Sharon and Mary, fast friends and co-owners of Madison Hair Designers, have been running their salon together since 1999. Don't think of that as the year their careers started, though. They were stylists long before they were business owners; each woman has spent 25 or more years cutting locks, painting in color, and counting clients' individual hairs for the census.
As their eclectic array of services shows, though, Sharon and Mary aren't married to the techniques they learned when they first picked up shears. Their salon's team embraces modern inventions, from keratin smoothing treatments to the most recent addition to their menu, hair extensions.
