Manifesting a future built on experience

After graduating from Ohio University and dedicating a year of service to AmeriCorps, Modest Peacock’s owner, Erin Stevens, won a Natural Talent Scholarship to Aveda Fredric’s Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 2005, Erin graduated from the Institute, worked at an AVEDA Lifestyle Salon in Charlotte, North Carolina and then became an educator and hair cutting coach for AVEDA Fredric’s Institute (2006-2010). Erin went back behind the chair in her hometown of Athens, Ohio for four years and then her husband’s hometown of Marietta, Ohio for three.

The goal in opening Modest Peacock in Marietta, Ohio, is to create a space where serious hair professionals can have a career path and guests have trust in the skills of their hair stylist- all in a team atmosphere.

We have in-house education for our stylists at least once a month and are completing a 32-week advanced education course by Vidal Sassoon's former London creative director, Sally Rogerson.

Focusing on green practices and continuing education ensures the salon is always evolving and bringing customers an experience they can feel good about.
