Red Ladies 2024: Leah Lattus

Story by Liesel Schmidt | Portrait by Jonathan Thorpe


Being in the beauty industry, hair is an important aspect of Leah Lattus’s work. As the owner and founder of Holistic Hair Studio, she’s interwoven her passion for hair with her desire to promote holistic beauty and sustainability. “I’m committed to guiding individuals towards a transformative journey of self-expression through their hair,” she says. “With a focus on holistic methods using organic products and sustainable practices, I have established a nurturing environment that prioritizes the well-being of my clients as well as that of my stylists and our planet.”


"With 44 percent of women in the United States grappling with some form of heart disease, the urgency to take action is undeniable. by coming together to support initiatives like the Go Red movement, we can make a tangible difference in the lives of countless women, promoting better heart health and improving outcomes for generations to come."



Lattus, whose husband and brother served in the armed forces, supports Veterans Moving Forward through her work at the salon. She also finds great inspiration in the late Princess Diana's legacy of compassion, service and advocacy to volunteer her time and skills to provide free haircuts at homeless shelters, hospices and has worked with various chapters of the Boys & Girls clubs. “I aim to not only uplift the spirits of individuals facing difficult circumstances, but also to provide them with a sense of dignity and self-worth,” she says.


In addition to direct volunteer work, Lattus also organizes fundraisers for nonprofit organizations such as Children with Hair Loss. “I am honored to contribute to initiatives that make a tangible difference in the lives of others,” Lattus says, “particularly children facing medical challenges.”
