Our History

Millions of people have thinning hair. But despite its prevalence, very few stylists are knowledgeable about the cause—and the treatment options—of hair loss. Les and Josh Eads are exceptions.

Working with hair since age 14


Les, president of Carmel and Michiana Hair Technologies, has been an in-demand stylist since he set up shop in his mother’s bathroom at age 14. Soon after graduation from the Indianapolis National Barber School, his unmistakable skills landed him a job as an official platform artist for Redken. Early on, he became as interested in restoring hair as he was in cutting it. Now, after forty years in the hair restoration business, he’s one of the most experienced AND award-winning pros in the United States.

A father and son business

Josh, vice president of Carmel and Michiana Hair Technologies, is equally passionate about hair restoration. Not only does he have access to his father’s vast experience, but his own mastery of the subject has made him a sought-after specialist in his own right. Josh’s primary focus is the women’s replacement market.  His easy-going personality makes his clients feel welcome and cared for. A woman’s hair is closely tied to her feeling of self-worth. Josh understands that and goes out of his way to make sure his clients look better than ever before.
