Owner & Stylist
With 30 years behind the chair and 15 as a national artistic educator, Earl is a sought-after instructor who continues to pursue his own continuing education by learning new trends and techniques from stylists around the world.
Relocating with his wife, Kelly from the Monterey/Carmel area of California, together they opened Natural Fusion Hair Studio in 2007. Earl’s passion to accumulate cosmetology knowledge makes him an ideal mentor to his stylists because he can “share it in a way that people can understand and learn from it”, enabling him to mentor and train his staff so they excel.
Earl’s favorite pick-me-up is to get out in nature, especially with his beloved dogs, and he hopes to find more time for his woodworking hobby – and maybe someday – welding! On a desert island, he would definitely want a hair brush to keep the tangles out of his “long luxurious hair”. His favorite cereal is Frosted Flakes, and in addition to his and Kelly’s strong commitment to the environmentally-friendly salon practices, he plans to add a worm bin on to his compost bin (eewww!).
