Meet Our Team
Meet Tzigane, Lead Stylist, mentor, Paul Mitchell National Trainer, and the owner of “Layla” A Social Salon. Originally from Zimbabwe, Tzigane moved to Las Vegas when she was 14 with her mother and stepfather and has been here since. Initially a communications major at CSN, she fell in love with hair while working at the front desk at a prestigious salon in the valley and decided to attend Euphoria Institute of Beauty Arts and Sciences and graduated in 2007. In 2011 she took the leap to open her own studio salon her studio quickly blossomed and soon after started growing her team in 2015. With her team thriving and quickly growing on their own, Tzigane knew there was more out there for herself and her staff and opened her first, full-size salon, Layla, in March 2017.
As a massive believer in extended education, she is certified in multiple extension techniques, cut, color, and keratin smoothing systems and has a true passion for blonding. In. 2012, she decided to take her education even further and became a Paul Mitchell National Educator and in 2023 was promoted to a National Trainer- where she now trains up-and-coming educators. Within the first 4 years of opening Layla, Tzigane has been featured in numerous publications, awarded Affluence of Talent by Deluxe Version magazine twice, nominated as Top 100 Women in Las Vegas, and won Best Salon of 2021 by the Las Vegas Weekly. Undoubtedly this is just the beginning for Tzigane and the staff at Layla.
SALON DIRECTOR & LEAD STYLIST
Meet Pam, a Lead Stylist and the Salon Director of Layla Social. Originally from the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Pam moved to Vegas in 2004, where she later attended the Paul Mitchell School. At an early stage in her cosmetology career, she knew she wanted to master Men’s Grooming and dived deep into education to perfect her craft. She is now the Men’s Grooming Specialist at Layla and our very own in-house educator on all things men.
However, her forte doesn’t stop there – Pam loves everything color, especially blonding. She’s the perfect stylist that can take care of the whole family. As Tzigane’s right-hand woman (and first employee- joining way back in the studio days), it was only a matter of time before her boss energy took over and she evolved into a role of leadership. In 2020, Pam assumed the position of Salon Director at Layla Social and shortly after the salon won Best Salon by the Las Vegas Weekly in 2021. In her free time, she enjoys traveling and always has her eyes set on the next excursion, especially if it involves a concert! When she isn’t traveling, Pam loves to relax at home and Netflix and chill…. With her three dogs, that is.
Meet Marina, a Stylist at Layla Social, who started her hair journey at Paul Mitchell the school Las Vegas, where she honored and cutting, color, and texture.

Marina has a true knack for product knowledge and educating her guests on how to care for, and maintain, their hair at home. She is also incredibly creative and loves coming up with bright vivid formulas for her guests- turning their hair into colorful works of art.
