Stylist / Makeup Artist
I knew at the young age of 10, I was destined to become a hairstylist! I started my career in the beauty industry by attending San Rafael Beauty Academy while still a senior in high school. I received my cosmetology license in 2006 and went on to assist at Siren Salon in San Anselmo. From there, I branched out to a few more salons throughout Marin County before officially deciding to focus on building my clientele in my hometown of Petaluma, CA. My specialties include naturally blended dimensional color, textured/ razor cutting, special occasion updo styling, and all methods of hair extensions! Hair extensions have become my passion and I find great joy in tailoring everything specifically for the client, from the best installation method for them and their lifestyle, to custom cutting and coloring the extensions to blend perfectly with their own hair. I am certified in the SKW2.0 hand-tied hair extension method, which is a seamless method without the use of beads, glue, tape, heat, or braids. I am also Extension Master Certified through The Hair Shop, which includes certification in keratin fusions, micro links, tape-ins, one-step-wefts, and clip-ins. I am forever grateful to have such a fulfilling career where I can be passionate and creative, while also having the flexibility to spend plenty of time with my family.

While in college Bethany decided to pursue her true calling: beauty. After, graduating beauty college she pursued her passion as an apprentice stylist @ Elle Lui. There she trained with Wella creative directors learning numerous coloring lines working tirelessly to obtain a promotion to stylist. During the apprenticeship she studied cutting methodologies of Vidall Sasson and Jaques Dessange.
Today she credits her success to her wide ranging knowledge and education as key to careers success. Her analytical skills, innate creativity, and focus on the customer experience consistently result in thoughtfully crafted and flatering cuts perfectly tailored to everyone of her clients. Her philosophy is that good haircut should feel effortless and easy to work with.

Junior Stylist / Makeup Artist
Born on the East Coast and raised in North Carolina. I come from an art background with teachers who have paved the way to my dream. I started my cosmetology journey in December 2019... The pandemic most definitely threw a wrench into all of my plans. I would have to double the time in school with tedious zoom classes. But it only made my passion stronger and my path clearer. I was determined to continue learning and growing so that I could share my passion with the world. 2021 obtaining my license was such an accomplishment. Becoming a junior stylist is an honor. To be able to continue learning and growing with a team who shares and supports in my dreams.
Makeup has become an outlet for me and has changed me as a person completely. I love a good dramatic change -it is good for the soul! Fashion color as well as haircuts and layers are my current focus. I hope to continue with my education, staying current in our ever-changing industry and of course helping people feel and look their best!

Hello Downtown Petaluma, my name is Lauren and I’ve been a stylist for 10 years. My passion for making others feel confident has been life changing for me. I started my career in Sacramento then traveled to Marin County, and now I have landed in the Northern Bay Area. I have a wonderful little family; they are my biggest supporters in the growth of my career. I enjoy creating art, nature, and architecture. In my spare time, I love getting on the trails and riding my mt. bike or outside in my garden.
As a past cosmetology educator, I’m highly trained by Paul Mitchell, Pivot Point, and Aveda, and have multiple accredited certifications in the beauty industry. With this training and experience I go above and beyond to create a custom service, calming and relaxing atmosphere for each of my clients.
I pride my mentors and my hunger for education over the years and because of that, behind the chair my specialties are a wide range. I’m a master of many color processes including, balayage and a vivid fashion color specialist. I love working on corrective color, procession haircuts and barber skills for the entire family. Knowledgeable of all types of textured hair – I love the curls! Achieving new and everyday looks, hair goals for clients, and so much more!
I strive in educating myself and have pride in keeping my clients hair healthy. Keeping our hair healthy is hard these days. Let's just face it. I feel it’s so important for us stylists to take the time to listen and execute our client’s hair needs in and out of the salon. Looking forward to your visit at Fox and the Hair. Cheers!
