Meet the Crew
Ambia Elms
Owner/Master Hairstylist

An almost native of Arizona, Ambia has spent 22+ of her 27 years here doing hair. She specializes in short to medium textured haircuts and color.

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 someone's 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.'

Carli Malee
Master Hairstylist

While raised on the beaches of Southern California, Carli made Arizona her home in  2002. With over 20 years of experience in the beauty industry, Carli brings a wide array  of talent to the team. 

She is proficient in cutting all hair types and styles including barber cuts, textured  pixies, precision bobs and long waving layers. Her color skills are equally as vast. When not in the salon, Carli can be found perusing local museums, wandering thrift  shops or getting lost in non-fiction.
