About Eric Leonardos

Eric As Stylist


Eric has been working in the Beauty Industry for over 15 years. It is no surprise that one of Eric’s favorite childhood past times was brushing his Mother’s hair and playing with her cosmetics. He started his beauty career as Resident Makeup Artist and Brow expert at a High-end, Multi-cultural Boutique salon in Austin, TX. 

Then he made his way to Los Angeles to pursue his dream doing hair and makeup with the high-profile, creative and noteworthy people of LA.  After freelancing for a couple years in Los Angeles, Eric missed working in the salon and decided to focus more on Hair Cutting, Color and the Art of Hairdressing. 

Very quickly his career began to take off doing hair for several celebrities and noteworthy clients including Betsy Brandt, Mary Louise Parker, Greg Louganis, and Tracy Gold. As well as the covers of CVLUX, Modeliste and EMMY’s Magazine.  Eric believes that a continue focus on Education, Creativity and Artistry are essential to mastering the craft of Hairdressing.

Eric stays busy creatively by working New York Fashion Week, taking classes, learning new techniques, as well as doing hair for Red Carpets and Editorial Hair Styling. Eric’s favorite clients he says, “is the client right in front of me, they are the most important person in the room!”

Eric As Activist


After Publicly disclosing his HIV status on Logo TV's Finding Prince Charming, Eric found himself with a platform to raise awareness around key issues effecting the communities he is apart of. He only claims to be an expert about one thing "his own experience" but listens carefully to his peers and fellow members of his community who share their experience with him.

Eric has decided to make being an Advocate for People Living with HIV one of  his top priorities as well as raising awareness around many other noble causes. "We have come so far around the challenges facing PLWH but we have a long way to go.

Staying active and bringing awareness to STIGMA, easier access to TREATMENT & PREVENTION, continuing to EDUCATE about sexual health, and HEALTHCARE. Everyone deserves the opportunity to live a happy, healthy and full life.

#FBF to that time I was featured on @huffpost  Sometimes we need to remind ourselves how fabulous we are. Sometimes we need look at where we have been, where we are now and where we are going. Asking ourselves empowering questions. What is my purpose? What do I have to give? What makes me happy? If you don’t know the answers to these questions it is okay! I promise, just start asking them and the answers will come. Sometimes we get distracted, lose sight of where we are, who we are, what we really want, I know have. Discomfort is merely an indicator that you are growing, changing and moving forward. “Remember you are a being made of light and stardust in the imagine of the divine and you are loved” quoted by greatest yoga guru in LA @rasta_far_i  special thanks to the people who remind me of this on the daily @masonmonroemeyer @wearejared @bianca_beautyatx .
