The Team

Diana

Master Artist/ Owner

Hi there, Im Diana. One of the co-owners of Desert Roots. Albuquerque is my home. I wasn’t born here, but I was raised here since I was 3.

I graduated from from Aveda in 2014, and I assisted for a year, and it will be almost 9 years that I will have been behind the chair.

Since I was a young girl I knew creating beautiful hair and owning a salon was my future. And to be in a place where my dream is now a reality is unreal sometimes. I love what I do. Hair is my art, my passion, my career.

Like to believe that I am a well rounded stylist. I do everything from highlights, balayages, gray blending, natural colors, cuts from long luscious locks to short beautiful pixies. There is still so much that I would like to learn and add to my service menu.

In this field I truly believe learning never stops. So I always strive to be better and become more knowledgable in my craft.

Erin

Signature Artist/ Owner

Hello everyone, my name is Erin and I am one of the Co-owners at Desert Roots Salon. My career started in 2014 when I was hired as an assistant at another salon In Albuquerque. I assisted for about a year before taking on my own clientele. I continued working there for about 7 years before I decided to venture off and open my own salon.

Ive been a stylist for 9 years and love making people have confidence and having them leave my chair feeling good not only about their haircut about themselves.

I take pride in my work and always strive to continue learning this ever changing industry. I enjoy doing all techniques of coloring and cutting but my favorite is doing fashion color, highlights, and grey coverage.

Outside of the salon I love to spending time with my family, cooking for them or watching scary movies.

So come on in, take a seat, relax, let’s chat and lets make your hair dreams come true!
