Eric Forman

Eric Forman, a hair stylist to Aaliyah, died Aug. 25 in the Bahamas plane crash that also claimed the lives of the singer and seven others. He was 29.

Forman, who grew up in Los Angeles, was close friends with hair stylist Anthony Dodd, who also died in the crash. Both men had survived a 1993 drive-by shooting and began to work together.

A rising talent, Forman had an A-list clientele that included Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, Jennifer Lopez, Luther Vandross and Destiny’s Child. But Forman considered himself Aaliyah’s personal stylist. He often traveled with the songstress and budding actress.

Both Forman and Dodd joined Aaliyah on the set of her recently wrapped film, “Queen of the Damned.” Forman was also expected to accompany Aaliyah to the shooting of a sequel to the “Matrix.”
