Few people have impressed us as deeply as Edwin within the first 30 seconds of meeting. There is an energy and confidence about him that immediately speaks of his character. You just get that gut feeling that this is a person who is honest, kind, intelligent and talented. After receiving his Bachelor’s degree at Columbia College with a focus on Fashion and Graphic Design, Edwin quickly channeled his eye for beauty and passion for design to hair. So not only will you have beautiful hair after your visit with Edwin, you may also come out with a few fashion tips, too. After graduating from Pivot Point International Academy, Edwin joined our 2008 Apprentice Program and spent the next 10 months perfecting his skills, learning the true ins-and-outs of our crazy industry and soaking up every bit of wisdom offered up by our Director of Education, Amy. Since then, Edwin’s career has soared. Not only is he a highly sought-after stylist in the salon (it’s not often you’ll find a last-minute appointment with Edwin still available), Edwin has already made a name for himself in Chicago, New York, LA and Dallas. He works with 10MGMT Modeling Agency here in Chicago and with the iconic Wilhemina agency in New York. Edwin worked his first Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week with Kérastase in September of 2014, styling the runway for Thakoon and Zac Posen. Most recently, as if his resume wasn’t already impressive enough, Edwin accepted a position with Kérastase on their advanced T.E.C.H. Team and works as one of only 5 educators for the entire Midwest. In case you are wondering…no, it is not common to see such an accomplished stylist with less than 10 years in the industry. But, some talent just can’t be tamed or held to “normal” standards. One day we will all be able to say, “We knew him when…” Until then, your experience with Edwin will introduce you to the character we were so impressed with and the attention to detailed perfection that we have learned to expect from every haircut and color he creates.
Edwin’s men’s haircuts are $57 and women’s are $87, colors start at $81 and highlights from $130.
