When casually walking through Milwaukee’s streets how do you notice diversity? Do you think about how the world serves you? Or question if it will? Tailored Salon has always been a safe place for all members of the LGBTQIA+ community. However, prior to 2020 we did not fully consider the need to explicitly state this. We did not realize the struggle that people often face in finding a safe and welcoming home for their salon experience.
We continue to prioritize our advancement on how to care well for each and every person. As the world continues to grow and evolve, so does Tailored Salon. In 2020, we made major strides on bringing on a few talented group of young stylists who just happen to be queer. They have brought so much light and color to our space allowing us to hear the struggles and the lack of representation these communities have. It has always been Tailored’s mission to be a safe and welcoming place that allows anybody to be their most authentic self.
Have you heard about Brady? She is a proud woman of trans experience who has become a trailblazer in her community. Paving a new way and providing new experiences for those in the Trans Community. Talking with her, her passion is infectious as she explains the struggles of living her truth and the drive she has to spread awareness. “The lack of compassion and understanding for the transgender community needs to not only be talked about but addressed!” she exclaims. Although, a lot of these stories are not glamorous nor are they for the faint of heart, you would never know by looking at her. As Brady continues her work, she has elevated our salon and industry with a new wave of services for Tailored Salon specific to the trans experience.
Introducing, The Trans Experience at Tailored, an opportunity for specific gender affirming services that will help guide you through your own transition. The Trans Experience includes Facial Feminization Package, wig consultations, and any hair service! These services have no gender as they are an opportunity for us to be a helping hand on your journey. “I have always wished to be seen and heard but never felt understood, especially in the salon space,” says Brady. She has expressed how important it is to see what you feel on the inside come to life, which is why the Facial Feminization Package means so much to her. This is a one-stop shop for all your makeup needs from color correcting, eyebrow lifting, eyeshadow 101, and contouring. We want you to know that you are not alone and that together we can tailor a look suited just for you.
