Hi, my name is Ellen Lavarre and I own Lavarre Hair Designs. I've only done hair. I love hair. I used to do hair in my dorm room. I actually used braiding to pay my way through college. I have a line of hair care products called Ellen Lavarre Textures and they are available here at Lavarre Hair Designs. I love my clients here. I never disrespect their time. Once I'm here, I'm there.
I'm not on the phone, not eating over their head, I'm always focused on my client. As a stylist I would say I've had a really good vibe. I had invented a hairstyle called invisible braids, where the hair was braided and then tied and then let out and it looked like it was hair grown right out of your scalp. I met Whitney Houston in 1984. I started doing her hair with the invisible braids and I stayed with her for like 25 years then I was doing Patti LaBelle, Iman, Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliot, I've even done Oprah. I've done a lot of movies that featured in Allure, Essence, Glamour, and Vogue.
I've been on television many times. I've been on Oprah about six times I think it is. I've also appeared on and I've done hair for America's Next Top Model. So I've had a lot of experience in the entertainment industry. You can see a lot about me on my website at lavar.com. At any time of the day you can request appointments online and you can even ask me questions online and I will answer your questions for you.
