L’Erin Stortz


As the talented beauty that keeps Matthew Morris Salon and Skincare at the forefront of its industry (and Denver’s social scene), L’Erin Stortz is a fashionable force. Here, she shares a few of the things that put a spring in her step.

  1. My Name; I was named after a makeup company in the 80s, L’ERIN COSMETICS. Apparently, I was destined to work in the beauty industry.
  2. My Wokout; Right now I am training for my third ½ marathon so I’m either running at Wash Park, sprinting the stairs at Red Rocks, or taking an OrangeTheory Fitness class.
  3. My Boss, Matthew Morris; Hair genius to everyone else, but to me, working one on one with him daily I get to see so much more. He is a true inspiration to me; a mentor, leader, partner, business and marketing genius, and friend. No doubt, this salon is more than a salon; it’s a continually evolving brand. The work he puts in after being behind the chair every day, not everyone may ever see but is what truly sets him apart from the rest, and is why big things are happening in the future of MM… like his purchase of a building on South Broadway for our NEW SALON… OPENING JULY 2012!!
  4. Golf; You can always find me playing golf with my family at Pinehurst Country Club every Sunday morning in the summer! My family has an Annual Family Golf Tournament…a trophy and everything! The last few years I have come in last, but this year has my name all over it!
  5. My Favorite Product; Kerastase Elixir Ultime! It’s liquid gold! This product has completely transformed my hair! Just so you all know…an Elixir sells every 20 seconds in the world, seriously! This is the ultimate Must Have for anyone (yes, men too!)
  6. My Signature Scent; Issey Miyake. I always spray it in my hair because it lasts longer!
  7. My Statement Necklaces; I can’t live without my Bamboleo Stella & Dot necklace!
  8. My New Addiction; Yep… I have one…it’s called…Pinterest. I’m on it daily! It is amazing for finding new ideas for outfits, recipes (like baked avocado with mashed potatoes in the center, yum!), interior design, fitness inspiration, and so much more!
  9. My Favorite Reads; I live and breathe business. Everyone jokes “I eat it for breakfast”. It’s true. My favorites right now are Achieving Excellence from the Essential Managers series, Harvard Business Management Review, The Inspiration Factor, and my new journal – ONE LINE A DAY (You really realize what is important in life when you only have one sentence to describe everything in! I love to watch how my life will change over the next 5 years)
  10. My Signature Style can be described in one word… H&M. I’m always dressed ‘to a T’ in my style staples; a classic blazer, black skinny pants or a fitted black pencil skirt, a pair of 5 inch heels, and of course a statement necklace…or dressed down, in workout gear and sneakers. There really is no in between for me. I’m not a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl.
  11. My Skincare; Our 2 Licensed Medical Estheticians at Matthew Morris Salon and Skincare (Amy Kimmig and Christie Nasi) have completely transformed my skin! I am a regular at getting Microderm, Peels, Deep Pore Facials, and my new favorite, Micocurrent! Plus, I use the best of the best, Obagi and my Clarisonic daily!
  12. South Broadway; Very excited for our salon to soon be closer to all the amazing restaurants, boutiques, and bars on South Broadway! My favorites right now are El Diablo (best guacamole!), Deluxe, Delight, and Beatrice and Woodsley, and of course True Love boutique (best shoes!)
  13. My Wish List; The Michael Kors Rose Golden Chronograph Watch!
