Erin has been trained by some of the top stylists at Wella International in hair cutting, colouring and updo’s. As a former advocate for Sebastian Professionals, Erin also had the opportunity to work backstage at ABA beauty shows in Montreal and Toronto.

With a passion for competitions, Erin has participated in a variety of events, from local Ottawa shows to international contests. “It’s a great way to really let your creativity flow, with no boundaries—scary sometimes, but very fun and empowering.”

Erin says she loves how the industry continually changes, something that’s been a constant since she began her career as a stylist in 2008. “There are always opportunities to learn something new.”

But her key to success, she says, is the inspiration she gets from the people she meets in the industry. “I believe it’s important to draw strength from the people around us, so I make sure to surround myself with people who motivate me to do my very best.”
