Laura is an amazing hair dresser with a wealth of knowledge especially with regards to natural hair or hair which has been over process that it's thinning (me). I originally visited Laura after having a telephone consultation with her. The consultation process didn't stop there, Laura advised me on treatments, what products would be suitable for my type of hair - this is something I have never experienced before from a hairdresser. My hair journey with Laura has been fantastic, from having my staple hair style of braids, to my first weave, Brazilian keratin blow dry (all natural) to my current style of crochet braids (nice and light and little more grown up than braids). When we look to change my hairstyle, we discuss what would suit my hair type and also my lifestyle as this has been variable (pregnancy, post natal, returning to work). My natural hair feels fuller than it has in a long time and my hair line which had started to recede (due to tight braids and relaxing my hair every 8 weeks before Laura) has also grown back thicker and my hair line is better than when I was 10 (prior to my first relaxer) which allows me to wear my hair in many more styles than I previously could. I travel from Hertfordshire (2 hours) to get my hair done by Laura and she is worth every effort especially when my natural hair feels soft and hydrated without feeling greasy. I'm loving my straight crochet braids. I would highly recommend Laura - you won't see anyone else once you've sat in her chair :-)

I would like to say a big thank you for my box braids. they look amazing.! I was given a full consultation on the condition of my natural hair and how Lauralyn will work with me to ensure my hair is strengthened and grows to it's full potential. I am getting numerous complements on my new hair do. I am completely satisfied with the customer service and happy that Lauralyn is very knowledgable and look forward to more hair styles as Lauralyn's versility is second to none.

I was very much a septic of wearing a weave until a friend referred me to Laura. She listened to my concerns and offered some great advise in looking after my own hair and the weave. She provided a great service, always flexible. Needless to say that is why i travel all the way from Bristol as i trust her with my head!!!!!

Understands what the client wants and delivers. Loved my box braids and I was told every single day. When I took them out everyone who had saw them asked "what happened to you beautiful long hair" and when am I getting them back. So I've come again for something different as I promised everyone lmao.

My daughter & I get our hair done by Lauralyn, she came highly recommend for natural hair which was perfect fort daughter. Before the initial appointment, Lauralyn had a consultation with both my daughter & I, in regards to what products she would be using in our hair, which ones are best for our hair & how to care for our hair. I have had different styles done by Lauralyn & I have been happy with all of them. She makes you feel welcome, relaxed & at home. Lauralyn is very talented & great at what she does. I didn't have a hairdresser before I went to Lauralyn & she made feel very comfortable & at ease especially with her knowledge of what are the right products for me. Lauralyn does a fabulous job at all times & always aims to please her clients. She loves what she does & thats a 10/10 from both me & my daughter.

Laura is very knowledgeable when it comes to hair. I travel from County Bedfordshire because I trust Lauralyn in my hair.
The care that she gives goes beyond the ordinary salon experience. She takes her time and ensures my hair is well done.
The aftercare advice that she gives, has helped to me maintain my keratin treatment and my extensions. My regular hair treatments helps to strengthen and grow my hair.

Thank you Lauralyn for caring for my hair.

It’s very hard to cherry pick a great stylist these days. My personal experience with Hair by Lauralyn is that she is very pleasant and knowledgable. I've had various styles and i've never been dissappointed. There’s a sense of old school customer care service and she pays great attention to detail. In addition, she is always on trend and promotes healthy hair growth and maintenance. She is very flexible on time and can fit you in for a re-styling. There is no rush job with her!
I would recommend Lauralyn you always get a great hairstyle, and one with longevity!

Hair by Lauralyn is a one of a kind hairdresser, after I had my 1st consultation with her I can honestly say her advice helped turn my life around. I can not thank her enough for her simple but powerful words of hair and skin advice that I can not do without now. I have no complaints when she does my hair and I can say I am surely getting my money's worth. Lauralyn is one of a kind. Perfect service to say the least.

I have not been to a hairdresser in years, but was really pleased with the hair treatment and service I received at LauraLyn. I got so much more than I would usually expect from a hairdresser! I had a shampoo and deep conditioner and whilst waiting for the conditioner to work, she gave me LOTS of advice about hair care and maintenance eg suitable products and how to apply them, vitamins, and real encouragement about my own natural hair! After the conditioner was rinsed out, she added various products, massaged my scalp, blow dried my hair which looked and felt great! It has not looked that good or felt that soft in a very long time!! She finished off with a simple cornrow style I had requested. So overall, a great experience! Highly recommended!

I would like to say a big thank you to Lauralyn - she fitted me in for an appointment at the last minute as I had a wedding to attend despite having a very busy schedule and a lot of customers. She did my hair amazingly and when someone said to me I looked ten years younger that said it all on how well she did my hair. I would thoroughly recommend Lauralyn to anyone who wants their hair done by a Professional who treats her clients with care and respect and does your hair to a 5 star standard. Like most women we try many hairdressers over a lifetime and I am very fussy about my hair but this lady is good!

My overall experience is really positive. Laura makes you feel very comfortable and was very informative about hair and the procedure of adding the weave and what is best for your natural hair. This has been my first weave in the UK, as I usually wait to go back home to Namibia before doing it, but talking to Laura on the phone prior to my appointment I felt assured she is an expert with hair. I bought my hair from her as well, and after 2 weeks and 2 washes, it is still sleek and in good condition. When I need to refit my weave I will definitely call on her expertise again.

P.s. My Fiance loved my new look and have gotten many compliments from people since.

It was the first time getting my hair done at a salon for about forever. When I came across Lauralyn, we spoke and discussed my needs. Up until my appointment day, she stayed in touch with me and showed and discussed styles that would suit me. Having met her on the day, I was comforted and reassured that this would be my best decision yet and it was.

I now have a beautiful head of hair and have been complemented immensely on it. I feel alive because my hair is now alive too. Lauralyn, you are a star and it's all because of you! I will certainly recommend you to all those I know and will be coming soon for a revisit. Thank you once again - your quality of work is one in a million!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was worried about getting my hair braided in the UK as I usually get it done in the United States. The minute I met Lauralyn, my worries were eased. She's someone who cares about natural hair, and took time to find out about my regimen and goals. Moreover, she's very careful in her work and pays attention to every detail - from sourcing hair products to the hairstyling itself. A day after I had my appointment, I sent a friend visiting from Paris to get her hair braided. We're both 2 happy chicas and I look forward to having Lauralyn do my hair again!
