Lulu Hair Design, inside Harrah’s at Stateline and also located Silver Legacy Resort & Casino in Reno, is helping Danielle Conway with increasing medical bills and associated cost with the recent passing of her daughter Kyra. I received an e-mail from Nicole Montoya who is a longtime friend of Danielle and a hair designer at LuLu Hair Design. Truly Lulu Hair Design is a unique beauty experience whose friendly staff will pamper you in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Get a new look, or just simply relax, but most important help them raise money.
