Hey - Welcome to Hair By Lauren!
My name is Lauren - if you haven't already worked it out! I am a mobile hairdresser covering the areas of: Chertsey - Staines - Ashford - Sunbury - Shepperton - Walton - Weybridge - Addlestone - Ottershaw & some wider areas.
I first started hairdressing as an Apprentice in 2014 in a busy chain-salon in Putney, London. I qualified within 2 years and gained NVQ Levels 2 & 3. Soon after, I was a busy stylist on the salon floor, with a forever building clientele.
In 2017, I went on maternity leave to have my son. I returned to the salon in 2018 & began building my clientele again whilst working part-time. After 5 months in the salon, it proved to be difficult travelling to & from the salon; gaining more clients whilst only part-time; and as well as being a mum! I shortly realised - it was time for a change...
And that is when Hair By Lauren was born!
It was a tough decision to leave the salon, as this was all I knew. However, I wanted to venture into becoming a Mobile Hairdresser & see how well I could do from this. I started a Facebook page & began to share with local community groups as well as family & friends helping to share my page - hoping to gain some clients. Within 2 months I was fully booked for 2 weeks in advance & was over the moon at how well my new business was going!
Whilst being a mobile hairdresser & running my business, I'm obviously still being mum too. My son is due to be starting nursery in September 2020, so my working hours will vary depending on the day. The days he will not be at nursery, I will be bringing him to appointments. I have been very fortunate that I have been able to do this in my business so far, and my clients have been very understanding & kind by letting me do so (thank you!). If you would prefer me not to bring my son - that is absolutely fine - please just let me know & I will be happy to make an arrangement for your appointment.
I love my job & I hope to share my passion with you all!
My diary is currently open for new clients - so I look forward to hearing from you soon!
