Two co workers, turned friends, turned business partners
Meet the Team
Elle Dawson, a co-owner of L&M, loves creating meaningful, lasting relationships with her clients. A graduate of Paul Mitchell in 2014, Elle specializes in bronde and brunette balayage. Throughout her six years in the industry, she continues to gather inspiration from her love of nature, travel, and top trends around the globe, as well as from her clients! It is always Elle’s goal to give the most natural, believable color, perfectly customized to your complexion and lifestyle.
Jordan, also known as Colorbyjord and now a co-owner of L&M, is a Paul Mitchell graduate who specializes in balayage with an interest in healthy hair color. Her approach to hair color is a natural and lived in one, allowing her clients flexibility and believable color. Since being in this industry for more than 6 years, it’s been important to create an experience focused on self care, relaxation + beauty, as well as to encourage proper hair care for hair color services. Great hair is a lifestyle and not just a quick style; great hair color is one that gets better with time.
