Morton cosmetologist takes salon business, Hair Traveler, on the road
Wednesday, August 01, 2018
The idea of making business mobile is not a new one.
There are many who have taken what they do for a living on the road, whether it be in the form of a food truck or in the world of technology.
However, what Sarah Madsen of Morton is doing, at least in Minnesota, is something new.
She has put her salon on wheels.
Known as the Hair Traveler, Madsen’s mobile salon goes from town to town offering a variety of services to customers – new and those who have been loyal to her for years. No, said Madsen, the idea of mobile salons is not new in the United States, as a number of other states have provided it as an option.
Having discussed the concept for some time, the Minnesota Board of Cosmetology approved the use of mobile salons in Minnesota as of July 1, 2017. That is when Madsen started thinking. What she came up with is a business that reflects what she is as a cosmetologist as well as giving it a look that reflects what it means to be a Minnesotan.
