The Concrete Blonde story began with a young Laura Motyka who, at just five years old, already had her first client. Admittedly, that client was Barbie but she’s come a long way since then.
She’s also discovered that it’s way more fun to cut hair that actually grows back!
Following high school, Laura almost took a year out but was persuaded by her Dad to continue her studies and consider a trade.
Thankfully, for Squamish, she followed his sage advice and followed her creative curiosity into hairdressing.
Whether you’re looking for barbering, colouring or styling, each team member is uniquely talented meaning that no matter what your needs, both you and your hair are guaranteed to find the perfect match.
You’ll still find Laura on the floor four days a week and, in addition to helping keep Squamish stylish (in a very sustainable way), she’s also a Davines Educator, training up her team in the latest techniques.
This constant growth—this passion and dedication to learning and to building a harmonious team—is what makes 12 women in 1100sq ft work so well.
What does the future hold for Concrete Blonde? If you know Laura then you’ll know she’s always thinking several steps ahead. Perhaps one day, when you arrive for a Concrete Blonde pedicure, you’ll be able to grab a robe and check yourself in for a relaxing spa experience with a eucalyptus steam room and sauna.
In the meantime, we’ll just have to settle for helping you look and feel a million bucks!
