In anticipation of our upcoming May 14-18 All-in-One Pigmentation Course taught by Lauren Spencer, we had a little chat with Lauren herself in order to help you get to know her and what she’s all about.
I’ve always had a passion for beauty and the industry; when I was in high school I worked in a hair salon. I attended an esthetics school prior to learning eyelash extensions and permanent makeup. My mother was the one who told me to get into lashes and permanent makeup as she thought it was going to be one of the next biggest beauty trends. It’s safe to say, I owe a portion of my success to her for inspiring me to get involved in this industry.

After working in the industry for so long and trying different products, I really noticed the products were lacking the quality I was looking for. With that, I decided to create my own brand and with months of trying various products, I finally found the quality I was looking for and wanted to share it with the rest of the industry.
I’ve had many moments where simply revealing the final result to a client and seeing the smile on their faces really made me feel like I was making a difference. Whether it helps with their confidence or just makes them feel great – I love being apart of that. I remember this one client like it was yesterday, we had a booth at the ESI Tradeshow in Toronto and I was performing live demos. This girl had cut her hair so she had bangs because she had very little to no eyebrow hair and always tried to cover her forehead. After we completed her application she had tears because of how happy she felt. It was a special moment to be a part of.

I love this industry because no matter how many years experience you have, you should always continue to learn and expand on your skills. I have trained all across the world to learn new techniques that add to my existing portfolio. In order to master your craft you have to continue to educate yourself in this evolving industry. Being able to introduce and provide the latest techniques and enhancements and incorporate them into the LFC training facility is what I strive for.

I am proud of where I am today and to be honest, I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the support of my team and a few other individuals in my life that have inspired me. As a new mom, I realized how tough it is to have a career, own a business and try to juggle life as a new mom. This has provided me with a totally new outlook. I’m proud that I am in an industry filled with women (and some men as well – don’t get me wrong) but to see parents who wake up each day and hustle to be successful in this industry with the time, patience and practice it takes, and being able to do that whether you’re raising a family or have other priorities in life, we always get it done and that makes me super proud to play a part in it.
