Centerville & Lebanon
Owner & Founder
Amber has always believed that the salon experience is just as important as the finished product clients go home with. Before opening Salon Noir Centerville in 2010, Amber spent close to ten years honing her skills. In 2020 she opened her second location in Downtown Lebanon.
Her goal in starting Salon Noir was to design a space in which would be comfortable to be creative, and welcoming to clients. The relaxing, unique environment reflects her identity, values, and vision. It is a home, away from home and a dream come to fruition. Knowing there is always room for improvement, she strives for perfection, whether it be in a client's visit, or in running the day to day.

What is your favorite thing about working in the salons and why?
-I really enjoy setting the stage in each of my businesses for a great, personalized experience! Every client is unique and should be approached that way.
I also love my amazing staff and helping them stay educated and build their businesses.
As far as hair goes, I love seeing the latest trends walk out of my salons! Fresh, shiny dark, hair has also been a personal fave & modern shags! Also... baby bangs! I'm attracted to anything with a ton of texture!
What is your hidden talent or something unique about you most people might not know?
- I grew up riding, training, and showing horses. It's been a long time since I've had horses, but I love to be around them when I can!
Early Bird or Night Owl?
-Night Owl. Always have been, always will be!
What is you favorite food and/or drink?
-I am a coffee hound! I love cold brew or an oat milk latte with extra espresso.
As far as food... I was a vegetarian for 16 years but recently started eating meat again. I like trying all kinds of foods, but when it comes down to it LOVE pizza. I could probably eat it every day... which is a bit of a problem! LOL
What celebrity have you been told you look like?
-I've gotten Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry. Must be the bangs!
Describe the worst hair style you've ever had.

What do you like to do when you aren't working in the salon?
-I have a passion for art, movies, decorating, and embroidering but my ABSOLUTE favorite thing to do when I'm not working is to see live music. Karaoke, hanging with my husband, family and pets are also really high on the list.
