Early life, family
Laurence Bédard was born on 15 July 1993 in Quebec, Canada, so under the sign of Cancer, and holding Canadian nationality. When a young girl, she moved several times with her family, and lived in Montreal and Laval. Laurence has never mentioned anything about her parents, trying to keep her private life low-key; she’s never posted any photos of her parents nor revealed their names. Laurence has an elder brother whose name is Jean-Philippe.
Nothing at all is known about Laurence’s educational background, except that she matriculated from her local high school in Montreal in 2011, and then studied the course for hairdressers and barbers in 2018. She never mentioned anything about the college or university she graduated from, so nothing is known about her degree, if any.
Laurence has always been interested in fashion and beauty, so she decided to connect her life with the profession of a barber. She worked in several salons and barbershops until she received an offer from Jim Le Barbier Inc. Located in Cunard, Laval, this barbershop is the dream company to work in for many barbers. Laurence joined the team of 15 experienced barbers in March 2019 – one can see her portfolio and work-in-progress videos in Jim Le Barbier Instagram account, which has over 14,200 subscribers.
Laurence compliments her hairdressing job with her modelling career – she acts as an alternative model and promotes her portfolio with the help of Instagram. She soon became a sensation, attracting two million subscribers with her explicit looks. Her body is covered with many blackwork tattoos, which soon helped her to be noticed by such brands as Slimwave and Kimama with whom Laurence signed contracts, also becoming FashionNova’s ambassador. As such, she posts lots of photos of herself in the clothes provided by the brand: dresses, lingerie, swimsuits, etc. Laurence has another commercial contract with the brand of energy drinks, BangEnergy, appearing in their commercials and posting multiple videos of her walking or chilling out enjoying the drinks. Laurence has had multiple collaborations with another alternative model, Valérie Cossette, also a FashionNova ambassador and BangEnergy Elite model.
Personal life, ex-boyfriend Joey Filiatrault
Laurence was in a relationship with Joey Filiatrault, a military combat engineer and a Canadian veteran. He speaks mostly French which was not a problem for Laurence since she also speaks both English and French perfectly. The couple dated for several months, posting a lot of mutual photos since October 2018. Their followers often commented they matched perfectly since they both had a lot of tattoos and enjoyed taking pictures of each other. The couple was even mentioned in the Inked Magazine at the end of 2018. However, Laurence and Joey have recently broken up; both of them deleted all mutual photos they ever posted on their Instagram accounts, leaving only personal and commercial publications. As for now, Joey does a lot of ju-jitsu and loves hiking with her dog. Neither Laurence, nor Joey announced any updates on their new affairs. Laurence doesn’t have any kids.
