Erika "Rikk" Cross was always interested in art. At a very young age, Rikk was always found doodling on whatever she could get her hands on. With a hair stylist as a mother, Cross was introduced to the beauty industry. Some of her earliest memories include sneaking into her mother's home salon to see if any of the clients or their children wanted their nails done. From that moment on, nail art became Rikk's passion. Expressing her creativity through her clients nails guided Rikk through school and eventually became her career choice. 

On the latest episode of The Beauty Block, we sit down with Rikk to discuss her craft!
