About

At the young age of 3 years old, Lauren Kattenburg did her first haircut on her best friend, from what she's been told, it was a pretty even trim. There is nothing she loved greater than playing salon.

Fast forward 30+ years past Barbies and braids, boys and broken hearts, updos and flatirons, curls and pixie cuts, college and hair school, a marriage and two children...

Lauren has been in the industry for 15 years now. Her career started off on a high note winning the Grand Prize at Graham Webb Academy's Hair Show. Her first advanced class was taught by the Doves at the Wells Studio NYC, razor cutting and color theory. Since that first class she has returned yearly to the Well Studio for further advanced education in everything from color foundation to color contouring. She competed in the 2016 Wella Trendvision Semifinals and has entered the Sebastian Whats Next Awards in successive years. She became an educator for Wella/Sebastian in 2016 and then decided in 2018 to return her primary focus to behind the chair and her family. 

When you sit down in Lauren's chair, she immediately makes you feel like you've known her forever. She wants to know the real you and then design a color and style to match. She wants to create a unique, wearable, flattering, and manageable style for everyone she encounters. Her empathy for others has helped shape her into the person and stylist she is today.

Lauren never stops pushing herself. Every creation has to be better than the last, more sharp, more blunt, more vibrant, more intricate. The passion, the fire, the driving force inside of her is never quieted or extinguished. She dreams in patterns and wakes formulating, listening to the movement of the hair and letting it guide her.

15 years in and her love and passion still grow. You can see it daily in her smile and her happy dance behind the chair after a well executed look.

I spent 3 years with a previous stylist trying to get to that perfect icy platinum blonde. Lauren nailed it the first time and I’ve seen her every 5 weeks for the past 18 months. My hair is the only accessory I wear every day and if she moved across the country, I’d have to start flying there every 5 weeks. (Please don’t ever leave me!)

I found Lauren about two years ago when I wanted to try a seapunk/mermaid color scheme. Since then, she's never steered me wrong, always looks for input, and has helped me gracefully transition from rainbows to natural and then back again. I don't even pick colors anymore because each palette she makes is utter perfection. Her skill, talent, and creativity are obvious with her work. 10 out of 10, I will always trust my hair in her hands. Btw, Lauren, please don't ever move. -Jenn M.

Lauren is a master artist. She is not only skilled at what she does, she is also passionate about making people feel great from the inside out. She is an excellent teacher. I have very wavy hair. I have learned how to style it for both straight and curly looks. She has taught me how to use product, use tools, and give myself a more professional and stylish look every day. -Christina E.
