The Men of Garbo’s

“The Men of Garbo’s”… It has a nice ring to it! Although it may sound like a hot new band’s name, The Men of Garbo’s are the fantastic male stylists who make up a small, but mighty, percentage of our team. We have been busy sharing why Garbo’s Salon and Spa offers the best men’s haircuts in Omaha, but we wanted to make sure our own guys get the credit they deserve.

Garbo's is Open!

The most recent guidelines extended by the department of health state that hair salons will be allowed to open next Monday. Therefore, we are excited to announce that all Garbo's Salon and Spa locations are open with a limited staff and reduced hours on Monday, May 4th.

Unfortunately, the guidelines also state that we will only be allowed to accomodate a maximum of ten guests at a time. With this being said, we have put together a reopening plan that follows these guidelines and allows some members of our team to come back to work. We understand this extremely limits the number of appointments our stylists can take so those returning to work have expanded their schedules to help accomodate those who need an appointment.

If you have any questions at all regarding the status of your appointment please reach out to us at info@garbossalons.com

For those of you who do not have an appointment in May but would like to schedule one, please use our online booking portal. It has been updated to reflect the schedules of those who will be available.

In addition to the ten person rule, the health department has extended additional restrictions on us. Please take the time to read through them before arriving for your appointment.

Due to government mandated health & safety requirements placed on our industry we have added a modest $4 fee to your ticket to offset the additional expenses. We appreciate your understanding and support. 

We understand our reopening in this way is not ideal and may be frustrating to you and your family. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and promise to do everything we can to make sure you receive the services you need. We will continue to monitor the guidelines set forth by the health department and will increase our capacity as soon as we are allowed to. For now, we ask for your patience and understanding as we do our best to reopen under these tough circumstances.

If you have any questions or need assistance please reach out to us at info@garbossalons.com. Thank you very much for your continued support and loyalty!

  • Clients must follow all guidelines listed below or they will not be permitted to keep their appointment

  • You must wear a mask to your appointment. No masks will be provided. You will not be permitted to enter the salon without a mask

  • All guests must come alone unless accompanying a minor that has an appointment. In that case, please coordinate your arrival with your stylist to make sure we are not exceeding the 10 person limit
  • All clients will be asked a series of screening questions and have their temperature checked before the appointment to ensure the safety of our team and other clients in the salon

  • Upon arrival for your appointment you will be asked to wait outside the salon. Your stylist will meet you at the door and and escort you inside
