About Cross & Co.
Hello! I am the owner and operator of Cross & Co. Salon.
I specialize in curly cuts and styling through the lense of overall healthier hair. I've been in the beauty/hair business since 2009 and in 2018 I made the decision to officially launch Cross & Co. Salon.
I've made a strong connection with my fellow curly community and have become a huge advocate for owning our curls. I have fallen in love with helping others care and maintain their curly hair. I provide services for clients behind the chair, as well as virtual one on one appointments, I sell retail products for pick up or shipping, I teach continuing education classes for salon professionals, and I've recently been recruited as an official brand educator for the popular hair care line, Innersense Organic Beauty.
I'm born and raised Dallas, TX for the most part and my husband Gabriel is from Memphis, TN. We have been together for almost 12 years now. It was acutally my husband that encouraged me to pursue cosmetology school! He has graduated from University of Texas at Dallas with his BS in Finance and UT Austin (hook 'em!) for his MBA. He now works at Apple in the Operations Deptartment. We are each other's biggest cheerleader, he is working towards pursuing his CPA then PhD while I'm working on building my business to the next level! Some of our hobbies include educational podcasts/documentaries and coffee/whiskey tastings. It's just us in this crazy life but I'm slowly weaning him into agreeing on us getting our first pet, a mini Aussie...preferably a Siberian cat too. *fingers crossed*
I'm looking forward to meeting yall and doing my part to provide value to your visit!!

Hello, I am the receptionist for Cross & Co Salon!
I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I'm a mother of 2 young boys who are my world! Most of my free time is spent with them playing, going to parks, or just being with each other. Some of my other hobbies/interests include drawing, playing video games, YouTube, and I recently started playing with a game developing software. Also, I plan on attending cosmetology school in the near future. Oh and fun fact, Erica is also my big sister. I am looking to learn all that I can in the salon to be able to help everyone out in the best way possible. Overall I'm a simple kind of girl that likes making people laugh and living life to the fullest!
I'm excited to meet everybody!

Hiii! I’m Desiree. You can even call me Desi! I’m a mom of one little boy and lots of animals. I’m also one of many curly girls that were fortunate enough to experience the trauma of many bad haircuts. Embracing your curls is hard when you don’t have the basics down, so I’m excited to help!
I’ve had a background in hair for about 5 years now, and am a Toni&Guy graduate. I now get to pick Erica’s brain when it comes to everything curly, and I couldn’t have asked for a better team to join.
I can’t wait to meet you and see those beautiful curls you have! You'll hear it over and over again.

Hey!! I’m Vyctoria, you can call me Tori! I was born and raised in Texas. I’m a mom of one little fur baby. I’ve always had a passion for doing hair. A lot of people in my life were blessed with curly hair. My goal is to help you get those curls maintained and to help you be able to maintain them at home too!
I’ve been doing hair for 4 years now, I graduated from cosmetology school through my high school. Now I get to further my education from Erica, which I’m so excited about!
I’m looking forward to meeting you, and seeing what curls we have to work with!

Brand Core Values
To Empathize. To Educate. To Encourage.
To Empathize: We want to hear your hair-story! Tell us all about yourself and how your hair effects your look. What is your hobby/lifestyle/work? What is a typical morning look like for you? What are your hair goals? What are your struggles? What do you love about your hair? What are your pros and cons in regards to your experiences in salons? We want to know it all! As much as you are comfortable sharing of course, but knowing your hopes and fears allows me to avoid things you may dislike and help out the best we can.
To Educate: We are passionate in helping clients love their hair by showng them step by step how to style their curls at home. Its all fine and dandy when one gets their hair done by a professional but then what about after?? As curly clients ourselves, our goal is to help all of our clients to know how to care for their curls. We invite clients to ask as many questions as they'd like. We are here to HELP!
To Encourage: We take JOY in being a part of our client's hair journey! We love watching the hair transform for the better before our eyes. With some clients, that happens right away and then there's others that require a bit more time but the end result is so gratifying when our clients send us photos or messages how we have helped them love their curls again. We want to encourage everyone to love their waves/curls! We are THANKFUL that with each client we are given the opportunity to assist in our own little way.
To those who have visted us, thank you for trusting us with your hair.
To those who plan to, thank you for considering us.
