When we let this gem escape the salon (we would seriously set up a cot for her to work 24/7, but we don’t think her family would appreciate that!), Laura is either spending time with her gorgeous daughters and husband, curling up with a good book, or doing what she can to give back. Laura is one of a kind and we’re lucky to have her as a part of our family at Salon Branca.
