Amid soothing violet decor befitting the salon’s name, High Violet Salon & Spa’s artistic stylist, expert aesthetician, and therapeutic masseuse use a three-pronged approach to help clients feel beautiful inside and out. Their menu of services is carried out within a newly renovated space accented by wood floors, soft lighting, and a separate spa-treatment room. Hair is colored and conditioned with products such as Moroccanoil, whereas nails are decorated in polishes from OPI. Facials and peels help rejuvenate skin, and Swedish, hot-stone, and deep-tissue techniques release stores of tension and stores acorns hidden under the shoulder blades.
Inside the full-service family haircare salon, beauty professionals groom nails, remove tension, and snip away split ends with hair, nail, and massage services. Stylists add color or sweep curled strands into fancy updos. Meanwhile, nail technicians not only decorate nails, but also soak feet and remove dead skin cells with a mask scrub.
Katie Meyer's scissors are very well travelled. After taking classes in New York City the Redken Exchange, she set her sites on Madison, Wisconsin, and in early 2008, kicked up new salon turf with her own Studio 608. While relaxing in a cozy styling chair, clients can solicit a face-flattering cut, subtle color highlights, or tame frizz with a keratin smoothing treatment. Studio 608's skilled aestheticians can also exile unflattering fuzz from brow outskirts with their signature waxing services.
The stylists at Glo Salon are always happy to help clients transform their looks, whether that's in the form of a simple haircut or a dramatic pop of color.

She and her crew also perform Keratin Complex hair-smoothing treatments, which can eliminate up to 95% of frizz for three to five months. Meanwhile, the Babe hair extensions—100% human-hair extensions—come in 25 colors and can be curled, flat-ironed, and used to store post-it-note reminders, just like your natural hair.
