Gregory founded Laru Ni Hati in 1990 after graduating from New York University with degrees in Urban Planning/Economics, and working as an Urban Planner in Manhattan.
As an entrepreneur looking for a new adventure and wanting to provide high quality professional hair service to New Mexico, I graduated from:
the Aveda Institute of NM in 1996, followed in short succession by:
Vidal Sassoon (Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami)
Jacques Dessange, Paris
American Crew, Denver
Bumble and Bumble, NYC.
I love my clients and meeting and exceeding their expectations for decades. Facing the historic recession of 2008, with dedication to loyal staff and the Nob Hill neighborhood, I purchased our building on Route 66.
Needing a balance between city and country life, I bought a ranch near Mountainair, NM. Using range restoration techniques from the Quivira Coalition, I began raising cattle while simultaneously became aware of the critical value of water and wanted to study natural resource law. In 2010 I returned to school to earn a J.D., concentrating on the Natural Resource Certificate program, but also the Business and Tax area of law. Graduating in 2013, I became a prosecuting attorney for the People of New Mexico in Socorro, Estancia, and Santa Fe.
I now offer my legal services to the public in the areas of Criminal, Property, Water, Business and Tax and Zoning and Planning - co

Yielding a more natural look than traditional foils, the balayage might be the most requested hair trend in salons. For a balayage, your colorist paints the color onto your hair, as opposed to traditional highlights, where your hair is separated, colored, and wrapped in foil. The hand-painted technique gives you a more natural look with a less obvious grow-out. Request a mix of highlights and lowlights for a sun-kissed glow.
The passé ombré paved the way for a more subdued style—the sombré.Instead, Papanikolas chooses the sombré technique for a softer way to achieve that summer grown-out look. Like the ombré, the sombré starts out dark at the roots and then transitions down the hair shaft to a lighter shade. However, the key to a polished sombré is incorporating more variation of color to avoid the ombré's unsightly line of delineation.
