Full service wedding hair & makeup

Brideheads was established seven years ago when Angie discovered that nobody catered to the needs of brides wanting on location services, rather they quietly offered it on the side if you begged, complete with inflated pricing. We not only have reasonable prices, but we also have teams of independent stylists and makeup artists that can handle any bridal party. Going into our 6th year we will have over 150 weddings booked for 2015 alone. We've won several awards and have nothing but happy glowing reviews all over the internet. The growth and success of Rockabettys is due to the ever exploding demand and success of Brideheads. For more information follow our link to



We do relaxing facials tailored to your skin's needs using pharmagel products. We use steamed towels to open your pores. While your mask is on we do a hand massage with paraffin.


Rid yourself of unwanted hair

We do the details: waxing. Bikinis, brazilians, legs, and eyebrows. No male nether regions please. Angie, the boss lady, also does very meticulous eyebrow waxing.

Our interesting story

Rockabetty's Salon and Spa is a vintage inspired salon with all the modern conveniences. Located at 1216 S Park Street in a spacious building, in beautiful Madison, Wisconsin. We do hair, nails, and skin care for men and women. Our shellac (no chip) manicures are done very artistically and are very long lasting. Our methods are best for being gentle to your natural nails. Our pedicures are like nothing you have ever experienced featuring our own Betty buffer for a less ticklish callous exfoliating option.

We are excellent listeners and strive to make sure you walk out with the look you want. We offer pin-up and modern hairstyling, along with cuts for men, women, and kids. We can do whatever you desire for hair color from conservative gray coverage to a rainbow of bright hues. If skin care is what you seek, we offer facial and body waxing, relaxing facials and back facials, and spray tanning. Bridal is our specialty offering on location hair and makeup and nail parties in our salon.

We do not employ a receptionist, but have an extremely convenient online booking system. You can book from your phone, tablet, or computer, and you can even cancel and reschedule your appointment time. Phone calls and emails are welcome too, but for fastest service we suggest self scheduling.


Frequently Asked Questions

Q) How long have you been here?

A) Labor day weekend it will be 5 years since the business opened. The doors of our new space opened August 7, 2015..

Q) Do you own it together?

A) No, Angie is the owner.

Q) How many people work here?

A) 5 people. We are always looking for cosmetologists/nail techs that are talented. If you know somebody, send them our way.

Q) What is a shellac manicure? Will it ruin my nails? Is it fake nails?

A) There are a few different names for the same service. Shellac is one of them. There's also gel manicure, no chip manicure, soak off manicure, uv manicure....Of course it doesn't ruin your nails. Why would we do it if it did? Applied and removed correctly, you can grow your natural nails out and they will be long and strong and beautiful and remain chip free for up to 2 weeks, sometimes even longer. They are not nail extensions, they will not add length, it is a super lasting polish. We specialize in this service.

Q) Are you open on Sundays? Mondays?

A) Sundays no we are not, sorry, Mondays yes we are! Although it currently says on a google listing we are closed mondays, not true. I have tried to change the google listing with no success.

Q) Do your vintage hair dryer chairs in the reception area work?

A. Yes they do! Gone are the days of ladies sitting underneath with their roller sets, but we frequently use them to process color, as a place to sit while waiting for your appointment, or as heaters during a polar vortex.

Q) Do you accept walk ins?

A) Only if we just happen to be available when you are walking in. In most cases we are booked. We do have a walk in sign that we use that says "walk in's welcome" for particularly slow days or days with cancellations. We realize guys hate making appointments and they want to just walk in, but to avoid a super long wait, or to avoid being denied, book online, or call ahead :)

Q) Do you have morning appointments available?

A) We have changed our hours to begin as early as 8am. If it's a morning time that you prefer, inquire before you leave, or email us ahead. We'll do our very best to accommodate your needs.

Q) Do you have parking?

A) We sure do. Right outside the front door we have a lot that holds 4 cars and a large overflow lot behind us. There's also street parking, but its limited to 2 hours.

Q) Are you a nail salon?

A) No, nails is just one of the many services we provide. We do haircuts, colors, specialty styling, extensions, waxing, facials, spray tanning and makeup. Men, women, and children (that are well behaved) are all welcome.

Q) Habla espanol?

A) Paquito, muy muy paquito. No es bueno.
