As a hair designer of six years, Lauren is a master of hair, going above and beyond her client’s expectations. Lauren moved to Portland last year to set out on a new adventure. She came from the premier salon in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she had a loyal clientele established.
In 2008, out of thirty stylists she received the “Outstanding Achievement Award” through her previous salon. This was a great achievement for her first year at the salon. Lauren specializes in color, haircutting, dry haircutting, updos, and styling.
She has had extensive continuing education with Bumble and Bumble, Vidal Sassoon, Goldwell and Wella on a monthly basis, and has attended inspiring hair shows hosted by famous hair stylist Nic Arrojo. Lauren sees “doing hair” as more than making people look beautiful. To her it is an art, and the client is a walking artwork.
It is an opportunity to create with another person. To have a vision and see it manifest and come to life. Doing hair gives her and the client an opportunity to connect, to heal, and to have a unique experience of recognizing the inner and outer beauty in each of us. Lauren is greatly known for designing beautiful hair, and for her ability to truly listen and take the time to educate each client. She is also a Reiki Master/Teacher, and Master of Crystalogy Energy Healing. When Lauren is not in the salon, she loves spending time with her husband, camping, dancing, meditating, being artistic, and connecting with family and friends.

I feel that Lauren has a "spidy sense" about what I want in my haircuts. Today I just slumped into her chair, sighed, and said, "I think I want to go shorter, or something." And with only that guidance, she gave me the perfect low-maintenance bob for my new mom-lifestyle.
I love Lauren - I've been going to her for over a year, and have never been anything but superhappy with my haircuts. Plus, she's supersweet and fun. If you are looking for a hairstylist, listen to me: GO TO LAUREN. She rocks. Seriously.
Lauren is an artist!! She respects my need for an excellent haircut and my limited funds to purchase extra services and/or product. She is a free spirit. I get loads of compliments on my hair and tell everybody to go see Lauren!

I went to Lauren and she was super great. She took me on a last minute call and turned my blah hair into a sexy amazing look. She listened to what I liked and put her wonderful style in with it. Fun to chat with and down to earth. I am planning on returning and seeing what lauren can do next with my hair!
Great work Lauren. Since I saw you my hair manages to look cute neatly styled, bedheaded, even stuck out from under a hat. I don't know how you do it, but I love it.
Lauren cut my hair exactly the way I wanted it! She really listened to what I wanted and my haircut turned out perfect! She switched my side bangs to the other side and they look so much better!! I also really love the long layers she gave me. I will definately be getting my haircut by Lauren from now on!
Delightful best cut and highlights I have ever had! Lauren was an absolute delight from start to finish. She had great suggestions and I have difficult curly frizzy hair. it has never looked better. First the first time in my life I booked my next appointment before I walked out the door!
Lauren gave me the best haircut I have had since I moved to Portland several years ago. I appreciated her professionalism and calm demeanor. I was not sure what I wanted and she came up with a cut and highlights that exceeded my expectations.
Lauren is a star!!! I love my new hair cut and color. Lauren is an artist. I can't wait for my next appointment. I felt so pampered and important. Thank you Lauren! You are the BEST!!!!!
I love going in to see Lauren. Whether I need my hair cut, colored or a new style, she takes over and helps you make a decision that suits your style. Moreover, Lauren really cares about your happiness. Having lived in Portland for 40 years - I know Lauren is the best stylist you'll find.
From the moment I walked into Strut Salon I knew that my hair cut and color experience would be just what I was looking for. The salon is warm and inviting. Lauren took so much time discussing what I wanted. I asked her for suggestions and she came up with a style and color that I absolutely love. I didn't feel rushed. Instead I felt pampered. I love my new "look" and I can not wait to go back. Lauren is an exceptional hair designer. I am so happy that I found her.
Great experience, beginning to end. Appreciated the conversation about cut, color what I might be open to, to update the look. I felt at home from the very beginning. Will be delighted to refer clients and friends. Thanks, Lauren!
Lauren I found because of Groupon (amazing!) and she was delightful. Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful describes Lauren perfectly. I have very thin hair and she did a great job of helping me figure out what I could do with my hair, including teaching me a new technique and then letting me practice it as well. I am really happy I found Lauren and will continue to go to her for my hair needs. :)
Lauren was super hospitable, friendly, and open. She listened to my ideas for my hair, then did a great job when I let her have at it. Strut has a comfortable, fun atmosphere. I will definitely get another haircut here!
I went to Strut because of a Groupon. Lauren cut my hair and listened to what I wanted and the end result is hair that I love and not hair that I want to hide. I usually don't spend much money on anything hair-related and now I know why people do: it feels good to have cool hair!
Lauren did such a great job on my hair! I was nervous about trying out a new style but I trusted her suggestion and I absolutely love my haircut! She is fabulous and really goes the extra mile for her clients!
Lauren is so good at cutting hair! I love my haircut. She listened to exactly what I wanted, and provided a relaxing environment. I would definitely recommend her.
Lauren was wonderfully kind and not only listened to what I wanted, but provided helpful suggestions about what to do. I have never gotten more compliments on a haircut than the one I got from her. My hair is fabulous and I would recommend her to anyone!
I have been looking for a good stylist since i moved to Portland two years ago. My daughter told me about the group-on with Lauren and got it right away. I really love my hair cut and have found myself a stylist! Plus Lauren is very personable.
Lauren is the best at head massages! I could have fallen asleep getting my hair shampooed, lol. Lauren, you are a total sweetheart and it's so much fun just to hang out. My hair feels the greatest it ever has after visiting you. Thanks for your excellent service and personability.

Strut Salon is a loft, with a laid-back vibe where you can enjoy organic hand pressed coffee, tea, and organic beer or wine. We carry a fantastic hair product line called Eufora, which is based in organic aloe vera and they use natural ingredients and essential oils. They use no artificial ingredients and do not test on animals. The salon is green certified, striving to take care of the planet and us. We play acoustic music on the radio and it is a nice, open space. Strut Salon is working at getting a bicycle rack in the back and doing a special price for those who ride their bike to the salon!
