About Us


Taryn has had a passion for the hair and beauty industry most of her life.  She has been licensed for more than 12 years, and in that time she has mastered a wide range of hair techniques including long hair, cutting, and up-dos.  However her specialty and passion is color. Taryn uses a wide range of Redken, Paul Mitchell, and Wella color products, including the new revolutionary hair smoothing treatment system, Keratin Complex.

Taryn believes in continual education and strives to stay at the forefront of her field with her knowledge of new products and services available in order to provide excellent service to her clientele. 

She specializes in cutting edge coloring techniques, foil highlights and low lights, color correction, gray reduction, fashion cuts, modern cuts, razor cuts, men’s cuts, kid’s cuts, styling, and special occasion hair dressing.  She stays updated on all the latest trends so that she can give you the look you want.

Taryn places high value on listening to her clients, understanding their needs and respecting their hair....and she strives for unlimited creativity!  Having lived in multiple cities in the US she has a keen eye for what will suit your needs. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her 6 year old son, cruising around in her jeep with the top down, and finding a good adventure!

I started in the industry by working at a Salon 505 the day spa and where I began building my clientele. After 3 years I decided to rent a room at Grapevine Salon, where I continued to build my clientele, education, and work ethic for another 3 years. I decided I wanted to have my own salon but before taking on that challenge I decided to go manage another salon first. After successfully taking on this role for a year, the owner approached me to help her open a second location. After 3 years and successfully opening the second salon, it was my turn! I hand picked the location, worked with the architect to design the build-out, and watched (in my pink hardhat) as my dream came to life! On March 31st 2012 Malihini opened its doors and we haven't looked back! 

Malihini is Hawaiian for new comer or visitor. My parents lived in Alaska and wanted to experience the flip side so they moved to Hawaii! When I was thinking up a concept I wanted something gender neutral and to create a relaxing, soothing, yet uplifting setting. Our water blue, soft sand yellow, and driftwood mocha tones throughout the salon help sooth your soul just like a day at the beach!
