A transplant from the Midwest, Emily fell in love with Asheville the moment she drove into the mountains. Growing up with a mother in the hair industry, Emily developed a love for transformation at an early age. She has been working behind the chair professionally since 2008 and has a passion for staying on top of the latest trends and furthering her education. Her focus behind the chair is primarily in dimensional color, textured cuts, as well as wedding hair and make up. 

Emily founded Heir in 2018.
