I am committed to my salon guests. With 15 years of experience, I know I have the skill set  to give your hair what it wants and also what it needs. My main focus with every client is their time, lifestyle, and budget, but above all is the health and integrity of the hair itself. My salon gives you the comfort relaxation and privacy that most guests crave, and there is not an audience in the room watching you with color on your hair.


I pride myself at being a master colorist. Whether you are looking for sunlights, ombre, balayage hair painting, natural color change or the perfect cut in the Northwest area of Tampa Bay ( including Oldsmar, Palm Harbor, Trinity, Dunedin, Clearwater, Safety Harbor, and Odessa) Then stop by my loft or make your appointment online for the best customer service in the area

I just happened to be walking through Salon Loft one day profiling unknown stylists for an appointment on a whim. You never know what your gonna get when you take a chance with a new stylist. I asked Ernest if he was busy and he was warm and inviting. His friendly nature and clean loft made me feel invited. I have a short graduated bob and its not an easy cut. I left two Aveda stylists because they just lacked the vision of this cut. I get so many compliments! He is a sweet heart and has a strong value for professionalism and sanitation.

Got my first haircut from Ernest yesterday. Best haircut I have had in quite some time. He took the time to listen and discuss what I was looking for. Today I washed and styled my hair myself (which is always the challenge after a cut) and I was able to get it to look like he did. I will return....Thanks

Ernest is a very talented individual. He can look at somebody's hair, mix up a formula designed just for them, and make you look fabulous. Thanks Ernest

Had first appointment with Ernest today. I have lived here almost 5 years and I am going to say itlike it is: all my opinion. I have gone to 3 of the HIGH end salons where the pricing scale depends on the stylist level etc. (Paul Mitchel and Aveda) and about 4 other local owner operated nice salons. Ernest is the best by far! Very comfortable with new client. I found him by searching and stalking for colorist stylist who can texture also. Forget cloud 9 I am on cloud 20!!!! This Ole gal of 45 wanted to feel young but not look like I was trying to be young...lol. He did it! Suggested stick with base color with highlight and lowlights. ... caramelization. Got compliments when I was in Green Market cafe right next door not even 10 minutes later. Love my hair..... psstttt.... Ernest thank you & seriously you are STUCK with me. Xo Jodi.

Being new to the region, I was looking for a fresh look...found Ernest through a co-worker and am beyond pleased. Not only is Ernest a skilled stylist but, he is also a great teacher as he explains the color tones and maintenance/upkeep needed before the next visit! EASIEST wash and go cut I have ever had. THANK YOU ERNEST! Zulma B-P

I have been trying for a few years to find the right hairstylist for me, and I was fortunate to find Ernest. I LOVE my haircut and highlights; the warm tones are so flattering with my skin tone. He was very attentive and managed to give me even more than I had asked for. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I have been getting my hair done by Ernest for about 3 years now, and I am always amazed by what he does to my hair. I always come in with some incoherent idea of what my hair to look like, and he some how makes me vision reality with very little direction. It's a one in a million thing to find a hairdresser that gets you and your hair, and whom you can trust completely. Ernest is a true artist! -Alyssa N.

I have been going to Ernest for my hair since we moved here over 3 years ago. I love him!! He always does a excellent job regardless if it is a cut, color, perm or just a up do. He has a great personality and a joy to talk with while he is working his magic with my hair!
