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 in Canandaigua 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.
