Lexi Lanka has hairdressing in her blood. Growing up in a salon from a young age, Lexi simply fell in love with all aspects of the Beauty Industry. After formal training, she apprenticed for some of Omaha’s premier hairdressing talent right here at BUNGALOW/8. Through that mentorship, and on-going structured education, Lexi learned the fine art of polished detail work and the expert delivery of haircutting and color services.
Inspiration for Lexi comes from a myriad of different sources; music, art, and fashion speak to her inner core. Compounding this inspiration, she has flexed her artistic prowess behind the chair as well as behind the camera. Lexi has worked on a wide spectrum of editorial shoots including local and national magazine shoots, fashion lookbooks, and runway presentations. Creativity on-set (and in the salon) is imperative and Lexi thrives on actualizing a concept into something tangible.
Precision haircutting and men’s grooming are particular passions of hers. She intrinsically visualizes the architecture and structure in every haircut following the classic techniques defined by Vidal Sassoon. Using her shears almost as a “magic wand,” Lexi is dedicated to becoming one of Omaha’s leading stylists sought out for her cutting dexterity. To further enhance her haircutting work, Lexi excels in creating some of the most gorgeous haircolor found outside of fashion “glossies”. She is exceptionally accomplished at the creative art of free-hand hair painting and dimensional color blocking. Through color, Lexi is able to further enhance her guest’s intrinsic beauty.
Styling is Lexi’s secret weapon; bobby pins and brushes are her tools. Lexi polishes each guest through classic blowdrying, celebrity coifs du jour, and innovative avant-garde styles. She has an internal creative spirit and defines her enthusiasm for hairdressing through her imaginative artistry.
