As a 30-year veteran of the beauty industry, Amy L. Olson has learned that a stylist has the power to influence the confidence levels of their clients. Understanding that with this great power comes even greater responsibility, Olson works to boost the self-esteem of anyone who sits in her chair with a perfectly executed service. So with a humble and humorous personality, she snips and styles men’s, women’s, and children’s hair and adds prismatic pop with Redken's color line of Shades EQ, Color Gels, or ammonia-free Chromatics. For those interested in giving frizz the boot, she performs deep-conditioning treatments using premium Surface haircare products. Furthermore, Olson’s beauty expertise extends beyond the realm of hair—she’s also a seasoned pedicurist and waxing specialist.
The stylists at Hairadise Salon & Spa are dedicated to continually honing their skills to provide customer satisfaction. They apply their ever-growing aesthetic knowledge to hair services, updating looks with cuts, colors, and special-occasion styles. Aestheticians pamper nails with polishes and embellishments, and customize facials to address complexions’ unique needs. The salon also offers tanning sessions to ensure patrons’ pallor doesn’t get them mistaken for abominable snowmen.
True to its utopia-evoking name, Hairadise aims to aid the world beyond its walls by giving back to local organizations. The salon’s efforts have supported groups including Agrace HospiceCare and the Susan G. Koman Foundation.
For more than a decade, the stylists at Inspired by You Salon have been coloring, cutting, and styling hair with products from high-end brands such as Goldwell, Aquage, and Redken. And staffers don’t just tend to tendrils; they also decorate digits with OPI polishes and wax away errant facial fuzz.
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.

Studio 608's skilled aestheticians can also exile unflattering fuzz from brow outskirts with their signature waxing services.
Before you even get to Elevation Salon and Spa, you can figure out exactly which practitioner you should be working with. Just take a look at the staff's bios, which include not only their experience levels, but also their specialties. You can find a good match whether you're looking for a fresh new bob, a prenatal massage, or just a stylist with your favorite vowel in their name.
The service menu is just as diverse as the staff. In the salon, stylists use Redken and Bumble and bumble products during cut and color treatments, and nail technicians massage hands and feet with MoroccanOil bodycare products before coating nails with OPI and Shellac polishes. In the spa, massage therapists can treat tension with services that range from hot-stone massage to reiki. For their part, aestheticians set to work removing dirt and oil with custom facials and excess fuzz with waxing.

Though the stylists at Whitney Hair & Wellness wield scissors with seasoned skill, not all of their services entail subtraction. Some are all about addition, such as the thinning-hair solutions that owner Lindsey Reinke has been practicing for a decade. From her business inside the Yellowstone Salons building, Reinke first consults with clients to better address the symptoms of alopecia, chemotherapy, and aging. She helps guests elongate their strands with natural and synthetic extensions, or takes measurements for a wig instead of simply asking what size bucket they wore on their heads as children. Additionally, her custom hairpieces work to counteract hair loss.
The stylists also administer cut and color treatments, nourishing tresses with Redken products during personalized appointments. Wave-creating serums impart fresh textures, and updos primp patrons for special events.
