Laura Boland

Where did you grow up? New Jersey, Kansas and Minneapolis. Moved to NYC 9 years ago.

How long have you been in the Biz? Since 2003

Where do you find inspiration? Music, traveling, nature, reading, challenges, research and education. I love to fill my free time with things that nurture my soul. Those discoveries and experiences feed back into my work as a Stylist and help keep me inspired. 

What do you do besides hair? I'm a local Musician & Composer. I also attend a Conservatory where I'm pursuing Music Therapy.

What do you love most about being a hairdresser? Connecting with clients and making them feel more comfortable in their own skin. When they leave smiling, I leave smiling. I love learning new techniques and going out of my comfort zone so I can recognize opportunities, be more adaptable to change and offer a versatile experience. 

What looks are you into right now? Timeless precision Bobs with bangs are my favorite.  I also love sculpting curls, creating dimensional blondes and designing architectural shapes. 

Cut- Color - or both? Both
