our story

Your hair helps define you, whether you want it to or not. At Lush Salon, we help you find the right look for you. We help you do you.

Randi Ellis always knew she’d open a salon. When she moved to Kansas City from the Pacific Northwest she had a business plan waiting for the right moment. She had honed her craft at one of Seattle's top salons, and eventually family brought her to Kansas City, where she built a loyal following working at Westport’s now defunct Shag Salon.

As a stylist she loves connecting with the variety of people that come to her chair. And she's built a career building long-lasting relationships with her clients. Helping them change their hair to reflect the changes in their lives.

That personal connection and her desire to create a modern, inviting space where you feel at home, led her to open Lush Salon in a small upstairs space at 45th & Main in 2012.

She created a space where you can let your guard down and be yourself: a comfortable, creative salon in the heart of Kansas City open to all looking for beautiful, innovative styles. A salon that helps you do you.

This past June, she relocated to a new space on W 39th Street with an expanded selection of services including Sugaring Hair Removal and Airbrush Tanning and collection of experienced stylists and barbers who can help you find a new look, recommend the latest trend or simply shape up your tried-and-true.

Lush Salon is excited to join the neighborhood, which celebrates the independent spirit of Kansas City. We feature artists and makers with monthly art exhibitions and merchandise and apparel from local creators. The salon participates in W 39th District’s monthly 3rd Friday and will soon offer a variety of events from hair classes to botox parties and more.
