Tailored Salon Team

With many years of experience, the extensively trained team works hard to focus your experience to become something new, and it strives to guide you to discover an image all your own.

With diverse and elite backgrounds as educators in the beauty industry, the Tailored education team continually trains the entire team. The new talent in the salon dives deep into our extensive Refinement Program, where they hone a skill set second to none. The Tailored training program not only develops our team to be disciplined technically, but it promotes creativity, while refining their eye for what is suitable for you.

Upon completion of her training at the Aveda Institute of Beauty and Wellness, Ashley knew it was only a matter of time before she would want to grow a team of stylists within her own salon. Tailored Salon is that dream manifested and a vision Ashley has had from the start of her journey in the beauty industry.

After six years serving guests and working as a new talent trainer in a high-end salon, Ashley gave into her entrepreneurial spirit, venturing out on her own in 2013. As her vision needed a reality, Ashley and Laura decided to combine their unique expertise and create the Tailored team and training program.

The reality of co-owning her own salon is far more than she could have hoped for, and Ashley is thrilled to serve the Walker’s Point community, bringing Milwaukee’s salon expectation to a new level.

Serving guests since 2005, Laura has developed a sincere passion to lead growing stylists into their full potential through guidance in the refinement of their craft. This desire became the catalyst for the concept of Tailored Salon.

When Laura isn’t collaborating with the Tailored Team or working with guests in the salon, she travels the country training professionals as a redCHOCOLATE hair color educator. She views this opportunity as a privilege, as working side-by-side with her own mentors and various salon owners, she is able to glean valuable leadership knowledge.

A Milwaukee native, Laura has fallen in love with the energy that it radiates, and she hopes that Tailored will become a contributing presence to the community that it serves.

Hair Designer

Nora graduated from the Institute of Beauty and Wellness in 2011 at the top of her class, earning herself the opportunity to work one-on-one with talented artists and educators from around the world.  She has been working behind the chair ever since, honing her cutting and coloring skill set and refining her process of a customized consultation and service experience.

For Nora, the most fascinating element of hairdressing is when creativity meets precision. She believes her work is not only a creation on a living canvas, but also a science, a challenge, and a passion rooted in her love for art and design. Nora particularly enjoys the challenge of color transformations, and her barbering skills are second-to-none.

Nora is inspired most by the people around her, different cultures, and the ever-changing world of fashion. Her favorite things outside of her work in the salon are good company, collecting cookbooks, camping, throwing a dynamite dinner party, and a Sunday afternoon nap…of course!

Hair Designer

Betsy grew up in the beauty industry and knew that becoming a hair designer was a perfect fit once she began cosmetology school. Graduating in 2014, she launched into her career, taking in every educational opportunity she could find.

Betsy is extremely compassionate. Her favorite aspect of her work is helping each guest explore a new approach to his/her hair. Her passion for education and consistency in technical skill is obvious. This drive keeps her demand growing; she loves the growth it provides her as an artist.

Hair Designer

As a senior hair designer with 15 years of experience, Renee is a true expert at meeting the needs of her guests and serving them with sincere passion. Her love for the hair and service industry is made obvious by her careful attention to detail.

Renee believes that communication is the key to the best possible service outcome and her priority has always been to make each salon visit as special as the first. The most rewarding aspect of her work as a hairdresser is being the catalyst by which people are made to feel beautiful and unique.

As her household’s “director of operations”, Renee enjoys all that is involved with being a mother of three, as well as continually working to expand her repertoire as a skilled hairdresser.

Hair Designer/ Make-up Artist

Rebecca fell in love with the beauty industry at an early age. After starting her career with a premier modeling agency in Chicago, her attention turned to the makeup artists and hair designers. In 2011, she graduated from the Institute of Beauty and Wellness, completing her aesthetics program. Always striving to learn more herself, Rebecca returned to school in 2014 to continue her education in cosmetology.

Since joining the Tailored team in 2015, Rebecca most enjoys helping her guests discover how to look and feel their best. She loves transforming her guests’ entire looks. Her skill-set in hair design, combined with extensive knowledge of skincare and makeup artistry, make her a go-to beauty expert.

Salon Manager

Kacy came to Tailored Salon from a career in Corporate America, looking for a change. The beauty industry was a perfect fit and her transition into the salon has been a welcomed one. She manages daily operations by supporting the team and guests alike. She’s often the first face you’ll see and she enjoys the guest interaction afforded to her through this position.

An East Coast native, Kacy has come to love Milwaukee. She enjoys the variety of arts available to her and takes every opportunity to soak in what the city offers.

After immersing herself in the salon culture and getting to know guests, Hannah will be joining Tailored’s hair designer training program upon her graduation in September 2017. As a new hair designer, she is thrilled to start serving her guests behind the chair. She is most excited to continue absorbing new knowledge and growing as an artist.
