Tell us a little about yourself! What is your personal background and why did you start this business?

"I am a third generation cosmetologist, with a background in business management. My parents have owned a salon as long as I can remember, and when I completed my apprenticeship and received my cosmetology license, my mom and I decided to reach into a deeper niche - the wedding industry! She had a lot of experience in it already, as she was the lead bridal stylist at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn, and it just seemed like the right fit for us." ~Lauren Durling, SJS
