HISTORY In it's inception, what is now known as Lawrence & Colbert was Lawrence Hair Studio. Envisioned and established by Lynn R. Lawrence in September 1978, this now growing beauty enterprise started with a staff of three: our receptionist; creative designer, Allyn T. Colbert (former co-owner); and Lynn Lawrence himself. The salon was equipped for six operators, which housed a staff of five by March 1979. By December 1979 three additional operating stations were added with accompanying shampoo areas. The staff size grew with new operators and a manicurist.
In 1982, the Lawrence & Colbert team, out of a desire to ensure quality and maintain the satisfaction of services to its clientele, instituted the present in-salon training program. New staff, first hired as assistants, received training in various techniques involving hair preparation, cutting and design. To date, hundreds of individuals have completed the program, many of which have become highly competent and creative artists in the industry. As many graduates completed the training, there was again the need to expand. So, in July 1983, eight more operating stations were added, utilizing the salon's capacity for seventeen operators.
Lawrence & Colbert has never stopped its vision of a highly successful business period. It continues to seek new talented hair designers, as well as the strive to cater to the needs of its clients. The salon has expanded its services to include manicures, pedicures, facials and massages.
In addition, it has in the past years provided countless demonstrations and workshops throughout the Los Angeles area for existing artists in the industry desiring to learn new methods and techniques. Theirs is an enthusiastic, energetic, optimistic, and dedicated team!
