owner / educator/ coach / extension artist

I'm Erin, owner of Obsidian Hair Studio. I specialize in:​

  • Hair Extensions for Fine Hair

  • Efficient Luxury Hair Color


I love creating beautiful hair that works in your lifestyle, and helping you solve your hair and scalp problems. Extensions should fit into your life, not the other way around!

I started doing hair in 2015 and I opened the salon in 2021. At home I have my partner & husband - Van, our tiny human Westley, and one silly pit bull named Hazel. 

After getting my degree in Sociology from Chico State in 2006, I tried two times at graduate school that led me to an unfulfilling corporate management career. In 2013, I decided not only to marry my best friend but start hair school at night. It wasn't easy but damn has it been worth it!

I feel fortunate to live, work, and raise my little in such a wonderful community and am excited to shake up the salon world with our slice of hair heaven!
