Laurie Premo- Owner- Licensed Master Hair Care Specialist.
Laurie grew up in a small town in upstate New York called Malone and at age 18 moved to Syracuse. While living in Syracuse she pursued her licensure in Cosmetology. After working in many hair salons Laurie realized that her real passion was barbering and moved to a unisex shop. While cutting and styling men’s and women’s hair, she apprenticed under 3 licensed barbers and later obtained her Barber License.
Years later, she then moved with her family to Canandaigua New York and after working for the local barbershops in town decided to open her own. In 1992, Premo's Barber Shop was opened inCanandaigua NY. A little one chair shop directly off her home, it only took a few years for Laurie to gather a loyal following.
After 12 years of owning her own business, many of her loyal clients were sad to see her go, but in 2004 Laurie and her family moved to South Carolina. After again working in local barbershops, and finding no happiness, Laurie found a prime location to once again open her own place. In 2006 Premo's Barbershop (the Summerville SC Edition) was born. Laurie has been happily cutting hair ever since.
