"D'Arcy knows hair! I am one of those women with thick, wavy, curly, coarse hair sometimes a stylists' nightmare. She is amazing and not only works collaboratively with you on what will work for your life with your hair, but is so knowledgeable about the science of hair as well. Professional, fun, skilled, and on time! All the things you want in a stylist."
- Jen C., client
"...the best haircut I've ever had! I feel like I actually look like I'm in style for once. I don't think my hair has ever been this well layered, healthy, or soft! During my consultation with her, I knew I was going to receive a wonderful haircut because she just seemed to talk about curly hair in a way I don't think I've heard before (she got it)."
- Olivia G., client
"D'Arcy is awesome and has always given me an excellent, quick cut. Even when I go in not knowing exactly what I want, she has a unique way of figuring out exactly what's going to look good on your head."
- David R.., client
"I just got my big-fuzzy-wavy mane of hair cut by D'arcy, and this is the first time in my life that I have left a salon with my hair just diffused dry with a tiny bit of product and felt and looked great. She listened so well and explained exactly what she thought was the best cut to meet my goals."
- Monica D., client
Get To Know D'Arcy
D'Arcy has been a licensed cosmetologist since 2003
and a self-employed entrepreneur since 2012. She believes your hair is an essential component of soul expression and approaches client work with acceptance, patience, and understanding.
D'Arcy is best known as, “The Vocal Cosmetologist,” due to her impactful grassroots & marketing focus as a leader in the Personal Services trade association “Cosmetologists of Washington United.” Her efforts to protect small business/independent contractors in the State Legislature led to Emerson Salon receiving the 2019 “Washington Advance Award from The Association of Washington Business.
In March 2021, D'Arcy became sole owner of Emerson Salon.
D’Arcy’s philosophy of hair includes the belief that form must be in harmony with function and therefore, must be in line with the clients’ needs and wishes. She is a compassionate and understanding stylist whose sole aim is to empower each guest.
She remembers many years growing up wishing a hairstylist would listen to and understand what she wanted out of her wavy, frizzy hair. This is why D’Arcy has strived for over 18 yrs. to combine her technical expertise with her innate artistic touch. Her main priority is the client and knows its NOT “just” hair.
D’Arcy Harrison became a transplant from the Rhode Island area over 20 yrs ago. She has an extensive background in the theatre including a BFA in Acting. For years, D’Arcy toiled in the retail and restaurant industries before she discovered her passion for using hair as a creative and professional medium.
“I love doing hair and talking with people. It brings me joy to make people feel good and to become someone’s trusted hair advisor. I come from an artistic family so I consider myself a ‘Hair Designer’ because creating
something especially for a client is so important! "
