I Help women embrace their inner

through lived in hair color, modern grey coverage & cuts that enhance their natural beauty... even if you only get your hair done 1-4x a year.

My favorite place


As a low maintenance color specialist, my goal is to help you embrace your natural color with subtle enhancements that make you feel like the best version of yourself. Whether you're a natural blonde, brunette, or you even have some greys sparkling through, my lived-in color techniques will give you the modern color story you've been dreaming of.

Equally as much as I love coloring, I love haircutting too! I believe that the haircut is the foundation of a great color and I love creating all shapes from precision to textured on straight and curly textures.

Outside the salon I'm probably totally feral somewhere in a barn, or in the woods. It's not unusual to find me on a reading a book while I'm trail riding my horse, Delite with my 11 yr old black lab mix, Wrangler, tagging along.  I've also spent quite a bit of time traveling these last couple years, which led to me creating a side business building websites for hair stylists to give me even more flexibility to travel.

Hey, I'm Laura

A Warm Welcome

When you arrive at Dani King Hair Studio for your appointment come on in the front door - our welcome mat is so cute! I'll great you with a smile, snacks and drinks. We've always got good music on (sometimes it country, todays hits, or even metal 🤘🏻).

We'll sit down for a 


When I bring you back to my chair, the first thing we'll do is have a conversation. I want to understand your goals for our visit, hopes for the future, and your lifestyle. I won't pick up my tools or even put a cape on you until we are 100% on the same page and you feel confident moving forward.

PS, I have these super soft comfy robes for you to wear instead of being choked by a cape your whole color appointment!

Follow up email

When you're in my chair I'm going to share all my knowledge with you on how to best care for your hair so you can have success long term. However, it's a lot to remember and I totally expect you to forget half of it! Which is exactly why I'll send you an email recapping all the home care and maintenance options I recommend for you.

**We carry very little retail in the studio. I'm happy to custom order for you to pick up in the salon, but mostly I send you home with samples and links to purchase the products I've had the best results with online.

Sound good to you?

If your gut is telling you that this experience is the right one for you, I can't wait to connect!

I just want to say that Laura is absolutely
AMAZING. As a new client of hers, I can confidently say that I will continue to go back to her. Laura took the time to understand me and my vision and knew exactly how to bring it to life. She made me feel comfortable and she educated me on the products I should be using at home and how to properly maintain my color. I highly recommend Laura because she will not disappoint.


I had my first haircut with Laura Nelson today and OH MY GOODNESS!! I FINALLY found someone who isn't afraid to use their scissors and give my hair shape!! I have been trying to find someone to cut my hair like this for literal years. I am so happy I was referred to Laura and would never hesitate to refer her to anyone else.
Thank you, Laura!!

Shop Eufora

I'm a *little* bit obsessed with Eufora! I made the switch in 2020 when I was looking for a healthy haircare alternative in the hope that reducing chemicals and carcinogens in my daily life would help my hormonal migraines. Not only did my migraines disappear, my guests and I all saw incredible results with our hair and even skin. 

What Makes Eufora Different

It's plant based, fragrance free, and unlike most brands (professional and not) its actually SUPER concentrated. Eufora does not add any water, and instead uses certified organic aloe as the base of their products. Because aloe has a lighter molecular weight than water, it won't weigh your hair down but it will give you tons of benefit!

PS, when you shampoo use a VERY SMALL amount of product with a LOT of water.
