The dream of Eight Six Zero was imagined in 2016, when Payten [Owner of Eight Six Zero Salon] was 19 years old and fresh in cosmo school. In her small kitchen at home She would ask friends and family to let her practice after school all the new techniques she was learning. Scary right? Well… their sacrifice of having great hair slowly paid of because in 2020, that vision came to life. Through a year of pandemic, stress, and not knowing what the future held, she got a call that would change the course of her life- forever. Why Eight Six Zero? The name came from the house number of her childhood home where she was given the opportunity to make her dreams a reality. The name of the salon is directly an appreciation to those who believed in her future and wanting to honor their sacrifice to help her grow.
