About LS

The Artist in Me

Lavetta Schneider, formerly Mrs. Nevada-America 2014, has over 14 years of beauty and hair styling expertise. Her artistry has been featured at various red carpet events, fashion shows and magazines featuring celebrities such as, Nicole Scherzinger, Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian, Jenny McCarthy and many others. Her exceptional talent has given the world a small glimpse at the true gifting and passion that lies within her.

At the young age of 19, Lavetta fell in love with the beauty industry at the Warren-Tricomi Salon in New York City. Her drive led her to assist the salon's co-owner, Edward Tricomi in West Hollywood in 2005. Her skills landed her a career move to Las Vegas to open up Colorist Kim Vo's flagship salon at the Mirage Hotel and Casino as the Artistic Styling Director. She gained valuable experience and developed a high end profile clientele throughout the years which caught the eye of Colorist Michael Boychuck, who recruited Lavetta as a Hair Artisan and Educator for his salon at the Caesar's Palace. After having four hand surgeries within a seven year time span, Lavetta realized that her drive and passion was finally catching up with her and decided to take time away from the industry to heal. During her hiatus she obtained a real estate license and worked for KW Commercial Real Estate division and although she excelled in her new adventure she realized how much she missed the creative side of the hair and makeup industry. 

It is with great excitement that Lavetta has made the decision to return to the beauty industry to focus on dry styling and makeup artistry. She looks forward to reigniting her creativity and adding a touch of sparkle to this new chapter of her life.
