Ericka Dotson, Co Founder and Creative Director of Indique Hair, is the first African-American woman to retail and brand premium hair globally. She was inspired by clients to fill the void in the hair extension industry with a premier, knowledgeable and customer- orientated business.
Dotson set her initial career path towards a traditional office profession. While working in a corporate environment in Austin, TX, she rekindled her love of hairstyling and began to sharpen her skills in hair extensions, often working heavily with women experiencing hair loss. Her time as a stylist led her down many creative paths including styling for many fashion shoots and runways. Ultimately it was the frustration Dotson’s clients expressed when purchasing hair extensions that sparked the idea of creating a company. Her drive and passion for ensuring the highest quality hair for her clients morphed into Dotson’s partnership with Krishan Jhalani and the founding of Indique Hair.
Dotson is the creative force of Indique Hair and spearheads the innovative pieces in the collections and branding methods. Indique has been adorned by numerous celebrities and industry influencers and has 15 retail locations: New York City, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, DC, Houston, Atlanta. Los Angeles, Dallas and Miami, and South Africa. With Dotson’s vision and experience, Indique is focused on providing exclusively premium virgin hair extensions. Ericka strives to maintain that Indique’s quality assurance steps are comprehensive and exhaustive, while continuing to improve and find additional methods to maintain and increase quality and service.
