About Lauren Porter

Growing up my nickname in High School was "Hair Walters" (my maiden name). I had hair, on top of more hair, on top of more hair! I had  thick curly hair but really didn't know what to do with it. I was never taught how to work with my natural curl or how to safely wear it straight. (I even remember in High School ironing my hair with a clothes iron, on an ironing board to try to straighten it- pre flat irons, not even kidding.) I tried beauty school after being exhausted with college and  21 years later, I still love my job.

I believe that everyone can feel confident when they have the hair that works for them. I love consulting with clients about their hair, their lifestyle and what is practical for them. I will tell you what your hair wants to do and what it doesn't want to do! I am always honest when clients ask me about a certain style, weighing the pros and cons so you know what to expect. 

When I am not in the salon, you will find me with my hard-working husband and 3 usually wonderful kids. When I've had too much of them, we all know it happens, you will find me in my room binging a show ( "Million Little Things" anyone?) , watching hair videos and pinning some fun new recipes. Side note; My kids keep begging me to go on "Nailed it" and I still can't decide if that's a compliment! 




"Lauren is amazing. I have Celiac disease and gluten causes major issues for me. She has been understanding from day one and has used all gluten free products on me. I have never had an issue with my scalp or hair loss with her products. I have been getting my hair done by her for 3 years and could not imagine going to anyone else. She has become a great friend and is a breath of fresh air every time I see her."


"I met Lauren four years ago when looking for a hair stylist that uses clean products. It was an instant match! Not only is Lauren great at her job, she is also a wonderful human being. My hair has been shedding for years and Lauren was the first stylist that wasn't overly alarmed. She reassured me that this is common and can be resolved. I used to have so much anxiety around hair appointments but I can honestly say that I truly look forward to my appointments with her. Lauren is friendly and easy to talk to and it is apparent that she loves what she does! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lauren to anyone looking for a talented stylist that cares."


"Lauren is the best hair stylist I’ve ever had. I’ve never been able to grow out my hair and she not only helped me but my hair has never felt and looked better then it does now. She’s fast and uses safe products that aren’t harmful to my body. Her salon is always clean and sanitized. I’m so glad I found her!"


"Lauren is the hair bomb! I had been going to someone I loved for years but moved and that was no longer convenient. I went to several others in my search to find a new hair stylist and they were just blah. Then I found Lauren and have gone to her for almost 8 years now! She highlights my hair perfectly to cover up those pesky grays and she suggested highlight options so I mix it up a little between summer and fall colors. She stays well educated and uses quality products. I am thankful for the years of great chats and good hair! "


"Lauren has been doing my hair for 17 years. I feel fortunate knowing I can trust her with my hair. She is quick, reasonably priced, and reliable. She also takes the time to ask questions to make sure she can envision how I want my hair done. I also appreciate that she takes the time to be honest by explaining what's the best for my hair type and what hairstyles flatter my face shape. I always leave Lauren's chair pleased with her work and ability to meet my expectations. Lauren is definitely one of a kind!"
