Erin Henry


I’ve been a licensed professional in the industry for 18 years. I began my career in Chicago working with top stylists at a prestigious Redken salon. After 7 years of extensive training in coloring and cutting I ventured into freelance work doing weddings & black tie events. In 2007 I brought my passion for hair to Florida to meet my passion for sun and sand.🏖 

Since then I’ve focused on what I enjoy most, creating looks from start to finish with color and cut that are not only modern but functional for realistic wear and maintenance.
