Erica Ortega is the Hair Ninja, boasting both flawless technique and fearless imagination when it comes to cutting, coloring, and styling hair. She'll spend hours delicately weaving strands of hair into elaborate updos or giving locks the perfect amount of curl and bounce. Her main specialty is in color treatments, where she imbues hair with stunning shades of purple, pink, green, and red. One of her favorite tricks is to recreate a full ombre look using a bright ruby color instead of traditional highlights. She also brings her artistic talents to nail art and make-up, and crafts looks ranging from natural to Hollywood-quality monster make-up for Halloween costumes.
