ELGIN CHARLES, touted by many as the “Emperor of Hair”, is a visionary impresario whose upscale beauty salon in the heart of Beverly Hills, has become a welcomed mainstay amongst the Cartiers & Pradas of the glitzy Rodeo Dr. shopping district.
A native of San Antonio, TX, Elgin walked away from a highly successful career in finance at Smith Barney and a keen interest in theology…to follow his passion — hair! Now at the top of the hair industry heap in Los Angeles, Elgin won’t stop until his brand garners global recognition. And with salon locations and an expanded product line in the works, it won’t be long before Elgin Charles stands as the undisputed king of the multi-billion dollar hair industry. And if being on the cusp of worldwide acclaim doesn’t keep Elgin busy enough, he and ex-wife, television icon Jackée Harry, are hard at work, raising their teenage son Frank; an aspiring football star at Beverly Hills High School.
