Salon Elle’s mission is to have an A-list team of stylists who believe in perfecting the art of hair, are free to express themselves and grow with no reservations, and for the salon to experience this growth through profits and giving back to those who help build it.
Our wonderful owner, Erin Doumert, is a leading hair artist in the San Diego area, who is a passionate entrepreneur, educator, and award-winning stylist. As a passionate educator, she sets an example and educates her team because of her deep belief that education is crucial for each team member to stay up on latest trends and techniques. She doesn't stop there, but also teaches her clients how to create and maintain their look at home. Clients routinely praise her ability to “finally” create the look and feel they had been seeking. One of her strongest talents as a stylist is that she is a master in Great Length Extensions. Even with her loyal following and success at such a young age, Erin remains approachable, warm, and humble.
Erin placed 3rd in the Scottsdale Hair Wars- 2011, received 1st place in the Toni & Guy Fusion (Beauty School Hair Wars); Master Stylist and Salon Educator, 2006; had works published in SoScottsdale and Keel Magazines; and placed 11th on a popular reality hair show competition.
Erin also consistently supports events that involve hair styling for philanthropic causes, including cut-a-thons to help children with cancer and contributing to The Trade Foundation and Wigs For Kids. Her salon also supports Earth Month, donating a portion of its proceeds each April. A hiker, yoga devotee, international traveler, and runner, Erin has completed two half-marathons. She lives in San Diego with her cat, William.
