About Chelsea

Hi, my name is Chelsea. I’ve been in the hair industry for over 10 years. My sister and I grew up doing each other’s hair, nails and make-up, so being a stylist was something that I had always had an interest in. The thing I love most about the hair industry and being behind the chair is that fashion is always changing! It keeps me on my toes. I love learning new things and the latest trends.

When I have a free afternoon out of the salon, I jam to Broadway musicals while baking (especially when it’s cold outside). When the weather does permit, being outside is the best. I really enjoy running! I also love going to my parents’ place on the water, spending time on Lake Michigan, and exploring all around Chicago.

Sandwiched before my time in Chicago and after school, I did hair in Northwest Indiana for a couple of years. I briefly escaped the Midwest and traveled around the world from Italy to the Philippines. I had a desire to teach, so in 2015 I got my instructor’s license and moved out to San Diego to teach at a beauty school for three years. I decided to follow my dream and move to Chicago in 2019 so I could also be closer to my family.
