Our Stylists

Cathy Collins

Hi my name is Cathy Collins.

I grew up in a small town in N.E. Ore.  Called Enterprise, (near the beautiful Wallowa Lake) growing up I spent a lot of my time in my mother’s salon.  At five yrs. old I was doing combs & brushes in the shampoo bowl, later cleaning, and always towels.  As I got older my mother hired me to do the hairpiece for their clients.  That was a lot of fun! After I graduated high school I followed my mother’s footsteps and attended the same beauty college she had went to 15 years prior, (Phagan’s College of Beauty in Portland, Ore.) Luckily some of the instructor’s that my mother had were still there!  They took me under their wing and taught me well.

I graduated with the highest grades in the state of Ore. On Nov. 20 1975, 100% in practical and 96% in written.  I COULDN’T BELIEVE IT!!! Then I went to work with my mom for about 7 years, before her health got bad and wouldn’t allow her to work.  I then took over the business for 18 years or so.  In 2001 we needed to move to Boise for my husband’s job.  My oldest daughter had finished beauty school so she could take over Grandma’s shop.  I started at Boise Hair Company in July 2001, been there for 14 years now.  I specialize in backcombing, blow dry’s, roller sets, and especially perms.  I love my senior citizens- they have become family to me.  After 39 years of doing hair I still love it.  Hope to see you soon!

Hello my name is Erica Hinsz.

Hair Stylist since 2015 – Oliver Finley Academy Graduate

I love crafting customized cuts and colors to compliment client’s unique features. Creating an effortless look, that works best with my client’s lifestyle and specific hair color and type is essential to me. Simple natural looks are my favorite, but I also like incorporating fashion colors now and again.

I’m a Boise native, however I recently lived in Jackson, Wyoming. I enjoy exploring unfamiliar places and being outdoors.

The Paul Mitchell Platinum Blonde spray is my go to product, because it’s an all-in-one, multitasking product that protects the hair from heat, evens porosity, conditions, detangles and adds shine. Not to mention Paul Mitchell is a cruelty free company, that I can stand behind since I myself am an animal lover.

I currently have a playful black chubby kitty cat named Tally; she’ll be 5 this April, and yes we are having a party!

When I’m not behind the chair I like to spend my time watching live music, relaxing, biking or enjoying the company of my friends and family.
