Magnolia Jane Salon owner, Laura McGovern, traded big city life for a slower pace when she moved from Charlotte to New Bern. Her passion for beauty and style began at a young age, and after studying at Queens University she followed her heart and attended The Aveda Institute to pursue cosmetology. Laura has trained and worked alongside the world's most talented artists of the renowned Jon Ric Hair Spa in Charlotte & Pierre Michele in New York City. Her vision to bring a touch of metropolitan glam mixed with southern charm has been a wild success. She is committed to providing a salon & spa atmosphere that is top of the line. With a big heart and open mind she builds lasting relationships with her guests and creates a memorable experience. Although her talent and skills are beyond fabulous it is more than "doing hair" to her. New Bern has a very special place in her heart and she loves working within the community to create positive change.
