Emily Hamilton is inspired by the people she loves most. Her family. The Charlotte native grew up with three brothers, married a friend from church, and now has two young daughters. And although they all played a role in her career, it’s Emily’s daughters, Courtlyn and Chandler, who have shaped the person she is, and the stylist she has become.
“They make me a better person, a healthier person, a more attentive person,” she says.
Being attentive has impressed Emily’s clients. By listening to what clients want, she is able to cater to individuals, and base her cuts on feel. Emily believes she can be creative because she hears what the people in her chair are saying to her. She gets it!
“I get to feel proud of my work and make others feel good about themselves,” she said.
You could say Emily’s career began in the front of the salon. While going to business school, she worked as a receptionist. When her father died of cancer at the end of 2010, Emily decided it was time to follow her heart. She changed careers, and enrolled in beauty school.
“MY dad would have probably thought I was crazy,” she laughs. But after years of cutting and styling, my entire family realizes this was the right career for me, my passion!”
Emily loves ARROJO because the products are constantly improving. Her go-to product is ARROJO Defrizz Serum. She uses it on all types of hair because it makes the hair softer and easier to style, without weighing it down.
Thinking about that next style or cut? Then make an appointment with Emily at Fresh Salon, and be prepared to talk about what you want. Remember, great results come from a stylist who listens!
