Lauren Bailey-Chaidez

Owner | Stylist since 2002

I love effortlessly cool hair. Shags, mullets, bobs, and all types of fringe. I truly believe everyone needs bangs! I love creating natural looking multi-dimensional colors. Balayage, foiliage, and color correction. 

I am devoted to creating a clean air space for my staff and clients. As a salon owner I truly feel it is my responsibility to provide a safe environment.  No one should have to risk their health to work in the hair industry!  

We are proud to use high quality organic low toxic hair color, aftercare, and styling products.  I’m currently obsessed with GM Reverie products, they smell amazing and are so good. New Wash by Hairstory has changed my life!  Badlands Organics Desert Dust is my favorite dry shampoo. Clean options still perform just as well and I’m always searching for new lines to try. 

When I’m not running the salon I enjoy thrifting for treasures, record collecting, playing guitar with my husband in our band (HEFLIN), and watching true crime. I also believe you can never have too many shoes and I’m always looking to add another pair of clogs to my collection. I love all things 70’s. 

My favorite movie is Rosemary’s Baby.  Mia Farrow's wardrobe is what my dreams are made of. I love 90’s Alternative rock: Veruca Salt, Letters to Cleo, The Breeders, That Dog, Pavement, and Built to Spill have been my favorite bands since high school and that hasn’t really changed.

I love living in Los Angeles. I enjoy shopping locally and supporting small businesses. Occasionally I venture out to Palm Springs for a long weekend.
