Courtney Buhler — wife, mother of 3, award-winning lash artist, speaker, entrepreneur — and CEO of Sugarlash PRO. A young single mother looking for flexible hours, Courtney became an entrepreneur at 19 years of age. In spite of taking a less than impressive lash course, Courtney’s lash skills were on-point, and her home-based lash business was fully booked within 4 weeks.
A flourishing home-based business grew into a 10-person commercial lash lounge aptly named — Lash Affair (est: 2010) — offering the city’s most opulent lash treatments. Despite the rapid success of Lash Affair, Courtney felt the need to address the poor quality product and education she saw in the lash world. From the desire to see the industry grow and thrive, Sugarlash PRO was born — with a focus not only on providing reputable product and lash education, but also business support and entrepreneurial training. This drive took Sugarlash PRO to win the Business Curriculum Award at NALA 2018.
Today, Courtney speaks at conferences around the world teaching lash skills, judging lash competitions, and working with entrepreneurs to grow vibrant, thriving companies. She’s worked and partnered with League of LashMasters, Lash Wars, Lash Artists International, Lash Summit, and Lash Battle UK to name a few. She has been featured in many publications, including Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Refinery29, Pop Sugar, Byrdie, and Buzzfeed.
