Our Master Stylists in Nashville firmly stand behind the true meaning of OHANA—it means “family” in Hawaiian. Ohana Hair Salon was established on Music Row in 2012 by Carrie Holder. With the help of family and friends, her dream to open up a Nashville Hair Salon finally came true. She wanted Ohana to be a place people can get away, come and relax, and just enjoy that few hours of freedom they get from their everyday, busy lives. Ohana was able to expand in 2016, landing in midtown. This Nashville Hair Salon is a hidden gem with a boutique Nashville vibe.
