Stylist & Educator
I became a hair stylist because I wanted to express myself creatively, and scientifically. I love the challenge of customizing my guest’s services to meet their goals, while learning about their unique life experiences. Green Grotto Beauty is your personal hub to embrace a holistic lifestyle.
I prioritize the integrity of your hair above all else. I spend countless hours researching product chemistry to ensure that only the best, most nutritive ingredients are used on you. A visit to the salon can be a relaxing oasis from the chaos of your daily life, so that you can return to your family refreshed. Let’s make every moment count.
I was raised an “army brat” on Cape Cod, MA. When I wasn’t with my mom on the base, I was with her at the hair salon. She taught me that hard work includes taking pride in your body and your home. I come from a long line of boss women who believe that your strength is reflected in how well you present yourself to the world.
Confession: my family always thought I would become a marine biologist. My love for nature must have overshadowed the fact that I would cut any hair in sight as a child. Earth conscious practices have been my priority since I recognized the need for it during my cosmetology training, over 10 years ago.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Erica is a very professional and talented person, my experience at Green Grotto was wonderful! A clean and quiet environment without chemical smell, thanks to your help my hair now feels and looks healthier, cannot wait for my next visit!
Wonderful atmosphere with an amazing owner/operator. I only let Erica touch my hair because she is so great at what she does. Also don't be scared to ask her a question she's full of knowledge and if she doesn't know it I'm sure she'd invest the time to get you an answer.”
My first experience with Erica was wonderful. Very talented woman. So comfortable to be around. Got my first henna done by her and it came out awesome. I look forward to coming back for more work in near future. Highly recommended!

My desire to learn more about a variety of topics, lead me to pursue my Bachelor's degree in Anthropology with a minor in Middle East Studies from Bridgewater State University.
