Laara Raynier was trained in London and New York and mastered classic precision haircutting from the
hair legend himself, Roger Thompson of Barney's NY. Thompson was one of the creators of precision haircutting as we know it and was the first world art
director of Sassoon's in the '60s. Raynier worked with
him at Barney's for ten years. Laara was also trained
by and works with Edward Tricomi, of Warren Tricomi, where she learned to master long hair, blending,
layering, styling, and blow-drying from the salon to the runways. Laara teaches unique and incredible techniques.
Raynier worked with Roger Thompson at Barney's for ten years. Laara was not allowed to use a blowdryer when she began her training with Thompson. The haircut had to stand on its own; this is type of training you will receive!

Laara Raynier is the authority on all aspects of precision haircutting, classic and current techniques. She is a one-of-a-kind teacher that exudes passion and creativity. 

While working with Edward Tricomi, Laara Raynier learned to master long hair, blending, layering, styling, and blow-drying from the salon to the runways.

Confidence is a key element to success. After training with Laara Raynier, you'll attain world-class skills and techniques used by the masters.
It will take your career to the next level.
