Established in 2008 by globally recognised industry pioneer, Joy Crossingham, Brisbane Lashes was one of the very first salons to open in Australia to specialise solely in Eyelash Extensions. Our Master Lash Stylists have not only applied thousands of sets of eyelash extensions over the years, but have also won numerous local and international awards for their skill and amazing standard of work.
Hi, I’m Joy Crossingham!
My lash career began back in 2008 as a solo stylist operating from home after taking a short course in eyelash extensions whilst on holiday in Thailand visiting my family.
After many years of hard work, I’m proud to be able to say that “me” has become “we” and I now lead a team of 15 awesome humans who help me run businesses across multiple sectors within the lash industry from salon services, to education, e-commerce and software solutions.
Over the years I have won numerous local and international awards for my lash work, spoken at countless conferences, my Academy was crowned the 2019 ABIA “Educator of the Year” and my business was also officially recognised as one of the Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies in all of Australia by the AFR, to name just a few achievements.
That being said, my greatest satisfaction comes from teaching the next generation of lash superstars and seeing my clients to fulfil their lash addiction!
If you become a Brisbane Lashes client I can promise you that not only will your artist be of the highest standard and skill, but at Brisbane Lashes you can be assured we never take shortcuts in anything we do and will only ever apply eyelash extensions that are 100% safe and non-damaging.
Hope to see you soon! Joy x
We’re a small, tightknit team of awesome humans who live and breathe the #lashlife.
