Meet Your Lash Educators
Tussanee and Paul
For 13 years, Paul and Tussanee ran Integrity Lash, a premier 7-digit lash salon in Southern California. Over the years, Integrity Lash was recognized by Vanity Fair, Los Angeles Magazine, Pasadena Magazine, Brides.com as well as by others as one of the best of SoCal. For four years, Salon Today chose Integrity Lash as one of the Top 200 salons in North America. For the last five years, Paul and Tussanee host the most listened to lash podcast in the world called LashCast (with almost 2 million downloads), as well as host trainings and webinars tailored for lash artists. The twosome aims to educate and uplift lash professionals to become better lash artists and business owners. Paul and Tussanee founded The LASHCONference in 2019, and over the last four years, over 2200 lash artists have attended the event to learn how to grow and market their businesses. Aside from their trainings and events, they also coach lash artists in their coaching program called LashCast Clubhouse. In their unique coaching platform, they teach lash artists how to build a lash business that they can be proud of. When they aren’t running their own events or training, they also speak at trade shows as well as lash conferences all over the world. One day the two hope to retire in a log cabin in Hawaii and raise penguins.
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. She has continuously studied the art and science of eyelashes and was able to be double-certified through Lash Inc. and NALA. After running her salon for 6 years, Michelle ultimately decided to sell it to focus on Paris Lash Academy — a way to share her vast lashing experience with lash artists all around the world. 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. Since launching PLA about 4 years ago in her father’s garage, it has grown exponentially. Education has always been at the forefront of Michelle’s mission, so calling her business an academy is no coincidence. Through PLA, Michelle can teach fellow beauty professionals no matter where they are in their journey and provide private labeling opportunities as well. She loves being able to give back to the industry by being a resource to anyone who needs support or guidance. To stay on top of current beauty trends, Michelle has attended multiple lash and beauty events, including LashCon, and has also been featured on the LashCast podcast. Michelle is a proud mother of two children, loves murder mystery shows, and would love to retire on a farm someday.
All profits from this class will be invested directly back into the lash community! The proceeds fund Paris Pays Your Bills, our program that gives out about $20,000 a month to help lash artists along in their journey. By joining us for this class, you are also supporting your fellow lash artists further their careers!
Due to the limited spots available, this class is non-refundable.
