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 took 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 & later hand-tied extension certified.
Jaime specializes in color & cut corrections, complete transformations, grey transitions, fashion colors & technical cutting.
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 & one of her cats. Also, she is oddly obsessed with Zombies.
Stylist // Supporting Management
Aliana... She's the artsy-fartsy one of the bunch. You'll never know what hair color she'll be sporting when you come to your appointment! She began her career in 2017 when she participated in a competition during Walk for Water at the Aveda Art & Sciences Institute Austin, where her entry turned the most heads. She took the highest accolades & was awarded a full cosmetology scholarship! Her passion for beauty is deepened by her love of all things makeup. Aliana is a naturally talented artist who's excitement is stirred by being creative.
Aliana's specialties are all kinds of colors (especially fashion colors), makeup, bobs, long hair, hand-tied extensions & is one helluva makeup artist.
Aliana, in her family, is the oldest of four! In 2019 she got married... not in a dress. If you know Aliana, she doesn't wear dresses. We seriously have only seen her in a dress once & she hated every moment in it. During her free time she likes to spend time with her husband (when he isn't deployed) & her family. She has a dog & a snake. She enjoys gaming, buying makeup, getting tattooed & Bob's Burgers.
Stylist //Salon Coordinator
Nicole, 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.
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.
Salon Stylist // Extension Educator
This dude is the nicest, most respectful young man you'll ever meet. Spencer has had the opportunity to begin his career early. He, at one time, attended a charter classic high school. His school was geared to build a career though college, such as a lawyer or doctor. While he spent most of his time there doing hair, he & his parents decided that was not the path he was intended to take. He was a part of the Covid-19 disaster where he finished high school, finished his senior year at home & didn't get to walk the stage. He graduated already licensed in the State of Texas! He was introduced to the owner by a mutual friend during a big event where they were doing hair for donations for charity. He immediately jumped in to help without ever being asked. After that we just HAD to add him to our team!
Spencer is the oldest of three. On his free time he does more hair then what he already did at school & the salon. If that ain't passion then we don't know what is. His family is very important to him & they love being the mediums for him to practice his craft. He colors his dog's hair, but I'm not sure that she feels the same way about it. Don't worry, it's animal-safe color. His boyfriend is another one of his hair canvases, is extremely supportive & our salon cheerleader... Actually, so is his mom. Talking about his mom, when you meet him you should ask him about his mom's potatoes. It's the best story. Anyways, lets get back on topic. the topic is always hair. That's what he spends all his money on... hair color, mannequins & hair products.
