Erin O'Brien Acosta
Hair Stylist

Experience: I've been a hair stylist from New York to Florida since 1986 and have been at Mina's Studio since 2012.

Training/Certification: Board Certified Hair Colorist. Vidal Sassoon, Martin Parsons, Jingles, Pivot Point, Nexxus and KMS. Educator for KMS and Senscience and Educator Training for Famesi, Goldwell and Schwartzkopf.

Creative Approach: My goal is to make each client feel special. Every person will receive a thorough consultation and a personalized look to suit their personal style. Everyones facial shape, head shape, hair texture and growth patterns are unique, therefore my approach is very individualized. I have kept up with the latest trends and products to improve/maintain the integrity of my clients hair.

Reviews: "Erin is an amazing hair dresser. And a very honest person. I totally trust and respect her. She will not tell you to do something just to make money. She is Real! I am so happy a friend of mine liked her so much that she referred Erin to me. She is the best and most caring, intelligent hairdresser I have had in my life. And I'm 51 years old." JESSICA M

"Erin is th BEST!!" BILLIE * G

"Erin was her usual creative, enthusiastic self. She did a fabulous haircut for me. I was thrilled. I was not quite sure of what I wanted, except I badly needed to have less hair. Erin showed me pictures and between us we decided on a plan of action. Erin included me in the decision making right up to the end. She is such a gem." JENNIFER * A

"Erin Acosta has been my color specialist for going on two years and she's always a delight. She makes hair into an art." by Anna K., DemandForce

"My hairdresser Erin was excellent, she discussed very thoroughly with me about what color requirements she thought I would need. She was very pleasant and informative throughout the whole procedure. The end results more than met my expectations, I was extremely pleased." by Jennifer A.

"Amazing. Erin highlighted my hair yesterday and it is exactly what I wanted. She does a great job listening and making suggestions. Look no more, she is the one!" by C. Lyon

"After Erin highlighted and cut my hair today, I met my husband for dinner. I got the best reaction I've ever gotten to a haircut, a broad smile and a big WOW. I just love the way it looks. This is the prettiest highlighting job I've ever gotten. Erin is top notch, and a joy to talk with about hair and everything else." by D. Ricketts

Hobbies: I love the outdoors, hiking, biking, running, skating, camping and scuba diving. I also love the arts: museums and music.
