HISTORY: Emerson Salon's history began at 909 E. Pike St in 2008 under Matt Buchan and Alex Garcia who forged a new path at the time by showing off the salon and its stylists on social media and a blog integrated website. At that time it was a commission based employment hair salon and flourished with many LGBTQIA+ clients and an eclectic mix of artists, musicians and regular professionals. In 2012, it shifted to a booth rental style model where all the stylists ran their own service business from chair to chair. In 2014, D'Arcy and Lancer took over under B.Please LLC and revamped the space and continued to offer chairs for rent to motivated entrepeneurs.
In 2021, D'Arcy took over full ownership of the brand so she could downsize the space to a salon suite 7 blocks away on Capitol Hill. As you can imagine, this afforded her more focus and for clients' peace during their service. After 3 yrs of pandemic protocols- it just seemed more manageable to minimize risk and ease minds.
Now, Lancer has moved on to live in Ireland with his husband. We continue to support gender affirming hair, an lgbtqia+ and anyone who identifies as "other."
