Meet The Goats

Sheena Ernest


Being in the beauty industry for well over a decade has opened my eyes to the way people see themselves. I think that now more than ever we need to empower and elevate one another.

I want everyone to see that they all have something beautiful to offer. There is so much power behind our individuality. Our uniqueness allows us to stay true to ourselves and there is nothing more gratifying.

Simple is beautiful.

Brian Rand


Master Hairstylist

I have always felt the most joy when I am doing something creative. Being in the hair industry for two decades has allowed me to channel my creative drive and develop my own unique and intuitive style of cutting and styling. My past experience as a salon owner in Boston has allowed me to cultivate an environment where clients feel like they aren’t just a number in my chair, but instead know they are in a safe place where they are truly being heard, and the foundation of a real relationship is being built.

Wake, shake, and go! hair is what I strive to give each of my clients. I love to encourage each person who sits in my chair to embrace the natural texture of their hair.

Come get happy with us.
