About the Owners
Owners Adrian and Stephanie channel their passion for creativity into their salon. Adrian grew up in and around the business spending time with his mom in her salon. After spending some time in the military he had the opportunity to join the business. He jumped in because he saw the opportunity to use his business and HR skills while also channeling his creative side. He’s passionate about photography, music and other creative endeavors, which transfers well to the salon environment.
Stephanie began her Eclips journey as a front desk team leader, where she realized after a few short weeks that she had found her calling. Two years later, she earned her license and became a stylist. She is passionate about growing young stylists to give others the same opportunity to hone their talents in the industry.

She’s a strong woman on the inside and out, and I try to be as well. There was another girl whose look really spoke to me years ago. I can’t tell you her name now, but I can tell you where she got her amazing haircut — Eclips! I loved her look so much, I knew I had to work at this salon. That was 8.5 years ago, and I’m still happily going strong in my home away from home. These girls have become my family — supportive, fun and caring. I am certified to do Brazilian Blowouts and Keratin Hair Straightening and am a certified Redken and Pureology stylist.

Like many of my coworkers, I love how giving a client a new hairstyle or color can boost their mood and confidence.

I’m certified in Great Lengths and the Balayage technique, and I get to use my skills every day. At Eclips, we all get along both at work and outside of work. Hanging out together makes us an even more cohesive team, and I think that shows in our interactions with clients.

I love that she doesn’t follow your typical style rules and stands up for what she believes in.
