If you’ve found your way into Eric’s chair, consider yourself lucky.

There is something truly magical about his spirit that emanates these perpetually youthful yet deeply mature, knowing and wise vibes. I mean, come on, how could anyone resist that?

His background in public relations brings a unique perspective to the industry, and it totally reflects in his work. From free and organic styles to meticulous and structured cuts, he deeply reveres the art and skilled discipline it takes to pick up hair and know exactly what it’s going to do when he starts working his magic.

As a self-professed wine connoisseur, on any given day you might find him kicked back with his husband and pups, a delectable glass of the driest white in hand, binge-watching a show or devouring a new novel. However, if it’s in the summertime, you’re more likely to find him cruising around in his jeep. He loves traveling and getting lost in time with the top-down, pups and husband still right by his side.

A confident stylist who understands cutting principles and delivers the freshest styles and latest trends, every time? Um, yes, please!

Time to shake things up a bit.

Crystal is one of the newer stylists in the Shannon Aleksandr’s family, and she’s just as comfortable as a part of the team as she is in her own skin. A former factory worker, she refused to “hate her job in her 60’s,” and found what she truly loves in this industry. If bright eyed and bushy tailed had a face, it’d be hers. She is a sponge when it comes to learning and practicing new techniques.

She is humbled by the array of diverse clients she experiences in this profession, and looks forward to every new experience. Her intense energy and quick wit pair exquisitely well with her passionate nature and immense devotion to listening to her client’s needs. She can’t be outdone.

She married her high school sweetheart, Omar, and they have three children she dedicates her free time to. “We love to picnic on this little lake, and catch baby turtles.” Excuse us, while we all melt.

She rocks her own style, but an open-mind, a broad perspective and hard work are always at the top of her to-do list around the salon.
