Thank you for visiting my website! My name is Erin, and I am a freelance hairstylist and makeup artist, based in New York City. I'm also a New York State licensed cosmetologist.
While I've always had a passion for the beauty industry, it wasn’t until after graduating from college with a degree in education that I made the decision to pursue my passion in hair and makeup. I attended cosmetology school in my hometown of Syracuse, NY, and quickly gained the attention of my educators, and participated in onstage events, as well as helping to educate my peers in class. I also caught the attention of my future mentor while in cosmetology school, where I was offered a position at his salon before I graduated. During that time, I was able to shadow with my future team and clients, while gaining a priceless education from a Global Educator for Aveda. After graduating, I attended many educational classes that helped shape and nurture my new career, including advanced hairstyling classes, as well as learning current makeup trends and techniques from some of the top makeup artists in the country.
When I took the step to move to New York City to pursue my passion, my work and my career flourished. I constantly seek out new techniques and trends to stay fresh and challenged. I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing artist and on some incredible projects. My work has been featured with:
