When asked why she chose a career as a hair stylist, Lauren said, “after working in a salon my junior year of high school, I realized how much I loved the environment and the way stylists got to interact with their guests. I soon learned that I had a natural talent with hair, especially color.”
When asked what she liked most about her career as a stylist, Lauren's response was, “I love when I can make a drastic difference in someone's look in just a couple of hours. I also enjoy getting to know each guest and their families.
When asked why she chose Spa Mizan as a place to work, Lauren said, “I moved here from North Carolina so I didn't know anything about the salons in the area. A friend of mine highly recommended Spa Mizan because of its prestigious reputation in the area”.
