Eva is our founder, head stylist, and true fashionista. Although she's young in her years, and known for having 'blond moments,' she's seen and done more than your average stylist. Before opening The Beauty Lounge, Eva completed a two year apprenticeship, assisted in opening a salon in Carmel, and opened her own studio, Rock and Chic Studio. She's also styled Kendra Wilkinson's hair for photo shoots and been named an Indianapolis Monthly Top Stylist. Now that's impressive! But seeing her clients smile and know they feel relaxed and beautiful is what makes it worth it for Eva. She loves every aspect of hair designing, from the color, to the cut, to the amazing styling work. Although owning and running The Beauty Lounge occupies most of her time, she enjoys going to the gym to do yoga and pilates, reading/writing, traveling (especially to the Caymans), and watching movies. As the youngest of four children, she also enjoys spending time with her six adorable nieces and nephews. Looking to the future, Eva looks forward to continuing to expand her business and giving her employees a fun and enjoyable environment to work in.
