Erica showed interest in the beauty industry at a very young age. She recognized that hair, makeup and fashion were the ways in which she expressed her art and creativity. Having a mother in the field also contributed to her passion towards becoming a stylist. Growing up in Maplewood, Erica was always familiar with Fringe. She quickly realized that it was “the” place to start her career. She was also eager about being able to give back to the community that she loves. Erica began her apprenticeship at Fringe in the summer of 2012. She has completed the 52-week in-salon education program at Fringe, attended numerous advanced education classes at the Aveda Institute, and has attended Aveda Congress 2013 in Minneapolis.
Upon her arrival at Fringe, Erica immediately fell in love with Aveda. She fully believes in Aveda’s mission of making our world a better place by giving back to society. Always giving in nature, Erica loves to interact and help people. She looks forward to accepting new challenges and is always striving towards perfecting her techniques.
She thoroughly enjoys the welcoming atmosphere at Fringe, and working alongside her creative peers. Erica is passionate about haircutting and men’s grooming.
