Leah Carlson, Owner & Stylist, LA LA LUXE SALON

Leading Ladies 2024


“Life is stressful – self-care and your hair should definitely not be.” This is Leah Carlson’s philosophy as stylist and owner of LA LA LUXE SALON. At age 13, Leah dreamed of doing hair on runways and movie sets, practicing first on friends and family members. After securing an associate in fine arts, she finally pursued her childhood dream and went to cosmetology school. “It’s been a bumpy ride, but it is worth all the blood, sweat, and tears,” says Leah, who credits her dad with teaching her everything she knows about running a business.

Leah has trained at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Miami, Arrojo Studio in NYC, and taken multiple classes with notable names like Oribe and Gina Bianca. Today, Leah is the go-to stylist in the state for grey transitions, and attracts clients from all over New England (and beyond). Leah continues to hone her skills in cutting and coloring so she can be as fresh and innovative as possible. “I’m not looking to change the world,” she says. “I’m looking to create confidence in my clients.”
