In 2005, Shelly Streenz found herself at a crossroads. Working as a stylist, Shelly knew that there was more to a successful salon than just a haircut, so she set out with her own vision and a desire to make Bloomington/Normal beautiful, one person at a time.
She opened her doors with three employees dedicated not only to boosting self-esteem with beautiful hair, skin and nails, but teaching clients how to recreate their looks at home with the right tools and products from learning how to flat iron, or apply makeup to great cuticle care and nail art application. In the end, the Oh Baby team wants to teach their clients what the stylists know so each client can take the “I’ve just been to the salon” look and feel home with them.
From the beginning Oh Baby Hair & Spa has been about education; not only for its clients, but stylists as well. The beauty industry is constantly evolving, so Oh Baby requires monthly in-house education for all of its stylists, in addition to the 14 hours of training that are required outside of the salon. This means that every year, the Oh Baby stylists have more than double the education required by the state of Illinois.
And the education doesn’t stop there! Every service and product offered at Oh Baby Hair & Spa is thoroughly researched to ensure that every item on our shelf and service on our menu is top-of-the-line.
Today, Shelly’s vision has become a 3,000 square foot reality. Each of her eight staff members has been hand-selected by Shelly, who not only owns Oh Baby Hair & Spa, but keeps her scissors busy behind the chair as well. If you’re looking for salon services like cut, color or styling, manis, pedis, skin treatment or sunless tanning, Oh Baby is your salon and spa for feeling pampered and looking beautiful. Make an appointment or stop by today for the Oh Baby experience.
Our talented team is the heart and soul of Oh Baby Hair & Day Spa. We know that the bond you share with the people who enhance your outer beauty is incredibly important; so let us introduce ourselves!
