MEET LAUREN & SHERRY
When Lauren Jackson and her mother Sherry Welch opened Renata Salons December 15, 2003, they changed the concept of what salons had been in the past. Renata Salons is located in Grapevine’s Dorris House, a beautiful Victorian home built in 1896.
Lauren began her career in 2000 as a stylist. After years of passion, drive, and hard work she found herself as an editorial stylist in NYC and Los Angeles. She worked back stage at Fashion week and taught the new trends as an educator around the country. Her background inspired the way she runs her salon and the way she is constantly evolving and growing the brand and her team. Renata Salons is devoted to staying on top of recent trends and is committed to staying current in the industry.
Renata Salons is consistently providing their stylists with education and believes that holding classes and continual growth is what keeps stylists inspired and maintains a level of expertise in the salon.
"I believe education is vital to keep stylists inspired and growing. Any time your stylists are inspired, and are loving what they do, they overflow creativity. Education empowers stylists to create a look that makes their clients happy!"

History of the Dorris House
1896 Dorris House -- Dr. Thomas Benton Dorris, one of Grapevine's early physicians, arrived in 1885 and built this Queen Anne style Victorian home at 224 East College Street for his wife, Ann Eliza, and daughter, Ione. The house features a square tower, fish scale shingles, and turned and scroll-sawn brackets. Dr. Dorris served as surgeon for the railroad and taught a nursing class during WWI. The house is symbolic of the new prosperity enjoyed by Grapevine after the arrival of the railroad in 1888. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
