As the former lead hairstylist for The Oprah Winfrey Show, BloOuts owner Vivian Arpino knows how to give her clients the celebrity treatment.

Trusted with the tresses of Jennifer Aniston, Christy Turlington and Drew Barrymore (just to name a few) and with work appearing in Allure and O, The Oprah Winfrey Magazine, she’s an expert at high-end styling while also incorporating personal vision.

Vivian opened BloOuts to share her passion for hair and for helping her clients look and feel their best.



Madlen developed a passion for hair at a very early age. The youngest of four girls, she was always put in charge of styling everyone’s hair. She’s been in the beauty business for more than 15 years, working at salons including Jacklin K Salon in Evanston and Gina Salon in Skokie. Her personal mission is to make all of her clients look and feel fabulous.


Kathy has been styling hair since she was a little girl. She always loved doing her own, but realized her true passion once she began cutting and styling for others. She dedicates her time to furthering her education, uncovering the latest trends, sharpening her skills and learning new techniques.


Making people feel beautiful is what Janet does best. Whether its clients from top salons on Oak Street where she worked for 25 years, on TV or in print, she makes sure everyone walks away feeling confident and sexy.



Sandra’s number-one goal is making her clients feel beautiful! She has loved doing hair since she was a little girl and continues to deepen her passion by regularly educating herself and sharpening her skills.


Val is an experienced, fifteen-year industry veteran from St. Petersburg, Russia who brings a unique European perspective. Whether his clients want an elegant up do or a wavy BloOut, his goal is to make them feel proud of and excited about the way they look.
