Our Team Members
Elaina grew up in Seattle, and in a little town across the Puget Sound, Poulsbo. But as the Texan saying goes, "We're not from here, but we got here as fast as we could," and she and her husband chose to make Texas their home. She has been doing hair since she was 4 years old. "I did my 1st haircut on myself. Not just a little snip either. I did a complete haircut. It took quite awhile to grow back out." She began her formal education in high school through their Cosmetology program. She finished up in Arizona, where she and Copie lived while he was stationed there in the USMC. She has received additional training through Redken, Paul Mitchell, Tressa, Kenra, Matrix, Pureology, and many other continuing education resources. "We bring in educators to the salon for classes and training, and we attend hair shows and conventions to better ourselves as stylists and to stay current." Elaina's husband, Copie, is an O&M Technician at the Power Plant in Marion. They are the proud parents of 2 sons - both attend the University of Houston. On August 8, 2006, we opened Stylin' Hair Salon. "My goal was to create a peaceful and relaxing environment for the clients and the stylists. I feel very blessed to have my family, and to be able to spend my workdays surrounded by talented and creative women, who are also my friends. My husband teases me that I don't really work. I just go hang out with my friends and play with hair. He's right! I love my family, and I love being a hairstylist." To contact Elaina, call the salon at 210-566-8297 or e-mail at [email protected]
