Meet the Crew
Ambia Elms
Owner/Hairstylist

An almost native of Arizona, Ambia has spent 22+ of her 27 years here doing hair. She loves doing short textured haircuts and is currently not doing any color services.

In her free time, she is usually hanging out with her family watching ridiculous television and eating tacos and wondering why pumpkin cream cold brews can't be a year-round thing.

 Creating a salon space that had a smaller carbon footprint was super important and she is working to make olive + elm not only a salon full of amazing Stylists, but also a space where almost every product used has little to no negative impact on our creatures, our water and most importantly, our bodies.

'Nothing makes me happier than seeing the 'ah-ha' moment on someones face when they finally figure something out.

This includes my clients when they learn something new about how to take care of their hair or when one of my Stylists learns a new technique or business trick.'
