Laura’s involvement in aesthetics spans many years dealing with her own skin care issues and the desire for a more smooth complexion and radiant, youthful appearance. Her mission is to bring the patient-focus care that is at the core of her training and experience, coupled with her advanced medical knowledge in aesthetics, in order to guide patients through individualized aesthetic treatments, provide an enjoyable experience, and achieve successful results.

“My name is Emmi Heller and I am a hair stylist and colorist in Saratoga Springs and New York City. We are opening Summer 2022. I want to salon experience to be unique for clients from a comfort perspective. I really modeled the space over salons I’ve worked at in the city that made me feel more like I was at a friend’s apartment than a salon. I want everyone to feel like they’re taking time for themselves, rather than checking something off of their list to get done. The Chain is named after the iconic Fleetwood Mac song. I picked this name years ago, before the salon actual was even close to becoming a reality. I of course have always loved the song, but I also really wanted the name to stand out in a mysterious way. I didn’t want a name that you knew outright was a hair salon. I felt like something as ambiguous as The Chain gave it some edge. I am always accepting new clients and there are chairs available for stylists as well!” Services include cut & color, blow out, keratin and blonding treatments. thechainsaratoga.com
