Meet Team Indigo
To know them is to love them.
Owner // Stylist // Educator
Jaime is the jack-of-all trades in the salon & a bit bat-shit crazy. There isn't a lot she cannot do! After being told she couldn't make it on her own & that she should continue in college, Jaime pursued her childhood dream of becoming a hairstylist. Her passion began as a wee-tot going to the salon with her mom. She wanted to be JUST like her mom's stylist. Pretend tools were not enough. Within her family she was well-known for fixing Barbie's messed up cuts her cousins gave their dolls. Her passion was further fueled by a realization that she was "not like the rest".
Jaime began her career in 2002. She has worn many hats in the salon world. First she began her apprenticeship at a high-end Aveda salon in New Braunfels, TX. Her heart has always been led by coloring more then anything, but grew to love cutting! By 2007 she was moving to the North Austin area where she spent nine years doing hair at another high-end salon in Cedar Park, TX. In the years of being in that salon she led stylists in color, cutting & styling education, as well as product knowledge. She was on the design team where their work was featured on the runways & editorials. In 2008 she sought out & accomplished becoming a Certified Color Educator. Since then she has played an integral role in education training up & coming, licensed stylist & designing national education with her corporate education team. By 2011 she became the first director of education for the salon she was at. By the summer of 2017, The Indigo Salon was born! Later that same year she became a tape-in extension certified educator.
Jaime specializes in color & cut corrections, complete transformations, grey transitions, fashion colors & technical cutting. She offers hand-tied and tape-in extensions.
Jaime is an adventurous, family kind-of-babe. During her free time she enjoys cars (driving & collecting), traveling, scuba diving, anything adrenaline pumping, being active (you may even catch her singing and dancing in the salon), tattoos, and just about any activity to do with water. Jaime has been married to her equally adventurous, family-oriented & crazy husband since 2016 & have been known to race bicycles, go ghost hunting & car racing! They love going to the movies & the comedy club! She has two awesome sons & a beautiful bonus daughter! Her favorite color is purple, particularly the beautiful blue-based violet called Indigo. There isn't much in her life that doesn't show that. She loves her dog & only one of her cats. Also, she is oddly obsessed with Zombies.
Stylist // Salon Coordinator
Nicole was born the first of six siblings.
She's a hard-worker with incredible ideas that is plays out in her life, as well as the salon. She rounds up everyone at the salon to participate in inspirational contests & learning how to have a social media presence. In 2011, Nicole began her career at Baldwin Beauty School. She began assisting Jaime all those years ago. She is such a hard worker that she worked two jobs while she built her clientele. For a brief stint, after leaving the salon she worked at for five years, she spent booth renting as her own boss. However, the stress of being a business owner with the added stress of an extremely slow area was not for her. As the salon was adding to the team, Nicole was a shoo-in.
Nicole specializes in all haircuts but more specifically bobs & pixies, all things color (especially dimensional color like balayage), fashion colors, bridal hair & perms. Her favorite is grey coverage and grey blending.
Nicole enjoys exploring Austin & finding the hottest, new spots to eat & have cocktails... Okay, maybe she just has one cocktail, because #momlife so she doesn't get drunk. She also loves window shopping at Target & Costco & dreaming of all the things she could buy but doesn't because she has a baby now. If you ever come to meet her you'll learn the interesting & unique name of her baby girl.
Stylist // Cutting Educator
Oh, Kylee… What can we say? She’s the perfect addition to our salon team. She is yet another long lost stylist friend of ours all the way back in 2014. It was seren.freaking.dipity!
Let’s go back in time before we continue. Here’s the down-low on Kylee. A born and raised Minnesotan, Kylee was raised fishing, riding horses, was a member of 4-H and raised sheep. She was a military police officer of the US Air Force, where she was honorably discharged after 13 years. Kylee went from USAF to Paul Mitchell, where she graduated in 2014. What a career change!
With her new skills, she joined an Aveda team (here’s the shameless plug) where was trained by a fine team of educators there, including Jaime. Nicole also has some background with her, as we were all working for the same team. Kylee believes you should pay attention to the little details and excellence will follow. She values practice, repetition, learning and hard work.
Kylee’s specialties are technical women’s haircuts, textured-messy women’s haircuts, blonding techniques, fashion colors, keratin smoothing treatments, and hand-tied and tape-in extensions. She also serves as our cutting educator where she promotes learning without the fuss of making cuts difficult and unenjoyable. We want to have fun practicing our craft.
You can’t have all the discipline mentioned above without a little fun. She’s a tequila-skilled karaoke singer, loves pretty shit (who doesn’t?), loves fashion, listens to several genres of rock (the heavier stuff), hip hop, 80’s and 90’s music. When she’s done being a certified badass, she likes to spend her time chilling, possibly with a movie and/or tequila. Kylee is the proud wife of a Texas-born man and her two boys… Can you say testosterone overload in her life? No wonder she likes working with us ladies. Also, did we mention she likes tequila?
Where do we start with Vicky? First off, she’s the sweet one of the bunch. We like people who are sweet… At least we don’t get cavities from them.
Vicky was raised in North Texas. She attended community college but knew it wan’t the right path for her. She and her bestie grew up together and would change their hair all the time… in her friend’s bathroom, which I’m sure Vicky’s mom appreciated. Her family eventually moved to Cedar Park and didn’t return to college that semester. Instead, she moved back in with her family and pursued a career in beauty, her true passion. She hasn’t looked back since.
Vicky graduated from the Aveda Institute in 2017 and wound up spending four years at an Aveda salon with Kylee. Geez, we are just one big puzzle of a family, aren’t we? Her specialties include women and men’s cuts, blonding techniques, Keratin smoothing treatments, and hand-tied and tape-in extensions.
Don’t let Vicky’s sweet nature fool you; deep down she is an adventurous gal. She’s learning two new skills; scuba diving and how to ride a motorcycle. She recently acquired a motorcycle of her very own. Talking about motorcycles, her new passion was introduced to her by her fiancé. They are a part of a motorcycle club with other like-minded enthusiasts. Vicky spends her free time hanging out, catching some rays at the pool and playing with her two pittie babies, Blu-Z and Pepper. When she marries she’ll become a step-mom, too! Insta-family!

Travel trailers and remodeling them is a passion of hers. She currently lives in a fifth-wheel in Burnet.

Torquoise, she loves torquise.
