Here at Lauren's Hope, we're always busy, and that's how we like it! We're busy getting ready for the holidays and planning fab new products for 2014 as well. We're designing and cleaning, and prepping, and yes, even playing a bit! So today, I thought I'd take you on a little behind-the-scenes tour of what's happening here in Riverside, Missouri.
Imagine getting a compliment on your Lauren’s Hope bracelet while getting your hair done, only to find out that your stylist is THE Lauren of Lauren’s Hope! That’s just what happened to a Dallas-area woman (right) whose medical alert bracelet caught the eye of her stylist recently, because 25-year-old cosmetologist Lauren Philips can spot a Lauren’s Hope design a mile off. After all, she IS Lauren.
