Ericka J Brown

Founder / CEO / Creative Director 

Ericka is the Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Creative Director of Ericka’s House of Elegance, a unique boutique that offers products and services ranging from hair care to hand crafted jewelry to pet grooming to home spa products. Ericka, a single mother, started as a mobile hair stylist and moonlighted as a manager in the Hospitality industry. This allowed her the flexibility she needed to tend to her family as she would travel to her clients instead of them coming to her in a salon. Her interest for arts and crafts skyrocketed and she started making jewelry. She even taught herself how to crochet and refurbish old furniture. Ericka later decided to incorporate her love of crafting into her growing business. Now, she’s able to do everything she loves and take care of the people most important to her.

Zayna Brown

VP of Operations / Creative Designer

Zayna, Ericka's eldest daughter, is the Vice President of Operations and a Creative Designer at Ericka’s House of Elegance. She works alongside her mother in the Ziva's Hair Boutique as an apprentice braider. Zayna has watched her mom create beautiful styles on clients for years and has developed the same love and appreciation of healthy hair. Zayna is also the owner of Zayna’s Backyard Playground, another entity under the EHE’s roof. Zayna’s Backyard Playground allows her to love on animals with short term boarding, grooming and simple play dates with her furry friends. Zayna has loved animals since she was a young child and generally always had a pet, whether it be a dog, a turtle (or 3), hermit crabs or a rabbit. It’s safe to say that Zayna loves animals more than most humans. Zayna, now a Sophomore in college, is excited to learn even more about how to take care of her furry (and not so furry) friends.
