As a college student Laura knew a desk and a chair just were not for her. One day a friend of hers asked if she would join her on an open house at a beauty school that was right next-door to Laura’s college; and upon entering the school Laura knew she needed to be apart of the industry. She finished her final semester and graduated with a degree in Fine Arts and Business Administration, and the same day walked over to the beauty school and enrolled.
Laura has been behind the chair for 12 years now, a platform artist for Babe Hair for 3 years, and currently a National Redken Artist since 2016. She travels coast to coast educating salon professionals within Hair Color, Design, Finishing, and Business.
Her passion for this industry and elevating others is profound, especially helping other stylists build their skills and their books via social media. 5 years ago Laura made the decision to move 900 miles away to a dream location and coastal beach city. She relied on social media alone to gain clients, retain clients, build trust and education, and get more referrals than ever before; and that’s what she wants for stylists! Full books and never ending referrals, using a far reach and free tools like social media.
