After years of bad hairdressers it's a breath of fresh air to meet Lauralyn. She's passionate about hair and what she does and that definitely shows through her work and the experience I had in the salon. As soon as I arrived I was made to feel comfortable and quickly built a rapport with her. What's more, my silk press has managed to hold up after being battered by the wind and rain! And I will definitely go back to Lauralyn.

It was my first time getting the wax and the staff that did mine was so comforting and made me feel super comfortable. I will definitely be back again!

Excellent Service as always from Lauralyn. This time I used hair that Laura has sourced herself for her clients and its the best hair I have used to date. It is nice and thick, silky, and stills looks good after much partying over the Christmas. So ladies, dont take hair, let LL find the best hair for you as you will not be disappointed. LL is one of the best hairdressers for women in London. I highly recommend her salon for any lady who wants A class hair. KMA

Just had an excellent hairdressing experience at Hair By Lauralyn...
Laura is a very professional and friendly hairdresser whose attention to detail and good rapport put me at ease. I will definitely be returning and highly recommend her.

Lauralyn is a very patient and understanding lady, I was late due to unforeseen circumstances and she was very understanding, as she still wanted to see me and do my hair. She is very knowledgeable about hair and makes you feel welcome. I am glad that she was delicate with my scalp and did not pull too hard. I am very thankful for that, as I have had many horror situations from previous hair stylists.

Laura, is warm person and very passionate about her work. Quite a perfectionist a quality quite rare in hair dressers, perfect attitude to have in a business that is so important to people who are moving from the perms, wigs, weaves to being natural again. Laura showed a lot of care and attention to the immediate priority that my hair is lacking advising on the type of treatment required to get my hair back in tip top condition. My hair has suffered a little but I feel revived that I now have a hair dresser who will take the time on a 1-2-1 case scenario to ensure I get the best attention in achieving the ultimate in bringing my hair back to life. Thank you Laura for your time and patience even though you noted my hair is not that bad, but we agree it can look a lot better - your advice is golden! Family and Friends are loving the new Nubian look and I must say I am too.. You’re awesome!

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!
