Hey Babe! Chelsea here, Owner and stylist at
Salon South of For Mill, Sc.
A little about me, I became interested in the beauty industry at a very young age... I think I was 10 when I asked my step dad to cut his hair for the first time, and he let me! It was the worst bowl cut I’ve ever seen but hey, you gotta start somewhere. Am I right?! Haha
After that, I became obsessed with make up and ALWAYS watched my mom do her beauty routine while she got ready for work every night and I was so fascinated by the whole process.
Once I went to school I thought all I wanted to do was stage work and celebrity hair and makeup but after becoming a mom (at the age of 21) I quickly realized that I enjoyed doing hair more for my local community of everyday woman, the mommas that never make the time for themselves and the ladies who are just wanting a fun change! What I love most is pampering you and seeing how happy and relaxed you are after your time with me.
When you come in to see me, I want you to feel at ease and trust that I will be doing what I think is best for your face shape, skin tone and lifestyle. We will come up with the perfect plan together once you show me your inspiration photos and tell me what your goals are. Before we start your service we will go over your goals in depth and set up a game plan for your first service as well as your future appointments so we are always on the path to perfect hair!
When I am out of the salon, I am spending my time with my husband and 2 daughters... I love to shop till I drop and always try to stay on top of the trends even though my oldest daughter doesn't think I am as cool as I believe I am! Crazy right?! Oh and I might have a tiny a problem with buying my girls all the cutest things! I know Im not the only one that over does is at Target. Lol!
Im also the Queen of 30 minutes or less dinners, I like to call them mom on the go meals(and they are pretty delish) you should check out my Pinterest board if you are ever out of options! Im a pretty crafty mom and can whip up some stuff on the fly but even though I sew in hair extensions, don't come at with anything else that needs to be sewn. Haha!
I am very meticulous and pride myself in the service that I provide. When I finished school and started to work at my first salon I was terrified! I did not feel like I was properly prepared to adequately do anyones hair but I was so eager to get started and was ready to put in ALL the hard work. I busted my butt and soaked up all the education I could get! After 3 years there I had my 2nd daughter and took some time off with her, unfortunutely during that time I lost my mom and that made me realize that life is too short and it was time for me to move onto my next goal in life. I had a short journey at another salon and quickly realized that it wasn't a great fit for myself or my guest. I felt like I was ready to create a space where not only myself and my guest could enjoy but other stylist as well. I wanted to create a dream team of like minded women and along came Salon South. This place is where all the magic happens... all my time, effort and love is poured into my business. My number one goal is for everyone to enjoy is as much as I do.
