Growing up, Architexture Salon owner Erika Harding wanted to be either an architect, an opera singer, or a hairdresser. Fortunately for her the style conscious men and women of Ventura, she settled on the latter career, but she didn't stop there. She added "Educator" and "Make-Up Artist" to her stylish resume, building a skill set that led her to do hair and makeup for runway fashion shows, photo shoots, and independent films, as well as for touring entertainers such as Mandy Moore and the band Social Distortion.
But nowhere does Erika's expertise shine more than in her own salon, where the atmosphere is heavily influenced by her other childhood dreams. A reproduction Frank Lloyd Wright drawing nods to her lifelong love of timeless design, and shares wall space with paintings and photographs from local artists. And, of course, guests to the salon can always expect to hear a carefully curated selection of music, which might include anything from Erika's favorite Zydeco band, to local artists, to recordings by her own all-girl country group, LilyWater.
