Exceptional Women 2020
Au Fait

Master hairstylist Jesse Marcks wanted to create a salon environment for clients that felt warm, creative and modern. She created a learning environment that allows more time with clients and more time training a new generation of stylists. Staff members train under Marcks for a minimum of one year and take part in advanced education at least six times a year.

Marcks opened Au Fait in Madison in 2012, relying primarily on word-of-mouth advertising. She and her team of five are like family and believe in giving back to the community through local nonprofit organizations in Madison such as Domestic Abuse Intervention Services, Porchlight and Santas Without Chimneys.

Au Fait has a reputation for providing in-depth client consultations, forecasting the latest trends (new in 2020: reverse lobs, center parts, pastels and ponytails), and major makeovers.

“I love to create customized looks to bring out the best in each client,” Marcks said.
