Lawrence Washington

Celebrity Stylist Lawrence Washington always had a passion for beauty and has made his mark on the industry in a big way. Not only has he styled big-time beauties like Jennifer Holliday, Ciara and Serena Williams, he also stars on the hit show, Fashion Queens.


While Lawrence Washington has styled many celebrities, he doesn’t want to be called a “celebrity stylist and he shares why…

“Being a celebrity stylist was never my focus,” says the mane pro. “It’s always been imbedded in me to be a salon professional and I learned that the salon is where my spirit is—so that’s what I am. I’m a salon professional who does celebrities from time to time.”
