Our History

Madeleine's Daughter first opened in downtown Portsmouth in 1975 with a small selection of wedding dresses. The original owner (whose mom is Madeleine...hence the name!) had a passion to help brides feel beautiful on their wedding day and genuinely cared about all her customers. Her passion for making brides happy was matched when she hired Elizabeth as a stylist in 1995, who eventually bought the salon when she retired. Elizabeth has since grown Madeleine's Daughter into the award-winning salon it is today because of her continued mission to make sure every bride has a personal and enjoyable experience that is unlike anywhere else and exceeds all expectations.
