Meet the Halcyon Salon Family

Laura Gant Eslick – Owner & Platinum Stylist


Laura graduated the Cosmetology program at Isothermal in 1998, and has been helping beautify the men and women of the Carolinas ever since! In 2001 she move to Charleston, SC and worked at Chovine Salon on East Bay Street in downtown Charleston. While working there, she learned from some great stylists, all while developing her own artistic niche. In 2005, after getting married, she and her husband, Donald, moved to Charlotte. There, she continued her career at Halo Salon in Lake Norman. In 2008, they decided to move back to her hometown of Shelby. Laura worked in Uptown Shelby for several years building her clientele and in 2011, Halcyon Salon was born. Laura’s vision for Halcyon is for it to be a place that is upscale without being intimidating. Where, “everyone is welcome and you leave feeling like the best version of you.”
