Our Approach

Established in the same location at 33rd & Pioneers for over 40 years, The Hair Lounge, LLC., began its vision in 2010 by owners Kendra and Lyle Trumbley.  It was their dream to have a salon where team members could go to work and have fun.  To be a part of something they could call their own.  Kendra guides the team behind the scenes, working with over 34 years of experience.  Our salon has provided hair care for the entire family as well as serving many generations.  Doing so has made our salon a staple in the Lincoln, NE community.  We are now proud to have expanded to include Executive Directors who can reap the rewards of salon ownership all while enjoying their careers.  And Company Educators who can train our staff where and when we need it.  The Hair Lounge truly is an experience in itself.  We know you will enjoy our atmosphere as our stylists all share the same passion.  Having fun and creating beautiful people!


We always want you to be 100% satisfied with your services.  If you are not 100% satisfied, we ask that you contact us within 5 days of your appointment so that we may schedule you to have your service(s) corrected free of charge (same service) at your convenience.  Any issues reported longer than 5 days from the original appointment date will not immediately be considered a redo, but will be assessed on a case by case basis.

Just call her Katie!  She loves doing highlights, lowlights and perms.  One of her favorite things is fashion colors too.  Katie's personality will light up the room, and to put it in her own words, she's all about "creating the look that the client asked for and seeing their face is priceless - and them saying WOW, YOU DID THAT!"  She is funny and outgoing and will have plenty of stories to share while you're in her chair.  Outside of the salon, she's spending time with her son at the park or the movies, and even singing to their favorite songs.  Katie is a ray of sunshine who will create beautiful hair and you'll be smiling when you leave!
