Testimonials

“In 2002, I broke my wrist and wasn’t able to wash or style my hair with one hand, so I booked a weekly appointment at a local salon, met Erica and never let anyone else touch my hair again! Twelve years later I am still loyal. Why would I switch?  Erica gives great cuts, is a fantastic colorist. A few years ago she won an award for colorist of the year. She hides my stubborn greys, blow dries my hair to perfection and I feel beautiful when I walk out of there.”

“Erica has been my hairdresser for several years, probably nearly ten.  A friend referred me to Erica because of her hair coloring expertise.  Somehow she manages to cover all the grey, and maintain a natural vibrant color.  Highlights add some sparkle.  I especially appreciate Erica keeping track of my scheduling needs via email. The atmosphere in the shop is relaxed, a welcoming place. I’m extemely pleased!”

“When I moved back to MD a few years ago, I tried several hair stylist. Erica was referred to me by a friend and I never looked back. She listens and wants to do exactly what I want, while making suggestions when asked. The shop itself has a relaxed but professional atmosphere… I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else because I will always be happy with the results”.

“I have had the pleasure of Erica doing my hair for the past three years.  Due to moving to a new retirement location, I needed an expert for coloring and shaping my very fine hair.  After asking a new friend with a lovely cut and color where she went, I learned about Erica at Angel’s Shop in Havre de Grace, MD.  Erica is a coloring expert who is adept at creating fantastic hairstyles for any type of hair.  She helps my fine hair look full bodied and complimentary to my face.”

“I needed a trim on my short curly hair in a hurry to make a meeting with a client and Erica was available to both trim and color my hair.  As someone new, not only did she surprise me with a new style but my color was perfect.  Like finding a winning lottery ticket.  I am delighted with her.”

“Ricki has been my hair stylist for over 12 years.  She is up to date on the latest styles and color.  She is the only person I trust with my hair.  She always takes the time to listen and gives me exactly what I am looking for.  She is a professional at color and gives a fantastic hair cut.  Ricki is a very warm and friendly person and has always made me feel comfortable in her chair.  My son is twenty-one and my daughter is eighteen and both love how Ricki cuts their hair.  They will not go to anyone else. Thank you Ricki for your many years of great service.  You are the best!”

“Erica has been styling my hair for at least 8 years and I love the way she listens to me. I can describe what I want and she does it the way I pictured it. Or if it’s a bad idea she isn’t shy about telling me why it may not be a good look for my type of hair or shape of my face. Some seasons we work toward that perfect look; one month low lighting a shade that will pick up a new color better for the next month. Erica knows hair. She educates me about growth spurts, products and good diets for healthy hair.  Staying  informed is important to Erica because she’s a professional in her field.”

I have referred many people to Erica its so easy because I am always getting compliments on my hair!”

Erica has been my hair stylist since 2009 and I couldn’t imagine to going to anyone else. I have been through many stylist looking for someone who can cut long hair. She is the first stylist I have ever had who actually knows how to cut long hair so it stays healthy and long. Erica is the master of hair color who gives execellent and honest advice on what will look best on you. She did my hair for my wedding and it was amazing. Months before my wedding we started looking at photos and listened to what I was looking for and what I liked and didn’t like. Then she created a look and style that was elegant, lovely and more that I have ever imagined. I always get compliments on the color and cut of my hair and would recommend her to anyone.

My name is Ray and I am a nurse living and working in Howard County Maryland. I have been seeing Ricki since I was fourteen (I am now 28) and have followed her wherever she has gone because she is that wonderful.

I have naturally super fine, stick straight hair that, when not colored, is an indeterminate shade of ashy brown/blond. Ricki has an incredible knack for color and during my teens my hair had been everything from platinum blond, to jet black, to having hot pink hi-lights. My color for a long time now has been in shades of red. If anyone reading this is familiar with the difficulty of red coloring then you will understand when I say that Ricki is a genius with it and that that alone is a reason to see her. I am always complimented on my color and asked where I get my hair done.

Ricki knows her clients. She knows their hair, their preferences. I can always request a specific color or cut, but often I will let Ricki determine what she would like to do with the color on any given visit because I know that I can trust her to know what I will like. I have talked to so many people who are disappointed after seeing their stylist because the color wasn’t right or the cut was unflattering–that is why I drive up to Havre de Grace every 6 weeks. My color and my cut are always amazing.

Her technical skills aside, Ricki is also an incredible person–I look forward to seeing her and I always leave feeling better than when I got there (hair therapy).

My name is Tammy Rapposelli and I have been a client of Erica Bona’s for about 10 years. I always look forward to my hair appointments, it is so relaxing and a lot of fun. I am always very pleased with how my hair looks. Ricki does a fantastic job with coloring my hair. I love it when she brings out the book and we pick new colors to use for highlights or lowlights. Ricki knows how to listen to what I want for my hair but also how to help explain to me what my hair needs. The atmosphere of the shop is comfortable for me. I like seeing Betty. I’ve known her for years too.
