Hi, my name is Laura Papenhagen and I hav been working at Cella-Mar since 2008. I went to Beauty School in the 80's when I was in Highschool. I got married right after high school and followed my husband who enlisted in the Marine Corps to North Carolina. This move ended up delaying my career in the beauty industry, but I was always working on my friends and family. I decided to come back in 2008 and was re-licensed at that point.
I have attended some big shows, and I am ESBI Certified, which was an extensive course in Up-Do's, Haircutting and Advanced coloring Techniques. I have always had an interest in hair and make-up and doing my best to make people feel good about themselves. I am really excited to be back in a salon! I am working at Cella-Mar occasionally on Saturdays because I also work during the week for the County of Monroe as the Director at Fairview ( a home for the disabled homeless of Monroe County).
My husband and I settled in Dundee in 1993 and had our first child in 1994, even though we are not originally from Dundee we consider it our home now. I have two boys, Josh and Nick and a jack russell terrier named Tilly. My Husband was on the Dundee School Board and we are very active in the Community. We attend Dundee Community Church of the Nazarene and My Husband is a Leas Pastor there and a Chaplin for Flower Hospital.
As you can see, I am very busy, but I enjoy doing hair so much that I work here to keep my hands in it and I enjoy pleasing my clients. I love doing new colors and makeovers for people, and I love doing Up-Do's and Special Occasion Make-Up.
