Sick of Brassy Results on Dark Hair?
ME TOO! That was the driving force behind the development of my #ultrablendedcolor technique. I LOVE balayage. The labor of it, the seamlessness, the blend! However, when it came time to rinse, I was never quite confident about what I would find when I peeled back the film. Shampoo time was always time to panic! Did it get light enough? Did it lift brassy? When this blue toner fades and orange creeps back in a few weeks, am I going to get an angry phone call? I had had it with the inconsistency in lift! Eventually, through years of trial and error, I created a system that works on ALL natural hair colors and is sure to illuminate unwanted tones as well as give me that seamlessness I love about balayage!
Sick of Doing Hair that doesn't inspire you?
Me too again! There is hair that is work, and hair that is art. I always hear people say, "Gray coverage clients pay the bills." As much as I love my gray coverage clients, I always encourage them to try new things. Why? Because, I didn't get into hairdressing for that job. I got into it because I am creative and love to feel the accomplishment of creating something beautiful and ORIGINAL. Wouldn't it be nice if the clients who "pay the bills" were the ones requesting you personally for your art and not just something they could easily get ANYWHERE else? That is what makes this E-Course one of a kind! Yes, you will learn everything about the technique itself, but I also give you all my secrets for how to build a dream clientele that value your work and request YOUR unique hands!
Why this E-Course is Unlike Any Other Class...
Much of the education that exists is offered by product companies. This can be great but often I feel the end goal is to sell product and the education is secondary, so the experience can be more sales oriented than educational. I am an independent educator and am not restricted to any one product line, so you know this content represents my true beliefs and is purely educational!
A virtual Shadowing Experience!
This online course was designed to be as close to a one-on-one training session with me as possible. Most online hair education is a live recording of a physical class. However, many times it is hard to hear and see exactly what is going on since the instructor is focused on the people in the physical class and not focused on the spectators at home! This course has instruction specifically for the online student, providing more of a one-on-one experience as if you were in the studio shadowing me!
There is a lot of ego in the hair business. You may have experienced a cold shoulder when you have reached out to stylists on Instragam whom you admire. I LOVE to establish REAL relationships with REAL stylists! Your relationship with me does not end after purchasing a course. I am committed to remaining in touch and answering questions even after the course is complete. I am truly focused on helping other stylists grow in there craft and make myself available for advice.
What Are My Credentials and Experience?
Here is my awkward braggy, list of accomplishments:
North West Colorist of the Year
B.A. Marketing/Communication Studies
Published work in numerous magazines
Featured on multiple Instagram inspiration pages
REAL LIFE experience (The important stuff):
My family has owned a business since I was born. Everything I know, and my most valuable experience and knowledge has come from my parents, not my Bachelor's degree, I don't believe you need all that to be successful. You need a support system and guidance. I am so fortunate to have had that growing up which is why I want to share that with you!
"I took Lauren's class a few months ago in Seattle and it has COMPLETELY changed the way I do hair. I have been a stylist for almost 10 years and have always loved the "lived in" look. It's what I've always done, but I had been working harder not smarter and not quite achieving the looks I wanted. Lauren's technique(s) just made so much sense to me, it was my true "aha" moment in my career. I've never been busier and never LOVED the hair I am sending out the door more! I can't thank her enough..... do yourself a favor and take her class!"— Maegan
Lauren is amazing at what she does and I love seeing how
passionate she is. She taught us different techniques on coloring
hair as well as tips running your business. Definitely worth every penny!— Emily
Lauren Frances is so talented! She showed us tricks
of the trade in hair and marketing on your instagram!! Love her work!! Thank you Lauren!— Angela
I live in a really small town where balayage hasn't really even hit yet, so education is extremely limited. For a really long time the only education I had access to were the little tidbits on YouTube and 1 minute long clips on Instagram. In some ways they were helpful, but they did not come even close to teaching me this look that I happened to stumble across when I found Lauren's page. When I saw her ultrablended color, I knew I had found my new favorite page, and hairstylist to follow!! I studied her page like crazy and looked into taking private lessons, but as a wife and mom of 4 young kids traveling half way across the country was not an option. I literally about cried when she told me she was putting together a private lesson that would be accessible online. I signed up within minutes of the release and I couldn't be happier. She is so thorough in this course and leaves nothing out, which is amazing for someone like me who can't function without 1000 details. However whenever I do have a question, She's also amazing with her quick and helpful responses. I would highly recommend this class for anyone, really, but especially for those like me who are very visual and detail oriented. This series will not disappoint!! Thank you Lauren!— Amy
I recently flew from Connecticut to California to take Lauren’s ultrablend class. It was one of the best experiences of my career. Lauren was very professional ,fun and very knowledgeable with her technique. I took the one on one training which I feel was extremely beneficial to make sure you get a firm understanding on how to create these masterpieces. I’m very excited to take more classes.— Erin
I really enjoyed taking the ultra blended color class with Lauren! Not many people offer private one on one training for this technique so that alone was great. Lauren was so personable and open to things we had questions on and wanted to learn. She was extremely knowledgeable. It was awesome to work on a real model instead of a mannequin head as well. I left her class feeling more confident and inspired! I would most definitely take more of her classes! Thank you Lauren!— Corey
