My name is Madison and I am the owner of 260 Studio in Denver, CO! I am so excited to reintroduce myself to my new followers and give some more insight to my life for all my current and past clients! If you are new here, welcome! If you are a current or past client of mine, thanks for stopping by and saying hello! Now, let's get personal....
"I had one mission when I finally was out in Colorado and that was to become NBR certified and spoiler alert, I DID IT!"
HOW IT STARTED
Everyone always asks me, "Where did the name 260 Studio come from?" Well, I am originally from Decatur, IN and the area code for Decatur is 2-6-0, hence 260 Studio. I wanted a name that was personal to me and Decatur is where it all started. Without it I wouldn't be where I am at today! Fast forward 22 years and after I had finished beauty school, lived in Indianapolis for a few years I decided to move out to Colorado in 2018. And I came out for one reason; Natural Beaded Row Hair Extensions. Before I moved out here I was already talking with another stylist who was in the Natural Beaded Row hair extension program and when I officially moved out I started assisting her while I was getting my Natural Beaded Row certification. I was able to find this program through YouTube. And from the moment I started watching Danielle’s (owner and creator of NBR) videos I instantly fell in love! I had one mission when I finally was out in Colorado and that was to become NBR certified and spoiler alert, I DID IT! I moved out in October of 2018 and by the end of 2018 I was officially certified!
"But the thing is I NEVER GAVE UP ON MY DREAMS!"
In 2019 I decided to step out on my own. I wanted to be able to grow as a stylist and I looked around at some places to booth rent, but nothing felt right. And that’s when I found the Metlo. I instantly fell in love and knew this is where it will all begin. I started in suite 409 with one chair and 2 NBR clients to keep me afloat. But the thing is I NEVER GAVE UP ON MY DREAMS! I struggled at times and while trying to build my clientele up I worked 3 other jobs. 2019 was the year to find out who I was and what I wanted to do moving forward.
HOW IT'S GOING
Fast forward to 2020, a new suite became available at the Metlo and I knew what I needed to do. I snatched it up so quickly and I could feel in my heart that this place is where I was meant to be. My official launch date to open 260 Studio was supposed to be April 1st but then well…...GLOBAL PANDEMIC! Since all salons had to be closed, I patiently waited until the restrictions were lifted and the magical words were said. On May 9th, I took my first client and officially opened my 2 chair salon! My second chair is available for rent so if you are looking to rent out my chair please visit my website www.260studio.com and click on “Want to join the team?” tab at the top of the home page. I currently have one booth renter who is from Chattanooga, TN. She has clientele out here and rents the chair every 6-8 weeks!
"I have always wanted the best clients in my chair and boy oh boy do I ever! I LOVE all my clients! You guys are the reason I wanted to get into NBR!"
Everyone tells you to chase your dreams and I was already living my dream, so at the end of 2020 I decided to become a full time stylist in my own salon! This was the first time I had ever been a full time stylist. I was always hustling to get where I needed to be and having extra income on the side helped me to get there. It is the most AMAZING feeling to be my own boss and to be able to create MY own space! I have always wanted the best clients in my chair and boy oh boy do I ever! I LOVE all my clients! You guys are the reason I wanted to get into NBR! I am drawn to people who are ambitious and have big dreams and goals they want to accomplish and I am here to be your best friend, hair stylist hype man!!
I wanted my salon to be different from all the other salons so I stick close to my 3 niches.
The 3 niches in my salon are:
Natural Beaded Row Hair Extensions
