Hi, I’m Crystal Thomas and I have been a licensed cosmetologist since 2005. I was interested in expanding my background in the cosmetology field so I began working full-time at a Dermatology & Cosmetic practice, while continuing to work part-time at a salon. After several months in the dermatology practice, I realized I missed providing direct service to clients. I really enjoyed helping a client to feel her best.
I met women who wanted to look and feel years younger. Countless women had tried different ways to recapture the way their eyelashes had looked before. Many of them had tried serums that promised to re-grow eyelashes, some experienced poor results, and some experienced undesirable side effects. This sparked my interest to research options and products that could maximize the appearance of eyelashes without undesirable side effects. My thorough research has led me to believe that the best product line on the market is Xtreme Lashes® and it’s AMPLIF®eye™ lash and brow fortifier.
I returned full-time to the Cosmetology profession and took my first training class in October of 2011. When I returned home I started scheduling models and got right to work putting lashes on everyone. By the end of November I had over 27 very happy and energized models. This was the beginning of my new craft. In February 2012, I returned to complete and obtain my certification as an Xtreme Lashes Stylist. Ill continue share my love for lashes and help others regain their youthful look by offering clients this unique and highly beneficial service.
Xtreme Lashes offers intense training, high performance standards, and a line of cosmetic products to enhance and compliment its lashes. I am proud of being named an Xtreme Lash Stylist of the month back in January 2013!
In June 2013, I attended the Advanced Lash Training which allowed me to obtain even more material and skill sets so I can be the best Lash Stylist that I can be.
What does the future hold? I have always wanted to be a teacher. Being able to teach what I love would be a dream come true. So as I continue to gain experience my next goal would be to become an Xtreme Lashes Trainer and share the love of the craft with others.
Hi, I’m Ashley Dombrowski and I’m an esthetician at Styles By Crystal. I have always had a passion for all things beauty which is what made me decide to go to school. I studied advanced esthetics at Brown Aveda Institute and graduated in August of 2020. I received my advanced esthetics license in November of 2020.
I specialize in brows and lashes. I am certified in lash extensions with Xtreme Lashes. I am also certified with Elleebana in lash lifts, brow lamination and brow henna. I am eager to continue training to add to my list of services in the future! That’s one of my favorite things about being in this industry. The opportunities are endless and there is always room to grow.
I decided to pursue a career in the beauty industry because helping people feel confident in themselves brings me so much joy and is something I am truly passionate about. Seeing a client’s face light up when they look in the mirror after a service is by far my favorite thing about this career.
I am so happy to have a career in this industry and to be a part of the amazing team here at Styles by Crystal. Thank you to everyone who has supported me through this journey and thank you to Crystal for being such great role models.
Hi my name is Sarah Prayner and I’m an esthetician here at Styles by Crystal. I received my license in Esthetics from Brown Aveda Institute in March 2021. I’ve always had a passion for helping people and making people feel their most confident and best self. That’s why I love the beauty industry because you are able to accomplish that while making connections with people and making them feel beautiful.
I specialize in waxing, lash lifts, brow lamination, dermaplane, and lash extensions. It's so exciting how popular eyelash extensions have gotten over the past few years and how they continue to get more and more popular everyday. I also am very passionate about skin care as well and how important it is to take care of your skin. I am always looking to learn as much as I can so I cannot wait to see what’s in store for the future. I’m looking forward to what’s to come and excited to continue to expand my knowledge and grow as an esthetician.
The beauty industry is so great because it’s always changing and evolving so it gives us the opportunity to constantly learn and grow. Making people feel confident in themselves and building that rapport with people and meeting people is also another reason why I pursue this career. It brings me so much joy when a client is happy with my work and leaves smiling. My favorite thing about the career is knowing I made someone else feel good and more confident in themselves which is a great feeling.
I’m ecstatic to be a part of this amazing team here at Styles by Crystal. Having a job in this industry is just truly rewarding everyday and that puts a smile on my face. I am so blessed to have amazing support from friends and family. Thank you to everyone who has helped me get to this point and who will continue to watch me grow and support me through my journey. I especially thank Crystal, and Ashley for helping me and being great people to look up to in this industry.
