LA Beauty owner, Laura Wilson, graduated from college in 2003 with an HND in Beauty Therapy and did her work experience in Gleneagles Hotel and Spa. She spent her first couple of years working locally, gaining experience and continually training before landing a job at the world famous Stobo Castle. Laura’s flair led her to secure next dream job working in a 5-star spa on board a luxury cruiseliner. And, just when you think that can’t be topped, she followed that up with a stint doing in-flight beauty in the first class trans-atlantic Virgin Airlines, rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous!
Laura's long-term ambition was always to own a salon and her dream was realised in 2010 when she set up shop in Glasgow's east end, her native home. The salon continues to thrive and, following a refurbishment at the start of 2014, Laura hopes for continued success for years to come. Laura runs the salon with the help of Julie and the two Danielle's, each a fundamental part of the salon's past successes and prosperous future.
Laura is also fully insured to visit your home of workplace for treatments, from girly nights in to office parties.
