Meet Laura – Master Colorist 2 at Torrey Hills
How long have you been working for Gila Rut?
I’ve been at Gila Rut for 8.5 years!
What do you love most about working in the salon?
The people I get to know working in the salon is the best part of working at Gila Rut. My guests come from every background and every walk of life, so everyday I get to hear about different experiences and create unique looks for each individual. My teammates are also a constant source of love, support, fun, and inspiration. I get to hang out with amazing people everyday.
What would you say is your most important role in the salon?
I feel like it’s part of my job to show people what is possible. We can uplift the perception of ourselves and our industry by showing up every day as professionals. We need to take pride in what we do and how we do it. I try to be a role model for what a successful hairdresser can be: creative, knowledgeable, consistent, and attentive. But at the end of the day, let’s remember, we should also be having fun!
What do you enjoy doing outside the salon?
Outside of the salon, you might find me in the outdoors. I love running, hiking, or on the beach. If not outside, I might be at the yoga studio or curled up with a good book.
