Hi love! I am Lacy, Laced Hair Founder and CEO.
While attending hair school in 2002, I received my first set of hair extensions (yes, that is how long I have been doing this). I fell in love with a then very foreign craft. At this point in time, this glorious secret was pretty much taboo. NO one wanted anyone to know that they had extensions! While to some, this is now a saturated market, it is still magic to me when I see a customer walk out with their Laced Hair and newfound confidence. I have spent nearly twenty years perfecting my methods to now pass along to you!
The Laced Academy is more than just teaching the craft of extensions. We focus on giving your client new confidence they didn’t know was in them and empower them to feel beautiful from the inside out.
In 2015, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor that evolved into a Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis. I lost 70% of my natural hair during treatment. During my time in the hospital, I met women who were also experiencing hair loss due to their medical situations. They expressed their desire for hair extensions to help regain their confidence. I knew my brand could help give them something they lost. Within the walls of the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, I decided to start my nonprofit charity, the Laced Hair Foundation. Through the foundation, we give hair extensions to women who have suffered from hair loss. The Laced Hair Academy, Laced Hair Extensions, and the Laced Hair Foundation all embody the values of empowerment, authenticity to inner beauty and acceptance.
