About Emily Akers

Hey there! My name's Emily Akers. I'm a licensed cosmetologist and certified makeup artist. I graduated from The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School in early 2012 as well as The Academy of Makeup in 2017. I specialize in balayage, color, cuts, makeup, lash tints, eyebrow tinting and men’s styles! I love the idea of getting to know you before just “jumping into your appointment.” Tell me about your lifestyle, your hair or makeup frustrations and your hair/makeup dreams/goals! Give me all of the details. I schedule time to discuss your needs, develop a game plan and build a strong relationship with you, so we are always on the same page. I try my best to give you the 411 on what I’m doing, so that you’re well educated as a guest of mine. The possibilities are endless and can be as simple or daring as you’re comfortable going. EMphasize your current look? I’ve got you. Want to spice it up? Psh, I’m all here for it and your girl! I look forward to our visit and can’t wait to learn more about you!


Today I had an appointment with Emily and what a wonderful experience. I treated myself to the works, color, highlight, toner, glaze, haircut and style. My hair looks fabulous! Book an appointment with Emily. You won't be disappointed.

Emily is fantastic! She is skilled, attentive, and so kind. I'm convinced she is a wizard with scissors. I go in with great expectations and she somehow exceeds them every time. To boot, she keeps a super clean space, which is so important in pandemic times. Seriously, you will not regret it. She's amazing!

I wanted a gorgeous ombre chestnut/copper color that is very hard to achieve and Emily nailed it! She was careful to think through the best way to accomplish what I wanted before getting started. My hair is so shiny, healthy and vibrant! Love the selection of products too. 10/10 recommend!

Emily is the only one that can cut my son’s hair without him having a complete meltdown. She is patient and kind and provides entertainment. The whole family goes to her. We love her.
