Katy McLaughlin was introduced to the beauty industry at a very young age, playing beauty shop with her two older sisters. Throughout school she spent a lot of time plucking eyebrows for teammates in the dugout and braiding hair on the sidelines of volleyball games. Upon graduating, her plan to go to cosmetology school was put on hold until she earned her degree. After working, getting married and having two children, she graduated from the University of Houston - Downtown and established her career as a marketing manager for a private preschool franchise. She realized, however, that the pull of the beauty industry was still there, so she decided that she wanted to open a salon. She quit her job and enrolled in cosmetology school. After earning her license and building her clientele, she dove head first into the idea of Hair and There Mobile Salon. She took her ideas and made them a reality which now allows her to continue her life's calling, providing an experience for her clients which they can't get anywhere else.
