My name is Laura Barrett and I'm a transformational specialist who loves helping woman feel beautiful, conﬁdent and relaxed while doing their hair.
I am a midwestern girl and who began her career in Birmingham, Michigan where I spent two years at Red The Salon. Wanting a change, I moved to Atlanta and worked at Van Michael Salon for over 10 years. In 2016, I decided to become my own boss and put everything I have learned to the test.
Assisting a senior stylist taught me how to do perfect blowouts and fast! No one has time to spend on their hair. So I learned techniques on the thickest hair to do the quickest blowouts. And on the finest hair to take the time to get volume and lift in all the right places.
At Van Michael Salon in Atlanta Georgia, I specialized in haircutting, updos and hair extensions. There I learned to listen to clients needs and wants by using pictures to give the style you are looking for. By also taking classes such as Vidal Sassoon hair cutting, Aveda runway styling , Socap Fusion extensions, Vomor Tape hair extensions helped me develop my skills to work with all types of hair.
Taking many classes in color, balayage and advanced foil techniques. I came to work with schwarzkopf hair color. They have a 10 minute permanent hair color that covers gray hair in the most amazing shades that really hold up in between appointments. The health and condition of your hair is the most important to me. I use the best products to ensure the health of your hair during your color service.
I quickly found a passion for helping women with fine and thinning hair by adding hair extensions. In my career I have learned many types of hair extensions: Fusion, Tape, Beaded Rows, and volumizing top pieces. Choosing the right type of extension that suits the clients needs, with a custom hair color, and cut to blend them in is the most popular service I offer.
When I am not doing hair I also enjoy traveling. I've been lucky to travel to places like Indonesia, Morocco and Spain because of an adventurous sister. But these days my sister has young children and hasn't been traveling as much.
I also enjoy cooking new recipes and going to new restaurants in Atlanta. I could talk food all day!
But the best thing I ever did was adopt a dog!! Over five years ago I found a Jerry, he is the cutest boy who loves to eat sleep and walk... all my favorite things too!
If you have been looking for a hairstylist who can listen and offer up solutions to your fine and thinning hair or you would just like a custom cut and color then I would love to work with you!
