Style profile: Hairstylist mixes and matches to create her look

FARGO – A little of this, a little of that – Erin Hafliger mixes prints, colors and brands to create a style that’s uniquely hers.

I spotted Hafliger downtown at Babb’s Coffee House on her day off from Bucci Salon, where she works as a hair stylist.

Hafliger tops off her look with flawless makeup that complements her green eyes, and, of course, great hair.

What are you wearing? My jacket is from the Jennifer Lopez collection at Kohl’s, skirt is Forever 21, boots are Born and my necklace is from Proper & Prim.

Describe your style. I’m influenced by eras, like the 1940s and 1970s. I like to mix and match opposites, and make things my own. Sometimes, I’m a little country with city thrown in, or sometimes I’m soft with edgy thrown in. I also like vintage everything.

Where do you like to shop? Urban Outfitters, Etsy and Tatters (Tatters Alternative Clothing is a vintage store in Minneapolis). Locally, I like Proper & Prim, One World and Florentines de Paris for jewelry.

Flats or heels? I like to cheat my height and wear a medium heel.

Who are your fashion icons? Nicole Richie and Khloe Kardashian. They both have that hippy-chic style.

How do you know what hairstyle will look good on a client? I look at their face and eye shape. I’m all about eyebrows. I think they can really frame your face. I try to inspire my clients to try different things. Right now, I’m into the ombre hair trend, but I like to do it subtly.

What’s on your Christmas wish list? Burton socks because I love snowboarding, and a vintage ring. I lost a vintage jade ring, and I’d like to replace it.

Where are you on a typical Saturday night? I’m usually downtown or at a movie with friends. I really like downtown bars like the HoDo, Monte’s and Mezzaluna for their lounge-y appeal. Don’t get me wrong though, I like dive bars, too.
