Mosaic Salons – Total BETTY
Megan Bayko, the owner of Mosaic Salons – Total BETTY, honed her hairstyling chops at the Aveda Institute. But her inspiration came from someplace else: 1940s actress Betty Gable, the “original pin-up girl.” Megan sees a ‘Total BETTY’ as someone with a beautiful and timeless look, and she strives to bring out the ‘Betty’ in every client. To do this, she performs haircuts, coloring, and keratin treatments. Megan uses Bed Head and Goldwell products, and continues to attend workshops and seminars in order to stay apace of the latest hairstyling techniques.
“Megan was fun and did a great job on my cut.”
“Megan gave me the perfect cut and color and the salon was beautiful!”
“She listened to me and really gave me a great haircut.”
