I have spent the past 17 Years in the beauty industry and since graduating from beauty school have found my true talent and passion in hair. I have built a strong base of very loyal customers for whom I am deeply grateful. I have been a Salon Owner/Operator for the past 14 years and gone through all the ups and downs of this unique position more than once. Three years ago I purchased Allure Hair Salon and with the help of my friends, family and clients have a salon that I can truly call home. I knew that my passion for hair could not be contained just to the salon. I felt the need to share what I knew with others. 

In 2000 I became a Cosmetology Instructor and began teaching at local Orange County beauty colleges such as:  
• Advance Beauty College
• Coastline Beauty College 
• Asian-American International Beauty College 
• Colleen O’Haras Beauty Academy (COBA)
• Elite Beauty College

I quickly realized that there was a very large gap in what was taught in beauty school and what the real world salon demanded from a stylist. I developed my curriculum and opened Angel Advanced Academy to help fill the gap. Tracey La & Associates (formerly Angel Advanced Academy) is advanced training for hairstylists who want that extra edge to help advance their carrer. Tracey La & Associates specializes in teaching advanced techniques in:
• Haircutting
• Haircoloring 
• Corrective Color
• Blonding 
• Highlights

In 2004, I was hired as a National Color Educator for John Paul Mitchell Systems and responsible for in-salon education/training for the salon owners and stylists. The goal is to make sure stylists know how to use the products to their fullest advantage and to raise the artistic level for our profession through the creative use of John Paul Mitchell Systems products. I was in charge of teaching Advanced Hands-on Hair Seminars for the licensed hair stylists who want to enhance their Haircutting and Haircoloring skills. 

Most recently I have produced a series of educational DVDs specifically for the Vietnamese hairstylist who wants to enhance their skills, put my status with Paul Mitchell as inactive, opened a dedicated Advanced Training Facility (Tracey La & Associates) and gone back to Vietnam and Cambodia to teach haircolor formulations, innovative techniques/placements, and professional application to salon owners and finally launched my web siteMost recently I have produced a series of educational DVDs specifically for the Vietnamese hairstylist who wants to enhance their skills, put my status with Paul Mitchell as inactive, opened a dedicated Advanced Training Facility (Tracey La & Associates) and gone back to Vietnam and Cambodia to teach haircolor formulations, innovative techniques/placements, and professional application to salon owners and finally launched my website: www.traceyla.com
