Erin // Owner & Stylist
Hey guys! I'm Erin, salon owner and stylist. I have been doing hair for 10 years and I couldn't imagine doing anything else. Since I was young I have LOVED hair, and I've always dreamed of opening my own salon. In August of 2016, that dream became a reality. I am so lucky to have an amazing clientele that supported my new adventure, as well as a phenomenal staff of talented stylists by my side!
Each person that sits in my chair is a new blank canvas! I love a good transformation, and a challenge. Color is my heart and soul. I have made blonding a focal point for myself. Studying and mastering the technique of balayage has been a passion of mine. I am big on continuing education and I love learning new techniques. I attend yearly hair shows including Fashion Focus and Premiere Hairshow, as well as online classes and webinars to bring you the best and latest styles and hair trends!
The other love in life is my little baby Louis! He is a teacup yorkie and my side kick. Louis comes to work with me everyday! If I am not at the salon, you’ll find me traveling or spending time with family and friends.

Lauren // Stylist
Hi! Lauren here. I'm going on my sixth year as a cosmetologist. I joined Erin and Slay Hair Studio in the beginning of 2017 hoping to expand my knowledge and build a local clientele. I have always wanted to do hair and I am lucky enough to have found my calling in life. I especially love to do color. I love the challenge of making someone blonde, and I'm good at it! I am confident in the chemistry behind bleach and how to apply it to different hair types while keeping the hair strong and healthy. I keep up with industry trends through scheduled classes, events, forums and social media.
When I'm not the salon I love spending time with my 2 dogs, as well as doing anything outside.

Marisa // Stylist
Hello! I'm Marisa, and I joined the Slay Hair Studio team in April of 2018. I have been a licensed cosmetologist since 2013 and I've loved every minute of it. What I love most about the beauty industry is that it’s always changing. Every day behind the chair is different! I am consistent with my continuing education to ensure that I am always prepared to deliver you your desired results! Color is my favorite service as well as manicures!
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, and I love to travel!
Louis vuitton // Shop Dog
Hello, ladies! I'm Louis, the salon mascot, welcoming committee, and security department. As soon as the front door opens, I will be the one greeting you and welcoming you to the salon. I appreciate a belly rub and a baby voice telling me how cute I am. I am a hypoallergenic, non-shedding breed so you can still love me even if you have allergies.
I tend to sleep on the job… my bachelor pad is located next to my mom's styling station so if you can't find me, that's most likely where I am. I also like to make myself comfortable, so don't be alarmed when I help myself to snuggling on your lap. Occasionally, you will see me sun bathing in the front window, as well. Feel free to stop in and pet me, even if you don't have an appointment!
When I'm not at the salon making sure things are running smoothly, I enjoy running around my yard chasing birds and bunnies and spending quality time with my mom.
