Amazing! Awesome! The best ever! A little crazy! Okay, Okay, in all seriousness I’m a down to earth, easy going, fun loving, patient, bubbly, compassionate person. I take pride in my work and truly strive to make my clients desires a reality. I’m always up for a challenge and like to think outside the box to give you something unique. This may sound corny or over used but I honestly have such a passion for what I do that you could say I live and breathe hair.

I specialize in hand painting and lived in colors. I am here to give you a natural look with either using a balayage technique or foils. Outside the salon you’ll find me being your #1 plant mom and auntie. I enjoy the simple things in life and good conversation.

I came to Omaha from Arkansas, where I went to hair school. I love a good fashion color or blonding session. Lover of good music and food!

Eli Ostblom

Designer I Stylist

The best part of my job is making people feel like the best versions of themselves. Self care is so important and so often skipped over. I specialize in curly haircuts and styles, as well as hand-painted highlights. Basically, I love to work with what you have rather than hide your natural beauty! My pronouns are They/Them, and when I’m not here at the salon you will find me being a parent to my 3 fur babies and my many, many plants.

I’ve been doing this since 1998, I have seen it all!
