Emily

Born & raised in Philadelphia, Em Bres started her career in hair in 2010. Em has worked at a handful of salons in the city, mentoring under multiple stylists during the course of her apprenticeship. Em is a social butterfly and has a way to making people feel comfortable. Over the years, she has built a clientele base through word-of-mouth, creating somewhat of a low-key hair club culture that feels more like a book of friends rather then “clients.” While Em is sought out for both color correction and “party color” hair work, she also loves using her straight blade razor to create effortless textured cuts and loves doing tape in hair extensions for her babe’s who desire longer, fuller hair.
