Lara/Master Stylist

In 2008, I began my cosmetology career attending Pivot Point International Academy. Shortly after graduating I started the apprenticeship program at Pascal pour Elle. Here, I received hands-on experience learning advanced cutting techniques eventually earning my chair on the salon floor. Since then, my goal has been to create a relaxed environment for my clientele, making them feel comfortable sharing ideas and collaborating on styles that fit their personality. I stay inspired by following celebrity hairstylists through social media, scrolling Pinterest, sneaking in a few recipe pins, brainstorming with fellow coworkers on how to introduce the latest trends and reading Sheridan Road magazine, my guilty pleasure. Some of my favorite styles are long to short hair transformations, lobs and of course, layers.  In addition to being a HALOCOUTURE Halo Specialist, I am certified in various smoothing treatments. To name a few, they include: Keratin Complex, Brazilian Blowout and Global Keratin.  These skills have allowed me to elevate any look; making it more desirable and attainable for my client. I believe that everyone is unique and our hair is a way of visually expressing ourselves.
