CEO + Founder
Courtney Buhler is a wife, mother of 3, award-winning lash artist, speaker, entrepreneur, and CEO of Sugarlash PRO. Courtney began her lash career as a 19 year old single mom, because she needed a job with flexible hours. In spite of a less than impressive lash course, Courtney’s home-based lash business was fully booked within 4 weeks.
From there, a flourishing home-based business grew into a 10-person commercial lash lounge called Lash Affair (est: 2010), offering the city’s most luxurious lash treatments. Despite the success of Lash Affair, Courtney felt the need to address the poor quality product and education she saw in the lash world. From this desire to see the lash industry grow and thrive, Sugarlash PRO was born—with a focus not only on reputable product and lash education, but also business support and entrepreneurial training.
Three years later, Courtney regularly speaks at conferences around the world teaching lash skills, judging lash competitions, and working with business owners to create healthy, thriving companies. She has worked and partnered with League of LashMasters, Lash Wars, Lash Artists International, Lash Summit, and Lash Battle UK to name a few, and has been honoured to win Lash Inc’s Lash Artist of the year in 2015. She has been featured in many publications, including Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Refinery 29, PopSugar, and Buzzfeed.
Brand Design Manager
Laura is our resident British designer in the Sugarlash PRO super team. She has a bachelor’s degree in Fashion Communication + Design, and worked in London before her love of travelling inspired her to jump across the pond to Canada in 2014. Since being in Canada Laura has worked with many inspiring businesses in the local fashion + beauty scene. She has a flare of working with minimal design, is obsessed with good typography and has OCD about correct formatting! Laura’s favourite colour to wear is black (which she says is technically a tone) and she can’t figure out which she prefers: Starbucks Lattes or English Breakfast Tea.
Sales + Distribution Manager
Born and raised in the beautiful island of Ireland, Siobhan achieved her degree in Hotel, Catering and Business Management. After working in the hospitality industry for over eight years, she decided to emigrate to the coldest part of Canada (Edmonton) in January 2014. After getting over the sheer shock of the face freezing cold air, she began working as the location manager for a renowned local Salon and Spa group, where she managed two of their Edmonton locations. When the opportunity arose to join the Sugarlash PRO team she just knew it was the perfect time to get involved with this fantastic growing business.
Lisa graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Arts in English. Her passion for the fashion and beauty industry began in childhood, making clothes for her stuffed animals out of scraps of cloth and scotch tape. She loves watching films, listening to early 2000s alt rock, and relaxing in the bath! When she’s not creating content for Sugarlash PRO’s social media platforms, she writes a fashion and lifestyle blog called Late and Underdressed.
Erin is our Logistics Lead, and ensures all Sugarlash products get from our warehouse to your home in a timely manner. Erin has over 15 years of fashion retail experience, and is a bit obsessed with organization and tidiness. As such, she's the perfect person to have in charge of our shipping. An avid traveler, Erin's wanderlust has taken her to 4 continents and 16 countries. She has spent time in 35 different cities, including numerous trips to the happiest place on earth, Disneyland. While she has travelled far, nothing brings her more joy than a weekend get away to the mountains. In her spare time, Erin enjoys craft beer, quality Mac and Cheese, going to movies with friends and watching hockey with her dad. She hopes to one day meet an Ewok, but will gladly settle for a pet otter.
