Hello Insta 😁 though it would be fun to let you in on who I am, and what fires 🔥me up!
Hi 👋🏻 I’m Laura also known as “the mermaid” to some 🧜🏻♀️. I get told on the regular I look like some famous redheaded actress, or a cartoon character. It honestly makes my day when someone goes out of their way to pay a compliment, even if I don’t think I look anything like that person. Its rare to have a perfect stranger tell you something nice, and I think it is a practice we should all embody. It just feels good to spread positivity.
I am an avid animal lover, and mother of two adorable fur baby felines, Mary Jane and Ben. I would have a farm of animals if I had the resources.
I LOVE to workout and challenge my mind 🧠 and body 🏃🏼♀️. I consider all movement, a form of meditation. Wether it be yoga, lifting heavy weights, or running, I use that time to clear my mind and turn my focus inward.
I have been in the industry for 16 years, although It feels like yesterday that I began my career as a hairdresser. I knew I wanted to be a hairdresser by the age of 9. 👉🏼Seriously I found a journal from my childhood stating “when I grow up I want to be a hairdresser or a singer”. 😂I guess the singing thing wasn’t in the stars for me, lol.
I grew up in Canada 🇨🇦 until the age of 14, then relocated to Indianapolis, IN with my family. I am NOT a US citizen, however I do have a green card. Everyone who finds this out thinks that it is hilarious. 👽 Yes, I am a legal alien.
After 7 years of being in the salon, I decided to begin my journey of educating. I became a national educator for @ , which gave me the opportunity to travel the country and inspire other stylists. I love meeting likeminded souls who share the same passion for what we do.
Over the past year I have chosen to 💫evolve, yet again, and add another notch to my belt.
I am on a mission to empower hairdressers to create an amazing life with a thriving career. I founded Elevated Creatives, and began to coach and mentor other stylists. (Continued in comments...)
