashologist standards.

In addition to assisting eyelash businesses, The Lashologist UK also aims to raise the profile of the eyelash technician profession.

Membership costs £59.99 a year, and those who join before February 2013 will receive a £10 discount.

The Lashologist UK is affiliated with the Lashologist Council of America, which was founded five years ago and now has more than 700 members. The UK division is exhibiting at Professional Beauty London from February 23-14 on Stand A34.
