My name is Debbie Keesler...I much prefer to be called Deb. I have been a hairstylist since 1981, and working Downtown since 1988. It is both a privilege and a blessing that I have known many of my clients for quite a long time! I've actually had some of the same clients for 30 years now! I mostly enjoy doing traditional haircuts on men & women, and professional hair colors that look natural.
My services offered start at:
- Men's cut/style $35.
- Women start at $45 for a cut/style.
Color and highlights services:
- Single color application start at $55 for base + product used.
- Highlights starting at $85 + product used.
- Semi-gloss colors starting at $50 + products.
I am usually in the salon Tuesdays thru Fridays (with the exception of vacations or holidays). I will always get back to my clients and try to accommodate the best time for their appointment.

Hello my name is Nadia -- I started in the salon industry in 1992 as an apprentice to salon owner, platform artist, and educator Sandra Reed. I have been working in downtown Milwaukee as an independent stylist since 1998. I update my cosmetology knowledge through continuing education and technique classes regularly.
My hair philosophy is to give my clients a haircut and or color that best complements their physical features and lifestyles.

My name is McKenzie Dawson and I have been in this business since 2005. I continue to love what I do. I recently took the leap into becoming my own business owner and it has been the best decision I have made. I have such an amazing clientele who has made this transition possible.
Since the beginning of my career I have really grown to love mastering men’s barbering. Being a Master Colorist is another specialty service I offer. I consistently continue to further my education so I can display my craft. From blondes or brunettes to purple and orange I love a challenge!
