Our Team


Hi! I'm Jenn, Owner and Hair Stylist at Elevate! I became passionate about low toxic hair color quite a few years ago. So much so, that I really felt the call to completely makeover my business and what I offer my guests. I felt it important to bring safer options to those that were wanting to color their hair without sacrificing health and safety. I have three children - a daughter in college, a daughter in high school, and a son in elementary. I have a wonderful life partner and we enjoy being outdoors whenever we get the chance. In my free time, I try to hike, meditate, and read. You can follow me @jenjenhairstylist.

Nichole Hobbs

My Name is Nichole! Creativity has always been my passion. I am originally an art major, graduating from the Kansas City Art Institute. I have dabbled in everything from sculptural costuming to installation and performance art and realized my work always involves makeup and hair in one way or another. This led me to explore that I had a huge passion for the beauty industry.

I've had work in many runway shows, publications, and commercials/film, including working with talent such as Karen Gillan, (Dr. Who/Guardians of the Galaxy) and David Dastmalchian (The Dark Knight/Suicide Squad.) I also have experience as an educator of cosmetology. In the salon, I specialize in vivid colors, custom hair cuts, blonding, and color correction. I am incredibly meticulous in my work. I love to do bridal and special occasion hairstyles and makeup. Being able to show people how beautiful they are is an incredibly fulfilling experience. I can create looks anywhere from natural glam to editorial or special effects.

I have four beautiful bird children who are my light. In my free time I still enjoy performing and creating art. I've been singing with a band called Vibralux for 11 years. I love reading, learning, intellectual conversation, films, taking any opportunity to go on adventures or see new places, and singing to my birds when I think no one is listening!

I specialize in blonding and dimensional colors that will make you feel your best! I fell in love with doing hair because of the transformation it can have on a person, not only from the outside but also the inside. I’m in it to see a big smile on your face at the end!
In my spare time I drink excessive amounts of coffee, go on adventures with my husband, attend concerts around Kansas City, and hang out with family and friends.
