Originally hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, don't be fooled by her small town origins. Laura came from a successful 5 year career at FIVETWOSIX Salon/Spa in St. Paul, MN and an amazing yet prominent 7 year career at the Fred Segal Salon in Santa Monica, CA. Hairdresser Laura Dorpat acquired many of her technical and artistic skills from two very different salon worlds..
While at Fred Segal, Laura was then introduced to top industry hairstylist, Didier Malige. Together they have worked on jobs such as Armani, Dior, Vogue (Us), Vanity Fair and Harpers Bazaar. She has also assisted notable names Michel Aleman, Italo Gregorio, and Laurent Philippon.
Laura's on-set work has gained her experience with the world's best photographers including Peter Lindbergh, Patrick Demarchelier, Russell James, Carter Smith, Mario Testino, Mario Sorrenti, and Hedi Slimane.
While enjoying the on set life, nothing makes Laura feel down at home than behind the chair. Her specialty is striking bangs, and Beautiful blondes. Laura's new found home where she takes all her inspiration back to her clients is at Saulino Smith Salon right on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica, CA.
To book a complimentary consultation, Laura is taking appointments in the Saulino Smith Salon in Santa Monica.
