When asked why she chose a career as a hair stylist, Lauren said, “after working in a salon my junior year of high school, I realized how much I loved the environment and the way stylists got to interact with their guests. I soon learned that I had a natural talent with hair, especially color.
When asked what she liked most about her career as a stylist, Lauren's response was, “I love when I can make a drastic difference in someone's look in just a couple of hours. I also enjoy getting to know each guest and their families.
When asked why she chose Spa Mizan as a place to work, Lauren said, “I moved here from North Carolina so I didn't know anything about the salons in the area. A friend of mine highly recommended Spa Mizan because of its prestigious reputation in the area”.
In her free time, Lauren enjoys being with her family. We stay busy with outdoor and indoor activities.
We love to travel and I love dance which I have studied for most of my life.
