A little bit about us....
Elite Hair and Wax Shop
is owned by Rachel Freitag and Chelsi Schlough. Our vision for the salon is for people to be able to walk in, make a cup of coffee or tea, relax, and get the quality service they've been looking for. We believe in continuing education and you never stop learning. The industry is always changing and we love getting our creative energy flowing when learning from the best. Our partnership came to us as a blessing and we have discovered we have the same drive for making each guest feel special and their individual lifestyles are important to achieving the look that's best for them. As our team continues to grow, we all share the same passion for giving each guest the ELITE experience.

Hailey- Hairstylist/ Curly Hair Specialist
Hailey has been working in a salon since she was 15 years old. After years of being behind the front desk, she knew she wanted to be behind the chair doing hair. She spent a few years working in Madison, which taught her so many great things that she has brought to Elite. She loves to cut curls! She took the Deva Curl training and became certified to cut curls a specific way. You will often see Hailey working on a balayage or color melt as she really enjoys working with creative colors. She looks forward to bridal parties, homecoming, and prom. Updos have always been a strong skill of hers! Hailey loves being with her family on Sundays, usually watching sports because her brother and sister give her no choice but to. She also enjoys spending time outdoors all year round with Blake, her high school sweetheart.
Madeline has always had a passion for beauty, art, and details. As a young child, she knew she wanted to be a cosmetologist. Working with bright fashion colors, the many shades of blonde, and color melting are a few of her favorite things to do. She also loves doing formal styles for weddings, prom, and homecoming. To Madeline, details are everything. From tedious designs with undercuts to haircuts and colors, she wants the best to be achieved with every appointment.
