Gaining interest in fashion, specifically the hair industry, while an International model for Maggie’s Inc., Boston and Wild Men Modeling, Milan, Italy, Eric Howard changed career course in 1991 and enveloped himself in every facet of the beauty industry. Networking and assisting top designers while in school and landing a Senior Stylist position upon graduation in 1992, Eric became an educator and master of ceremonies for Dellaria Corporation, which included the representation of Dellaria’s Ariella NYC liquids product line.
Eric became fascinated by high performing products, artistic stage work, and sales. Recognizing his entrepreneuric calling, Eric opened his own salon, SENJ Hair Studio, in 1994 and was immediately scouted by Aquage, a leader in high performance styling and finishing products. Beginning as an intern, Eric worked his way up to the National Stage, joining Aquage’s Artistic Team in just 2 short years and generating the company’s highest indirect sales volume. In 1998, Eric was drafted by Pureology, an up and coming professional brand, where he met his future partner in WWBE, Jeffery Orrell. Eric quickly became a leader on Pureology’s National Artistic Team, greatly affecting the com-pany’s national sales and contributing to the successful acquisition of Pureology by L’Oreal in 2007.
In 2008, Eric sold SENJ to begin focusing on the concept of World Wide Beauty Exchange. That same time, he moved his artistic talents to the representation of FHI Heat, Korea, a leader in high performing technologically advanced styling tools. As a Senior International Platform Artist and a member of FHI’s National Sales Team, Eric was once again in the spotlight — styling for such venues as Mercedes Benz Fashion week NYC. With the economic downturn, FHI closed its doors, and Eric turned his attention to his second salon, Planet Color in Andover, MA.
Never losing sight of WWBE, Eric launched this innovative at the 2010 Las Vegas Cosmoprof to great success and manufacturer interest. Currently hairstylist, salon owner, and International Platform Artist/National Sales Team Leader for NEUMA Beauty, Laguna Beach, CA, all of Eric’s expertise and responsibilities have led him the role that he is most passionate about — innovator and co-founder of World Wide Beauty Exchange.
