After graduating from college, Joscelyn Laurence found that she was unhappy with her career choice and didn?t know what to do about it. That uncertainty faded, however, when she decided to take a leap of faith and switch careers. The jump landed her at Paul Mitchell The School Dallas, where she learned the ins and outs of the beauty industry. Today, the experienced stylist has stepped into her latest role as owner of Outside the Lines Salon, where she treats each client with individualized attention as she snips hair into the latest styles. Joscelyn also smoothes frizz with a restorative Awapuhi Wild Ginger KeraTriplex treatment, adds hair flair with rooster feathers, and lends manes prismatic pop with a caramelizing technique that results in honey-colored tones and free drinks from candy tycoons at the bar.
