When an Allure magazine staffer received a haircut from Madison Thomas, Madison hinted that the staffer's blunt-cut bob wasn't all that flattering. So Madison created some layers to bring out the staffer's natural wavy texture and shortened pieces around her face to emphasize her cheekbones. The staffer was thrilled with the result and praised the stylist "brave enough to dole out tough love."
Madison honed her sharp eye working in the beauty industry for 20 years. She mastered many of her skills abroad at the Toni & Guy training center in Milan and learned how to design hair for photo shoots in London. She now plies her trade at BYB at Salon Amenity (short for "be your best"). In addition to creating flattering cuts and painting strands with ammonia-free color, Madison—who is also a trained aesthetician—fights acne and wrinkles with relaxing Bioelements facials. She also performs oxygen-infusion treatments, which uses a machine to pump oxygen into skin and encourage cellular renewal.
