With over a decade of experience, hair is Edward's art and San Francisco is where it all began. Edward rigorously trained and became a stylist in a Japanese style salon, in the SoMa. There his creativity was sculpted into skill. Needing to fuel his love for fashion and editorial, Edward made the leap to New York City and was mentored by Sally Hershberger on photo-shoots and behind the scenes, including NYFW.  With a new outlook and appreciation for his craft, he returned to the West Coast. The diversity of the city has allowed Edward to become a seasoned stylist on all hair textures and types – both men and women. He takes pride in his  precise and meticulous eye and the ability to show someone a better version of themselves. Having his clients leave with a dose of confidence and self-love is the ultimate goal. Edward specializes in haircuts, contemporary blowouts & up styling, Brazilian blowouts, and extensions.
