Raynier worked with Roger Thompson at Barney’s for ten years. Laara was not allowed to use a blowdryer when she began her training with Thompson. The haircut had to stand on its own; this is the type of training you will receive! Laara Raynier is the authority on all aspects of precision haircutting, classic and current techniques. She is a one-of-a-kind teacher that exudes passion and creativity. While working with Edward Tricomi, Laara Raynier learned to master long hair, blending, layering, styling, and blow-drying from the salon to the runways.
