Hi I'm Samantha Tamayo, the founder and owner of Essri Hair Studio. I'm a Chicago born and raised hair stylist with over six years of styling experience. Opening my own studio has always been a dream of mine and now, my dream has turned into my favorite adventure.


Throughout the years, I have gained hands-on experience mastering numerous cutting styles and received multiple certifications in keratin treatment applications and extension installations. I love building a strong connection with each of my clients and strive to help their personalities shine through their hair.


At Essri Hair Studio, I offer a variety of customized cuts, keratin treatments, and extensions to deliver exceptional one-on-one services for all my clients. As owner, my goal is to deliver specialized styling experiences with the utmost quality.


I work individually with each of my clients to understand their unique needs and design a plan to execute those effortlessly perfect hair days, each and everyday. I truly want your experience at Essri Hair to be both relaxing and inspirational. My goal is to boost my client's confidence and to have them leave the salon feeling like the main character.

Essri Hair Studio embodies the mission of establishing a one-of-a-kind hair destination that serves all clients in an inclusive, collaborative, and personalized environment.

Let’s connect, collaborate, and achieve your hair destiny!
