Amber Cullum - Cosmetologist/Salon Owner
Welcome to Lavish Salon! I am a wife and mother to 3 beautiful children, with over 23 years' experience in the beauty industry.
I've always had a strong focus on staying updated through continuing my education in advanced cutting and color techniques. This has led me to become a Certified Educator for Scruples Professional Hair Color, traveling to teach other hair professionals in the industry.
I am certified in Brazilian Blowouts and a Master certified Extensions Specialist, including hand-tied wefts, keratin fusion, tape-in's and i-tip beaded methods. Also attending hands-on workshops with top artists from around the world - I am a hair education junkie!
I follow trends while still maintaining the classic fundamentals, since precision and balance are key factors in achieving excellent hair color and cuts. My mission is to study my craft with continuous passion and education. Giving a thorough consultation is essential for a clear and concise plan. I aim to have an open ear and eye to ensure the best service possible, helping my clients look and feel their best!
Rene'e Bilbao - Nail Technician/Salon Owner
Long before my roots needed professional help, I was drawn to the fun, pampering atmosphere the right salon can radiate.
That's the atmosphere we want you to find at Lavish.
With seasonally changing trends, techniques constantly streamlined, this industry is far from dull.
I'm a people person, and after doing nails for almost two decades, my clients have become my friends. That makes continued education, product knowledge, and a professional service even more important to me.
Maintaining the health of the natural nail is my goal, whatever the service. I work mostly with Young Nails, OPI, and Light Elegance products in both gel and acrylic.
This industry is ever changing, and to stay successful, I continue to change with it.

Tondra Knudson - Cosmetologist
I grew up in the styling chair in my mother’s salons and developed the desire to do hair long before I was old enough to qualify. My career started 27 years ago. The first 19 years as a hairdresser were spent in California straight out of high school. I am Goldwell trained and have used this company from the start. I have a great appreciation for many different personalities of hairdressers.
Personally I have developed the love of guiding my clients to preserving the health of hair while maintaining their look that makes them feel refreshed and beautiful. Natural looking highlights and longer hair are my specialty! I love making hair shine like sun kissed Carmel glow on brown hair to a combination of honey and Beach blonde, and making that grey disappear.
You might often catch me consulting about essential oils as well as healthier color alternatives. I’m a mother of 4, and enjoy any time that they will give to me.

I love what I do and wouldn't trade it for anything!
