Chivington - Thompson
Hey Ya’ll! I’m Madi Rose , Co- Owner of Native Mane salon. I’ve been behind the chair for 9 years now, and I am so thankful to do what I love the most every single day!
I was born in Chicago, but moved to Peachtree City, GA at the age of 11 and have called Atlanta home for the past decade! I now reside south of the city in a sweet little town called palmetto with my Husband, 2 pups, and LOTS of plants. If I’m not at the salon slinging’ hair, you can find me decorating my home, hanging with my dogs, and tending to my 70+ house plants ( yes, you read that right).
I always say doing hair is just in my blood, and it really was! I was named after my grandmother and Former Stylist/Salon owner “Mattie Mae” who opened her own salon in Pompano Beach, FL in the late 30’s at the age of 24. I Unknowingly and proudly followed in her footsteps opening my first salon “Rose and Mae Hair” at the same age.
Color has always been my calling, from the second I walked through the doors at the Aveda institute-Atlanta, I was determined to make it the focus of my career. Upon graduating hair school in 2012, I moved to an island called Block Island, located off the shore of Rhode Island, working at a seasonal salon overlooking the ocean where I trained under the owner. After summer was over I returned to Atlanta and continued my career at Salon Red, Candler Park where I worked for 4 years and had the opportunity to train with amazing companies such as Wella & The Bumble&Bumble University in Manhattan. While attending my second class at Bumble University in Manhattan, I decided I wanted to do hair in the big city. By the time I left I landed a job at Soon Beauty Lab, Manhattan where I continued my education training at the Wella Studios and painting hair in the big city! Six months in, I realized the south is where my heart truly belonged and returned to Atlanta where I soon made the leap to open a space where I felt myself and other stylist’s could truly thrive, and make our clients as comfortable as possible while being able to do what we love to our full potential.
