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. Owner Tracy Palmer leads the group, which offers cut, color, and styling services that utilize professional products from Kevin.Murphy and Sexy Hair. 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.
