INTERESTS + ABOUT ME
I feel super blessed to be a part of an industry that takes care of people and to find a career that I absolutley love! Hair is what I live and breath for. I am super passionate about creating living hair and education. While having fun and doing hair behind the chair, I am also an educator. I love to share and collaborate with other stylist to help inspire them and myself to do amazing hair.
At LaVuj Hair Studio, I begin all of my hair services with a great consultation by asking thorough questions about your hair needs, concerns and, wants. By collaborating your ideas and mine, let's design a haircut, color, and style that is uniquely designed for you as you relax in my chair. We can go a little more dramatic or subtle, I love doing them all. My goal is to creat a look that will work for you. Let your hair do most of the work as you wear it day by day. By understanding color placement and mastering hair cutting, I can create a complete look that will last to your next service with me.
I also offer St.Tropez Sunless Tanning. This airbrushed body glow is amazing! If you're looking for a flawless, non sticky, natural looking tan then look no further. This body glow will right for you!
So what are you waiting for? Book in with me and lets make it happen!
Lawkong has been cutting my hair for about five years. Hi is incredibly talented at both cutting and styling hair. He has never given me a haircut that I didn't love.

Lawkong is a talented, creative and expert stylist. I have lots of fine, curly hair. Rather unruly and difficult to shape. Lawkong always gives me what i ask for in a way that works for my hair type. Genius! So pleased to have his talent in my life!

I LOVE LAWKONG. I found him after going to a stylist at another salon who completley messed up my hair cut. I went in for a medium cut with layers and left with my hair looking like a triangle. I had crooked BANGS (didn't want bangs) and slightly above the shoulder hair. I was a HOT mess and started calling salons to see if anyone could help. A salon on Grand Ave told me to come in and that they did had one of their best stylist available. It was Lawkong. I walked in feeling and looking horrible. I walked out looking and feeling great. It was the best haircut and style to date!!! I immedidately fell in love with Lawkong. I've been with him ever since. He did my wedding hair. He is wonderful. He listens. He has great vision and I trust him to do whatever he thinks would work for me. Can't go wrong with Lawkong.
