I've been loving what I do and doing what I love since 1998. When I began my career as a hairstylist and makeup artist I had no idea I would become so passionate about beauty and people. I have evolved in so many ways from just being a young stylist not knowing much to being the top stylist and haircolor educator in the salon in just a few years. I opened `Ohana Salon in 2008 and I also work for Aveda teaching haircolor to other stylists in the industry. I still love doing hair for my guests but my new mission is to create an amazing team of stylists doing great work and creating a reputation in the world for being the best at what we do. I want every guest to look and feel amazing when they leave `Ohana Salon no matter what stylist they see.
Master Stylist, Educator
Donna always loved fashion and as a stylist for 30 years she enjoys and follows her passion in the beauty industry. Donna as a previous salon owner for 7 years understands the value of getting the best. As a master stylist she is experienced and believes and continues to keep up with the look and trends of today through education. I've always enjoyed getting to know my guests, how much time they have so everyday you're the best of you. Let me personalize your look whether it's color, weave, ombre, balayage, makeup, cut or style I will customize to you. I'm looking forward to seeing you.
Master Stylist, Makeup Artist
I am a Michigan native and a graduate from Douglas J Aveda Institute. I have been in the salon industry for 13 years now and continue to have a deep passion for beauty and hair. As a stylist I feel it is most important to gain an understanding of a guest’s lifestyle to deliver a “look” that works best for them while enhancing their natural beauty. I enjoy engaging in great conversation about current trends and giving my guests the knowledge to style their hair which promotes a sense of empowerment. My goal as a stylist is to continually provide great services while also building great relationships with my guests.

Master Stylist, Barber
I have been serving the industry since 1989. In my search for fostering culture of life, growth, and most important education, I found my way to Aveda in 1991. I was a Pure-fessional with Aveda for 7 years and a hair color educator for Framise for 8 years. I stepped back from teaching to grow my skill set. To me, knowledge is the key. That knowledge gave me the opportunity to work as a makeup artist and hair designer on movie sets, videos for children's education programs, and music videos. During my years in the industry, one cut at a time, I raised over $700,000 for charities worldwide in my travels around this planet we call home. In my endless journey of growth and personal development I moved from Atlanta to the Valley of the Sun where I have found an oasis of family; skilled, fashioned, talented, and a place to grow and ascend to higher levels.
Ever since I was a little girl, I always wanted to play with hair. In 2015 I decided to finally pursue my passion and I attended the Aveda Institute of Denver. I later decided to make my big move to Arizona and transfered to the Aveda Institute of Phoenix. Making people feel beautiful is what I enjoy most about this industry. I knew I wanted to stay with Aveda and was so happy to find 'Ohana! I am very excited to continue my education and experience here.
I'm Karli and a stylist at 'Ohana. I've been doing hair for 3 years, but have been experimenting with hair since I was a child. I love doing all forms of blonding from balayage to babylites, there is a blonde for you. I'm also a mom of three so when I'm not in the salon we are either out on an adventure or lounging in the pool. Thank you for choosing 'Ohana and I look forward to meeting you!

Hi my name is Melissa! I've been doing hair for 3 years. I graduated from Aveda Institute Phoenix. I started working at 'Ohana while I was in school. I've always wanted to do hair because I loved watching my mom get ready to go out with friends. I experimented on myself at age 5 by cutting my bangs off. As I got older, I knew this was my passion & craft! My favorite things to do are precision cutting, blonding and balayage. When I'm not at the salon I'm spending time with my awesome husband and family. I look forward to meeting you and I'm glad you chose 'Ohana Salon!
Hello! My name is Mallory and I am a stylist at Ohana Salon. From an early age I’ve been around the world of beauty. Spending most of my childhood getting permed and pampered by my stylist Mom, I fell in love with this industry. 18 years later, I found the Aveda institute! I crafted a passion for hair I didn’t know I had. I've been licensed since 2015, and I’ve been growing and crafting my passion for this amazing industry we call beauty! I love to work with color, blonding, and cutting. Singing and dancing will also be added to your service as I can almost promise you a show at the chair as well! Outside of work I am a dog mom to 3 adorable pits, they keep me on my toes to say the least! I like to explore Arizona as much as I can being that I’ve only lived here for 8 years! I can’t wait to see you. So what are you waiting for? Book with me!
