our story

 My name is Bethanne Schroeder, and I am a native of the Cedar Valley! I have been in the hair industry for over 6 years, with many more to come. Growing up, getting my hair done was an obsession. It always gave me the best feeling in the world. That feeling led me to the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis for cosmetology, and I haven't looked back since! Being hairstylist allows me to create, and it brings me such joy when a client tells me they love their hair. I wouldn't change it for anything else!

With hair being such a huge passion of mine, I am constantly traveling to participate in the best education. Education is a huge part of my career, and will always strive to be better! There is always something more to learn, and I enjoy being a constant student!

My favorite looks to create are healthy dimensional blondes, brunettes, and redheads! I love to make colors look very natural and organic. A true love of mine is balayage which is the art of hand painting highlights, and it will brighten my day if I get to do one! I am very detailed and will always take the time to make things "just right". I also love working as a team with my salon family. One of my motto's is "teamwork makes the dream work," so I love that I get to work in an environment that encourages that.

When I am not at the salon, or obsessing over hair, I love to be home with my husband Jace and fur baby Pabst. Traveling is a passion of mine, and will always be planning my next adventure! Decorating my house is a second passion. I love to find the perfect one-of-a-kind pieces that make my home unique.

In the salon, I create an environment where you can relax in a fun, comfortable space, and allow me to do all the work. It's really important to me to create a beautiful look that will make you happy while also feeling confident in the ability to recreate the look at home! I would love to see you in my chair and collaborate on some amazing hair!



Hi friends!
 I'm Morgan Traetow, the founder of Hint + Hue. I am so happy to see you here! I have created an environment specifically curated just for you.
My passion for hair started at a young age. I always felt like this was my destiny, I was meant to empower others and make them feel beautiful inside and out.
I have been a licensed cosmetologist for 8 years and I feel like it has been two. When you love your job the time just flies!
My favorite looks to create are dimensional, long-lasting blondes and beautiful natural lash extensions. I'm always trying to learn and educate myself to be a better stylist for you!
​If you catch me outside of the salon I'm probably with my family. I'm a proud mama of my baby boy Leo. I also have a loving hubby of 2 years and a fluffy pup we call Frankie.
Where you can find me:
 Cuddling up on the couch with my hubby watching The Office.
Drinking a Moscow mule with my family and friends preferably in, or by water.
Listening to true crime podcasts when on walks with Leo man and Miss Frankie.
Bargain shopping, I can tell you where all the good deals are at!
Going to Prairie Du Chien in the summer to our little "Glamper"
​As a mama I know how hectic life can get. Feeling like you just can't get ahead of that ever growing list and just wanting a break.
I want to be that little break and oasis for you, even if it's just for a couple of hours.
So come in, relax, grab a snack and a coffee. or better yet make it a wine! Let the stresses of the day melt off  and know that you are in great hands!


owner & Stylist


our team




 My name is Autumn Grace and I have been a hair colorist for five years. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, camping, and finding the most aesthetically pleasing coffee shops on my cross country road trips.

I particularly love expanding my knowledge by traveling to different cities for color, and hair cutting education. As a Portland native I was constantly surrounded by tons of creativity, fashion, and changing trends growing up. As a result I enjoy being able to recreate trends and techniques that I love behind the chair.

 I currently specialize in lived in colors, blond transformations, and textured hair cuts. I believe that hair goals are attainable with the right education, patience, and a killer at home routine.

 I look forward to working with you on your journey to your dream hair. For some examples of my work feel free to check out my Instagram @hairbyautumngrace
