Erica Edwards

Creative Director : Owner

Through Aveda, Erica has received advanced Head Mapping and Color Magic training along with being a part of the Aveda New York Fashion Week Team. Her passion for being an excellent stylist has driven her to accomplish every goal she sets. She specializes in “fixing”; whether it be a cut or color you’re unhappy with, her goal is to transform it into a beautiful, functional look. The extensive training she has received and the experience she has acquired over the years equips her with the tools to communicate, formulate, price appropriately, schedule precisely, and achieve with flying Aveda colors every time.

Erica spends her free time volunteering wherever she sees she can help, frequently visiting Hospice patients who are unable to come to the salon for various reasons. Other than volunteering, Erica has a family of her own in which she enjoys every moment possible with her husband Aaron Edwards, and her two beautiful, prodigious children Dane Edwards (eight y/o) and Delaney Edwards (twelve y/o). Naming the salon after their children was the easiest decision in creating it, besides choosing Aveda products to work with.

Erica always looks forward to a challenge and a new head of hair to work with, she can’t wait to see you in her chair!
