Meet Leslie Marie Gaensel of LMG Beauty Factory in Palm Springs

Today we’d like to introduce you to Leslie Marie Gaensel.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
At the age of 17, I walked into a local salon with my friend to get her hair done and instantly was hooked. That day I walked out with a job as their new receptionist and could not have been happier. From there I worked my way up to shampooist/assistant, graduated high school and signed myself up for cosmetology school. I was lucky to have had such a great support system and ended up staying at the same location once I graduated with my cosmetology license. Fast forward, 13 years later and an extensive loyal clientele, I knew I wanted to take the next step and follow my dreams…open my own salon, LMG Beauty Factory. Our doors have been open for four years strong and I’m happy to announce that we will be expanding and moving to a bigger location in the near future.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Fortunately, it has been a smooth road for me but I have to credit my hard work and dedication. I have put my heart and soul into my salon and really didn’t let anything get in my way.

Please tell us about LMG Beauty Factory.
We are a full-service salon specializing in Balayage, blondes, lived in hair, color corrections, braids and basically anything that is on trend. We love to follow styles and bring our clients’ vision to life.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I would definitely have to say that I would have gone to a cosmetology school abroad, like Italy! I would have loved to learn in a different environment and experience a different culture while at school.
