With a belief that beauty is unique to every individual and spreading good vibes is contagious, Lauren's approach to hair is intuitive, laid back, creative, and fun! She carries over 15 years experience in the industry, beginning her training with Aveda in Ann Arbor, Michigan and later moving to Chicago where she honed her craft in custom color and hair painting. Eventually she made her way back to Michigan where she has gained a cult following of clients from all over the Midwest craving the low-maintenance "cool girl" looks that Lauren delivers behind the chair. Drawing inspiration from the flower children of the 1960's to the punk rock scene of the 1970's, Lauren loves blending textured edgy cuts with soft lived-in color to create modern effortless hairstyles that leave her guests feeling confident and sexy.
Throughout her career, education has been a driving force, leading Lauren to train with some of the top leaders in the industry, including Kevin Murphy, Wella, and Oribe. So it only seems natural she now lead a talented team of stylists as salon director of Ann Arbor's premiere boutique salon, One One Nine. She recently joined educational team, House of Ivy, with a drive to share her passion for approachable hair painting and dimensional color techniques, and expertise in social media and personal brand marketing.
Lauren is currently accepting new clients Monday-Thursday at ONE ONE NINE in downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan.
She sees clients in a private studio in Chicago bi-monthly.
