With over 17 licensed years in the craft + counting, it was time to form a handpicked team. The idea for crown began in a sketch book, but the vibe of our shop is deeply rooted in the world Erin + her sister Grace were raised: hair + music. There was also a huge gap in Buffalo’s hair world. After years of working for others, they just had to do it their way.
After years of DIY hair, the real quest for higher learning started immediately during hair school, taking part in every class offered. With an educational background including Bumble & bumble U, ateliers hosted by masters like Oribe, Michael Angelo, and Jayne Matthews to name a few, as well as major brand education from groups like Surface, Pravana, Goldwell + Aveda; the goal is well-rounded. If you deep-dive the internet enough, you may even find the episode of VH1’s TransForm Me featuring Erin + Laverne Cox masterminding a major hair transformation.
Now it’s been a few years of being an owner, stylist, teacher + artist all at the same time. Taking part in business coaching has become just as important as expanding knowledge within the hair craft. Building this brand + elevating the team is Erin's biggest goal for the future.
