Hailing from York, Pennsylvania, Lacey has lived in South Beach for the past three years. Lacey was influenced by art and sculpture throughout her high school years and translated this art background into her vision as a hair stylist.
Lacey began cosmetology school in Pennsylvania and attended the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica after completion of beauty school — learning a great deal about the geometry involved in cutting hair. Lacey applied and was accepted to Vidal Sasson, Miami and moved to South Beach to start training. Within ten months, Lacey was able to move up and become a stylist. Lacey now splits her time between Vidal Sassoon and freelance work. Lacey is a highly sought-after stylist for fashion and magazine photo shoots in Miami.
Lacey never thought she'd end up in "Shear Genius." Lacey found out about the open calls on the last day they were being held in Miami. Lacey rushed to get there at the last minute and ended up with a spot in the competition.
