I opened Salon Elite in 2001 because I wanted to create a place where stylists could be mentored in a positive atmosphere and enjoy coming to work every day.  I am passionate about finding the right solutions for clients suffering different types of hair loss. I love the feeling of helping people feel good about themselves.


Erika Reese
Master Stylist

After two other jobs, I began my career at Salon Elite over 20 years ago.  My favorite part of being a stylist is making people feel good about themselves.  Since I have two very active girls, Payten and Kendyl, I have very little free time!  My favorite vacation spot is Charleston, SC.


With over 30 years experience behind the chair, my home is Salon Elite.  I have always been dedicated to learning and skill building and consider myself a perpetual student.  People are my passion and I value the relationships I have built over the years.  My other interests include nutrition, fitness and whole body health


I started my career over 10 years ago at Salon Elite.  My favorite part of my job is chatting with my clients and building relationships with them.  When I am not behind the chair you will find me either road-tripping to Key West, lying on the beach in Key West, or dreaming of being in Key West! 


I became a stylist because I have always loved all things hair!  I love seeing the client's face light up when I am finished.  I have been a stylist for over 14 years, 7 of those here at Salon Elite.  I love doing major transformations and creating lived in color.  At home, I love spending time with my two toddlers and my husband, but I might also be addicted to Burn Boot Camp!


I have been a stylist for over 10 years and I love making my clients feel pretty!  When they turn around in the chair and smile, I am rewarded. My favorite services are blonding and balayage.  Bring me those blonde bombshells!  When I am not making clients pretty, I spend time with my family at the softball field or on the beach.  Come let me make you feel pretty!   


An Aveda stylist for 20 years, I came to Salon Elite because I loved the atmosphere and stylists.  I am originally from Chile and enjoy going there to visit as often as I can.  My favorite part of my job is  reds!!  Outside of the salon, I enjoy cooking, exercising and my church.


I believe that your hairstyle is a form of self expression.  I love helping my clients find the style that helps them express their true selves.  If it is blonde or blue or any hue, color is my favorite skill to master.  When I am not behind the chair, you will find me baking, crocheting, or playing mancala with my husband and cats.


I was one of Sherry's original apprentices and flew back to the nest after years of being away from the craft.  My favorite thing about being a stylist is the time I spend with clients building our relationships,  When I am not at the salon, you will find me hunting, watching baseball, and racing with my boys and husband.


I joined Salon Elite as an apprentice because I love making people feel good about themselves.  My favorite services are all things extra: extensions, make-up, bridal up-do's and long hair.  In my free time I love to hang out with friends, snuggle my doggo and watch Reality TV...oh and dance!  Always dance!


Sierra Benner

After spending a few years behind the scenes at Salon Elite, I am stepping up to the chair to become a stylist.  I love working with my hands to create something beautiful.  I love practicing and perfecting the ideal blowout.  Outside of the salon, I love to go to the racetrack and go fishing and the beach with my friends and family.

Ashlyn Sayers

As the newest apprentice at Salon Elite, I wanted to have a career where I could help people feel confident and beautiful while working alongside other driven and creative individuals.  I am excited to learn all the ways I can make everyone feel beautiful!  I also love spending time with friends, family and my dogs.


Kristi Hansin
Master Esthetician

I started at Salon Elite as a receptionist and quickly fell in love with the beauty business.  I got my aesthetics license and have been doing that for more than 20 years.  My favorite part is all the friendships I have made over the years.  When I am not at the salon, you can find me on the boat, on the beach, or at a concert.  My other passion is Young Living Essential Oils.


I have always had a passion for skin care and makeup.  I am excited to have the opportunity to learn my craft from such a strong and supportive mentor in Kristi. My favorite part is helping women conquer their skin issues and making them glow! I love trying out new recipes and all thing trivia - games, puzzles, etc!
