I’m Lauren. I was born and raised in the Midwest, and I’ve lived in the Uptown area for the past 5 years. I never knew I had wavy hair until I started my curl journey with Uptown Curl. I was a featured model in one of Kristy’s YouTube tutorial videos and was amazed by what the Curly Girl Method did for my waves!
I graduated from The Aveda Institute of Minneapolis in 2013 and worked with Aveda concept salons for a few years but never seemed to find my niche. I discovered Uptown Curl and I fell in love as soon as I walked in the door. I had no idea that curly hair specific salons even existed. After a year of working exclusively with curls I have found my passion!
I became a Level 2 Deva Advanced Stylist at the Deva Academy in NYC in October of 2017. I’m looking forward to returning in August 2018 to attend The Art of Texture seminar to learn more about super curly/type 4 hair.
