Meet Your Stylists
Owner and Master Stylist
It is nice to meet you! My name is Lora Brown. I was born and raised in Amarillo. I have had the pleasure to do what I love for 35 years. I started my career at the early age of 17, and I have over 30 years of advanced education and training under the best stylist/salon owners in the world. I opened my first salon, “Lora Brown Salon” in 1996, and my second salon, “The Salon by Lora Brown” in February of 2008. The Salon by Lora Brown was recognized as a “Salon of Distinction” in Salon Today Magazine in 2009. I have been an educator and platform artist for Paul Mitchell in Texas. I am a member of the N.C.A. and P.B.A. In 2020, our Salon was awarded for Top Business Excellence by the Amarillo Chamber of Commerce. Being a stylist allows me to spend 1 on 1 time with my clients, connecting and getting to know them by building a life long relationship.
I enjoy being creative. I love fashion, interior design, and art. I can hardly draw a stick figure or read my own penmanship, but I am an artist with my shears and a color brush. I can drive myself crazy by being a perfectionist at times, but the highlight of my day is making you happy!
On the weekends, you can find me spending time with my friends. I enjoy good conversations, great food, and good wine! I love to travel and spend time with my husband, my daughter, and our three Brittany Spaniels. I invest time in my workouts, staying mentally and physically healthy. I read business books to continue my education and better my coaching skills. Helping others grow and celebrating their accomplishments has always, and still continues to make my heart happy! I am a lifelong learner in all that I do. I am driven and passionate about my clients and my industry. I look forward to learning about you and having the opportunity to work with you and your hair. See you soon!
I'm Sarah. I am from this little-big city of Amarillo. My love for the beauty industry started early, as a little girl I loved playing dress-up and styling all the Barbies in my possession (even the antique ones that belonged to my mom and aunts). When I discovered scissors nothing was safe anymore. My mother tells me that when I was 4 years old I decided to give the curtains in the living room a trim. When I became an adult I knew exactly where I needed to be. Here I am 15 years in and I still love being a stylist. The relationships with my clients that I have built over the years are much more rewarding than my Barbies ever were. I enjoy creative collaborating with my clients to keep them on the latest trends. I am a mother of a energetic, theatrical little boy. Which makes me enjoy the simpler things in life and stay committed to my goals. I look forward to collaborating with you!

Hi ya'll! My name is Raylynn Cruz. I am a fellow Texan, originally from Canyon, Texas.
My husband and I have two beautiful daughters whom we are raising here in Amarillo. Family is a huge part of my life at home and at church. Besides doing hair, I love to read a good book or binge watch hair videos. I love that everyone is different, with distinct styles, textures and colors! After graduating high school, I attended Milan Institute of Cosmetology and obtained my cosmetology license in 2006. Later in 2014, I earned my Cosmetology Instructors License through Clarendon College. I am loving being apart of the Beauty Industry and my absolute favorite thing to do is help others love themselves! I look forward to meeting and working with a beautiful you!
Stylist Level 1
Hi everyone! My name is Gustavo, but you can call me Gus. I grew up in Dumas, a small town down the road - GO Demons!! I moved to Amarillo 8 years ago and haven't had a dull moment since. After working in the oilfields, welding and being a machine operator for most of my life, I decided to try something different. Something with more creativity and artistic freedom. So to the shock and surprise to all of my friends and family, in 2019, I attended the Milan Institute of Cosmetology. I initially wanted to become a barber. But, after working in a couple of shops around town, I realized that it felt too much like those mechanical jobs I've worked my entire life. I decided to try my hand at women's hair and fell in love with it. Working on women's hair is such a better fit for me. It's a more creative and artistic experience. I enjoy spending my off time with my wife and two big dogs. Exercising and coffee are my life sources. I can eat anything as long as it's cookies. Specifically - Chocolate chip. My goal is to get my hands on as much hair as I possibly can and then one day use my skills and knowledge to become an educator. It would be an honor and a pleasure to become your hairdresser, so come see me!
My name is Hanna - Amarillo girl born and raised! I moved to Houston briefly, but I moved back in 2020 and am so happy to be home! I am a Tascosa graduate and I grew up going to all the WT football games with my dad and brother. On my days off you can find me cuddling with my kitty cat, Eve, or working on my latest embroidery project. I decided to go to cosmetology school when I learned how to work with my own curly texture - something that I had fought with my ENTIRE childhood and teenage years. Curly hair is definitely my passion. When I lived in Houston I was able to assist under an amazing curl specialist whom I owe my love of curls too. I would love the opportunity to work with you soon!
