About Me

 Hi there, I am Helen Erickson and as a hairstylist I strive to keep up with the current styles and trends, vowing to never be left in the dust of the ever evolving beauty industry. I take pride in my work and know that every head that walks out my door has my name on it.  My main concern is the integrity of your hair as well as to creating a trusting relationship that we can work together in reaching your hair goals.  You can find me nestled away in a private studio located in Sola Salons of Walnut Creek, California.  I am looking for clients that want a healthier approach to hairstyling. It's never too late to reinvent your look.

My Philosophy

I am a mom of two kids, one grown and one still at home. After the birth of my last child I developed a severe reaction to the color line and wet line I was using.  I then went on a quest to find safer products that would not irritate my skin as well as affect my asthma. I was already using toxic free cleaners and eating organic so thought why not take it all the way at work. After experimenting with many lines I have found an array of products that I feel fit every situation. While I grow my website you will learn more about my products, their benefits, ingredients, and how my goal is to respect the Earth while providing beauty with a conscious.
