Elana Eades


A southern California native, Elana got her start by doing hair and makeup for the television and movie industry in Hollywood, California. After building a very impressive portfolio of celebrity clients and high profile experience, Elana wanted to experience the fashion world of hair.

She gained experience by working behind the scenes of L.A. & N.Y. Fashion week; as well as working with some of the most prestigious photographers on editorial shoots such as David Lachapelle. To add to her extensive list of accolades, Elana took on the work as hairstylist for an H&M campaign and from there, dove into many other areas of editorial and fashion.

Elana later found herself in NYC where she furthered her training at the acclaimed AVEDA Institute in Soho, downtown. After training within the Aveda brand, Elana was led to her career at one of the top salons in New York City; Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa. At Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa, Elana quickly became one of Paul Labrecque's In salon color educators. She was responsible for In house training for the stylists and was part of the education division and support staff. Her passion and knowledge for color was how she decided to position herself to a career in mentorship and developing other stylists.

After a successful New York city career as a sought after stylist, Elana later moved back to her southern California roots and established a successful business at San Diego's, Bombshell Salon and Spa in Encinitas.

She was happy to grow her roots back home but after meeting her husband in San Diego, and having to relocate for his job, she opened up her own salon when they relocated overseas to Japan.
