The Hallas Family Portrait. Circa 1937 Kenne, New Hampshire

Erno is proud of his family's 63 years of Beauty Industry expertise and launched the Ultimate Salon Products .com website in celebration of the Hallas Family's 100 years in America. Erno's grandfather Ernest "Anastasios" Hallas came to the United States from Greece in 1915 and soon after that, moved his family to Upstate , New York. Erno's decision to expand his family's influence and expertise to the worldwide market was inspired by his desire to expand his charitable giving. Erno is committed to philotimo, family values, customer service excellence, product excellence, the spread of his vision of Love InfuZion and charitable giving. Through commitment and perseverance, Erno's vision resulted in the launch of a world class Internet store! Our family’s version of the American Dream became a reality with Ultimate Salon Products.com.

As the old saying goes, "You can't deny your family" and if you ask around the dining table at the numerous annual Hallas Family gatherings, you'll hear about the diverse roots family members have in the beauty business over the years. "Our dear Aunt Emily began working in the cosmetology & cosmetics industry in 1952. She quickly became a top rated professional working with many movie stars of the era. In 1957 she opened her first salon in Beverly Hills and later incorporated her renowned cosmetic business on the world famous Rodeo Drive in 1968. The list of family members holding cosmetology licenses is as long as it is impressive. Hallas family members in the Industry also include former Vice Presidents of industry giants Joico, CND and Nioxin Labs. We recognize these significant contributions to the beauty, cosmetics and salon industries and pay tribute to our roots and family tradition. The Ultimate Salon Products.com advisory board currently includes Eleni Hallas, a licensed cosmetologist since 1986, and owner of one of the most celebrated hair salons in Sparta Greece”.

Erno still remembers listening to Aunt Emily (pictured above 1957 Santa Monica) tell stories about the movie stars that frequented her salons on Wilshire Blvd. & Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, California 90210.

Our Aunt Emily opened her very first salon in the 1960's, near the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California. This was the location previously owned by world famous Anita Gray (close to the ever popular Brown Derby). Next, she partnered with the renowned Beverly Hills hairstylist Larry Bowser at his location on Rodeo (close to the famous Luau). Emily was widely recognized as a creative designer, stylist and makeup advisor to several of the biggest names in the Hollywood movie industry. She also was on contract with 20th Century Fox as an on-set stylist for many of their top stars. By 1968 she had incorporated her cosmetics company in Beverly Hills and became one of America's leading cream and cosmetic creators.

Our family includes our loyal and diverse clientele. Ultimately, we recognize our success comes from dedicated support of our family of customers. The Hallas Family thanks YOU! We hope you feel and experience our sincere Gratitude through experiencing our philosophy of LoveinFuzion, Quality and Giving Back!
