Meet Trailblazer Madison Villo

Today we’d like to introduce you to Madison Villo.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Madison. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
The first time I cut someone’s hair was in 2008 I think. I intently watched my hairstylist every time she would cut my hair to figure out what she was doing. I found a straight razor and decided to try it on my own hair. After giving it a go on myself and my friends, I knew that I wanted to be a hairstylist. I graduated from cosmetology school in 2013. I’ve spent every day since working up, growing, and discovering my niche.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has not been easy. I had a hard time finding a salon I felt at home at. If a workplace is making you miserable or costing your mental health it’s not worth it! There will be a place for you, sometimes it just takes a little while to find it.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about your business – what should we know?
I do both color and cuts but I specialize in razor cutting & shags. I love creating haircuts for my clients that look good without having to put a ton of effort into. I am so inspired by ’70s shags and ’80s rocker hair.

Which women have inspired you in your life?
So many. I find someone new to be inspired by all the time. My mom, my friends, the stylists I work with, all the successful stylists I follow. All with different traits to be inspired by. Caregivers, business owners, artists, etc. All making the world a better place a little bit at a time.
