OWNER | STYLIST | EUFORA SPECIALIST
Hello Friends! I am Mandy Ferguson, Owner of Swank Hair Studio & a Hair Stylist Specialist. My passion for the beauty industry began in about 6th grade when I was cutting my friends "bangs" at church camp many moons ago. I have been earning an income doing what I truly love for 16 years. With the support of my sweet husband & my 2 now "big"' boys.....my family stepped out in faith to bring to life a dream that is now called SWāNK! Since the beginning of my career, the need to be an EDUCATED stylist burned inside of me. I held the position of a TIGI Ambassador for 2 years. I also attended Advanced Foiling & Creative Color Classes and became a Redken Specialist. In partnering with Eufora in May 2018, I immersed myself in the Eufora brand & culture. I have met my match. When you come to be my guest, you will find I have a true passion for learning the newest techniques so that I can bring your unique style to life. Communication is the most important key during a consultation & we will talk thoroughly before creating "your personal beauty plan". Once I have identified your face shape, hairline, skin color, & hair type I will make my professional recommendations & listen to your "wants & needs". When creating your chic new look, your color & cut will be styled to complement each other. No matter how fun & edgy or classic or California you want your look to be...Together we can make it happen! My excitement for this industry will show & I look forward to creating a working relationship with you soon.
Hey y'all, I'm Jessica Michaud! I spent the first 4 years of my life in a little town in SW Arkansas then spent the next part of my life wherever the Navy sent my family! I decided in high school that "making others feel pretty" would be the perfect job for me. I graduated from Paul Mitchell the School and attending hours of training, classes and mentoring from some of the best stylists in our industry. I still desire to grow my personal skill set to change with new trends. I love helping others achieve the look they desire or maybe trying a new "swanky" style to change it up a bit! I absolutely LOVE color! If beachy blonde natural is your goal... let's highlight! Or maybe the darker sleek ombre is the "new you"! Maybe you're a "curly girl" (me too!) and need fresh ideas on what's a curly girl to do? I'm up for that challenge! From our initial consultation to the finishing touches, my goal is to completely satisfy you! I love meeting new people and building lasting work relationships! Looking forward to meeting you soon!

I began my career in Jonesboro before relocating here to LR. Upon doing so, I mentored under the owner, Mandy Ferguson, for a year. I absolutely LOVE transformations, whether it be cut or color. I love BLONDING & BALAYAGE & creating custom lengths utilizing the Foxtail Handtied Extension Method. You seriously can have the hair of your dreams! Making education a priority is so important to me & even more so is offering you the ultimate salon experience. If you're interested in making a change....come see me! I get excited to see my guests fall in love with their hair again! XOXO!
Hi everyone, it's Rachael Emerson! As a lifelong Arkansan, it truly brings me such joy to be able to utilize my passion and skills in making people look and feel as beautiful as I know they are. Confidence is something we love to encourage from the moment you take a seat in my chair. Having graduated from the Salon Professional Academy, I have had the opportunity to hone in my talent over the past 8 years. And as the industry progresses so has my education — having extended far beyond the classroom. Even as the pandemic has caused such panic in our world, I have regularly attended continued education to further learn from other stylists. Staying up to date and on trend is a key focus. As my career has advanced I’ve come to uniquely specialize in color; specifically balayage techniques. Giving my clients their dream hair in a livable and low maintenance way is something I always aim for. Whatever brings you into the salon — be it a special day or a brief reprieve from the world; I cannot wait to work with you and bring your imagination to life.
