He really took the time to listen to my concerns and worked with my hair to make it look absolutely beautiful. I have naturally curly hair and I have recently learned to embrace it; my curls felt loved in Eric's skilled hands! He walked me through each of the steps he was taking to wash, cut, and style my hair. Thanks to his tutelage, I feel confident that I can recreate my "good hair day" on my own!

eric gave me the best haircut of my life!

I had my first hair experience with Eric in 2005 and I'm still enjoying his expertise with hair in 2022!! He is funny, personable and very knowledgeable. I look forward to my time with Eric because I know my hair will be healthy and look amazing and I'll have fun in the process. My curls have never looked better and I really appreciate how Eric gives me hair knowledge to maintain my curls between visits. I refer all my friends and you should do the same.

Eric is a master of his craft.

I have course, wavy hair and terrifically negligent with it. Tired of it never looking good down, I decided to seek a curly-hair expert stylist. Eric is incredible. Truly. He educated me with patience and thoroughness and explained everything every step of the way. For the first time I feel confident I can care for my temperamental hair and inspired to be kinder to my tresses. An amazing first cut and a plan for the future. If you're struggling with frizz, curls, or waves, I couldn't recommend him more!

Never has my hair had such care and attention

He makes you feel comfortable and I received literally the best haircut I've ever had in my life. I am so happy with it! Not to mention he teaches you everything you need to know so that you can take care of and style your hair at home. I'm so happy with it even a couple weeks later :)



For 20 years, I have searched for an expert in cutting, styling and caring for my curls. Finding Eric was a true gift. I so appreciate the science and practical application for hare care and could not be more grateful to be advised on products and methods to keep my hair healthy and beautiful. It's a true challenge- that for the first time, I feel that I have an effective strategy. I recommend the Eric Kelley Salon without reservation and I will return again and again!

Finding Eric was a true gift.
