How Bridal Hair Stylist Laura Kaszoni Built Her Brand

Through persistence, hard work and a smart social media strategy, Lala’s Updos dominates Instagram with more than 350K followers.

When Laura Kaszoni came to America from Romania in 2006 with her one-year-old daughter, all they brought with them was a small suitcase, $300 and big dreams for the future.

Initially she planned to stay in the U.S. for five years, but success in the beauty industry—fueled by her passion for hair styling—blossomed into a full-time career. “The reason I came to the states was to make sure that my daughter would have the opportunity to build a life in this country in the future. Five years later, I felt at home here and never left,” Laura Kaszoni says.

Built on the American dream and one family’s legacy, rapidly expanding Jinny United offers one-stop shopping to beauty retailers.

Last November, Eddie Jhin, president of Atlanta-based Jinny United, was in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, to receive the keys to the newest warehouse for Jinny Beauty Supply, the company’s flagship multicultural beauty distribution business. While opening this New York-adjacent, 145,000-square-foot facility marks a new level of success, the distributor was already very well-established with more than 1.4 million square feet of warehouse space in 11 cities across the United States.
