As an Oakland native, working mom of two beautiful daughters, and salon and barber salon owner, Eryn Harrison understands the need to remove oneself occasionally from the hectic pace of everyday life. Her goal is to work with each client to provide a service that is tailored to the needs, desires, and lifestyle of the individual. She does this by combining more than twenty years of experience in cutting and coloring hair with her extensive knowledge of the latest innovations in cutting techniques, color technology, and product development. Eryn synthesizes her experience and knowledge with unparalleled customer service to provide the ultimate “Calm” experience for her clients. To under promise and over deliver is the motto. Leading Calm, A Salon’s 52 week training program has provided many unexpected benefits. “The passion I have always had for hair, continues to be fueled by the desire to change the cosmetology industry. I truly love teaching behind the chair. Many of my clients have supported me through out the years and have helped me to become the woman/mom/mentor/stylist/leader/artist/business I am today”.
After opening Calm, A Salon in 2005, I was left wondering… “where are all the men going to get their haircut”? I set out to study barbershops and their secret culture, which I knew very little about. With every opportunity I had, I would sit and observe a new barbershop. With careful thought to my community, I opened Harrison’s… The Gentleman’s Solution in 2016. I have pushed myself out of my comfort zone (women’s hair) and embraced the world of barbering. It turns out there is an entire group of individuals yearning for continued education, aka Barbers and men of all ages. Taking the business sense I have gained from Summit Salon Systems, and the partnership with Salon Centric and L’Oreal Profesinelle, along with Baxter of California, barbering has become my latest quest to make a difference in the salon industry.
