OWNER | MASTER STYLIST
After studying at Savannah College of Art and Design Laura chose to apply her love for art in the field of beauty. Laura apprenticed under Michelle Parker at Expression in the Sun Salon and became a licensed hairdresser in 1997.
Laura joined the B Street team as a hairdresser in March of 2000 seeking to challenge herself and hone in her hairdressing skills in B Street's intense educational program.
Laura has attended advanced haircutting and color workshops with world renowned hairdressers in Berlin, Los Angeles, New York City, Baltimore, Las Vegas, Charleston and of course the many classes at B Street when we have brought in experts from Sassoon, L'Oreal, Phyto, Bumble & Bumble, All Nutrient, AlterEgo, and Goldwell, to name a few.
Laura also trained in dry haircutting from Albie Mulcahy, John Sahag's artistic director (the man who created dry cutting) Laura's haircutting skills are so personal to each client and beautifully executed. Laura cuts hair with her own special flare, giving her the nickname of B Street Salon's very own Edward Scissorhands.
In 2012 Laura became a partner with B Street's founder Monica McMasters. She continues to be incredibly creative, inspiring and hilarious behind her chair, but also plays an integrated role in the salons day to day operations. Laura's success in her career shows how the love of your craft, determination, and a positive, funny attitude paves the way for a full creative life.
