Salon KB is celebrating their 10 year anniversary! Owner of Salon KB, Kacy Bott, opened the salon in July of 2009 at 2935 S. Fish Hatchery Road in Fitchburg and has been at that same location ever since.
Kacy's love for styling and her experience are reflected in her clientele, and has many long-running clients, some from when she was still an apprentice. Her clients are booked out months in advance and her business model adapted to a changing salon climate. She has a core staff along with a rotation of style apprentice to teach a new generation of beauticians.
As of September 1st, 2019, Salon KB became a blended salon. A new trend, Kacy said, has stylists rent chairs in an established space. The renters have their own product and their own clientele, create their own schedules and pay Salon KB rent every month.
Salon KB still has apprentices, but once they’ve graduated, their employee contract turns into a rental contract. The blended salon reduces an industry trend where stylist and employers become territorial over clientele.
Kacy is also passionate about community support, and holds annual fundraising drives. The salon donates a percentage of the retail sale to such as area organizations like the Dane County Humane Society, Susan G. Komen Foundation and Arbor Day Foundation. This year, Bott is planning a camping gear drive for people who are homeless.
