Let's take a moment to get acquainted with our featured lash artist, Crystal Merendon. You can find her showcasing her skills on her Instagram page @crystals_beauty_vanity.
Based in Yakima, Washington, Crystal not only trained in this vibrant city but has also been dedicatedly lashing for two years. Her journey in the beauty industry, particularly in lashing, wasn't without its challenges.
Initially, Crystal grappled with self-doubt, a feeling fueled by the misconception that her chosen profession wasn't a 'real' job. However, her family's unwavering support and the nurturing environment of her salon family helped her to see her true potential and embrace her passion for lashing.
What truly drives Crystal in her craft are her guests. The joy and satisfaction she witnesses in their reactions to her beautiful lash sets are what keep her motivated and inspired daily. Crystal's advice to fellow lash artists is heartfelt and empowering: never give up. She emphasizes the importance of practicing every day, even in the absence of a client. Pushing beyond comfort zones and experimenting with different techniques until finding what resonates personally is key, according to her.
Let's show some love and support for Crystal and her incredible work by visiting her lash page @crystals_beauty_vanity. Her dedication, skill, and inspiring journey truly make her a standout lash artist in the community.
