exceptional Beauty artists to serve you

For years, Lauren grew up in her grandmother’s hair salon in Louisiana, and has since then decided to make a career of her own following in her grandma's footsteps of over 50 years in the beauty industry. She has attended an Aveda Institute in Lafayette, Louisiana where she received her certification as a cosmetologist. She has 9+ years of behind the chair experience and advanced education to provide you with amazing services. Because continuing her education is extremely important to Lauren as a stylist, she works often to pursue the latest styles and new techniques in her industry. She has attended hair, skin, and makeup courses over time and has received excellent extended training and certifications. Lauren loves working with the camera as well and has branched out to work on a number of commercial style photo/video shoots including clients like Noosa Yoghurt, Associates in Family Medicine, Lifesize, and Ballet Wyoming. She has worked on  over 250 weddings during her career and her wedding work has been featured by Rocky Mountain Bride, Couture Colorado, Style Me Pretty, and The Knot, Colorado Weddings Magazine, Borrowed & Blue, Two Bright Lights', and Burnett's Boards. She has worked on models for the runway at New York's Fashion Week, Denver Fashion Week, and Massif Fashion Week. She was just welcomed to the Loreal Professionnel Artistic Team and is in training this year! She absolutely loves leading her talented team and growing our salon to service more of your needs! She hopes you find a new salon "home" with us!

Quote: “As a service provider in the beauty industry, it is essential to grow daily through continued education and new challenges so that I will be the best hairdresser I can be for my clients. I like to go above and beyond what is required to provide a great service that stands out. Being a stylist is more about just doing hair, makeup, or providing any other beauty service, its about personal connection! It’s not about getting clients in and out as quick as possible, it's about offering outstanding customer service and professionalism, giving you the 'look' that you desire, and building a long lasting relationship so that you are comfortable with me and the salon.” ~Lauren Shea

"Passion is the difference between having a job and having a career.
Do what you love, love what you do."

Hi, I'm Jordyn! I've always loved every aspect of the beauty industry. Making people feel confident and beautiful is the best part about my job.

I love continuing my education any chance I can get and keeping up on the latest trends and styles. I have been blessed with the opportunity to work on runway models in New York's Fashion Week in the spring of 2017 as well as Denver Massif Fashion Week 2017. These amazing opportunities have helped me grow and love my career even more than I already do.

Weddings, eyelash extensions, and balayage colors are my passion! I always look forward to helping someone achieve a new look and transformation.

By the age of three I knew I wanted to be involved in the beauty industry! I can remember watching my grandmother curling her hair, applying her makeup, and thinking I want to do that! As the years went on I would experiment playing with family and friend's hair, and began to really love the art of cosmetology and was always wanting to learn more! It wasn't until after graduating from the Aveda Institute of Denver, that I realized there was so much more to this industry than beauty, there was something great about the fact that you could create courage and confidence within someone, just by simply doing their hair! 

Growing up, I moved around quite a bit, living in seven different states never allowed me to have a hometown! Although I am not truly a native anywhere, I am proud to call Colorado home, and happy to have found a salon that feels like home!

Originally from Arizona, I grew up with a pencil in my hand. I found a love for vintage in my college years, and a passion for weddings soon after. Now, I am a full fledged cosmetologist with an Associates of Art under my belt. I strive to make every guest feel special and appreciated, I believe in quality over quantity, and want to build lasting friendships with lots of laughter. The best part of life is that we are all constant students, I'm always looking for new styles and techniques to enrich my guests' experience, and sharpen my skills. My passion for perfection and my eye for aesthetic, are my tools to make the world sparkle a little brighter.
