Laura Johnson

For Laura, hair and beauty have been a life-long calling. After graduating from the cosmetology program at the Aveda Institute Minneapolis, she went to work as an apprentice at Spalon Montage, a premier salon in the Twin Cities. Laura loves providing color services. She adores Aveda’s hair color system because it allows her to create custom, one of a kind color for each and every client, with no two people ever looking the same!

Laura’s favorite service is foilayage! Similar to balayage, it creates an even more blended look with brighter ends and darker roots- using foils for people that want bright blonde hair that is low-maintenance.

Laura also enjoys providing blow-outs and styles that create volumized, smooth, and beautiful looks for all hair types. She is passionate about educating each client on how to create the look he or she desires.

Fringe is dedicated to providing its team with the best Aveda education and Laura is continually taking classes to learn new styles, trends, and techniques to share with her clients.

Carrie Jurek

Acupuncturist/Front Office Coordinator

Check her out on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/blackbirdacupuncture/

Carrie is, by definition, an Aveda addict. When the Barron native first discovered that she had a head of corkscrew curls in a family of stick straight hair, her mom brought her straight to the Twin Cities to find an Aveda salon so she could learn to befriend her hair. Fifteen years later and she has never traded in her Aveda products for alternatives. On naturally curly days or flat-ironed days, she swears that no other products compare to keep her hair manageable and beautiful.

When not working as our Front Office Coordinator, Carrie is as an Acupuncturist and is the owner of Blackbird Acupuncture Clinic which is located in the lower level of Fringe Salon! She specializes in cosmetic acupuncture, sports medicine, and general healthcare. Carrie is a licensed acupuncturist with a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. She is a Diplomate of Acupuncture, certified nationally by the NCCAOM, and is licensed in the states of Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Carrie firmly believes that taking care of your body and mind (which includes an occasional salon, spa, and acupuncture treatment) is the trick to good health, feeling beautiful, and being the best ‘you’ possible!
