Owner / President
Starting her career 16 years ago, driven with a passion for teaching, Laura was early to the game. After earning her Cosmetology License she then graduated with her Master Instructors License at only 18 years old. Her desire to be on stage one day, presented her with an opportunity to audition with international product line Sexy Hair Concepts. She was accepted and became one of the youngest artists in the company.
Laura specializes in razor and scissor cutting, the art of barbering, formal styles, corrective extensions, multi-textured hair, up styling and make up. She puts these talents to use in her own salon, Premier Beauty Barber Lash Body in Edmond. She celebrates 6 years in business this May with a multi-service salon concept including both a barbershop and spa area.
Her greatest passion is volunteering her artistic skills and professional expertise to individuals in need within the community. This altruistic sensibility inspired her to lead a salon that sets a new standard for the salon industry. Before moving to Oklahoma, Laura was partner in her first salon home for 3 years in Pittsburgh, Pa. Shortly after moving to Edmond, she noticed a great need for a salon that delivers a new standard. Premier is focused around dedication, excellence, continued education, most important, community and client focused. Premier has been involved with corporate philanthropy since the very beginning. For the last 4 years Premier has sponsored our very own Thunder Girls, and that’s not all, they also have partnered with:
The Edmond Women’s Club
The Care Center
Dress for Success
Chamber of Commerce: Women’s Network Makeover
The Education and Employment Ministry (TEEM)
Children’s Hospital Foundation: Style the 405 Fashion Show
