Laura Gant Eslick
Owner | Platinum Stylist
Laura graduated the Cosmetology program at Isothermal in 1998, and has been helping beautify the men and women of the Carolinas ever since! In 2001 she move to Charleston, SC and worked at Chovine Salon on East Bay Street in downtown Charleston. While working there, she learned from some great stylists, all while developing her own artistic niche. In 2005, after getting married, she and her husband, Donald, moved to Charlotte. There, she continued her career at Halo Salon in Lake Norman. In 2008, they decided to move back to her hometown of Shelby. Laura worked in Uptown Shelby for several years building her clientele and in 2011, Halcyon Salon was born. Laura’s vision for Halcyon is for it to be a place that is upscale without being intimidating. Where, “everyone is welcome and you leave feeling like the best version of you.”
Ed Comes to us from Pennsylvania. He has been a licensed Cosmetologist for 21 years, and loves doing everything from the latest color techniques, to mens cutting, to perms. We are honored to have him as part of the Halcyon family. Come experience this amazing stylist’s abilities!
