Lara, Esthetician, Owner
Born in England, Lara has been a Lawrence resident since 2006. She graduated from Bishop Seabury Academy and earned her professional credentials from B Street Design in Overland Park in 2010.
In the four years prior to opening Sensora, Lara's work at other salons solidified her reputation as Lawrence's premier esthetician in waxing, skin treatments and spray tanning.
"Owning my own spa has been a life-long dream. Sensora represents everything I want to offer my clients – relaxation, refreshment and revival in a luxurious environment."
Emily’s gift is making people feel beautiful, both inside and out. Since graduating from the Academy of Aesthetic Arts in Overland Park in 2009, she’s become adept at creating at-home regimens that help her clients feel refreshed, even days after visiting the salon.
Emily is looking forward to sharing her waxing expertise and her experience with Image Skincare products with Sensora’s clients.
“I grew up near here, and I’m so excited that Sensora is bringing a unique experience to the Lawrence community. I couldn’t imagine a better fit.”
Lani has been practicing in the beauty industry since 2011. She holds licenses in both esthetics and cosmetology, and also a certification for makeup artistry through Makeup Designory (MUD) Los Angeles. She loves helping others to feel beautiful and confident through skin care and lashes.
