British-born Laara Raynier is one of the most exciting, artistic and creative hairdressers and teachers in the world today.

In her 30-year career, trained in both London to New York City, Laara Raynier is the only hairdresser to have been trained by and worked with these legends:

 Roger Thompson, Barney's NYC, First World Art Director of Sassoon's
• Edward Tricomi, Warren Tricomi Salons,
• Tim Hartley, Hair Genius, Third World Art Director of Sassoon's
• Donald MacIntosh, Famous British Master Haircutting Teacher

Laara Raynier's advanced haircutting workshops and hands-on private classes are designed to teach classic and current precision hair cutting and styling. Experience what it's like to take a Mastercutter Academy workshop or private class.
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.
