Emily Hatfield started her beauty career in 2006 in Houston, where she gained experience as a stylist. Two years later, she moved to Austin and fell in love with everything the city embodies. In 2015, the not-yet-30-year-old Hatfield became the owner of Vain Salon and quickly took up shop in a renovated 1930s bungalow in the heart of East Austin. With her team of talented stylists, Hatfield is taking Vain to the next level through offering her clients excellent services in a relaxing setting. Hatfield and her team believe hair should be effortlessly beautiful and thus, they use their vast knowledge in the field, from styling to hair-care products, to educate clients about how to achieve their best looks. Hatfield loves living in Austin because she is constantly surrounded by amazing, strong and creative women who inspire her on a daily basis.
