Erika (She/Her)

Senior Stylist

Started career in 2009

I’m a technically-driven creative specializing in cutting and styling hair.  I use both a razor and shears to showcase texture, movement, and bring out your favorite features.  I love to create soft, airy layers, cool shags, piecey bobs, and soft pixie cuts.  I also LOVE adding bangs to your look for an impactful change.  

I draw inspiration from the beauty of nature, simple embellishments, and imperfections that create visual harmony.   I’m interested in cooking, arranging and rearranging my apartment, yoga, hiking, making things with my hands, and hanging out with my cat - Sweet Lime.

Some of my favorite hair products are New Wash from Hairstory for cleansing, and for air-drying I love Hairstory’s Hair Balm.  On my own hair, I’ve been loving Style from Cult + King and I also love to use Cult + King’s Balm to add a bit of piecey-ness and moisture to dry hair and use it daily as my eye cream!

Movies: When I’m in the mood for a familiar laugh, I love to watch Wet Hot American Summer.  I can basically quote the whole movie at this point.

Music: I'm currently listening to the new album from Hiatus Kaiyote

I’m still feeling very new to LA, so I’m excited to explore what this city loves to offer.  I’m looking forward to seeing lots of live music, going to art shows, trying out cool restaurants, and I always love a good beach day.

Lastly, I value distinctive idiosyncrasies over perfect symmetry and appreciate that beauty is subjective.  Having spent over a decade in the hair industry, I have come to realize that the way we wear our hair is truly a reflection of our inner lives.  I believe that getting a haircut is an act of self-love.  And in a world that sells insecurity, taking pride in your self-image is a radical act.
